1891 Lined Background ½d green as HG E1 but with the Stamp Impression below & Aligned with the Right-Hand Side of the Text piece (125x67mm) with 'The NORTH QUEENSLAND/MINING ANNUAL' Overprint in Red, to "Hon Baden Powell/House of Commons/London" with worn strike of GB '[crown]/R' postal inspector's h/s. [The first issue was available from 25.11.1891 but was authorised only from 1.1.1892, when the ½d Newspaper Rate was introduced]

The stock is most unusual, being of superior quality and highly surfaced on the face, unlike any other Queensland wrapper we have encountered. This raises the possibility that this is a previously unrecognised Stamped-to-Order issue and not just an overprint on a Post Office-issue wrapper.

1895 Void Background ½d green as HG E2 but with the Stamp Impression Inverted!!, to Melbourne with fair 'IPSWICH/FE4/96/...' cds, folded below the stamp, Kosniowski Cat £500 which must be very conservative. Unique! One of the most extraordinary Postal Stationery errors we have ever seen: illustrated at page 59. [With 2009 article by Mark Diserio recording the discovery of this startling item, in which he quotes ebay Wrapper guru Dr John Courtis: "It is the first case of an inverted stamp on a wrapper I have ever heard about from anywhere in the world..."]

Interestingly, Alan Griffiths at page 59 states that - based on distinguishing marks - neither the stamp cliché nor the text block have been recorded on any other wrapper. This indicates that the stamp & text were one 'unit' on the stone and that the whole was quickly substituted when the error was discovered.
