1897-98 Experimental Separations Rouletted in Black & Perf 12½,13 1d red SG 260 tied to local cover - a bit aged - by Brisbane duplex of 23MY/10, a few toned perf tips, Cat £95 x10+ on cover. A very rare franking. [The late usage suggests a philatelic origin. However, the Type 9 duplex is recorded 1899-1907 only & we suggest that the year slug '01' was inserted upside-down, which was quite a common occurrence] The illustration is above Lot 209.

1899-1906 Widow's Weeds ½d perforated plate proof with '1837 - 1897' Removed from the Lower Corners (Blank Tablets) in blue-green on gummed watermarked wove paper BW #Q1(PP)1, large-part o.g., Cat $500. Chris Ceremuga Certificate (2007) states "very rare". [This design was adapted frim the intended Diamond Jubilee issue that had the years '1837' & '1897' in the tablets. The issued stamp had the tablets filled. The ACSC states this was "a plate proof block of 40...It was rejected...It is probable that not the whole of the block has survived. There is a strip of 10 in the HL White Collection in the Mitchell Library." An example sold at the Prestige auction of 14.4.2005 for $838] The illustration is above Lot 209.

1903 New Denomination Four Figures 9d coral-pink imperforate plate proof BW #Q43(E)1A on ungummed watermarked paper, margins close to good, Cat $2500+. Apparently the imperf proofs were printed only in this colour. Most of the plate proofs, in various colours, were perforated. [The ACSC states "Many of the proofs are defaced with pen-lines", as was the case with Colonel Harrie Evans' and Sir Gawaine Baillie examples. This may be the only non-defaced example we have offered]

The design was not approved. Instead the 9d 'COMMONWEALTH' design intended to be issued by all the States was selected.

Ex John Williams (UK): sold for $1689. [The ACSC at page 1/57 states "This was originally a machine for perforating lettercards, which was converted to a vertical comb in mid-1911. The gauge of the vertical line was variable, the stamps of the first row measuring 11½, the second row 11, the third row 12 & the fourth to twelfth rows 12½-12¾. It is customary to collect these variations in vertical strips (of 3)". Clearly the value is depressed by Gibbons not listing se-tenant strips of 3] (8 items)
