INTERMEDIATE PERF 14-16: 4d vermilion SG 35, a trifle soiled, unused, Cat £1500. An underrated stamp: Mogens Juhl estimated only about 40 unused examples exist. [Dr Cecil Walkley's similar example sold for $1207] [Illustration above Lot 118]
INTERMEDIATE PERF 14-16: 6d brown-purple SG 36, perforations into the design at top & at left but cut from the sheet to preserve the design & apparently imperforate, unused, Cat £850. Another underrated stamp. Absent from Dr Cecil Walkley's collection.
PERF 14 AT SOMERSET HOUSE: 1d rose, 2d blue & 4d vermilion SG 38-40, the 1d & 4d cut from the sheets to preserve the design, the 1d & 2d with large-part o.g., Cat £850. (Qty 3)

The 2d & 1/- are Ex Bill McCredie, where the 1/- was noted as a proof that was not issued.̃̃It was also suggested in the McCredie catalogue that the obvious faults affecting the 2d & 1/- were inflicted "apparently officially". This statement lacks credibility & is refuted by the very fine condition of the 1d.
CLEAN-CUT PERF 14-16: 2d blue SG 41 block of 8 [9-10/39-40] with part '--- 2d' Stock Control Mark printed in rose across the upper units on the reverse, a few blemishes & tonespots, minor perf reinforcing, large-part o.g., Cat £720++.
