re: GB KGV1 Inverted

Rich, I saw your earlier post, with a slightly different wording. I looked in my SG Commonwealth & British Empire catalogue and it doesn't even mention those numbered varieties. So where did you get the numbers from? The Great Britain Specialised? If so, is there no indication in the preamble?

Other than that, you may have to wait until someone with those catalogue details comes online.

Just one snippet that I found on another forum about inverted watermarks from booklets; the reference was to 'Wi' suffixes for these. I wouldn't take this as gospel by the way.

Sorry for being no further help.

Hi Rich, sorry, realised that I had not answered your question.
You will only be able to tell which booklet they come from if they are still in the original booklet or the whole pane has been used on cover.
Once they are out of the booklet they will be just stamps with inverted watermarks, probably why no price is given for used. Not having seen the booklets I presume they came perfed all around, so no selvedge edges to help identify them individually.
Seems the booklets in question are the 6d and 2/- ones. Further information may be in the specialised catalogue but I do not have this.

HI,

While reading though this thread what I could do is email you scans from my vol 5 King Edward VII to King George VI which clearly shows the source of each issue you can send me a direct e-mail on which I will by return send you the relevant info you require.
