Papua New Guinea 1962 5/- Patrol in bottom right corner block of 4 with 013275 sheet number in red. This was the first Australian printed multicoloured stamp prepared for release in 1962 but withdrawn before public issue because the design showed rifles being carried & this might cause a backlash considering past conflicts.
