[John Bell's similar selection of 28 stamps sold for $3378]

All 'OS' Overprints were withdrawn at the end of 1894. It was decided to create collectors' sets by cancelling the remainders, and reprints were made of various obsolete issues to provide sets of 32 different stamps. Of the 1000 sets prepared, 900 sets were cancelled with the 'NSW' h/s. However, after only 159 sets had been sold, public outcry caused withdrawal of the balance & they were destroyed. (28)
