47 10/- grey & pink BW 47A, well centred, Cat $2000.
51 £1 brown & blue BW #51A, tiny natural paper inclusions that don't affect the very fine facial appearance, Cat $4000.
51B £1 red-brown & blue BW #51B, well centred, lightly mounted, Cat $4000.
55 £2 black & rose-carmine BW 55A (deep shade) with unlisted "Pesky Fly" variety (Red Spot Inland from Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, between the Kangaroo's Ears!) [R31], well centred, Cat $10,000+. A very fine example of this key High Value, that is abent from most collections. Ex Stuart Hardy.
55 £2 black & crimson marginal example from the right of the left-hand pane with White Flaw in the Gulf of Carpentaria (Very Early State) BW #55B(D)g [L18], well centred, lightly mounted, Cat $10,000. A very attractive example of this iconic stamp. [The variety is priced at $17,500 but it is such an early state that we prefer to work from the price for the basic stamp]
55 £2 black & rose-carmine with Broken Coastline in Great Australian Bight BW #55(D)h, well centred, a couple of slightly nibbled perfs, 'SYDNEY/12MY14/-22-' cds, Cat $5000. A very much underrated stamp postally used, being much scarcer than either mint or CTO examples . Ex Stuart Hardy.
55 £2 black & rose-carmine CTO with Melbourne cds, well centred, virtually full o.g., Cat $5500. Superb! [The ACSC now lists all recorded dates of the CTO cancellations. For the Two Pounds, only AP15/13 AP24/13 & DE5/13 are listed. While the date of this example is undetermined, the day is '17']
55 £2 black & rose-carmine CTO with Melbourne cds of AP15/13 BW #55w, a well centred "jumbo" example, Cat $5500. A remarkable & superb stamp! Ex Stuart Hardy.
55 £2 black & rose-carmine with Large White Flaw off NSW Coast BW #55(D)va [R48] CTO - well clear of the variety - with the larger 'MELBOURNE/ 24 /--AP13/-VIC-' cds as BW 55Aw but with unlisted CTO variant, Cat $8000+.
PUNCTURED 'OS/NSW': PUNCTURED 'OS/NSW': 10/- grey & pink, well centred, a couple of slightly short perfs. Ex Guy Hutson: left in a collection of New South Wales officials!
No longer available
PUNCTURED 'OS/NSW': - £2 grey-black & rose-carmine, well centred, trivial blemish at the base. A very rare State Official. Ex Guy Hutson: left in a collection of New South Wales officials! [Much better centred than an example with no gum that sold at a London auction in 2014 for £6900]
