1907-10 Small 'PAPUA' Watermark Upright Perf 11 2½d with the Watermark Upright Reversed SG 51(var) [Pos 3], unused (no gum). [Reversed watermark varieties in this issue have been noted on the 2d 2½d 4d & 6d values. Of SG 51a(var), one used & 21 mint examples have been recorded. Despite reversed watermarks being catalogued in both the Monocolour & Bicolour series, Gibbons have not yet listed these varieties in the Lithographs. We expect them to do so, which will inevitably send demand through the roof]
1930 Aeroplane Overprints Harrison Printings 1/- sepia & olive as SG 117 but with the Overprint in Deep Carmine, light tropicalisation as usual for this stamp. Unlisted in Gibbons. With an example of SG 120 for comparison of the overprint. [This is generally considered to have been a trial printing of 10 sheets of 40 but used examples are known]
1937 Coronation of KGVI 1d to 5d die proofs in the issued colours on thin highly surfaced paper (55x66mm or slightly larger) each with various endorsements dated between 17th & 22nd Feb 1937, the 3d & 5d also with "Passed" at the base, 'sticky tape' stains at the top & base that fortunately don't impact on the designs. Ex EC Harris Archive: sold at the Prestige auction of 12.10.2012 for $8912. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2012) states "Great rarity being the only full set recorded".
