1932 5/- Sydney Harbour Bridge commercially used with neat central indistinct cds. Postally used examples are much scarcer than CTO with most such stamps having been used on interstate or overseas parcels hence tears, creases, thins, heavy cancellations, etc. It is thought that for every 100 CTO stamps, there may be two or three postally used examples & a ratio of less than 1:100 for fine used examples with a steel cds. A lovely example of commercially used, well centred with excellent perfs. SG 143 Cat. $500 for commercially used
