1885 PENNY ON THREEPENCE: '1d.' with Curved Upper Serif on 3d pale brown as SG 91 but with the Overprint Double in Pale Yellow & in Pale Green, no gum. Rare. [John Gartner had a block of 4, with a RPSofL Certificate stating "presumably of proof status": its current whereabouts is unknown. Ric Slade-Slade had two singles: as his sale was only months after Gartner, it is unlikely that these were from the Gartner block. A single was sold at a Sydney auction in 2008 for $3450. That & this example may well be the Slade-Slade stamps. Neither the Gartner nor Slade-Slade stamps were illustrated]
