OFFICIALS: 1905-12 Crown/A Perf 12½ £1 salmon-pink perf 'OS' BW #V127Ab (SG 431), large-part o.g., undercatalogued at $600 (£300 without perfin). Most examples of this and the next two lots are CTO from presentation/collector sets. Mint - and commercially used - examples are much scarcer, which is not reflected in the ACSC prices (2004). Gibbons have not yet listed and priced 'OS' perfins on State issues which, in our opinion, is an unfortunate shortcoming of that reference work.

a-

1850 (Nov 12) cover to Sydney endorsed "Per Shamrock" but crossed-out & amended in the same hand to "Per Overland Mail" with very rare franking of Ham 1d dull red SG 8a horizontal abnormal pair [5-28, the right-hand unit being substituted for 6] with almost full margins (the left-hand unit with White Flaw Obliterating the Upper-Right Corner), Butterfly '1' cancels of Melbourne (b/s) & Sydney arrival b/s of NO*19/1850, minor blemishes. Ex JRW Purves, Rodney Perry & Ken Barelli. Rodney Perry Certificate (2006, unsigned). [Abnormal pairs are very scarce, and usage on cover is quite remarkable]

1851 entire letter to Geelong with a very fine example of Ham's Second State (More Colour above 'VICTORIA') 1d pale red-brown SG 5 tied - unusual for Half-Length covers - by very fine Butterfly '1' of Melbourne, 'MELBOURNE/ MY*7/1851/PORT PHILLIP' & Geelong arrival b/s of the same day. A delightful Half-Lengths cover, & certainly one of the finest we have ever handled. Ex Guy Linfield and Gary Diffen: sold 14/11/2007 for £4465. [The inland rate was 2d, & the town rate was 1d, so this item should have been taxed or returned for additional postage. According to the Gary Diffen sale catalogue "Eight covers are recorded in this shade and this is probably the finest"]

1857 double-rate mercantile cover to London "Per Simla & Overland" with Emblems 4d brown-vermilion SG 42a x2 (one an apparently enormous upper-left corner stamp, the other with 3 good to large margins) plus No Watermark 2d grey-lilac SG 45a x2 (both with margins at places) all overlapped & tied by BN '2' of Geelong (b/s of MY*27/1857), superb London arrival cds of 3AU3/1857 in red on the face. A very pretty cover. Carried "Simla", departed Melbourne 31/5/1857, arrived Suez 12/7/1857; then per "Scamander", departed Alexandria 14/7/1857, arrived Southampton 1/8/1857. Ex Rodney Perry & Ken Barelli. [The writer speaks of a decline in demand for gin but "...we have no doubt we shall soon see an improvement"]

a-

1857 small local cover with Emblems Imperf 1d pair (margins good to large) tied by BN '3' of 'CASTLEMAINE' (oval b/s), two very fine strikes of the unframed-oval 'ADVERTISED/AND/UNCLAIMED' h/s. Delightful. [Many itinerant goldminers had their mail addressed to the closest post office. As there was no delivery and notification system, acceptance of mail required the personal attendance of the addressee. Often, unsuccessful miners moved to "greener pastures" without advising the post office of their whereabouts (often unknown in advance). Ken Barelli's similar cover sold at the Prestige auction of 2/5/2014 for $1265]

1857 internal cover with Emblems 4d dull rose SG 44 marginal horizontal corner (?) pair from the right of the sheet (margins good to huge except at upper-left where there is a small fault), superb "socked on the nose" BN '1' of Melbourne (b/s of AU18/1857), very fine 'GEELONG/[crown]/*AU19/1857/VICTORIA' arrival b/s (the star incorrectly & unusually positioned to the left of the month slug), vertical & horizontal folds well clear of the stamps. Ex Rodney Perry & Ken Barelli.

1858 internal cover with Emblems 4d rose-pink SG 65 irregularly separated single just tied to outer by BN '57', largely fine oval 'KYNETON/[crown]/1*MA/1858/VICTORIA' (1st March, not May) & Melbourne arrival b/s. This is a significant cover because it proves that No Watermark imperf stamps were issued prior to the cancellation for fraud & theft of Calvert's contract, in April 1858. Ex CL Pack, BD Forster, Rodney Perry & Ken Barelli.
