S.Aust 1904 1/- Long Tom “DOUBLE PRINT OF VALUE” $A100
A rare stamp. I’ve seen it offered only once before.
Many do not realise that the "ONE SHILLING" denomination was printed in 2 passes of the press.
One pass through the press to do the value tablet, and the other pass for rest of design, that was common to all values.
I recently sold this month, the 1/- for $A1,100 - shown below, with the value plug being printed in a different colour. As you can see, “ONE SHILLING” was printed in a separate operation, in red-brown/orange, not the same colour pale browns that the rest of the issue was done in.
Unique in Australian stamps. This was a small part of the initial print, and was quickly detected, and corrected to pale brown for all the colour. SG 275c.
This Double Print came from the same superb collection.
Remember this stamp was first issued in 1904, so is clearly an AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH stamp, as all stamps first issued after January 1901 Federation must be.
Double lettering of SHILLING as you can clearly see.
$A100 plus $A3 Global Post
Call it - "SA 1/- : Stock 416BL " - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlensOrder And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again.
All payment details etc are on: http://tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE VFU franking is used whenever possible, when I mail (depending on how busy PO counter is!) and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - http://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - http://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet.
Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website http://glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale, in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals. And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to ozstamps at g mail dot com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: http://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use any cards - and Amex is accepted too or PayPal in ANY currency. .
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - http://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and http://tinyurl.com/StampDeals Unless noted by me, all stampboards lots priced *$A100 and under* are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at *YOUR* total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1,000s of my transactions here for 15 years have been delivered safely by normal post.
Orders over $100 are ALWAYS sent Registered (but Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Request this on order form if you require it, under $A100. Letter size FOREIGN sendings gobally are usually only $4 untracked. Smallish large packet items FOREIGN up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in pre-paid Registered envelopes cost $17 total, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees!
Only *YOU* know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only *YOU* know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy, and leave packets or large letters on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes, or mailed to your work address etc, are FAR safer, if you are not home during day. If un-registered mail goes missing - sorry, your issue entirely.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $A100 covered locally, or $3 per $A100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it automatically, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - http://tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it out 3 weeks back, and ‘you now need to cancel your ticket, with no nasty penalty please’, and see how you get on with THAT one!
As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue. For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
