1970-75 Floral Coils 6c Sturt's Desert Rose vertical strip of 6, units three & four with the Magenta Printing (Flower Petals) Omitted BW #534cc (Pierron #936MCc), unmounted, Cat $12,000+ (4000+) for used; unpriced mint. RPSofV Certificate (2011). The only recorded mint examples.

[The ACSC states "One example with magenta printing omitted, used on piece cancelled at Sydney, has been recorded." That stamp is Ex John Sinfield: sold for $5750 at our auction of 26/1/2004. The entry continues "This error was previously listed and priced mint, but no evidence has been found for the existence of mint examples." This item proves the existence of mint stamps, and demands their reinstatement in the next edition.
