[We cannot guarantee that the last is definitely the "deep" shade. Certainly it is a deeper shade than normal] [Illustrations for Lots 93 & 94 appear above Lot 92] (Qty 3)
TWO PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 2d pale orange & 2d orange-vermilion both with the Watermark Upright SG 24var & 25a, both with margins close to large, 15-bars '3' or '1' cancels of Perth both in blue. Unpriced by Gibbons, and the first not listed.

TWO PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 2d orange-vermilion SG 25 marginal block of 4 [1-2/11-12] from the upper-left corner of the sheet, margins close to enormous, two minor Pre-Printing Paper Folds across the left-hand units, unused, Cat £440++. Ex Frank Chadwick (Lot 2239, when the left-hand margin was a little larger).
TWO PENCE - ROULETTED: 2d pale orange & 2d orange-vermilion SG 29 & 30, rouletting on three or four sides & margins generally close to good, Cat £450; also an oxidised example with the Watermark Upright (Inverted), which is not listed by Gibbons. (Qty 3)
FOUR PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 4d blue & 4d deep blue SG 26 & 27, both with close to good margins, unused, Cat £550.
FOUR PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 4d deep blue SG 27, margins close to good except at upper-right where slightly cut-into, fine GPO duplex cancel, Cat £1700. A rarity used, with only about 15 genuine examples recorded. [Similarly cancelled examples with full margins sold for $5750 & $4370 at our auctions of 29/11/2008 & 23/9/2011 respectively]
FOUR PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 4d deep blue SG 27, margins close to good except where just touched at upper-left, light 15-bars '18' of Bunbury, Cat £1700. RPSofL Certificate (1921). Ex Dr Cecil Walkley: acquired for $1495. [It is generally considered that most examples are cancelled at Bunbury, with only a few being cancelled at Perth. However, our experience is the reverse]
SIX PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 6d sage-green SG 28, margins close to good except where just touching at upper-right, unused, Cat £2000. [There is evidence of rouletting on all sides but we doubt if this stamp would be accepted by most people as a rouletted example]
SIX PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 6d sage-green SG 28, margins close to large, tied to a small irregular piece by 15-bars '8' cancel of Fremantle, Cat £400. Alex Rendon Certificate (1989). [The 6d is a common stamp. However, examples with full margins are very elusive]
SIX PENCE - IMPERFORATE: 6d sage-green SG 28, margins close to good, tied to a small piece by 15-bars '2' cancel of Perth in blue, Cat £400. Alex Rendon Certificate (1989).
SIX PENCE - ROULETTED: 6d sage-green SG 32 with rouletting on all sides and margins close to good except where just touching at left, light 15-bars '3' cancel of Perth, Cat £650. Much scarcer than the modest premium in Gibbons would suggest.
SIX PENCE - ROULETTED: 6d sage-green SG 32 with rouletting on all sides and margins close to large except where just touching at upper-right, 15-bars '1' cancel of Perth, Cat £650.
