Has anyone seen a KGV 1p green, wmk 9, perf 14 in die II? Scott doesn't list this option, but I have a die II of this issue. Anything listed in SG?

re: King George V

Bouncing between my catalogs, your riddle would make much more sense if the stamp was watermark 203 (small crowns and multiple A) and it were perf 13 1/2 by 12 1/2. In which case it would be SG 95b. printed June 1928, and it would be die II.

Another clue:
A quote from the ACSC catalogue states, "Die II and other Left Plate flaws are only found perf 13 1/2 X 12 1/2."

There appears to be no Scott equivalent. Scott only lists die 1, and die 1a)
Hopefully someone will shed more light on this. But check the watermark and perf again? If you were right on the watermark and perf, I am back to ground zero. Happy

Though my next question would be to make doubly sure it is die II and not die I. Good Luck.

Cheers!

Scans of the stamp front and back would help. As Winedrinker says the stamp you describe is not known. There were no printings in green from the plate with the Die 2 until small multiple watermark.

Yes, a scan of the stamp, front and back would be a good idea.

re: King George V

Thanks guys. I'll do my best this week. I might surely have missed it and it's obvious to others that it's die I.
