 461   */**   A/A+   Perforated 'OS': 1905-12 Crown/A single-volume collection with all values to 5/- (four blocks of 4)
                     mostly in large multuples, some of which may be the largest recorded blocks including a superb 2/-
                     corner block of 12 of which 11 units are unmounted, numerous shades & some watermark varieties
                     noted, also variety in the perfins being Upright or Sideways. There are also six different 1d Monogram
                     blocks.

                     In 2002, the collection was catalogued at £5600 as normal singles. Since then, values generally have
                     risen, and the publication in 2006 of the ACSC "Early Federal Period" Catalogue has rekindled interest
                     in the States issues of the 1901-12 era. We are confident the current catalogue value for this collection
                     would exceed $20,000 for mounted singles, to which must be added the often significant premiums for
                     unmounted material and for blocks.

                     It should also be noted, that issues from this period are fertile territory for varieties. Little work has
                     been published in this field so this collection also represents a wonderful research opportunity,
                     especially as the high number of positional blocks will be of great assistance in identifying plate
                     positions etc.

                     From other perspectives, the collection will also be of great interest to the specialist in perfins, officials,
                     or in the overall early Commonwealth Period.

                     At an average of only about $12 per stamp, our estimate must be seen as both attractive and
                     conservative. The vendor would like to see his collection acquired by another enthusiast and has
                     instructed us that he is willing to consider any reasonable payments plan to assist a potential buyer.
