Phoenix Auctions: 1857 2/- Green Woodblock Single-Line Roulette 5½-6½: Lot 230: 2/- Dull Bluish Green/Pale Yellow [Pos 9] with roulettes gauging 5½-6½ at right and base. Apparently from a sheet treated by Robinson in 1859 using his rouletting machine prior to him being contracted to perforate the remaining stock of 2/- Woodblocks. The 'VICTORIA' duplex cancellations indicates a late post-1860 usage. Believed to be the only recorded example, and an important Woodblock rarity.
