PRIVATE ESSAYS: 1908 Goodman Syndicate printer's proofs of essays for a proposed Reply Letter Card with the two halves joined within at left, all printed in rosine on pale blue stock with 'GOODMAN'S PATENT' at L/L, one with typed 'Specimen Design' on the reverse, the others with 'POSTMASTER GENERAL'S DEPT/COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA' cachet in violet on the face, one of these with the halves separated & a small "window" cut to allow the word 'REPLY' on the inner-half to show, some minor internal reinforcing & a few minor blemishes. A fascinating trio.

The design was patented in 1905. In 1908 it was offered to the Post Office for 3750. It was rejected on the basis of the cost. In 1910 Portugal issued a reply letter card with the halves joined within at the top. That design was plagiarised for the 1911 1d+1d issue. (Qty 3)
