TEN SHILLINGS: V/Crown 10/- three distinctive shades of the so-called "deep mauve" BW #W65A (SG 127) comprising dull violet, deep violet & bright violet, and the very scarce 10/- "bright purple" or red-violet BW #W65B (SG 127a), Cat $1650+ (1230+). In our opinion, the listed shades are wrongly labelled, and - despite the ACSC stating there were only two printings - all four shades could be separately listed.
