POSTMARKS: Folder with 1920s array all on commercial pieces with NWPI or Territory frankings, including 'POST OFFICE/AITAPE', 'DISTRICT OFFICE/AITAPE', 'GASMATTA/NEW GUINEA', huge 'POST OFFICE/KAVIENG', 'DISTRICT OFFICE/MOROBE' (rated G; only the second example recorded), 'NAMATANAi/NEW GUINEA', 'POST OFFICE/SALAMOA', TALASEA', etc, some duplication, also a light strike of the previously unrecorded double-circle 'POST OFFICE/KOKOPO' in red. A fascinating new find, offered untrimmed as per the vendor's instructions. [With the four parts of Phillip Blakeney's 'PNG Calling' article re his discovery of this material at a garage sale, and his conclusion that it all originated from the office of the 'Rabaul Times' newspaper. The only item removed by us is the next lot] (Qty 66 items)

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 51a(var), one used & 21 mint 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]
