** PLEASE NOTE: To keep this forum manageable you may post additions to any thread in the forum however - the thread leader or a Forum Admin may then add your information to the initial post and DELETE your post. In this thread, posts in the correct format may be kept, but comment posts will be edited as above.


This thread is a WIKI for
Australian Kangaroo And Map 1d stamp
faults and flaws.
Listed by panes.


The aim of this thread is to have an online visual catalogue for the faults and flaws of the 1d red Kangaroo And Map stamps of Australia.

To do this we require your input. :mrgreen:

If you have an example of a fault that you can post, with the pane number and the position on that pane.

Then just post it at the bottom of this thread.

And we will do the rest.


YOUR SCANS
Please if possible scan your stamps at 1200 dpi and then place them in your photobucket account at the 15-inch screen setting.

If this cannot be done, place your scan anyway it will hold it place on the thread until another 1200dpi scan comes along.

The 1200 dpi setting gives a good size picture, as you will see below.

Trim the scan, a little bit of black background is OK but we don't want a half-inch border around it, again look at the scans below.

A bit of pride in the scan of your stamp will keep it here for as long as the board stays running. The better scan will always be on display.

Wiki - Australian 1d Kangaroo And Map Stamps

Post by PhilipAdams »

The definitive study of the 1d Red Kangaroo issue is 1d Red Kangaroo and Map Series: The First Stamp of the Commonwealth of Australia, written by David Adams, Bill Bell and Greg Pope, and published in September 2004.

The 2004 book identified 100 Unlocated Constant Varieties (UCVs), which are flaws or varieties where more than two identical clichés have been found to exist, but which have not been plated. Subsequently some of these UCVs have been plated (see, for example, http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4131&start=3500#p4553050), and probably others identified.

David Adams has continued his research and has uncovered 25 additional UCVs. He has kindly allowed images and short-descriptions to be displayed on StampBoards. These are being progressively posted below.

To me, some of the flaws and/or descriptions are unclear, but they “are what they are”, and I remain grateful to David for allowing them to be posted.

To be consistent with the original 2004 book the new UCVs are labelled UCV101 to UCV125.

I see now that you are not showing images of all the stamps like in KGV thread..as i understand it we only scan the flaws themselves.?

Therefore, here's a scan (1200) of flaw Plate B L40.."I west of Tasmania"... Philip Adams reckons may be a third state - it may be useful as a result.

Some key facts about the 1d Red Kangaroo
  • Printed by J.B. Cooke on First Watermark paper only.

    Date of issue was 2 January 1913 in Sydney and 4 January 1913 in Melbourne.

    Replaced by the 1d red King George V stamp on 17 July 1914. The Australian Commonwealth Specialists’
    Catalogue (ACSC) notes that the 1d red King George V engraved stamp of December 1913 "barely interrupted
    production of the 1d Kangaroo".

    The stamp was used for: (1) Standard postage within Australia and the British Empire; (2) Commercial papers
    within Australia and the British Empire; and (3) magazines to foreign (i.e., non Empire) countries.

    Originally printed in a four-plate configuration, with each plate having 120 subjects or clichés on two panes (left and right).
    After November 1913 the stamp was printed in a two plate configuration of 240 stamps which were cut into sheets of 120.

    The official colour of the stamp is red, but the ACSC lists four shades: Red, Pale-red, Rose-red and Deep red.

    The plates are in the following die states:

    Plates A, B, C are all Die I
    Plates D, E, F are all Die II (including the substitutions at EL25, FL19 and FL20)
    Plates G, H, K are all Die IIA (including the substitution at GR55)

    Want to know a bit more about the three die states, then consult Section 2 of the ACSC “The Kangaroo and Map
    Series”, 1913-50. Want to know a lot more, then consult a specialised publication such as:
    G. N. Kellow “Kangaroos: The last Victorian Issues”, published by Richard C. Peck, 1985; and society journal articles
    such as the one reproduced here http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=53090.

    Plates, A, B, E, G and K are upper plates and do not have the printer’s monogram.
    Plates C, D, F and H are lower plates, with the printer’s CA monogram under L57 and JBC monogram under R58.

    The key study of the stamp is David Adams, Bill Bell and Greg Pope, “1d Red Kangaroo and Map Series:
    The first Stamp of the Commonwealth of Australia”, published by the three authors, 2003. Other useful references include:
    (a) The ACSC (of course); and (b) Major Dormer Legge, “The 1913 Penny Kangaroo of Australia”, published by Stanley Gibbons Publications Ltd, 1980.

Location Map


In describing the position of flaws, frequent reference is made to key locations on the Australia map. A good example is "Shading below Halifax Bay: 0.5 mm break in line 6".

The map blows shows the locations (taken directly from Adams, Bell and Pope, page 57).

Upper Plate A

Adams, Bell and Pope note the following regarding Plate A.

Plate A is composed of Die I clichés and was printed along with Plates B, C and D in a 480-on configuration. Plate A was retired in January 1913 after only a very short life.

Consequently, there are few varieties and the material is in short supply. It is an unsolved mystery as to why Plate A was retired so early. Whatever the answer, Cooke (the government printer) cut the plate up for use as additional postal stantinery electrotypes.

The diagram below shows the positions of individual clichés on a plate of 120 units. The plate comprises left and right panes divided by a central gutter. The positions of the watermarks (POSTAGE, etc.) shown on the diagram are reasonably accurate. Being an upper plate Plate A does not have printer monograms.

Clichés shaded have no known constant printing flaws. Clichés without shading have constant printing flaws, with some flaws having more than one state. The numbering of stamps is conventional.

Constant varieties identified in the Australian Commonwealth Specialist Catalogue (2017) (ACSC) are indicated by the lettering used in the Catalogue. Thus, for example, the cliché at position 1L1 has the letter d, meaning that this is the position of the ACSC-listed flaw 2(A)d. Note that the ACSC identifiers start at d and run to h.

The positions of constant flaws and their descriptions come from the following sources:

Adams, D., B. Bell, G. Pope (2004), 1d Red Kangaroo and Map Series, published by the authorss.

Kellow, G.N. (ed.) (2017), The Australian Commonwealth Specialists’ Catalogue: Kangaroos, Brusden-White.

AL23
Small notch on inner side of left frame level with foot of first A of AUSTRALIA


Note, as pointed out by rsellens, the image below is not of AL23. It is of BL50. The position of the LH notch is the same on both stamps (hence I'll keep the image below), but there is a secondary marker on BL40 which is not on AL23. That secondary marker can be seen on the stamp below: "S of AUSTRALIA: break in top outline, 5.5mm from left frame"
