2d orange with the Watermark Inverted ACSC #95a (SG 62w), one nibbled perf at the top, and a normal stamp, both with very fine 'BURRACOPPIN/5APR1922/WESTERN AUSTRALIA' cds, Cat $8000 (£5500). A very attractive example. [The ACSC states that about 20 examples, all used, are recorded. Stuart Hardy's significantly off-centre example sold at auction in 2013 for $4427]
The normal stamp being dated the same day at the same small PO raises the intriguing question "Could the error be the result of a wmk bit that was inverted on the dandy roll, rather than the sheet being inverted prior to printing!?"
2d orange with Cracked Electro (Vertical Crack through Right of Stamp) ACSC #95(1)L, Melbourne cds clear of the affected area, Cat $600. [This is an unlisted early state that shows the crack extending from the base of the stamp to the value tablet, and from the Emu's Head to the base of the Wattles. The damage through the Wattles is not evident]
