C of A KGV - Single Watermark
Single-Line Perf 1d carmine-red BW #70, very fine large-part strike of the rare 'NEWCOMB[ES]/17JY-4/VIC' cds, the date putporting to be the First Day of Issue. Buyer beware! [The ACSC states "Date of Issue: 17 July 1914 (in Sydney & Melbourne)". Newcombe's, 14km W of Jeparit in the far west of the State, was a Receiving Office only 16/8/1911; closed 21/1/1926. There is an infinitesimally small possibility of the new 1d stamp having been available at Jeparit on the same day it was issued in Melbourne, but none whatsoever for it being available at a tiny & remote RO. No contemporary example of this cds is recorded. However, post-dated examples of 19DE28, 16JY32 & 8FE59 have been noted]
