1910 10/- bright purple in bottom selvedge block of 6 with "VICTO" of wmk clearly visible. Superb & fresh MUH, one unit with slightly "sweated" gum affecting 25% of the stamp but in no way detracting from a stunning multiple. ACSC page 1/369 (2004 ed) notes "mint blocks of the 10/- are very rare but exist in each shade. The largest multiples are blocks of 6 of each shade sold in the Australia Post archival sale in 1986". SG 127a, Cat. £5700 as singles + premium for block.
