2 Australian States - Western Australia #91b The rare perf 12 x 11 variety of the 1905-1912 issue 2 Pence Yellow Swan, wmk 13, mint NH. While the gum is intact and undisturbed, there is a tiny black ink spot on the gum. As this is well away from where any hinge would have been, it is clear that it is as described simply a small black ink mark that hides nothing and detracts little. This stamp is almost perfectly centered with the face and gum as fresh as the day issued. A gorgeous and Superb stamp which has been properly stored to retain its freshness. Note that the Scott catalogue value is for Hinged. 2019 Scott US$925.00= $1,202.50 $210
