Description: 1897-1908 Figures in Four Corners 9d colour-trial pair in coral-pink on gummed Crown/Q paper defaced with a ruled line in black ink BW #Q43(E)1Be, Cat $5000+. Unissued value in this series. Ex The Chapman Collection (1920s) and Colonel Harrie Evans. [Prepared in early-1903 to comply with the new basic telegram rate of 9d, but rejected in favour of the "Uniform" 9d design proposed by Postmaster-General Drake that was adopted by only NSW & Queensland. This is therefore a very significant item for the CofA collector. Similar pairs in yellow-orange & slate-purple - one pulled perf - sold for $2875 & $3335 in our auctions of 12/5/2007 & 1/9/2007 respectively]
