    While I would not ordinarily promote a particular dealer (unless they have an advert on our website!), I thought the information might well be of interest to members. This scan is from an Aussie publication and, from a quick look at the website, it appears to have already been sold. For reference, Glen sometimes archives some of his Papua listings, to share with collectors.
    ps – I hope the entire scan shows, from the preview it’s not clear if it’s been cut off.

    These are NOT examples of the 1901 BNG die proofs. They were produced for the 9c PNG lakatoi 75th. anniversary issue stamp.

    The original BNG due proofs or stamps do not have crosshatching in the value tablet backgrounds or in other background areas as these do.

    Similar “die proofs” were sold in a Cherrystone auction in the USA a couple of years ago where they were similarly incorrectly described. I understand they sold for around $2,300.

    Glad to have that corrected (so then I hope no member was the buyer)
