1905 ESSAYS: Amateurish pencil drawing of a 3d design with the Australian Coat of Arms on artpaper (61x80mm), endorsed "34" on the reverse. Not recorded in the ACSC. Ex 'Besancon' (III). [Apart from the vendor's attribution, there is nothing to indicate that this was a submission for a design competititon. Caveat emptor]
1911 STAMP DESIGN COMPETITION: Two moderately skillful renderings of variations on the theme of the Map of Australia & Commonwealth Coat of Arms both photographically reproduced on postcard stock, each with a file-hole at U/R & closed pinholes. Unrecorded in the ACSC. Ex 'Besancon' (III): sold for SFr605. [Each item is endorsed on the reverse "H Grey Norris/.../Kensington Park/S Australia". Henry Grey Norris had senior positions with the railways in South India & retired to Adelaide]
1913 ESSAYS: Two stamp-size photographic essays for 1d Coat of Arms and 1d Allegorical Figure, both endorsed on the reverse "63/E Whitehead & Co". Not recorded in the ACSC. Ex 'Besancon' (III). [The inscription 'GR' on the first of these strongly suggests they were not received for the 1911 Stamp Design Competition which closed 31.5.1911. KEVII died on the 6th of that month]. See also Lot 1243.
** Dumb error alert! KEVII died 6.5.1910. These designs were definitely entered in the 1911 Competition: a client has advised that the Mother & Child design was illustrated in at least one newspaper report of the competition! **
