Here are a few things, from a nice range of KGV blocks used I bought today, and will list up later, with the relevant collector notes. 8)

Stock 472GH and 477GK, and prices of $A165 and $A115.

The Red has the ''S-T Join" flaw and Mullett Imprint, and Brown is CTO full gum unhinged perf OS, also with constant plate variety on stamp 59 - MOST unusual. :mrgreen:

Not a BLOCK, but a used imprint pair of this is pretty darn cool I reckon. Without a doubt unique. :lol: :lol:
Image
Australia 1927 KGV scarce perf 14 Small Multi Wmk Mullett Imprint pair *USED* This stamp SG 93 is scarce even as a single used copy. SG £80 or ACSC $150 apiece, as used singles, because this fine tooth perforation was replaced just a year later with no advice to collectors, by the far more common perf 12½ x 13½.

That aside, in IMPRINT format, these are incredibly rare. ACSC has the hinged mint block at $4,000 as ACSC 129z. Any used imprint of KGV in any value is far scarcer than mint of course. The A.J. Mullett imprint was the only one used on this perforation, and only a few are recorded today, even mint, hence the $4,000 catalogue price. Attractive with neat dated SYDNEY cds. $A450 (Stock 726LQ)

Hi!

I think this one fits into this thread! Block of 8 KGV 5d chestnut CofA watermark Ash Imprint N over N from plate 3 with variety p: 3R55 "Flawed pearl in crown at left"! Cat. value for the block of 4 in mint is 325AU$, unfotunately not listed as postally used, but I think it will even be scarcer in postally used than in mint!? The postmark is not a CTO, it is a light "REGISTERED SYDNEY" postmark dated 4 OC 38.

What I found interesting is, that ACSC has position 3R56 with the variety 3q "Flawed pearl in crown at right", but in this block this flaw is not present at this position! Maybe the flaw developed later!?

1/4d small multiple watermark p.14, used pair

Whilst not a block, a pair (in fact any multiple) is difficult to find.

Better still, both stamps have listed ACSC varieties

1R11 - Colour flaw in King's hair, and 1R12 - Flawed right frame and shading
