And perhaps a bird in the sky above the D of Trinidad. You may even have some cracking by the hilt of the sword and beneath the beard of the king? Take it out and have a closer look.

Hi Huanga

Unfortunately - they're not. The plastic sleeves of hagners and dry weather and my bad house keeping mean that lint sometimes gets in the way. Although the spot/bit near the beard looks like some stray ink from the scenery side of things - too transient for me to really note though.

Hi Everyone,

I'm a frequent visitor to the site BUT very infrequent poster! I wrote the articles for Gibbons Stamp Magazine in the 1990s on these Windsor Castle varieties.

I had over 170 complete sheets across the Colonies with at least one complete sheet from all the known plates. The varieties in the VIGNETTE colour are progressive because they are plate damage.

Being recess printed impurities in the ink scratched into the chromed plates and scored grooves. There are NO KNOWN constant breaks in the flagstaff, just under inking.

The varieties in the frames, mainly re-entries were there from the creation of the plates. Scratches & marks in the vignette colours need to be found on another value and/or Colony to be considered constant.

The extra flagstaff occurred during the printing of the Hong Kong 5c which was a single print run with no reprints. I had an almost complete sheet without the variety & a complete sheet with the variety.

The 3c was printed before the 5c because I had a complete sheet from plate 1 WITHOUT the variety.

Hope this clears up some misunderstandings?

PAPUA 1935 Jubilee 5d stamp with "ACCENT Flaw", in VFU Ash Imprint Plate Number pair!

What a GEM. :mrgreen:

The ACCENT Flaw in a pair is not often seen – SG £120 = $A240 as a used SINGLE.

Especially in an ASH Imprint pair, and especially genuinely used! Best of all, the pair has an unusually wide lower margin which the printer mostly guillotined off, so we have a plate number “1” clearly showing at central base.

WHAT a Quadrella. And superbly centred and fresh and clean and fault free. :mrgreen:

Neat “IOMA – 11 JUL : 35 – PAPUA” cds. Not the FDI, so might well be commercial used – who knows?

An absolute Cracker – and almost certainly is unique in this terrific combo.

Good evening,

Looking through my Jubilee's I found this block of 6. On the right hand 3 there is a thin green line that starts at the top and ends at the bottom of the 3 stamps, even seen in the borders.

Recently noted a possible "Unlisted" PLATE Flaw on the "Waterlow & Son" prints on Straits Settlement - 12c SG258

On closer inspection on the Straits Settlement 12c SG258, Damaged turret (probably in early stage) which eventually contributed to the listed 'SG258j Damaged turret (Plate "1" R.5/6)'

Any ideas? I don't believe it matches any on the website linked to above.
The 'Dot to left chapel (Plate 2B R.8/3)' PLATE FLAW only found on 'De La Rue & Co' prints. BARBADOS were printed by 'Waterlow & Sons'. You are most UNLIKELY to see the 'Dot to left chapel (Plate 2B R.8/3)' flaw on Barbados.

I have a similar 'Dot' variety, but is further towards the right on the 2d SG124 of 'NYASALAND'. 'BARBADOS' & 'NYASALAND' both printed by 'Waterlow & Sons'. It is worth to note that that the 'DOT' have move along the same horizontal position, but towards the 'right'.

'DOT' has happily moved towards the EAST on this NYASALAND 2d SG124

The dot on Barbados stamp is on the centre plate, on Nyasaland it is on the frame plate, so an entirely different thing.

Agreed! I'm simply trying to point out the fact that the Barbados 'DOT' variety is almost certainly NOT to be the 'Dot by flagstaff (Plate "4" R.8/4) variety as per listed under SG. Barbados is printed by 'Waterlow & Son", while the 'Dot by flagstaff (Plate "4" R.8/4) variety can only came from 'De La Rue & Co".

Both Barbados and Nyasaland were printed by 'Waterlow & Son", thus the reason I'm trying to link them together. The "'DOT" (or UFO/ Flying Saucer") could be just a flying saucer on "Waterlow & Son".

Ok, link them, but they are still unconnected, aside from being from the same printer.

They are not the same flaw.

