    AUSTRALASIA, AUSTRALIAN COLONIES, TASMANIA, 1854 4D COURIER PLATE II

    Lot 151
    Estimate: $2,500 Realised Price : $4,600

    4d Orange [1], SG 10, very early impression, unused example with even margins. Ex Sebastian Earl

     

    Lot 152
    Estimate: $9,000 Realised Price : $14,500

This is one of the earliest Plate II usages recorded and generally accepted as the finest 4d Courier on cover in existence. 1979 BPA Cert states the stamp is SG 5, which we suspect is based purely upon the intense colour of the adhesive.
