SURFACED PALE GREEN STOCK ACSC #LC1: 'BOTANIC GARDENS/ADELAIDE SA' in bright blue, to Launceston with message headed "Westbury/June 8th" & endorsed "1d to pay late fee", Postage Due 1d tied by indelible pencil. 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. Our vendor stated that fewer than ten cards printed in 'colour' are recorded]
SEMI-SURFACED PALE GREEN STOCK ACSC #LC2: 'BOTANIC GARDENS/ADELAIDE SA' in dull blue-green, used Adelaide to Kooringa but uncancelled, faults, Cat $1000. Rare: the ACSC states that only five examples of #LC2 have been recorded, across four views.
PALE GREEN STOCK ACSC #LC5: 'BOTANIC GARDENS/ADELAIDE SA' in blue, intact but the viewside a bit grubby, unused, Cat $1000.

[The view is off-centre as a result of the Perfs being Misplaced. This was the first issue in which bicoloured cards appeared, caused by adding new colour inks to the presses before the previous colour inks were exhausted]
