270 og 51z image#51z, £1 Brown and blue, choice CA monogram single, extraordinarily bright and fresh, strong rich colors, well centered, o.g., lightly hinged, very fine.As with all of the bicolor First Watermark issues, any monogram pieces are extremely rare and highly sought after. Of the CA monogram there are only five mint singles recorded, one of which being from the R.T.P. Chapman collection, which is now housed in the Australia Post archival collection. In addition, there is the unique block of six handstamped "Specimen", which is offered in the next lot - for a total of six examples. The mint single offered here is one of the finest quality examples available. According to the ACSC, every example of both the CA and JBC monograms is incomplete by being trimmed at the base.To give potential bidders some sense of pricing history and comparison, a somewhat similar CA monogram single - the last to appear at auction - was sold by Prestige Philately in their January 2004 sale of the Greg Pope Gold Medal Collection. It's appearance at auction created considerable bidder interest and it realized a record A$77,500 (plus the 12% buyer's premium), the highest price ever achieved for a single Australian stamp. A record we expect to be broken several times with the remarkable range of rarities found throughout the Gray Collection (A$50,000). (Image) Est. 40,000-50,000

Of the CA monograms there are only five known, five mint singles (four of which are in private hands) and this unique corner margin block of six with "Specimen" handstamp.The high value First Watermark issues in monogram blocks of six - the most highly prized configuration for monogram collectors (if available) are enormous rarities. Only two exist, the 10/- and £1 blocks with "Specimen" handstamps, both of which are present in the Gray Collection; ex-Abramovich, Chapman (A$50,000). (Image) Est. 40,000-50,000
