SURFACED IVORY STOCK ACSC #LC7: 'BOTANIC GARDENS/BRISBANE Q' in sepia-brown, tiny & insignificant tone flecks, unused, Cat $1750. Rare: the ACSC states only four examples, of only 3 views, all unused, have been recorded. [This was a very small printing on the same stock residue as #LC4 & again in sepia only. It was the first issue with the reset admonition, which was a slightly larger font than the "...any" cards, introduced because of complaints the original font was too small. Ironically, the 3 lines of the original setting were fractionally higher than the new setting!]

[A sarcastic letter to the 'Argus' of 13.7.1911 stated "...Evidently the [PMG's] department has acted hastily but lazily on the knowledge that the position of the [SA] boundary was recently in dispute".

UNSURFACED GREYISH/GREENISH STOCK WITH COMMA AFTER 'Australia,' ACSC #LC8: 'SYDNEY HARBOUR/NSW' (Captain Cook's Statue in the middle-distance) Bicolour with the stamp & text in reddish violet & the view in brownish grey, unused, Cat $200++. [The view is off-centre as a result of the Perfs being Misplaced. This was the first issue in which bicoloured cards appeared, caused by adding new colour inks to the presses before the previous colour inks were exhausted]

UNSURFACED GREYISH/GREENISH STOCK WITH COMMA AFTER 'Australia,' ACSC #LC8: 'VIADUCT/NEAR ADELAIDE SA' (the Melbourne-Adelaide Express) in blue, sealed & blemishes on the address side, unused, Cat $250; also JBS PPC with the photo adopted for the letter card, unused; and South Australia 1904 1d essay 'Viaduct near Adelaide' proof in black-purple utilising the same photo, insignificant surface abrasion. The essay is unique! Ex Martin Walker & Nelson Eustis: acquired at a Melbourne auction in 2003 for $2070]

JB Cooke, while SA Government Printer, submitted three similar essays as suggestions for a uniform CofA issue of Postal Cards. Although rejected, they were later used by Cooke for the 1908 South Australian issue &/or for this scenic Letter Card. The similar 'WOOL CARTING' proof card sold at the Prestige auction of 24.1.2004 for $3920. (Qty 3)

UNSURFACED GREYISH/GREENISH STOCK WITH COMMA AFTER 'Australia,' ACSC #LC8: 'ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS/PERTH WA' in sepia, underpaid to Germany with South Australian d only tied by 'CALLINGTON' (SA) cds, superb 'T/20CTS'-in-circle h/s of Adelaide but no evidence that the postage due was collected. [1d was the foreign postcard rate. However letter cards had to be paid at the letter rate of 2d]

SURFACED GREYISH STOCK WITH COMMA AFTER 'Australia,' ACSC #LC9: 'MONTEZUMA FALLS, HOBART' in dull blue, the stamp with a far-more advanced state of the damage illustrated in the ACSC, unused, Cat $1000. Rare: only several examples, all of this view and all in blue, have been recorded. [NB: Erroneously listed in the ACSC as 'white surfaced' stock. Our vendor noted it as 'off-white'. It is certainly without the greenish tinge of #LC8/10. Most accurately, it is a 'pale grey, semi-surfaced' stock]

The inscription is an error: Montezuma Falls are near Rosebery on Tasmania's west coast & some 300km NW of Hobart. To say that Cooke was careless with his captions is a classic understatement.
