A VERY RARE PROOF WITH ONLY ONE BLOCK OF 40 BEING PRODUCED.

From the
Australian Commomnwealth Specialists' Catalogue: "A plate proof block of 12 of this design was submitted in September 1899. It was rejected with the request that the spaces at foot be filled in and the appearance of the Queen's be head improved. It is probable that not the whole of this block has survived; there is a strip of 10 in the H.L. White collection in the Mitchell Library, Sydney".
