Hi Horamakhet

The collection has a few shades and varieties to go before I complete the 3d blues, the 190d was the hardest to obtain, it’s quite rare and very seldom seen on the market. It’s good to know that the information and images will help in identifying the 3d KGVI blue stamps.

The numbers are from the ACSC catalogue.

Hi Horamakhet

Nearly all my stamps are on StampSmarter, if you want the stamp to be enlarged just click on the stamp, it will give better detail of the stamp you want to know about. I'm still adding to it.

Here is a link to my stamps.

Hi Horamakhet

I changed 231c to 231a, made a mistake with the list. The second last stamp is thin paper.

Just when I think my Australia collection is not too shabby, Rob posts a picture of 18 stamps I failed to take note of -- of one design and issue. Just goes to show you the depths one can go in collecting stamps. Great work Rob!

Hi Wine

Wait till you see the 1959 QEII blue stamps, there will be cracked plates, different paper types, different shades, imperforations and other varieties. It will be ready in the New Year as I am currently waiting on some of the stamps arriving in a few weeks.

I'm glad you liked the stamps, I can assure you the 5d blues is going to be very interesting to say the least.

Hi Rob

It is great to be able to see such an impressive collection, and not only that it is a remarkable reference source to refer to

hi Horamakhet

It's good to know that my displays are used as references, I focus on obtaining the complete series of stamps mentioned in the ACSC as well as adding major varieties, and at every possible moment collect my favourite stamp - Specimens (they are very underrated).

Every now and then I'll focus on certain Victorian and George V issues and Edward VII (a very small collection of the latter as there are only two types printed the £1 & $2 and the £1 & £2 punctured O.S.

Hi Rob

I agree about specimen stamps.

Also I have noticed, the price of good examples is starting to creep up dramatically.


I am waiting for a nice set of the five shilling to two pound, coat of arms to turn up, but usually the two pound is missing, even then the broken sets are very hard to find.

Regards

Horamakhet

Hi Horamakhet

True, The price of a good example of the Coat-of-Arms are gradually rising, the collection I have took a few years to collect and cost me just over $9,000.

There is still about 9 to go, not counting various types of proof, it's a project that most probably will take the remainder of my life to partially realise, as some of the remainder may never be seen as some collectors will never release them onto the market, just like my very thin £2 Coat-of-Arms with roller flaw, there is only 2 in existence, the first is well centred and the other (which I saw sell at Status International Auctions recently was off-centred (I would have bought it if I had known earlier, it was bought a day before I was notified of its sale); I have the first one.

I will upload what I have at the moment, the collection involves various shades (ACSC listed and unlisted), thin papers, roller flaws and paper types.

I can give you the address of someone I know who sells quite nice Coat-of-Arms Specimens.

Rob
