Now I don't know what these are called but I always thought they were 2 birds sitting on the sleeve of the man who is pointing but on this stamp you can't make out the birds. I only just found that out

Rob and the other men who have been helping me with these stamps, this stamp was found in the same bundle of stamps with Koala up the tree. I'm hoping anyone can help me with this stamp, I didn't do anything to it so any information would be good.

re: different errors on Captain Phillips NSW 150 Anniversary stamp

Hi Pooh

The ink flaw on the outstretched arm may have been caused by the doctor blade removing any access ink. Many varieties with colour flaws are the result of smudges, these types of smudges are not constant printing flaws, and are merely known as freaks, otherwords, more of a curiosity than of monetary value.

As the stamp is used and off cover (the envelope) soaking in water can fade the colour in various sections of the stamp. The full stop under the “d” does seem slightly larger, I cannot explain this abnormality, but it has to be of significantly noticed before it can be of monetary value.

Now comes that line, mostly all lines of that significance is cause by a cracked plate, and all cracked plates have a rarity status of scarce – very rare. But then it could be paper separation or a fine tear, but this cannot be determined unless there is a black background (it highlights the ends of the stamp), and that you also post the reverse of the same black backing.

The cancellation of the stamp also has a significant impact on the value of the stamp, for instance a mint unhinged “Pantaloon” on the market will cost $1,300, whereas, if it were used, the same stamp will cost $85.

Also, some stamps can cost more than mint unhinged, but these are quite rare. Now if the line on the 2d stamp is a cracked plate, it will still cost quite a bit even if it were used.

The 2d sesquicentennial is known to be plagued with varieties, and only a very limited number of these varieties and retouched varieties have monetary value.

Repost both back and front of the stamp on a black background and I can work from there.

Hi Pooh

Sorry I forgot where you are located. The image is now a good size, do you have anything that is not white, it doesn't have to be black, just anything dark, the white makes the bottom of the stamp invisible. If it's a paper separation or a tear it will show at the back, if it's a cracked plate or doctor blade variety it will show no damage to the paper.

I'm quite interested in that line.

Hi pooh

It's a fine superficial tear as the line goes over the cancellation rather than the cancellation going over the line, the tear then travels up through the "H" of "Phillips" there seems to be no visible damage at the rear of the stamp.
