Description: 1888-89 Centennial of New South Wales Watermark 'NSW' 2d blue SG 260 upper-left corner block of 12 (6x2) with the Watermark Inverted and 'POSTAGE - TWO PENCE' Imprint at the top, the first and seventh units Imperforate at Left and both additionally with No Watermark, the first unit with some split/reinforced perfs otherwise virtually full o.g. with most units being unmounted, Cat 1320++. An unusually large multiple of this underrated stamp and an exceptional specialist piece. [Gibbons state that the shade is 'Prussian' blue; this is inaccurate. Gibbons also don't mention the No Watermark error, caused by the watermark being spaced for the significantly larger revenue stamps]
