VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONALLY CHOICE JOHN ASH IMPRINT BLOCK OF THE SMALL MULTIPLE WATERMARK TEN-SHILLING KANGAROO. AMONG THE FINEST KNOWN OF THIS RARE IMPRINT BLOCK.

An elusive imprint block that is almost never seen offered at auction. In fact, the massive holding of Kangaroos assembled by Sir Gawaine Baille (Sotheby's, July 2005) only had imprint pairs of this value, and even the Col. Evans, Nelson, Pope and Morgan collections of Kangaroos did not have an imprint block.
