It is punctured 'WA' and shows the Mixed Perfs at the base"]

[The ACSC states that "Watermark upright exists as an abnormal position but can only be differentiated with certainty from #W16B (dull yellow) if dated before May 1904"]
TWO PENCE: V/Crown Perf 11 2d dull yellow with the Watermark Upright BW #W18B (SG 130a), excellent centring, Maddington (?) cds of FEB1905, Cat $600 (£475).

A spectacular variety that is not recorded for this issue in the ACSC. Acquired for $862 at our auction of 10/3/2007. [Almost certainly a contiguous piece to Dr Walkley's similar block - no side margin - that sold for $1150 (2005)]
TWO PENCE: Crown/A Mixed Perfs 2d orange-yellow Perf 11x12.4x12.2x12.4 BW #W25 (SG 162), Albany cds, Cat $750 (£550). Rare. [The ACSC states "About one dozen used examples are recorded [including four in institutions]. All show Perf 11 either at top or bottom"]

[The ACSC states "A small number of sheets were printed on paper with the watermark upright". The ERD for this stamp is 30/11/1912, right at the end of the "States Period"]
FOUR PENCE: V/Crown 4d brown with the Watermark Upright BW #W32aa (SG 119a), the gum a little disturbed, Cat $750 (£550. Very scarce. [The ACSC states "Several examples with watermark upright are recorded", including five in institutions. All recorded examples are mint, but Gibbons also price this stamp used]
FOUR PENCE: V/Crown Perf 11 4d chestnut BW #W34 (SG 131), GPO cds of JY13/06, Cat $750 (£425). [The ACSC states "This is a rare stamp with only a handful of examples so far recorded." Superior to Dr Cecil Walkley's example, that sold for $483]
FOUR PENCE: Crown/A Perf 11 4d chestnut BW #W37B (SG 154a), a little soiled, unused. Previously unrecorded unused & unpriced thus in the catalogues. [The ACSC states "Less than ten examples are recorded", all used, including two in a museum]
FOUR PENCE: Crown/A Perf 11 4d chestnut BW #W37B (SG 154a), 'MARBLE BAR/MY3/09' cds, Cat $750 (£400). RPSofV Certificate (2009) inaccurately states "4d yellow-brown SG 154": this shade is listed & priced by Gibbons. However, the ACSC states "The only recorded example [of the 4d brown] without 'OS' puncture is in the WA Museum".
FOUR PENCE: Crown/A Perf 11 4d as BW #W37B (SG 154a) but in a distinctive orange-brown shade, 'LAWLERS/9FE1909' cds, Cat $750+ (£400+). Unlisted shade.

Rare: only a few have been recorded. [Although the 6d was proofed in 1896 and printed in 1897, the entire printing was held in reserve until October 1906, making this a Commonwealth-period issue. Dr Cecil Walkley's superb example sold for $2530]
