Category: PAPUA

Description: STAMP DUTY:'STAMP DUTY' on 10/- green & lilac Barefoot #13, excellent centring, minor blemishes, oval 'CANCELLED/ COMPANIES REGISTRATION/OFFICE PAPUA' h/s, grossly undercatalogued at 50. Rare: the first example we have seen. [Absent from Tim Rybak's and Peter Troy's collections]

We have been advised that this & the next lot were issued during the post-WWII Australian Period. However, the cancellation reads 'PAPUA' at the base, which suggests pre-War usage. John Barefoot gives the issue date for the 10/- as 1949 but for the 1 as "c.1939 (?)".

Listed in: AUSTRALIA , Revenues , overprinted stamps , PAPUA NEW GUINEA Issued Stamps , PAPUA 1901-1942 The BNG & Papua Stamps Period

Estimate: AUD$ 500.00T
