VERY FINE. A DESIRABLE EXAMPLE OF THE THIRD WATERMARK TWO-SHILLLING BROWN CA MONOGRAM SINGLE. AMONG THE MOST CHALLENGING OF ALL KANGAROO MONOGRAMS TO FIND IN ANY CONDITION.
According to the Brusden-White catalogue, “only five CA monograms from Plate 1 can be traced, comprising a mint pair (ex Gray), three mint singles (one in the R.T.P. Chapman collection, now part of the Australia Post archival collection), and one used single.”
EXTREMELY FINE. QUITE LIKELY THE FINEST QUALITY THIRD WATERMARK TWO-SHILLING BROWN JBC MONOGRAM IN EXISTENCE. A MAJOR KANGAROO RARITY AND ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE “GOLDFARM” COLLECTION.
Scant few JBC monograms exist of this value. According to the Brusden-White catalogue, “six JBC monograms are recorded from Plate 1, comprising a mint rejoined strip of six (and therefore technically not a monogram strip of 3), two mint pairs and three mint singles (one wmk. inverted), plus a used block of 12 with punctured OS."

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE THIRD WATERMARK TEN-SHILLING DISPLAYING TWO PRONOUNCED ADDITIONAL KISS PRINTS OF THE FRAME, IN ADDITION TO THE BASIC DESIGN.
This fascinating stamp shows a marked vertical kiss print extending virtually the full height of the pink colored design. And there is also a second kiss print 1.5mm to the left of the other kiss print. While less pronounced, this additional kiss print can easily be seen both above and below the coastlines and below the value circle. The only other examples of this variety we have ever seen are incorporated into the famous ex Arthur Gray JBC monogram block of six with small “OS” punctures. The right four stamps within the Gray monogram block show traces of the additional kiss prints, with the bottom right stamp in that block being most pronounced. The stamp offered here could possibly be the only known mint non-”OS” kiss print recorded
EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE OF THE RAREST SHADE VARIETY OF THE THIRD WATERMARK ONE-POUND KANGAROO.
The rarity of this distinctive shade is largely due to the fact that most of this Harrison printing were overprinted for use in the N.W. Pacific Islands
VERY FINE. A SELECT EXAMPLE OF THE POPULAR BROKEN TAIL VARIETY ON THE THIRD WATERMARK ONE-POUND VALUE.
Only four positions on the sheet (L4, 9,12 and R27) yield this variety
