C of A - Other Pre-Decimals
1956 Olympic Games 3½d carmine-lake BW #332E(1), well centred, unmounted, under-catalogued at $5000. Superb! An internationally important item for an Olympic Games collection. ÞÞWhile the ACSC characterises this item as an "essay", it is more correctly an unissued stamp. 27,000,000 booklet stamps had been printed when the decision was made to raise the basic rate to 4d. The Post Office destroyed all but a few sheets. At the two Archival Sales conducted in 1987 & 1988, a total of 40 stamps was sold, comprising 4 singles, 4 booklet panes of 6, and a plate number block of 12 (sold for $109,250 at our sale of 24/5/2008). The last single we handled sold for $12,075 at our auction of 24/5/2008.
