Any value to my thinned and defective Aust 1d Red KGV?

Post by Charutha »

Hello,

Can someone comment about this stamp? I'm not sure whether it is worth anything or not 🤔

what I noticed in this stamp is side perforations of left side of the stamp and B mark which I have circled 🤔

Stained (rust?), thin (holed?), missing perfs (silverfish?)

Watermark is right way up, so its just "a very poor example, of a very common stamp".

Personally, I'd shred it .... its "far too poor" even for a modelling box.

1917 postmark? I'd make sure I knew what shade it is before I binned it.

And is that postmark Mandiga or Nerriga or Pilliga? I don't have any of the three in my collection, even as a fragment like that. (Looks likely to be Pilliga?)

Our conversation topics are really specific because we have many thousands of topics on the site.

So now you've asked a question about an Indian stamp in a topic about Australian penny reds. It needs to go into a discussion of Indian stamps, or into a new topic. Definitely not here.

I might not ask about the Indian stamp here, if the moderator didn't change the topic. I just asked a question in a given forum and what have you done? Even if I created a new topic another moderator might change that topic as well? So what's the point?

The point is... ask a specific question in the title so that those with the knowledge of that particular stamp will see and respond. We don't know what you're thinking, half the time we don't know what new members are actually asking with vague questions.

If the question is too general then those that might have an answer for you, may not even bother to look beyond the title. And if you're going to call a moderator a lunatic, then that's not appreciated.

Members are hear to help, not read minds.

A new member making a bold statement that a Moderator is a lunatic will not win you much support. You should rethink your approach on how to ask for assistance on the board!

A Moderator changed the title of your thread because it was not very descriptive. I would strongly recommend reading the Rules for posting on the board. Found at this link:

As said above, make a descriptive thread title and it will not be edited.

I am locking this for the time being!
