Hi everyone.

I have been asked to enter an in-house competition of the ACCC (Australian Commonwealth Collectors Club of NSW). My topic will be varieties and errors.

There are varieties I will soon be receiving that will make the presentation even more interesting.

The items have a status of rare to extremely rare, for instance, the 1/- 1935 ANZAC Proof which I uploaded not so long ago, and soon I'll be in possession of one of only 10 existing imperforated 1959 5d QEII.

It will take a few months to sort through my varieties and errors and choose which will hopefully be part of a winning entry.

When I complete the presentation I will upload the stamps prior to taking them to the club.

Here is the extremely rare imperforated 5d I will be picking up very soon.

Rob,

All the best in your competition. You got this. My guess is that you will win handily.

If I could offer a bit of constructive criticism. During the course of your presentation I might use "elusive" or "seldom seen" instead of "extremely rare".

Subtlety can actually be more effective.

Hi Ernie

Thanks, constructive criticism is always important as I have had such criticism in the past and found it to be a valuable learning experience, though not necessary for the previous post.

I was told I will be coming up against some tough competition and I may have a good chance of winning. I always use "seldom seen on the market" when it comes to the scarcity of the item and only use the words in the status scale such as "very rare" and "extremely rare" if it is listed on certification papers, such as in the case of the 1959 QE II 5d blue imperforate stamp, the status is on the Ceremuga certificate shown with the stamp.

It is the only extremely rare stamp I now have and hopefully will find another further down the track, it is an important no alternative rule that certain stamps on the status scale must be accompanied by a recognised certificate.

Hi Rob

Best of luck with the competition.

You never know what rare stamps are lurking out there waiting to be found.

Most of the rare stamp finds in history have been sheer luck.

I am always hoping

Regards

Hi Horamakhet

Thanks, I'll need it, the competition will be fierce and enjoyable, and the knowledge one gets out of a philatelic competition, I intend to bring out the big guns of varieties and errors.

I was invited to compete, I normally do not compete, but every-one at the club are very interested (intrigued more like it) as to the varieties I have.

Before the week-end I will be displaying a page from the presentation I am preparing for the June 2019 competition.

Actually getting some of my rarities was through sheer luck, there was one or two that were sold only a half-hour before I rang up (quite disappointing).
