AUSTRALIA: 1911 Post Office Design Competition Cockatoo/Boomerang/Platypus within Lyrebird Feathers essay by ET Luke, stamp-size undenominated proofs printed in blue, yellow-orange (closed tear at lower-left), violet & green ACSC #E112A-D, and with 'ONE PENNY' Added in rose-carmine #E112F (with 'HO' part-papermaker's watermark), the first on stout paper, the others on thin paper, Cat $7500. Ex Derrick Ray. Separate RPSofL Certificates (2004) each state "genuine, so far as we can say", which is an example of why Australian material should be expertised in Australia. [The ACSC states "All are very rare, with generally only one example recorded in any one colour". Neither the ACSC nor the relevant certificate mention the tear on the yellow-orange proof]

1996 Health (Road Safety) Teddy Bear M/S as SG MS2002 but from the original printing with the Teddy Bear & Baby Facing Forwards and 'SC 439' at upper-left, unmounted, STC €12,000. See Gibbons' footnote. Unlisted by Campbell Paterson. [The design caused an outcry because the baby should have been facing the rear of the car to comply with safety regulations. The stamps were immediately withdrawn & redesigned. However, some were released "in error". According to our sources, the original M/Ss had been inadvertently distributed by the printers, Enschedé in the Netherlands, to their staff after the recall was announced. Examples sold at the Prestige auctions of 9.2.2008 & 30.3.2012 for $2415 & $1840 respectively]
