THIRD WATERMARK: 10/- grey & pink Type C with Shaved 'P' BW #48xf, very lightly mounted, Cat $3500.

The catalogue numbering of the sub-types is truly perverse. The Hooked 'C' occurs 5 times in each forme of 30 and should be designated Type C(a). The last of these units - [25] & [55] - also has the Shaved 'S' and, as a sub-type of Type C(a), should therefore be designated Type C(aa). The Shaved 'P' - which also occurs 5 times in the forme of 30 - should be designated Type C(b). The catalogue listing then needs to be re-ordered to be consistent with this situation.

NB: These comments, of course, apply also to the Type C overprints on the Third Watermark 1 grey and 2, the Small Multiple Watermark 10/- and the CofA Watermark 10/-.

THIRD WATERMARK: 1 grey Type B BW #53x from the upper-right of the pane with top & right-hand marginal watermark lines, very well centred, rough perforations cleaned-out, unmounted, Cat $6000. Advertised retail POR. Surely one of the finest examples extant. [This is a notoriously difficult stamp to obtain well centred. Vastly superior to the ugly unmounted example that sold for $3910 at a Melbourne auction in August 2011]
