UNSURFACED THIN CHALKY STOCK ACSC #LC3: 'MOSMAN'S BAY/SYDNEY NSW' in claret, to Germany with rare uprating with Western Australia d Swan Imperforate at Base ACSC #W4b (Cat $2000+ in 2004) & 1d tied by light 'BALBARRUP/NO9/11/WESTERN AUSTRALIA'. A delightful & rare usage. RPSofV Certificate (1991). [The ACSC states that five examples of the error stamp are recorded, of which three are institutionalised, and "one...is used on a 1913 postcard", surely an error for this 1911 Letter Card. Cecil Walkley's used stamp - roughly separated at the base - sold at the Prestige auction of 14.4.2005 for $4600]

A-

'CARTING-FAR NORTH' (camel train) in purple LC36c, Melbourne 'HELP REPATRIATION/BUY WAR SAVINGS/CERTIFICATES' slogan cancel of 21JE/1920, small opening fault below the view, Cat $5000. Unique: an exceptional error. RPSofV Certificate (1988). [The error presumably occurred because Harrison was printing the new 1d cards at the same time he was surcharging the 1d cards. The ACSC states "The only recorded example is used at Melbourne 21.6.1920"]

This is such an outstanding and singular error that, although doubtless produced inadvertently, we believe it should have a full catalogue number. At present it is 'lost' in the entries for the 1d on 1d cards. This is akin to the South Australian Crown/SA 'TENPENCE' on 9d
