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]
