Australia #288-291 (SG#290-293) 4d - 2/- 1956 Melbourne Olympics, a VFNH Privately Produced Lithographed Souvenir Sheet of 4

Sold out

A very fine NH example of the privately produced lithographed souvenir sheet of the four designs from the 1956 Melbourne Olympics Issue. The sheet is mentioned in a footnote in Scott, and not at all in Gibbons. The sheet has full gum and a printed commemorative cancel, that is part of the design.

    Neither catalogue prices this sheet. My recollection from the early 1980's was that the Australian catalogue priced this at $5 back then. This is the first one I have ever come across.
