1985 Ceremonial Structures Smaller Format & without 't' after the Value '10' (instead of 15t) to '60', unmounted. Unissued: see note in Gibbons after SG 499. With a normal set for comparison. [This is a weird situation. The unissued stamps were printed by Leigh Marden in Melbourne while the issued stamps were printed by the Spanish firm Heraclio Fournier]

The major variety is listed by Gibbons but unprinced. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2002) states "The Missing 5t occurred only in part of the printing". [Absent from John McNabb's exceptional collection]
1994 Emergency Surcharges 50t on 35t Headdress with the Overprint Inverted SG 736a, unmounted, Cat £600. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2002) states "Only one sheet of 50 believed printed".
POSTAL HISTORY: 1959 commercial airmail cover to Germany with scarce franking of 3½d black Headdress x2 & 7d Plymill x3 tied by 'RABAUL' cds, minor blemishes. The rate was 2/3d so the cover was overpaid 1d.
PAPUA NEW GUINEA - Postage Dues
1960 (March) 6d on 7½d SG D1, characteristic faint overall gum toning, Cat £850. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2000).
1960 (March) 6d on 7½d SG D1 with 'FORGED' & 'K CEREMUGA' handstamps on the reverse, unmounted. One of the better forgeries.
1960 (March) 6d on 7½d SG D1, very well centred with none of the characteristic gum toning usually encountered, Cat £850. RPSV Certificate (2008).
1960 (March) 6d on 7½d SG D1 block of 18 (6x3) from the top of the sheet with margins on three sides, toning, Cat £15,300. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2001) states "Only around 800 believed printed. A very rare block, being the largest multiple recorded". [A note with this striking item, states it originated with the family of the then postmaster at Lae]
1960 (March) set of 5 values - the 6d on 7½d being SG D1 - tied to an unaddressed OHMS cover by very fine 'KEREMA/25JU60/PAPUA-NEW GUINEA' cds, Cat £460 (as loose stamps). Superb! Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2002).
1960 (March) 6d on 7½d with the Overprint Double SG D4a, some very minor toning as is usually found on this stamp, unmounted, Cat £1200. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2002) states "Only two sheets of 36 believed printed", but in our experience this is much scarcer than SG D3a. [John McNabb's superb example sold for $1380 at the Prestige auction of 12/10/2012]
