Phoenix Auctions: 1854 1/- Registered Woodblock Imperforate: Lot 160: 1/- printed essay in rose and gold on thin paper. Small thin near top, and minor surface soiling, but most attractive. Printed from an unadopted key plate, the most obvious difference being the small words 'ONE' and 'SHILLING' below the bust which appear horizontal on this essay but curved in the issued stamps. Unique in this colour combination, and a very important Woodblock rarity. Ex Nissen and Perry.
