1850-51 Sydney Views Plate II (Horizontally Lined Background) Worn Impressions 2d dull blue vertical pair with Retouched Lower Unit SG 25/28, margins large to enormous - at top and base - with outer framelines except at right, bars cancels of Sydney, Cat 360++. A rare se-tenant pair of impressive proportions.

Technically, all 2d Sydney Views are marginal examples. However, even singles with one sheet margin are rarely seen & a "complete vertical column" such as this is a great rarity. [Larger than the similar Prussian blue pair that sold at our auction of 20/4/2015 for $1404]
