1893 1/- & 2/6d blue Coolgardie Cycle Express in complete sheets of 35. Usual patchy gum & 3 x 1/- have light thins but scarce survivors & rarely seen. The service was closed in Dec 1896 after being suppressed by the postal authority. It had been opened to expediate mail delivery when the Post Office provided only a weekly service. A lovely iconic West Australian issue.
