Stockbook with a sorted array of Barred Numerals & Rays on a wide variety of stamps, some multiples & many on piece, lots of high numbers. Queensland postmarks were generally poorly manufactured and consequently fine strikes are the exception rather than the rule. This lot includes a high proportion that are well above average with numerous very fine to superb strikes. Completely unchecked by us: we want you to have all the fun! (Qty 400+)
1886 (March 9) unstamped cover to England "Via Sanfrancisco" from 'NORMANTON' with very fine strike of the very rare 'INSUFFICIENTLY PREPAID/FOR ROUTE INDICATED' h/s & fine boxed 'DEFICIENT POSTAGE ("6d")/FINE ("6d - 1/-")' h/s - of a type not recorded by Campbell - both applied at Brisbane (b/s), sent via the long sea route & with British 'I.B./S/1/-' tax h/s , superb 'PRESTON' arrival b/s, repaired flap tear. An exceptional cover. [Of the first marking, Campbell at page 118 states "...only one example is known,...on an 1883 cover...". We are confident this cover has not previously been reported as we discovered it in a private vendor's unsorted material]
