The ACSC states "seven pairs have been identified...[including] a block of 4 in the Royal Collection & a pair in the Australia Post Archives..." & a lightly cancelled pair. That means only three mint pairs are available to collectors. Illustrated in the ACSC at page 5/7 & by Geoff Kellow at page 55. [Stuart Hardy's very fine mint pair sold in November 2012 for $17,475.

1927 Opening of Federal Parliament House 1½d upper-left corner blocks of 4 with Plate Numbers '1' to '12' complete BW #132z-zk, the plate numbers are mostly lightly printed as is usually the case, Number '2' shows 50% only but all other numbers are complete, most are well centred, Number '3' has a blemish in the margin at left and Number '6' has some split/rejoined perfs & a repaired tear into the corner stamp, all others are very fine to superb, most have two units unmounted, Numbers '1' '2' '3' and '5' have all units unmounted, Cat $27,000+ (mounted). A remarkable opportunity to acquire a complete set, in well above-average condition. Ex Dr Leslie Abramovich and Arthur Gray: sold at our auction of 30.10.2015 for $13,090.

The census of recorded plate blocks published in the ACSC was compiled by Alec Rosenblum very soon after the issue of the stamps: see Geoff Kellow at pages 52-53 where he notes that the census has largely survived the passing of almost 90 years although "it is likely that these numbers are now under-estimates". Having said that, there is no doubt that Numbers '1' to '5' are all rare, and that Numbers '6' to '11' range from scarce to very scarce. Certainly complete sets are very rarely encountered. There is a complete set in the Australia Post Archives but the Royal Collection is missing Numbers '1' '2' '4' and '8'. (12 blocks)
