137 *A6d Lilac and Green [Pos 9] SG #33 overprinted 'SPECIMEN' Type 10, part original gum, and faint horizontal crease of no significance. Produced in 1879 when a number of obsolete Victorian stamps were overprinted with the contemporary handstamp. Two examples now exist, the other being in the Royal Collection. A third was known in the Purves collection but was destroyed in the Ash Wednesday bushfires. This stamp must rank as one of the most important and desirable Victorian Specimen stamps.
