lot # 752 - Australia KANGAROOS 1913 FIRST WMK

Thursday Dec 08, 2022 12:00 Australia/Sydney

£2 Black & rose. The famous Sperati forgery, reverse with 'Sperati Reproduction' h/s added by the BPA. Superb U appearance with excellent centring, with genuine NSW machine pmk, having been printed on paper from a used Kangaroo 1d red stamp from which the design had been chemically removed (also interesting to note that it would be impossible to get a machine cancel on a genuine £2 as machine cancels were only used to cancel postcards & small letters, so can only occur on low values). Much rarer than genuine £2 Kangaroo. SG 16(F) cat £4000 as normal. ACSC 55c cat $7500. Important specialist item & certificate can be obtained on request. (P)
Estimate A$6000
