My old catalogue shows a 75c with perf 12x11

re: New South wales #75, perf.11.

This is where the Stanley Gibbons catalog is much preferred to Scott for British stamps.

SG #241 is the catalog number for Scott #75, and it truly does not exist in perf 11.

SG 241 (Scott 75)
1885-1886 watermarked NSW (skinny S)
... perf 10
... perf 12
... perf 12x11
... perf 12x10

However, there is a later issue which is found in perf 11. I cannot find the equivalent Scott catalog number for these stamps.

SG 274-278
1894-1904 watermarked NSW (wide S)
... perf 10
... perf 12
... perf 11
... perf 12x11

So if your copy is perf 11, it must be from the 1894-1904 issue.

Hope this is of help.

Scott does list the 10sh stamp perfed 11 on white paper as Scott New South Wales #76c.

Very good Michael....

Scott 76, b, c and d must be the ones listed in SG as #274-278.

Cheers,
Terry.

Terry, your earlier reply shows the nightmare sometimes encountered trying to cross-reference catalog numbers from different catalog sets. Look at this example where Gibbons has major catalog numbers close to 300 up to the stamp in question from New South Wales, while Scott has just 76!

Adding to the fun is that Gibbons often has a unique number for a stamp that is listed in Scott as a variety (with a letter). Example: SG 187 is listed as 45.b in Scott.

edit: Pardon, I see Terry already illustrated that point.

re: New South wales #75, perf.11.

Hey, all! thanks for the help. I must be going blind, I looked right over #76. must be 76c, also noticed #108B, could have been 108Bc but postmark is 1898. Anyway, including pic.
don't know about the mauve though, looks more rose or bright rose to me.
Ok 1 so here's the story , was listed on Ebay as #73,2011 cv. of $400.00; however, overprint is dark blue and on white paper. I got it for $15.00. still happy with it as is.
w/ 2011 cv. of $160.00.Image Not FoundHappy
