|Description:||This 4 pence stamp of Western Australia is unique in several ways. The 'Inverted Swan' differs from most other 'invert' errors in that its frame is inverted, rather than the center, relative to the frame. Also, the 'Inverted Swan' is monochrome, whereas most other 'inverts' are bi-colored. All denominations (except the one penny black swan) were lithographed in Perth, Western Australia. The error was discovered in Ireland 9 years after the stamp's release. The swan was a symbol, and official emblem of the State of Western Australia, commemorating the early days of the Swan River Settlement.|
