Loving these Sharon - I was going through an album of early Canada last week and wondered about the booklet blocks, I think I will have to pick some up now! The previous blocks with the maps etc are nice too - I only have these in singles. :)

Nasinclair,

Never been one for Coronation Street, but I do like those Star Wars 8-)

I like these stamps a lot, they remind me of so many stamps put out around the world.

They reminded me of these immediately with their similar lay out:

Canada has certainly had some nice stamps issued, thanks for sharing these nice blocks.

Castores, I had not noticed the similarities with the Sarawak ones, I see it now though, well spotted.

They're nice, I like those too. I agree these colours are really appealing. Some of those are not too pricey to pick up too.

Norfolk yup, but wrong side of the planet :D

I'm in the UK - nice blocks though, not as keen on them as the previous, but they are new to me. The Rhododendron is striking though.

Thanks :)

Here is my prize Berlin block
Berlin block.jpg
Since I am partial to blocks of 4, there are three different blocks I can pick from.

The best one is from the upper right, nice single roller cancellation, almost centered on the block!

I would consider it a gem. But I will wait until I start making up my custom pages.

As a irregular block of 8, with a commercial roller cancellation, it should be a great deal scarcer then a block of 4.
It is impressive, but it does not have a balanced appearance.

Anyone want to give their pros or cons about breaking it down!

Is that a plate flaw below the 3 in the lower left stamp!? I'm rich, I'm rich! :o

My eyes aren't the best but to me there seems to be discolouring along the top of the top three stamps?
If so that would make the bottom left four the go...

Regarding the flaw, whether constant or not I'd keep it and with my pick of four it's perfect!

Here's a bit more of AAT

These are two of my favourite large used blocks fro Union of South Africa.

00001.jpg
The 6d OFFICIAL is from the 1929 issue.

00002.jpg
The 2d is the slate-grey and lilac from 1931 with the airship flaw in R3/1 in the block and the part arrow in the right margin makes it a proving piece.

Australia 1949 5½d Newcastle Sesqui-Centenary stamp, large perf freak IMPRINT block 4.
Australia 1949 5½d Newcastle Sesqui-Centenary stamp, large perf freak IMPRINT block 4.


Added this cool looker to stock today - stock 482KW for $A75. 8-)

Australia 1949 5½d Newcastle Sesqui-Centenary stamp, large perf freak IMPRINT block 4.

Attractive unused - has had a large turned over corner, that luckily for philately, was not detected by the Post Office quality control checkers. :D :D

These are seldom seen on Australian stamps, especially post war, and near always get 3 figures. If this were in a Phoenix Auction, the estimate would be $150 or so. :!:

When they have a plate number, or some printing on the turnover, we get up into 4 figures.

Hi gdmcon

Unfortunately VIII/15 was normal, before the defect (top frame broken left of crown) developed.

The JBC (Plate 4) monogram is State 2 - 1mm below marginal line, so the shade has to be either G18 or G19, which makes it too early as the rare flaw in red only arose in 1919.

Cheers
Alex

My interesting block is this block of 30, 1971 7c Reddish-Purple QEII MUH, with first column blank due to misprint.

It does also show part of a plate number, but not enough to distinguish :(

Not recorded in ASCS and have not seen another, possibly unique...I can hope anyway. :shock:

As far as I am aware these were issued 1 Oct 1971.
They were printed in sheets of 100 i.e. 10*10.
Your 3*10 may have additional perf holes but all columns are there.

Hi satsuma, thanks for responding.

I'm not sure about your comments on perfs you mentioned above, sorry.

The uniqueness as I see it is the blank 1st row, and the last row being printed in what should of been the salvage.

A few from Guernsey. I think with the colors they are quite striking mini sheets. They were intended to be cut for booklets.

Sorry
I thought your scan was cropped, and was missing the right edge.
If not, that is more intriguing.
