    AUSTRALIAN COLONIES, NEW SOUTH WALES, OFFICIALS

    Lot 142
    Estimate: $2,000

    1879-85 Wmk Crown over NSW (I) 3d Dull Green perf 12 irregular block of 52, being the larger part of a left pane, some perf separation and a few units stained but a remarkable piece. SG O5bb Cat £10400+. This piece is the more remarkable as it shows the final opt setting introduced in late 1884 for the small DLR stamps. This showed the ''O'' and ''S'' spaced 7mm with [22] on each pane being the variety 8½mm spacing and [28] having a broken ''O''; both these varieties are present in this block. Other than for this piece, there is no evidence for the use of this setting on the 3d value and the block may be of trial status, particularly as it represents a very late use of this 3d printing. A detailed article reporting the discovery of this block appeared in ''Sydney Views'' of August 1986
