C of A KANGAROOS - CofA Watermark
10/- grey & pink with Type C 'SPECIMEN' Overprint with Shaved 'P' BW #50xd, quite lightly mounted, Cat $750.
THIRD WATERMARK: 10/- grey & pink Type C1 - Shaved 'S' and Hooked 'C' - BW #48xd from the lower-left of the pane with lower and left-hand marginal watermark lines, lightly mounted, Cat $4500. Advertised retail POR. A rare stamp, of which only 12 examples can exist. [Type C1 occurs only once on the forme of 30, at positions 25 & 55 in the pane of 60, being the first unit on the fifth & tenth rows: see the ACSC at pages 2/13-14. This is the first example that we have offered]
THIRD WATERMARK: 10/- grey & pink Type C1a - Hooked 'C' only - BW #48xe from the left of the pane with left-hand marginal watermark line, rough perforations cleaned-out, lightly mounted, Cat $3500. Advertised retail POR. [Type C1a occurs on each unit in the first column of each pane: see the ACSC at pages 2/13-14]
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 -  &  - 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 C1 - Shaved 'S' and Hooked 'C' - BW #53xc from the lower-left of the pane with lower and left-hand marginal watermark lines, unlisted large coloured flaw at upper-right, very lightly mounted, Cat $1250.
