Re: Share your Australian Decimal Stamp Flaws (ACSC listed or not)

A little story...

My dad had absolutely no interest in stamps or coins. My views weren't far behind (of no interest).

I came home one day (about a fortnight after I bought my first block of stamps from the post office (4 x 18c) and announced that the block was in the window of the stamp shop at the Plaza (remember when there were stamp shops everywhere) for $15 (still $15 if I'm not mistaken).

Unkwnown to me until I heard dad complaining, he had bought a sheet (later).

He only had to look at mine to see it was top right corner block.

He complained he had bought a whole sheet and I ..... and he didn't have it.

He never showed me the sheet.

He passed away and the rest of the family just threw all the stamps in a soft-sided bag (not-gator, I'm sorry I can't think of the name of the type of bag, lets say it is a full curve in shape from one side of base to the other, with a zip - hard base). What I'm saying is they paid no attention to likely damage to the stamps (I had mentioned that this particular era were worth nothing, dealers would give you half face). So they just gave them to me. Luckily, no damage.

Yes, a lot of worthless stamps.

But dad should've let me see.

Where he searched a sheet for the flaw, I looked at one stamp on reciept. Yep, it was there.

Wish I could've told him.

Since then, a number of flaws have been found on his sheets.

Bless him.

His view was all financial and, though I do take that into account, it means little in the comparison to the collection I am trying to put together.

The death of my thread is imminent.

There will be a posting thread for ACSC decimal varieties that will precede inclusion in the wiki.

My thread served a purpose and I will continue until such time as the pre-wiki thread opens up.

Not everyone reads Wikis. Keep it up. :)

I see lots (100s) of UNDER CONSTRUCTION posts there with no images.

Those 1969 Fight pix etc above ARE adding to the visual data base.

There are quite a few stages of ''retouched car'' on that 1969 Flight series. In some cases the car is virtally white.

If you use a $100 Canon Lide scanner as most here do -

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16006&p=6256467


and scan at 1500 or 2000 you will get this clarity

And not this ''clarity''!

That is just blowing up a fuzzy pixillated scan, to show even bigger pixellations!

Well, my bad, I had a scanner go to Neverscanland and when I put the alternative scanner on I forgot to go to preferences.

Thanks for the subtle hint ;)

Yes this scanning clarity is simple to get - no Microscopes needed - from a superb 'Doctor Blade' strip I found in the rubble of my desk today!

And when talking early decimals we must show the OFFSETS.


Added this to stock today - Australia 1967 5c QE2 Superb, ultra strong GUM OFFSET.

ACSC 444c, $A75 – in the 15 year old Cat – stating 2 sheets of strong offset were discovered. Cat $100-$150 or more easily now, for the really deep ones.

Strongest one I have seen.

The most striking gum offset in the history of Australian stamps, for$A60 - just HALF what the current PO Annual Book costs - insane.

Has a thread been created specifically for posting images to be subsequently transferred to the 1966-75 wiki yet? Or will this thread get used as the staging post for pictures?

I will be happy to supply scans of a good number of the listed varieties, done to high resolution with a Canon Lide - none of the pixellated stuff as shown above (nothing personal, but those scans are not much help!).

In the mean time, there are a few scans here that can be used:

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=60072

One personal opinion on the Wiki: (A sterling effort by Gutters as always, by the way, many thanks for the hours he puts in).

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=91733

I think the repeated "normal" images are over the top, and a distraction. For example, in my opinion, only one 1c Brown, at the start of all the 1c Brown varieties, would be ample.
Always on the lookout for Australian pre decimal First Day Covers.

(A sterling effort by Gutters as always, by the way, many thanks for the hours he puts in).
I was going to leave my reply as above but as I expect further would be said to my post, I feel compelled to add the following.

The way I read the context of the above lines, you did make it personal.

. You've not posted on this thread before.

. Is it common practice to use subtle derision (for whatever reason) rather than constructive criticism along the way?

. Prior to moving to another scanner I was using a Canon Lide 400 (I must go back and see how set on 'high' resulted in such pixelation). This is the wonderful scanner you are alluding to?

