    Lot 123
    Estimate: $500

    Dull Blue pos. [8] good margins all round showing framelines at left and right, with wider margin at top showing portion of double frameline. The 2d Sydney View was printed by a print-and-turn technique which created two impressions in tęte-bęche format. Apart from the famous tęte-bęche pair on cover, the only evidence of this mode of printing is in the form of stamps showing ‘double compartment lines’ at top or bottom, the additional line being the outer frameline of the adjoining impression. Only when the two impressions were close do such examples occur, and even so such stamps are rare. Very scarce

    Dull Blue pos. [??] good margins all round, wide at bottom, on 1850 (2 Feb) registered entire from Bathurst to Sydney (FE 5 1850 arrival backstamp), cancelled crisp reversed ‘9’ numeral, and with manuscript ‘Registered’. Heavy horizontal fold and lighter vertical fold clear of stamp, otherwise fine and rare. Five internal registered covers bearing Sydney Views are recorded
