1932 5/- Sydney Harbour Bridge commercially used with bold part Melbourne 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. Irregular perfs at top & ironed out corner crease but a genuine commercially used example. SG 143, ACSC 148, Cat. $500 for commercially used.
