    Estimate: $500 Realised Price : $440

    1931 (18 Nov) KGV 2d Red CofA Wmk (Inverted) on cacheted 'First Day Cover' cancelled at Jerrara, NSW. This stamp must be from a booklet, which the ACSC records as not being issued until January 1932 (the earliest date for sheet stamps is given as 18 December 1931). However, there is no doubt that printings from the booklet plate on CofA Wmk paper were made well before the date on this cover, commencing in July 1931. Offered 'as is'
