'CARTING-FAR NORTH' (camel train) in purple LC36c, Melbourne 'HELP REPATRIATION/BUY WAR SAVINGS/CERTIFICATES' slogan cancel of 21JE/1920, small opening fault below the view, Cat $5000. Unique: an exceptional error. RPSofV Certificate (1988). [The error presumably occurred because Harrison was printing the new 1½d cards at the same time he was surcharging the 1d cards. The ACSC states "The only recorded example is used at Melbourne 21.6.1920"]
This is such an outstanding and singular error that, although doubtless produced inadvertently, we believe it should have a full catalogue number. At present it is 'lost' in the entries for the 1½d on 1d cards. This is akin to the South Australian Crown/SA 'TENPENCE' on 9d
