Rare. [The ACSC states "These views should be equally scarce in any of the printed colours". This is incorrect: cards printed in black, red or blue are from the second printing & are very scarce.

SURFACED IVORY STOCK ACSC #LC7: 'BOTANIC GARDENS/BRISBANE Q' in sepia-brown, tiny & insignificant tone flecks, unused, Cat $1750. Rare: the ACSC states only four examples, of only 3 views, all unused, have been recorded. [This was a very small printing on the same stock residue as #LC4 & again in sepia only. It was the first issue with the reset admonition, which was a slightly larger font than the "...any" cards, introduced because of complaints the original font was too small. Ironically, the 3 lines of the original setting were fractionally higher than the new setting!]
