ACSC Platypus 9d Sepia Multiple Crown and CofA 14 x 14.75

I'm not sure if this is damage to the stamp. At 4800dpi, the area appears to be whiter than surrounds. Can't see anything significant when viewing the back of the stamp when held up to a lamp. Comments welcome.

Thanks for the contributions. I'd like to make a couple of clarifications on the scope of this thread.

1. The thread is entitled "KGVI Definitives Plate Varieties". This refers to scratches, colour flaws, re-entries, re-cuts, weak entries etc - anything that would be specific to a particular stamp on a sheet. The reason for starting the thread was the variable quality of illustrations currently available
It is not intended to illustrate different gutter widths, marginal perforation variants, imprint types (cracked imprints excepted) etc which require no further illustration.

2. It is only intended to illlustrate flaws which are currently listed in the ACSC. If you look on Page 1 of the thread you will see that every single listed flaw is already described & allocated a place for the relevant image. You may have found other marks, lines, dots, scratches etc, but if they're not on the existing list of known, catalogued & plated constant flaws, they're outside the scope of the thread.

Cheers
Chris

Apologies.

Is there a topic that shows Errors, Flaws, Varieties that are not listed in ACSC?

If not, should one be started?

If yes, can Mods please move my non-topic postings to it?

Thanks in advance.

No need to apologise, I should have been clearer at the start.

No other thread exists for unlisted flaws that I'm aware of.

Here is a nice used copy of the "Long wing on plane" variety I just found at a stamp show. It is listed in the ACSC.

I really like this variety.

Here is one that is not listed in SG or ACSC.

SG#147 2d

It appears as a plate variety (not a scratch, etc). I'll call it the "Broken Pole" until someone tells me otherwise. :)
There is something similar in Canadian stamps called the "Missing Spire".

Any thoughts? Has anyone else seen this one?

It is a striking and easily spotted constant variety from one printing of a booklet plate. ACSC $250 used.

In 35 years of looking for it I have found just ONE (1) !!!

I emailed the SG Editor yesterday suggesting it be added. He agrees it is a striking variety and says he has one too! He advises it will for sure be in the next SG after the current Part #1 as "Australia" being 'A' is always first to be finalised.

Great news Glen, I agree it should be listed since it is constant and so easy to spot (and interesting IMO).

That's the advantage of going to a show in Canada. Probably sat in the dealer's stock for some time before I came along. :D

Hi Guys,

Is this site still current? If so I would like to contribute. I see that many of the scans have disappeared over time.

I enjoy going through old hoards and collecting variations in the pre-decimal era. It is the thrill of the chase. I find the black and white descriptions in the catalogues are a little difficult to define in some instances and scans in these Wiki's are a very useful tool to verify the variations.

Kind regards

Greg

Hi

I have just received a full pane of the ½d kangaroo and was trying to establish its position. I believe that the attached stamp is the named "dilly bag" flaw and I would like confirmation/clarification of that fact - it does not appear as obvious as the scan at the start of this thread.

I can confirm that that it is row 7 stamp 1 and if I read the information at the start of this thread it is sheet D.

As there are some other possible flaws that I can see that are not listed in the early part of this thread, and could be added, I would like some direction as to how I should write them up.

Thank you
David

This is the "Dilly Bag" on the ½d roo. Part of yours can be seen under the "A" of JAPAN.

There is definitely a few other varieties on your stamp.

Hi everyone,
Found these two sitting in an album at the bottom of a box, both MNH.
Stamp 1 being a white face KGV1.
Image

Stamp 2 being a retouch under the word POSTAGE going pretty much all the way across it, seems to be abit lighter on the left side.

Thanks Rob, I've noticed after I posted them on here that there is a difference between the bottom of the right chain looking embroidery straight above T of postage and the V of the portrait shield around King George, someone may be able to help me with this flaw please.

Stamp 2 (ACSC 230f) Page 6/152, note 9. The ACSC mentions that the “line prolonged under ‘AGE’” is not a constant plate flaw. It was found on the lower rows of many sheets and also in booklet stamps, and is the result of the action of the impression roller over an area of the rolled-in impressions in which the depth of engraving was too deep to hold the ink.

I'm sorry I cannot find any explanation concerning the more recent flaw.