The Barbados flaw above and to the left of the Flagpole is a well described Waterlow variety.

It occurs on Plate 5 Row 8 Column 4.

I used to have the Silver Jubilee website with all the varieties listed (Web Software became outdated and too complicated to redo everything so I took it down).

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the constructive response. I'm waiting for my new SG catalogue to learn more about all the new discovered PLATE FLAWS. The 1935 KGV Silver Jubilee Omnibus Series is full of wonder and surprise, waiting for dedicated and serious collector(s) to identify more new discovery. Have a good day.

Wonder if anyone can advise if this BARBADOS SG242 1½d with the deformed 'N' in 'WINDSOR' a constant PLATE FLAW? Also not sure if the 'ROUND' shape a stain or PLATE FLAW? Upon checking the back of the stamp, it looks perfectly fine. Would be good to have a better and high resolution scanner to get a better scan for sharing.

Came across another from the 1935 KGV Silver Jubilee from Kenya, Uganda & Tanganyika (by De La Rue & Co) ~ 30c SG125 with Damaged Turret. Is this a constant PLATE FLAW? The Waterlow & Sons do have a constant PLATE FLAW on Damaged Turret but not sure if De La Rue & Co has a similar PLATE FAULT? Please share yours if you have a similar by De La Rue.

Interesting items.

Barbados 1.5d
The spot on the stamp appears to be a stain (difficult to see as detail very poor). Vignette Plates 1, 3, ?5 and 9 were used for this value. All of the 1.5d stamps were from the first printing only.There are no described flaws in this position. If a 'flaw,' then it is probably a 'one-off.'
Re the damaged 'N' of Windsor. This is a frame flaw and thus should be seen on multiple sheets. I have not seen such an example before.

KUT 30c
You are correct that the Brunswick Tower has a constant flaw and is damaged only in Waterlow vignette printings. It is also higher up and part of the parapet is usually missing. I have not seen a similar flaw in the De la Rue printings and could not find an example in my database. Again, I think this is most likely a 'one-off' flaw.

Good evening everyone,
I posted a query here a year ago regarding a Malta 1/2d green but received no answers so here we go with another query.
Do these 3 stamps look correct, the flag posts on the top & bottom stamps look a bit weak.
These are high quality scans.
Regards ..... Gary.

There are a number of issues to note here

a) The middle stamp has the extra-flagstaff variety. Plate 1 Column 1 Row 9. When it was first described in the 1930s it was called the "double flagstaff." This was in the Gibbons Stamp Monthly issue of September 1935. I suspect the printed information about the "double flagmast" in the selvedge may have been applied sometime in the late 1930s.

b) The masts of the flagpoles on top of the Round Tower show some variation in inking in the upper and lower stamps (see note by John C - 800mman) on 13 January 2017.

Many thanks for your reply philatel2.

I was a little dubious about these stamps mainly because of the weakness of the flagpoles but also because the stamps have no gum.

Why would mint, unused stamps have no gum ? This doesn't make sense to me, what am I missing here.

Two possible answers to your question (likely more but two came to mind quickly):

They may be used stamps that did not get cancelled. It is not uncommon for a stamp (even that old) to not get the proper cancel.

Another possibility is that the gum was removed on purpose to avoid toning the stamp paper as the gum aged (or to remove a heavy hinge remnant).

I’m sure others will chime in with more options….

I have not even sighted the stamp but can clearly see toned RH perfs on all units. Gawd knows what the reverse is like. :lol: :lol: :lol:

So the strip probably was VERY badly foxed/toned and hence near unsaleable.

As a dealer I often see such pieces that might be worth say $200, offered as mint original gum with heavy hinges and bad gum toning and foxing, but you will more quickly sell it as fresh unused no gum at $250. Basic math. :lol:

Whomever gave it a bath did a less than impressive job, but that certainly will be the reason.

As to the MORON who used a typewriter to note the variety .... stupidity is, as stupidity does.

Thanks for your feedback. I spotted the 'Damaged 'N' of Windsor of Barbados by chance. I have since checked all my SJ omnibus issues, but unable to find another example. Hopefully one day a few more examples will come around. The SJ omnibus is always full of surprise, waiting to be discovered.

