Hi to all

I have nearly finished sorting all the Victorian state stamps into a stock book.

Of the half penny green, there are some many variations of shade, that in itself would be a long process putting them into colour shades.

These few stood out so I thought I would post them.

Starting from left to right.

The first is an off centred perforation, the second, well, is this fading, or colour stripping, the third, has a variety of a white patch on the T of Victoria and the R as well, and the last has the one of halfpenny missing, just a blob, I purposely inverted the stamp to make it easier to see.

I can each individually if required.

Regards

Horamakhet.

The second stamp was either affected by lengthy exposure to sunlight or some sort of chemical exposure.
