Identifying the Australia KGV 2d Die 2 Imprint Plates

Post by satsuma »

Stamps from this die were only printed by Ash and perforated 13½.
There were only 2 plates.

2d Red Brown (ACSC 99)

Plate 1 utilised the Ash ‘N’ over ‘N’ imprint with part of the marginal line thinned to allow its insertion. There are two almost vertical scratches near the bottom of the right wattles on 1L60.

Both types of imprint were used on both plates but the marginal line characteristics are sufficient to distinguish between them.
