A well centered and very fine used example of the white paper printing of the 1 pound purple George Bass stamp from the 1963-1966 definitive issue. 

The white papers were introduced toward the end of 1963, and so the majority of the printings of the 10/-, 1 pound and 2 pound were on the cream paper.