As for the KUT 30c Brunswick Tower 'damaged turret', it is also an interesting discovery in 'De La Rue & Co' prints. Hope to find a few more to confirm if this is a 'one-off' or 'constant' flaw.

The study of KGV SJ omnibus issues is quite a fascinating, slow and laborious, but rewarding and fun activity.

Thanks for your valuable feedback. It is very much appreciated.

Have a good day.

Hi Neil,

I scanned the Barbados (600dpi) again and noted another interesting White Gap on Top left of the Brunswick Tower. Please refer to attach for details.
'White Gap on Top left of the Brunswick Tower'.
'White Gap on Top left of the Brunswick Tower'.
'

As for the 'Stain' mark, I attached the back of the stamp for your reference. If this is a 'Stain' mark, I would expect to see some 'tone mark' on the back. However the back of the stamp is in good clean condition. Not sure if the 'Stain" mark is a one-off printing abnormality.

Thanks for your response on these SJ issues. Your feedback is precise and relevant. It is also informative and good for reference. It's ashamed that you have shut down your website which contains all the hard work you put in. Would you be able to share all your findings again if I am able to work out to create a new website on your behalf?

Have a good day.

Hi Neil,

I came across the below 'Dash by Turret' on the Brunswick Tower from 'Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co' and 'De La Rue & Co'. Despite from different printers, the 'Flaw/Variety' appears to be very similar. Are these known (and constant) FLAW? Appreciate your input on these. Thanks in advance.

Re: 1935 KGV Silver Jubilee Stamp Omnibus Variety Tracker Thread

I have not even sighted the stamp but can clearly see toned RH perfs on all units. Gawd knows what the reverse is like. :lol: :lol: :lol:

So the strip probably was VERY badly foxed/toned and hence near unsaleable.

As a dealer I often see such pieces that might be worth say $200, offered as mint original gum with heavy hinges and bad gum toning and foxing, but you will more quickly sell it as fresh unused no gum at $250. Basic math. :lol:

Whomever gave it a bath did a less than impressive job, but that certainly will be the reason.

As to the MORON who used a typewriter to note the variety .... stupidity is, as stupidity does.
Many thanks for the replies, yes the rear of the stamp does have some foxing/toning, so I assume that this is why there is no gum.

I can't agree more about the typewriter note .... ye gods, why would anyone think that was a good idea!
I bought the strip in Britain so maybe the price I paid wasn't too bad ... $15 in US money.
P.S...... Does anyone have any comments regarding my post of November 14th 2020, the halfpenny green with a green line through the stamps.
Regards .... Gary.

Lots of interesting stuff.

Bradbury hairlines can be difficult to plate. The commonest one closest to the position of the one you showed is found on Bradbury vignette plate No.1. Usually there are two parallel hairlines but I have seen a number with just one. They are usually found in the second column and run from rows one through eight. I had a look at your block of six but couldn't identify any flaws in the column to the left (presumably column one). There is only one real identifier and I don't see it here (two small dots in Row 6, column 1 just below the top frame roughly in the same horizontal position as the hairline in column 2).

Re Dash by Turret: Thanks for drawing my attention to these.I had not seen the downward mark at the bottom edge of the battlement before (or should I say, I had not looked for it before - nice pick up). I went through my collection and found a couple more examples.
My general rule of thumb is that if you see one or two examples, consider them "one offs." Any more suggests a constant flaw. I don't know which vignette plate the De La Rue printed ones come from and I don't know which stamp position. I have a number of very high resolution scans of different sheets and plates. It will take me a couple of days to go through these to see if I can come up with something more definitive.
Re the line along the bottom of the Brunswick battlement. It my collection there is a fair amount of variation in the line (from very thick to quite diffuse). I think the variation is quite common and would not get all that excited about it. . Remember all of the vignette plates came from an original roller die supplied by Waterlow. Each of the printers made minor adjustments and flaws are seen on different vignette plates.

Thanks Neils!

Your in-depth knowledge on the 1935 Silver Jubilee omnibus series is of enormous contribution to all the KGV Siver Jubilee collectors. At least that's my personal view.

Have a good day.
