Australia Commemorative Issues. 1955 (Aug.) Y.M.C.A. 3½d. with variety red (emblem) omitted, tiny natural inclusion in circle, some slight soiling, mainly on reverse, and a few gum creases, otherwise fine with part original gum. One of the great rarities of Australian philately. R.P.S. Certificate (1974). S.G. 286a, £26,000; BW 328c, $50,000. Photo

Note: Two examples of the missing triangle error have been reported. This mint example was purchased at a Sydney post office. The second example is used on cover, cancelled by a Caufield South machine postmark, 20 September 1955, and is defective. It is believed that in both cases the error has been caused by a paper fold during printing.. . provenance:. George Bloch, Christie’s Australia, October 1990 (Estimate 15000 – 20000)
