REINTRODUCTION OF GREENISH GREY STOCK WITH NO COMMA AFTER 'Australia ' ACSC #LC10 (2): 'CAIRNS RAILWAY/QUEENSLAND' in brown, 'CENTRAL RLY STN/SYDNEY' (an inscriptional error for 'BRISBANE'; full message but not addressed) in greenish black, 'LAKE ST CLAIR/TASMANIA' in black, 'LORNE/VICTORIA' in magenta, 'MT LOFTY RANGES/SOUTH AUSTRALIA' in dull green, 'NATIONAL PARK/NS WALES' - vertical with boat - in greenish blue with Griffith Bros address & advice, 'THE GORGE/LAUNCESTON TAS' in bright blue, 'THE TWO BROTHERS/QUEENSLAND' in grey-black, & 'VICTOR HARBOUR/SOUTH AUSTRALIA' (another of Cooke's errors: oddly, the spelling has always been the American-style 'HARBOR') in brown (used at Brinkworth SA but with the margins intact), a few minor blemishes, Cat $1375.

Chronologically, the September 1912 printing was the last of the Fullface issues. A completely new set of electros was created: the stamps all show minor damage at the U/L corner, in effect a new die state, and in the text the comma after 'Australia ' was removed. And 11 of the 12 views were completely new. So this group need their own catalogue number. For all these reasons, we suggest that LC11 & 12 should be renumbered LC10 & 11, and the September 1912 printings should become LC12. (Qty 6)

PRIVATE ESSAYS: 1908 Goodman Syndicate printer's proofs of essays for a proposed Reply Letter Card with the two halves joined within at left, all printed in rosine on pale blue stock with 'GOODMAN'S PATENT' at L/L, one with typed 'Specimen Design' on the reverse, the others with 'POSTMASTER GENERAL'S DEPT/COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA' cachet in violet on the face, one of these with the halves separated & a small "window" cut to allow the word 'REPLY' on the inner-half to show, some minor internal reinforcing & a few minor blemishes. A fascinating trio.

The design was patented in 1905. In 1908 it was offered to the Post Office for 3750. It was rejected on the basis of the cost. In 1910 Portugal issued a reply letter card with the halves joined within at the top. That design was plagiarised for the 1911 1d+1d issue. (Qty 3)
