VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE ELUSIVE FIRST WATERMARK FIVE-PENCE CHESTNUT JBC MONOGRAM. FEW EXIST IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.
Catalogued as a hinged monogram strip of three and three never hinged singles. Ex Gray and Lord Steinberg
FINE-VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST WATERMARK SIX-PENCE JBC MONGRAM STRIP OF THREE. AMONG THE MORE CHALLENGING FIRST ISSUE VALUES TO FIND IN A MONOGRAM STRIP.
Actually among the various important Kangaroo sales of the past decade, this is one of the finest examples to have been offered
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE TWO-SHILLING FIRST WATERMARK ISSUE WITH EITHER A CA OR JBC MONOGRAM IS A MAJOR RARITY AS VERY FEW EXIST. ONLY ONE EACH EXIST IN PRIVATE HANDS AS A MINT MONOGRAM STRIP OF THREE, SO A MONOGRAM SINGLE IS VIRTUALLY THE ONLY WAY ONE CAN OWN A MONOGRAM EXAMPLE OF THIS VALUE.
A very similar quality JBC monogram single (also with a crease) realized £8,500 (plus the buyer's premium) in the 2012 Spink sale of the Morgan Collection
VERY FINE. A CHOICE NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST WATERMARK TEN-SHILLING KANGAROO.
Seldom encountered in this pristine state of preservation
FINE. THE FIRST WATERMARK TWO-POUND BLACK AND ROSE IS SCARCE IN AND OF ITSELF, BUT DISTINCT PLATE VARIETIES ARE EVEN MORE ELUSIVE AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE. THIS PARTICULAR VARIETY OF THE BROKEN VALUE CIRCLE AT RIGHT IS ONE OF THE MORE PROMINENT DUTY PLATE VARIETIES FOUND ON THIS HIGH VALUE.
Signed A. Diena
VERY FINE. A WONDERFULLY CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THIS DISTINCT DUTY PLATE VARIETY FOUND ON ONLY ONE POSITION ON THE SHEET.
Signed Holcombe and with his 1993 certificate (not noting the variety)
VERY FINE. AN ESPECIALLY CHOICE “USED” EXAMPLE OF THE REMARKABLE FORGERY CREATED BY THE MASTER FORGER, JEAN DE SPERATI. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT ONLY TWO “MINT” COPIES AND ABOUT TWO DOZEN “USED” COPIES ARE KNOWN.
An amazing forgery created by “fading out” genuine used lower values (so that the stamp will have a genuine watermark and cancellation) and printing the forged impression by photolithography. With 2008 Ceremuga certificate
