Tasmania
Lot Lot Description CV or Estimate
145 imageTasmania. 1855 (Nov.) second state of plate, 4d. orange with double impression, good margins on three sides, outer frameline just into at top right, lightly cancelled "59", fine. The only example recorded in this shade. S.G. 8. Photo
Note: Collectors became aware of the double impressions of the Couriers in the early part of the century, but very few have come to light. To date, seven examples have been recorded across all printings. This error was originally listed by Stanley Gibbons in 1971 and inextricably removed in 2010. The doubling is especially evident in the inscriptions. (Image1)

154 imageTasmania. 1857-67 watermark double-lined numeral 4d. pale blue printed both sides, the second impression inverted, touched or just-into on three sides, cancelled by Barred Numeral "18" (Campbell Town); repaired tear at lower right and some slight discolouration on reverse. One of the great rarities of Tasmania with two examples recorded. RPSV Certificate (2016). S.G. 36. Photo
Note: Currently, Stanley Gibbons only catalogue the 4d. printed both sides in the bright blue shade of S.G. 38a. The distinction between the pale blue and bright blue shades of this error was not made until recently. An example in pale blue with the second printing inverted appeared in a Harmers of London auction in January 1940. This was also cancelled by the Barred Numeral "18" of Campbell Town. The second example above has only recently been discovered. (Image1)
