Hi to all

Here is a scan of one of the many varieties that I have from the George V era.


The word ONE is very interesting.
There are other faults also on this stamp, particularly on the right hand value shield

Being a stamp "nincompoop" but progressing quickly to stamp "numbskull" what are the issues with the value shield? I have this stamp.

At the bottom of the letter N is an apparent plate error represented by the white area that is not part of the character.

Also the N is fully enclosed at the base, make it look like part of a badly formed fgure of eight.

tehehehehe just to confirm, my last post was incorrect. I am still a nincompoop. I thought the value shield referred to the lines around the "1"! So although i have the stamp, I dont have one with the mucked up "N". Boy or boy do any of you guys still have normal sight?hahahahhahaha Amazing.
Cheers!

From the KGV Australian Commonwealth Specialists Catalogue (ACSC), this constant flaw is from Plate 4, VIII/60, Run "N" of "ONE".

The catalogue value depends on the watermark and perforations.
