Oceania/Australia : Little e on Australian stamp

11 Jan 2019
Image Not Found
Could someone please give me some information with the E in Penny as the middle line is alot alot smaller where the other letters are alot fatter. I know the stamp isn't worth anything but when you look at the stamp you notice there isn't a middle line with the E until you make the E bigger as I did above.

Hi Pooh

The stamp you have was issued in 1901, printing in those days were quite primitive and many varieties can be found on Queen Victorian stamps.

In your case, the stamp you have seem to have breaks in the shading lines causing the thinness of the central bar.

It is a limited edition, and there maybe copies still available through the following.


They published many of the specialized catalogues dealing with Australian stamps. their website is


Hope this is helpful
