    c1903 Artist's Handpainted Essays (5) in Black, Grey and Chinese White for a 9d value. Two feature the coats-of-arms of the six States, two feature King Edward VII, and the fifth shows the Southern Cross. Although nothing is known of the history of these essays, or the identity of the designer, these almost certainly date from 1903 when steps were being taken to develop a uniform design for the 9d stamps to be used by all States (eventually only N.S.W. and Queensland used the adopted design). The essays are clearly drawn by the same hand as the set of five essays (two 2d, three 2d) dated to 1903 listed by Brusden-White as E25-29 and considered to be submission for a Commonwealth uniform issue. The essays are on thin card, four 107mm x 125 and numbered 1 to 4, the fifth smaller (46mm x 105mm), the whole have been affixed together on an album page. A beautiful set, ex G.J. Hutson