. I reverted to a Canon Lide 300 and in my concern over whether I could produce images I forgot to go to settings.

. The images are better than provided in ACSC.

. What stopped you from posting and being helpful to others?

. I believe, as their only reference, many guests have found this thread of great help.

. A number of members (I believe well learned, especially in comparison to me) view the thread and I don't think it's just to have a laugh.

. You regale GUTTERS for the wiki he is putting together, which not to take away from the effort, you or I given a template and required information AND the time could do such a thing. I have, as you can see from the beginning of this thread, gone from zero format to something more readable. It has been a learning experience for me. And yet, I don't deserve the slightest comment in regard to my effort.

. Better served to congratulate GUTTERS on his threads by posting on his 'staging' thread, why here?

. I wonder how many people are put off the idea of posting because of the reply they may receive? A good advertisement for StampBoards?

Where it started:
I've started having a look at my Australian decimal stamps and pulling out those that have a flaw listed in ACSC (or not) and thought I may as well share the journey.
I found more varieties than I expected and it evolved from a 'journey' to a rather notable posting of many varieties.

. Until this thread you would be hard put to find one with this many Aus decimal varieties in one place, again very helpful.

. Why actually make the comments if not to deride. It served absolutely no purpose what-so-ever other than, and certainly not constructive. Again, I question myself "Why Post?"

But to finish,

Thanks for expressing that such an amateur could provide a not-so-sterling-effort in attempting to provide 6 pages of, well, reasonable stuff and all the time it took him. Hopefully, if he continues in his endeavours to post he will learn from previous experience (or stay in his place). In regard to his effort,

One of the worst images in ACSC, try telling from their image where the flaw is.
This was my take (10c 1974 Christmas, from the information provided you have no idea where to look - 680e: Retouch to shading on stone wall):

GUTTERS,

I am confused,

LP 3/1 (543d) is "Retouch on back of technician's neck" while
RP 3/2 is "Weakness in brown at lower left" (543e),
"retouched" (543ea).

Which is it you are referring to?

The ACSC pix are what - 20 years back, so we have all moved ahead by light years in the kit we all own! :D

We all own Canon Lides, so superb scans from EVERY model are readily possible - just read the instruction guide, and use our practice thread. :mrgreen:

Agree re GUTTERS thread, 20 pix of a normal 1966 1c brown etc is pointless and confusing. :lol:

The rest of the 2000 posts have no images yet, so no big deal.

I'm no help GUTTERS, I haven't got to this stamp yet as I don't look forward to that 'brown' area, I can't tell from your image.

Better eyes than mine are needed.

Mind, I do know I have this oddity

Now we throw this in

Cylinder Used: The printing cylinders are 100-on, comprising left and right
panes of 50, each 10 horizontal rows of 5. Four cylinders were manufactured,
representing one for each colour. The black cylinder has two vertical defacing
lines in the central gutter. Autotron bars are located in the top selvedge, above
fustredfafrov%RE#R#£3g?!ae€c
the central gutter. The panes are serially numbered in black in the left selvedge
opposite No. 7/1 of the left pane, and in the gutter opposite No. 7/1 of the right pane. Issued to post offices in sheets of 100.

The above reads as only two panes left and right

Yet below seem to say different

za. Sheet number block of 8 - left pane-
zb. Sheet number block of 8 - lower pane - above upper line
zc. Sheet number block of 8 - lower pane - below upper line

Haha, I put it down to typo's.

Not the first I've seen in the ACSC, they make mistakes.

(d, e, f: pictures e, f, g)

And so-on.

Mind you this looks like a complete stuff-up!

No, M. C. Escher put the sheet together :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyone have an idea on GUTTERS' stamp :?:

I may have put this thread together but I am still a Learner :ugeek:
As stated at the start..... this is a journey 8-)

Where are the opinions of those that have knowledge, expertise, experience :?
I'm still working on all three :cry: :arrow:

(unfortunately, not mine)
If that's Dumbo, he should sue!
