Weeda's Weekly Stamp Sale

Bidboard # 1946

Lot # 8



Australian States - New South Wales #24/128, J1-J2, O13/O25.
Selection of issues from 1854 to 1906, consisting of seventy-seven stamps, in mainly used condition, on two pages. The best stamp in this group is #40a, the aniline lilac 6p. Note the Watermarks on the 5p and 8p "diadems" from the top of the sheet showing "NEW SOUTH WALES POSTAGE". This was put there for the benefit of the printer so he would be sure to use the correct paper when printing the stamps. For some strange reason this is only, briefly, mentioned in Gibbons and no premiums are shown even 'though such stamps are obviously much scarcer than those with regular watermarks and are a legitimate variety collectible. For the same strange reason the Australian Catalogues have never attempted to list the Official perforated initials stamps for any of the States. See a few examples (un-priced) at the end of this offering. Owner's 2023 Scott US$475.15 =

On our bidboard page you will notice that we have included a declining clock that displays the time remaining in the sale, subject to the addition of overtime. There is an automatic 3 minute bidding extension if a bid is submitted on any lot within the last 3 minutes on the bidding clock. These time extensions will continue to occur until there is a 3 minute period during which no bidding takes place. We expect overtime with this type of bidding will last between one to two hours in extra bidding time. This extra time will allow you to make sure you get the lots you really want.
