SG 211(w) cat £55 as normal & unlisted with the wmk error (in comparison the only listed wmk sideways on this issue is the 10c which cat £1.50 as normal & £4500 as the wmk sideways error. The rarity of wmk error on $2 high value has to be much greater as no bulk quantites of $2 stamps would exist unlike low values. & also a $2 stamp is something previous collectors would have checked for wmk to sort the 1912 from the 1921 issue, so any other surviving examples of such a major wmk error would have been spotted).
