os PUNCTURED 'OS': 6d dull grey-blue Plate 2 (Jubilee Lines) TS Harrison Two-Line Imprint block of 4 BW #19Cba(2)zh, very lightly mounted at the top of the gutter only, unmounted, Cat $32,500++ (mounted). Unique! Ex Stuart Hardy, where the upper units were noted as being mounted, which is at odds with our assessment.
The ACSC states "The Harrison imprint on the 6d blue is perhaps the rarest imprint outside the bicoloured high values. At present  only three blocks of 4 can be confirmed". As stated in the Stuart Hardy catalogue, this is the fourth recorded imprint block but the only imprint multiple with 'OS' punctures . As such, it is of extreme rarity. See also Lot 276919 .
PUNCTURED 'OS': 2/- brownish grey BW #37I marginal example from the base of the sheet, well centred, a trifle aged, very lightly mounted, Cat $2000. RPSofV Certificate (2014). [This is a very rare shade that exists only punctured 'OS'. In our opinion, it is undervalued in the ACSC]
PUNCTURED 'OS': 2/- maroon Double Print BW #38c affecting the first two units in a horizontal strip of 3 (on unit 1 affecting the Map & Value Tablet, etc, and on unit 2 affecting the left-hand frameline & with dramatic doubling of '2/-', etc), characteristic centring for this variety, 'CROXTON/30MR31/VIC' cds, Cat $7000+. [The ACSC states "A number of used examples, all punctured 'OS', are known. These include a block of 6 (now divided) cancelled Croxton 30MR31". Arthur Gray's pair - stated to be from that block of 6 - sold for $US2100. The doubling on this multiple is far more obvious]
PUNCTURED 'OS': 10/- grey & pale "aniline" pink BW #48E corner block of 4 from the lower-right of the sheet, light even gum-toning that doesn't affect the very fine fresh facial appearance, Cat $15,000+.
