1928 International Philatelic Exhibition 3d Kookaburra M/S from upper-right of the sheet with two strikes of the Exhibition cds in green BW #133MSwa, CTO with full o.g. very lightly mounted in the upper margin only, Cat $500. By far the finest example we have seen of the cds in green: all other examples are struck centrally only and are thus difficult to read. [For many years the catalogue referred to cancels in red or "green", with no reference to blue cancels. Consequently, the common blue impressions were routinely, and erroneously, called "green". The 1994 edition of the ACSC was the first to list all three colours. Examples of the genuine green cancels are truly rare with only a handful having been recorded. The example in our auction of 18/11/2006 sold for $690]
