577 og 37b image#37b, 2/- Brown, imperforate on three sides, horizontal pair, top sheet-margin horizontal pair, being imperforate at top and sides, well centered and margined, rich luxuriant color on bright paper, o.g., lightly folded between the two stamps and partly separated by hand resulting in a small tear (neatly closed) just touching the right hand stamp, not detracting from this pair's extremely fine appearance nor from its desirability and importance as one of Australia's greatest rarities.The rarity of this remarkable pair is best detailed by the editors of the Australian Commonwealth Specialist's Catalogue and we quote: "One sheet from Plate 2 showing the top row imperforate except at base was discovered in Adelaide in 1920. The strip of 12 errors was divided into four pairs and a strip of three; the twelfth stamp was lost. One pair is in the Royal Collection, and another is in the R.T.P. Chapman collection, now part of the Australia Post archival collection. A third pair was in a collection stolen in 1984, and its present status is uncertain. The strip of three has since been divided into a pair and single.The pair offered here is the left pair from the strip of three that was broken into a pair and a single following the sale of the strip in the May 2001 auction of the Colonel Harrie Evans collection (Premier Philatelic Auctions). The strip realized A$88,000 (including premium), which at the time was a world record auction price for any Commonwealth of Australia stamp item. Only this pair, and one other (in a private collection in Australia), are in private hands. An extraordinary opportunity to acquire not only one of Australia's greatest rarities, but one of the most important rarities of the entire Commonwealth as well (A$75,000).
