Australia 1902-11 1d carmine-rose, SG135
Western Australia 1902-11 1d carmine-rose, watermark V over crown sideways (type 33), horizontal pair, perforations compound of 12½x12 (comb) and 11 line (at foot), SG135.
A fine used example with large part strikes of GERALDTON circular date stamps, dated 'SP 26 05'.
An exceptional rarity as a multiple, with not even single examples being recorded in private hands by Brusden White Specialist Australia catalogue in 2004.
Needless to say, the current Stanley Gibbons catalogue value of £1,000 for a single used example appears ridiculously under-valued.
The iconic Swan issue of Western Australia was used as it was the emblem of the Colony and a reminder of when it was known as the Swan River Settlement.
Accompanied with a British Philatelic Association certificate of authenticity (2007).
