ATTORNEY-GENERAL: Die 2 (Coat of Arms 13mm high) printed in blue on 1900 lettersheet with Master-in-Lunacy's Office imprint in the same colour (S&W #L20), folded to 94x61mm with very late usage of "killer" '1' of Melbourne & 'CAULFIELD' arrival b/s, minor faults. Rated RRR+, which must be an error because this is not just the only recorded example of this item but the only example of Die 2 printed in blue. Illustrated at Colour Plate A.
CHIEF SECRETARY: Die 9 (rosettes at the sides) handstamped in rosine on 1893 envelope with 'Hospitals for the Insane/...' imprint (S&W #E1180; the only recorded example), light vertical fold; and Die 5 on 1902 envelope with 'LUNATIC ASYLUM/Beechworth' imprint at L/L (#E1230; wrongly noted as Die 3).
