Australia New South Wales 1860-72 1d dull red, SG155

SKU JC2584

Australia New South Wales 1860-72 1d dull red 'diadem Queen Victoria', watermark double-lined '1', perforations 13, vertical pair, SG155.

A fine mint pair with large part original gum. Typical brownish gum as usually seen for this issue, with some wrinkling and re-inforcement. Nevertheless, remarkably fine quality for this stamp.

Stanley Gibbons catalogue value: £340+.

These stamps represented the first use of perforation in New South Wales in 1860. Unfortunately for collectors, the stamps were very closely spaced, the perforating process not well controlled, and it is unusual to find stamps from before 1899 where the perforation does not touch or cut into the design on one or more sides.
