1854 Laureates with Numeral Watermark 3d yellow-green SG 87 single with 'WACES' SG 87a, margins close to good; and horizontal strip of 3 [43-45] the first with 'WALE', margins close - at right - to large with a fragment of the adjoining unit at left, small scissor-cut between the first two units; Cat £400++. Superb! Multiples with full margins are rarely available. Paul Alcuri Certificate (1982) in German for the strip. [We find it extraordinary that Gibbons list the first variety, which is omission of a small part of one letter, but not the second, which involes the omission of the entire letter!]

1854-59 Large Diadems 6d imperforate plate proof in purple-brown on ungummed unwatermarked paper, close even margins, very fine 'CANCE[LLED]' Handstamp at U/R, Cat £15,000. Ex Ric Slade-Slade, Peter Jaffé, and 'Alvarado': sold for £7800. [Position 5 from the original block of 6]

Six examples each of the so-called 'Ormond Hill Specimens' were produced by Perkins Bacon for all of 'their' Colonies at the request of Rowland Hill's nephew and gifted to him, action that resulted in the Agent for the Crown Colonies terminating Perkins Bacon's printing contracts. 75 different stamps were involved, of 20 British Colonies and four stamps of Chile. The 'CANCELLED' h/s was applied to blocks of 6 that were later separated, often with scissors or a blade, resulting in many of the individual stamps being cut-into or having trimmed perfs on one or more sides. [NB: for NSW no issued stamps were available so plate proofs retained by the printers were utilised]

For New South Wales, only plate proofs for the 6d in purple-brown - five recorded - and the 1/- in blue - four recorded - have been identified, making NSW one of the most difficult Colonies from which to acquire an example. The Royal Collection includes one of each.
