Description: AUSTRALIA: 1966 Definitives 15c Galah vertical strip of 5 from the right of the sheet with Grey Printing (Branches & Highlights) Completely Omitted from the central unit SG 393b (Cat 4000), Partly Omitted from the base of the second unit & Largely Omitted from the fourth unit ACSC #455cb, unmounted, Cat $5000 (2002). Possibly unique! [The ACSC records two variants of this error 1) with Grey Printing also Partly Omitted from the first & fifth units; and 2) as here. However, it is stated that this error was known only from a block of 10 (2x5) that was stupidly reduced to a block of 4 of the 3rd & 4th rows and then to two pairs. The implication is that the strip offered here is the only surviving example of the "full" error. Tom Pierron also states that "just two mint copies, both in vertical pairs with partials, survive"]
