c.1880 Waterlow essay for a 'QUEENSLAND/TWO PENCE' issue imperforate plate proofs in greenish black, slate-violet or carmine-lake on unwatermarked paper, all closely trimmed but with complete outer framelines. Rare. [The Robson Lowe Encyclopaedia states "Little is known about these essays". Given the amateurishness of the ugly First Sidefaces, we expect the design was prepared in an unsuccessful bid to encourage Queensland to lift its game]

1895-96 Void Background Perf 12,13 d green with Double Impression SG 208a vertical strip of 4, light indistinct cancellations, Cat 8000+. Almost certainly the largest recorded used multiple. With a normal stamp for comparison. [The first print is quite faint & was obviously considered unsatisfactory. The strong second impression is 2mm to the left and slightly lower]

Ken Scudder at page 179 states "Clear double prints exist...probably all...from the same sheet of stamps." Until the 2010 Edition, this error was unpriced by Gibbons. From 2011, it was priced at 2000 unused or used, and has not budged since.
