POSTAL CARDS - OFFICIAL: 1911 Fullface 1d with 'OS/NSW' perfin #P23ea for Sydney Harbour Trust, local usage in 1913, minor aging, Cat $1000. Rare. A new discovery; only the third example - all used - recorded. [The ACSC states "The 'OS/NSW' puncture is believed to derive from a small quantity of these cards being included with 1d Kangaroo cards sent for puncturing. Only two used examples [and none unused] are recorded". It should also be noted that because BW #P1 was not released in NSW, this is the earliest possible 'OS/NSW' perfin on an Australian Postal Card. John Sinfield's example - minor corner bend - sold at the Prestige auction of 8/11/2013 for $1840]
