Australia KGVI era Definitive Stamp Varieties - 1936-1952

Post by The Pom »

This thread is intended to complement existing catalogues by offering better quality scans than those currently available (and in some cases, flaws are not apparently illustrated in any form in print).

It is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to which stamps a certain flaw appeared on - e.g. all the different colour/perf/wmk/overprint etc variants in which a particular design was issued - one illustration covers all.

Thanks in advance

Chris

I paid over $3,000 for this piece last week, and it was a great item I thought.

1942-50 Definitives 2½d KGVI lower-left imprint block of 6 (3x2), the fourth unit Imperforate at Left & the first unit Partly Imperforate at Left, one central unit very lightly mounted otherwise unmounted. Unlisted in the ACSC.

Never recorded before, and one of the few KGVI stamps reported TOTALLY imperf at side.

I'd be inclined to say not.

As Chris suggested, it is not the Kooka breast flaw on R 10/2.

Below is what you are looking for.

ACSC 204n "Colour flaw in front of breast".

Chris...feel free to use in the Wiki.

Even harder to locate visually is the retouch.
