"MINIATURE SHEETS": Complete sheet of 15 sheetlets (5x3), some minor perf separation, generally very well centred, overall evenly aged gum but unmounted, Cat $4125.
"MINIATURE SHEETS": Three sheetlets with the Exhibition cds in red of 29OC28 (four strikes; First Day of Issue), 31OC28 (thinned in the margin at the base) or 1NO28 (aged/suntanned gum but unmounted; Closing Day of the Exhibition), Cat $900.
"MINIATURE SHEETS": Lower-half of a sheetlet tied to cover with Exhibition imprint on the flap by a characteristically light but clear strike of the Exhibition cds of 29OC28 in green (First Day of Issue) BW #133MSwa. The only example we have seen of the very scarce green cds on cover.
"MINIATURE SHEETS": Sheetlet in an unusually bright shade of blue with very white gum, apparently produced by photolithography. A very creditable forgery. [This item originated with a Canadian dealer who sent it to Gary Watson for auction in the 1980s. On arrival, it was identified as a forgery. Despite being the subject of an article in the local philatelic press, no other examples are known to have been recorded]
