I recently acquired an accumulation of penny reds, thousands of which are purportedly new to philately. One thing I hope to do with them is some work on "die states", by which I mean flaws which are common to entire plates. Have Australians written articles on this subject? I would like to know about them.
Also if anyone has a particular flaw they would like me to look for as I go through my new penny reds I will. One lot was picked over (and described so by the auctioneer) but has yielded seven BW varieties so far (including an HR58 which I would have thought hard to miss), as well as three inverted watermarks and dozens of Adams/Bell/Pope varieties. In three or four days I ought to be through the loose stuff and ready to open bundles, of which a couple of dozen look old. And then the unpicked stuff...
I'm completely ignorant about cancels but if there are some I should look for I will. I don't know about perfins either.

Clearly you have not read a single rule here -
Try #10 and #11 for starters, re lazy meaningless lower case 2 word headings, and no images -
Thread locked, so you can introduce yourself in Roll Call as required, and then follow the other SIMPLE rules.
