1989 Non-Olympic Sports Cycling as the issued 41c - included for comparison - but denominated 37c BW #1379E(1) horizontal "pair", unmounted, Cat $12,000 (2002). A world-class rarity in the fields of self-adhesive stamps, and "Cycling". [The ACSC classifies this stamp as an "essay". We consider this to be a mistake. The initial printing was of the 37c stamps. The rate was increased to 41c & a second print run at 41c was ordered. In our opinion, this is an unissued stamp, not an essay]

The ACSC states that only a single and a pair - the stamps offered here - are recorded in private hands, the balance of the roll of 100 being in the Australia Post Archives.
