Okay, two spaces... centre images. All on board (I hope )GA wrote:
TWO SPACES between text and first attachment ALWAYS, and CENTRE all images as clearly shown in the tutorial I spent 30 mins typing.
Damn straight! The new way of inserting images is a breeze, now I just have to work on the nuances.
Philip Adams, you may appreciateAll bought as new issues at the time when constant varieties were written up in the magazines at the time
It appears I have to purchase McCleary!PhilipAdams wrote: ↑21 Jul 2020 09:59On matters "small", I want emphasise that none of the varieties I identify are new discoveries.
When I returned to stamp collecting I thought that I would make my mark with Decimal varieties, so I started to buy up sheets and blocks with the hope of discovering plated constant varieties.
Too difficult! I then discovered the beauty of pre-decimals and particularly the Kangaroos and off I went to explore those areas.
For a break, I occasionally return to the decimals. I bought the three-volume ACSC decimal catalogue and most importantly, I discovered David McCleary's notes on Australian Decimal Varieties.
Now, armed with the ACSC and McCleary books and with past assistance from Bryan Young (dec.), the consulting editor of the ACSC decimals, I can identify where many recuts, etc., should be located - even though half the time I cannot see anything!
All the background shading appeared 'whiter' than all the other stamps I had out and they stood out, so in answering "where" you've actually answered me. If nothing really stood out for you then I'm just seeing things (eyes can go crazy looking at these little brown pieces of paper).Where exactly do you think there are retouches? What is special about the base of the first A?
Thanks.On a more positive note, I really like the type of material you are posting. Just provide a bit more detail!

The above portion of the 10c pane includes one ACSC listed variety and includes others the original owner placed.
Thanks Philip and yes I'm actually a bit breathless (more eye strain and a bit worn out).PhilipAdams wrote: ↑05 Aug 2020 07:12castores,
The pace at which you are presenting this material is leaving me breathless!
Sorry, but I don't have answers to many of the question that are interwoven with the images.
I will say, though, that a couple of the "plate flaws" look more like surface abrasions.

Might be good to have a break.
Can I suggest that when you do get back to these, that you consider putting the stamps in some sort of order - by date or ACSC number, for example.
I find it difficult to give constructive feedback when birds are followed by QE2s, are followed by a commemorative or two, etc.
I like that you have settled on a given format for your headings.
Mine too !!!
