Stockbook labelled "Varieties" with an array of singles & blocks with retouches & "flyspeck" varieties, noted Navigators 40c block of 6, 50c x9, $1 x40+, $2 x20 & $4 x20, Cook Anpex M/S x2, QEII 7c group, Pioneers & Aboriginal Art, etc, unmounted.(Qty 100s)
1966-71 QEII Definitives 2c olive lower-right corner block of 6 (3x2) with four units affected to varying degrees by a Strong Offset, unmounted. [In our opinion, partial offsets of this nature are far more interesting - and convincing - than most full offsets that, in many cases, could be simply bleeding of the ink through the paper]
1966-71 QEII Definitives 5c blue lower-right corner block of 10 (2x5) with all units affected to varying degrees by two Misplaced Strikes of the Perforating Comb resulting in all right-hand units with major Double Perf varieties, unmounted. Dramatic!
1966-71 QEII Definitives 6c orange block of 4 with major Double Perfs, unmounted. Very scarce in this value.
1966-71 QEII Definitives 6c orange block of 20 (10x2) being two complete rows from a Mis-Guillotined Pane resulting in two blank "stamps" at left and the two right-hand units being Imperforate at Right, unmounted. A remarkable error. [With a normal block for comparison]
1966-71 QEII Definitives 7c bright reddish purple block of 8 (2x4) from the base of the sheet, all units with major Double Perfs, unmounted. Very scarce in this value.
