In the 1d wiki, 3R55 is represented by state 2 only, which is with the "emu foot frame flaw", thus:

KGV 1d 3R55 flaw
KGV 1d 3R55 flaw


There doesn't appear to be an image of state three with that flaw corrected.
Here is an image to add, taken from a 1929 imprint block.
KGV 1d 3R55 flaw corrected
KGV 1d 3R55 flaw corrected


Note the apparent additional transient flaw enlarging the emu's claw.

I'm not an expert in this issue, but was told this is Scott 28, ACSC 96, and probably 12A R21. For your use.

Would like to know if 8R52 has a corresponding ACSC number?

Although I don't know which nomination you were after I had a look at all nominations and the answer is no

Hi Lofty1702

8R52 only refers to the position of the cliche on no particular plate 8.

There are several values where 8 or more plates were used and your initial query could refer to any of them.

The stamp shown in you second post limits the possibilities to three watermarks, one of which was issued with two different watermarks.

So, if you want an ACSC number you need to distinguish which option it is and tell us that. Given that the stamp is identified as 128 8R52 in the image, that information should be readily available in your catalogue.

Or otherwise you could provide an image of the rear of the stamp.

Two other things.
This query should be in the "KGV help from the experts" thread rather than the wiki thread.

If you provide images with a black or very dark background it's easier to see details.

Your stamp looks to have somewhat strange perfs on the right hand side but the clarity is not there.

I've never seen a postally used proof state. How is that even possible?

Greg, my mistake typing this - thanks for noting it - the 'proof state' would be before the above progress of these flaws/compartment marks.
My stamp above is of course a 'late state'.

I was recently looking at some old reports about OS Stamps in Trove and came across this article:

Sunday Times (Perth, WA : 1902 - 1954) Sun 9 Jul 1933
Page 14 The Stamp Collector

As it happens I have a copy of 109(OS)8R5.

Yeah I missed that. But this is 8R5 I believe. It's from a top right block of 6.

Later today I'll post the rest of the block to assist confirmation.
