Co-authored by Dr. Edward and Joanne Dauer, America’s foremost banknote collectors, and John Pettit, Australia’s leading banknote dealer, this presentation book makes the ideal personal or corporate gift.

NEW SOUTH WALES


NSW16) Spectacular piece, with 2 of the scarcest face different NSW Imperfs, *AND* a rare postmark:  1852 6d Yellow Brown Laureate, 4 large margins, SG 74 - also being a very clear *DOUBLE PRINT*.  Alongside an 1853 8d Orange Yellow, SG 80, superb 4 margin.  Both tied by “55” Barred numeral of Newcastle scarce Type 1Bv (6mm x 10mm) rated “RRRR” by Freeman in new handbook.  Quite Superb condition, ex Clayton and the late Mark Dankin, who formed THE finest NSW collection post-war over half a century, and who ONLY bought the very finest, fault free material.  His NSW Collection won FIP Large Gold medals at Belgica 2001, Washington 2006 and España 2006.  Clean and fresh and with no foxing or thins or creases. Two essential face different imperfs, missing from 99% of collections.  No perforated versions were issued of either so these are globally sought.  Melbourne Retail $1,000 as average used OFF piece. With a double print AND a rare “RRRR” cancel it is a gem in top condition. SG £875 for average which figure is insane - 5 years ago these were HIGHER, and all NSW around them have risen in price - often many fold.  The Besancon collection sold NSW imperfs late 2017 for MULTIPLES of full SG catalogue for quality examples, and the new SG will reflect that.  Details of that sale here - Tinyurl.com/Besancons.  For the astute buyer, who recognises and appreciates top quality with THE finest provenance - a totally UNIQUE piece -  $3450

Addressed to James Hogan MP. James Francis Hogan MP (29 December 1855 – 9 November 1924) was an Irish history professor at University College Cork, author and Member of Parliament for Mid Tipperary 1893–1900. Born in County Tipperary in 1855, to Rody and Mary Hogan, he had one sister, Margaret. The family emigrated to Melbourne in 1856, when he was at the age of 1, and lived in Geelong, attending St. Mary's Catholic School there, before a year at St Patrick's College, Melbourne. He graduated and began to teach in 1872. He began writing in local newspapers on Catholic topics, before later editing the Victorian Review. Joining the Victorian Catholic Young Men's Society in 1884 he admired the legacy of Daniel O'Connell and campaigned to erect a memorial to him. He published works on the Irish colonisation of Australia, including “The Gladstone Colony: An Unwritten Chapter of Australian History and The Irish in Australia” in the late 1880s. He then returned to England, and in 1893 was elected unopposed to the House of Commons as MP for Mid Tipperary. He served as secretary of the Colonial Party under Sir Charles Dilke. Following retirement as an MP in 1900, he moved to Ireland to teach at the University College, Cork. There, he became associated with the Blueshirt movement, advocating a Christian democracy which clashed with the more right-wing aims of their leader Eoin O'Duffy. He remained unmarried at his death, and was survived by his sister. Great historical piece, $249
