South Australia, Departmental stamp, 1868, "L.A" = LUNATIC ASYLUM overprint in red on 1d. bright yellow-green, with complete roulette on all sides (at right inside the stamp), cancelled "GPO ADELAIDE AP 5 72. Small fault at top right otherwise in fine condition.

This extremely rare stamp is rated "5R" (= 2-3 KNOWN) in the book of A.R.Butler: the Departmental stamps of South Australia, it is actually the rarest value of all Lunatic Asylum overprints. The Harry Napier collection didn´t include a used example.

The 133. "Prestige Philately" auction (lot 554) showed another used single which sold for 1150 AUD ( = 1300 AUD with the auction fees = 830 EUR). It had the following description:
"SOUTH AUSTRALIA - Official Stamps - Departmental Overprints
LUNATIC ASYLUM: Red ´L.A.´ on Rouletted 1d dull green, very late usage with "socked-on-the-nose" GPO cds of JU19/74. Rated RRRRR. A gem! [Remainders were used-up by the Government Printer after the general usage of Departmentals ceased in early-1874. Far superior to "Sir Humphrey´s" example - also used in 1874 - that sold for $661]"
