    1854: The famous three hand drawn Essays on card (114 x 74 mm.), each with background to Queen's portrait in vignette coloured in brown watercolour, with frames picked out in pencil, originally for the 2 d. value but re-submitted with the values altered to 'One Shilling' at base for the 1854 Tender, the first example with Artist's initials "JCR" in upper corners, and endorsed on reverse with "Jas Redaway 18/4/54" signature and date. Illustrated in 'Stamps of Victoria' by Geoff Kellow RDP on page 81. Minor imperfections with pin holes away from designs and slight damp patches on the card of no great significance, being both a most delightful Essay of great philatelic importance and undoubtedly unique.rnrnProvenance: Collection J.
