1907-10 Small 'PAPUA'Watermark Upright Perf 11 2d with the Watermark Upright Reversed SG 51(var) [Pos 3], unused (no gum). [Reversed watermark varieties in this issue have been noted on the 2d 2d 4d & 6d values. Of SG 51(var), 21 mint & 1 used examples have been recorded. Despite reversed watermarks being catalogued in both the Monocolour & Bicolour series, Gibbons have not yet listed these varieties in the Lithographs. We expect them to do so, which will inevitably send demand through the roof]

STAMP DUTY:'STAMP DUTY' on 10/- green & lilac Barefoot #13, excellent centring, minor blemishes, oval 'CANCELLED/ COMPANIES REGISTRATION/OFFICE PAPUA' h/s, grossly undercatalogued at 50. Rare: the first example we have seen. [Absent from Tim Rybak's and Peter Troy's collections]

We have been advised that this & the next lot were issued during the post-WWII Australian Period. However, the cancellation reads 'PAPUA' at the base, which suggests pre-War usage. John Barefoot gives the issue date for the 10/- as 1949 but for the 1 as "c.1939 (?)".
