Description: 1937-49 Definitives Perf 15x14 1/- Lyrebird block of 20 (10x2) with two Authority Imprints & lines in the gutter, also with part Plate Number '7' at base, the upper-right unit mounted otherwise unmounted. An important new discovery. [The ACSC records only three plate blocks of this stamp - '3' at top, '4' at top and '-6-' at base but states at page 4/107 that " were manufactured, of which six were used for printing". This could be from Plate 3 - in which case it would be the first plate block recorded from the base of the sheet - but the unique Plate 3 block BW #209z has a '3' with rounded top. It is almost inconceivable that the engraver would have placed a straight-top '3' at the base. In addition, the almost 90 degree angle of the downstroke adds to our confidence that this is the first record of stamps from Plate 7]
