EL25
Extra island - two Tasmanias - ACSC 3(E)d,da,db


Adams, Bell and Pope identify two pre-substitution states and one substituted cliché at this position.

The first pre-substitution state shows wide breaks in three shading lines above first N of PENNY, with a "semi-circular colour line framing the upper half of the flaw". This is stamp 1 below.

The second pre-substitution state shows wide breaks in lines 1 to 5. This is stamp 2 below

The substituted cliché (Stamp 3) has two flaws:

"(a) Left frame: 0.5mm V shaped notch on outer side starting 5.25mm up from bottom frame.
(b) Tasmania and shading above: break in north coast and minute break in line 2, both 4.75mm from right frame."

This last characteristic is not always present.

The ACSC lists two pre-substitution states. The second (3(E)da) is distinguished from the first by having an "additional break in the bottom frame". This break is very rare. David Adams has not seen a copy and believes that only 2 or 3 examples exist. David comments, "What caused the break in the lower frame is not know. It is suggested that at this point in time the printer felt that something had to be done about the flaws and finally substituted the cliché."

EL29
Line of disturbance above and below I of AUSTRALIA


This is the very lengthy explanation from Adams, Bell and Pope.

"I of AUSTRALIA and shading above and below: in its final form shows a dent in upper frame, 3.25mm from right frame (inconstant), breaks in upper inner frame and line 1 down, notch on inner side of base of I and breaks in lines 2 to 12 below 1, 3.75mm from right frame. Earlier printings show primarily the breaks in lines 2 and 3 and the notch on inner side of base of I"

PHEW!

This is one of the iconic flaws on Plate E. It comes in three states.

First state (Stamp 1 below)

Second state (Stamp 2 below)
"(a) As before.
(b) Bottom frame: shallow dent on upper side, 4.5mm to 5.0mm from left frame."

Third state (Stamp 3 below)
"(a) and (b) As before.

Numerous shading breaks between the South Australia coast and value circle


A description that could only come from ABP.

Three states.

"First state
(a) Shading above EN of PENNY: almost 0.5mm breaks in lines 8 and 9, starting 7.5mm from right frame. Not in early printings.
Second state
(a) As before.
(b) Shading near and mainly above value circle: break in shading line one below top of value circle at right and line two below does not always touch value circle completely at 8.5mm from left frame. A scratch then continues above circle in a slightly curved or crescent shaped form in shading line six above. Sometimes not all lines are broken but weakness is usually evident. There is also evidence of a possible retouch at 1 o'clock on the value circle. Not in early printings.
Third state
(a) As before.
(b) As before: except there is now a break in the value circle at 1 o'clock and no evidence of a retouch.
(c) A second separate scratch is now approximately 0.5mm to the right of (b) almost lying parallel and breaking a maximum of five shading lines. Not in early printings"

Phew

Cracked cliché - ACSC 3(E)i


According to ABP comes in two states.

"First state
(a) Shading below first A of AUSTRALIA: break in inner frame at line 18 below and the left end of line 18 does not reach the inner frame; also there is a break in line 17 below, 0.75mm from left frame.
Second state
(a) As above.
(b) Crack below AUS of AUSTRALIA: the first 7 lines below extend from left inner frame to P of POSTAGE. The next 8 lines below extend from inner frame to 5.0mm from left frame tapering down to 3.0mm from left frame. The crack at line 16 below is 1.0mm from the left frame. The heavy inking above the crack indicates that the top left edge of the cliché has been raised slightly above the remainder of the cliché."

Lower Plate F

Plate F, like plates D and E, is composed of Die II clichés. It was in commission for a relatively long time between February1913 and February 1914.

Plate F was paired to the upper plate E.

Plate F clichés are relatively late-stage Die II clichés, and hence have breaks in the first shading lines above and below N of ONE. The only exceptions are for the substitution FL19 and FL20 which do not have those breaks and are thought to come come from the cut-up plate D.

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 a lower plate, Plate F has printer monograms (not shown on the diagram).
.
.
Plate F.jpg
.
.
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 L20 has the letter d, meaning that this is the position of the ACSC-listed flaw 3(E)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 authors.

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

Sluman, J (1992), The 1913 Penny Kangaroo Flaw List, published by the author.
