Hi to all

How do you distinguish the medal flaw, they all look the same to me.
this one was in a collection I purchased.
It has written on the back in pencil
185 (SG I am assuming) 1937-49 14 x 15

Unfortunately, your stamp does not have a medal flaw, the image below shows what a medal flaw looks like. In the ACSC it is 189e and is valued at $30 used.

Hi Rob

Thanks for that
It is so hard to distinguish them.

Hi Rob,

Still confused, these scans all are slightly different, so are any of these the medal flaw?

Showing is a normal 1941 3d mauve, it shows the metallic shine to the medal in question. The stamps you have, though they show variations of the medal, none have the "medallion flaw".
