The stamp on the left is the regular issue and the stamp on the right, thin paper. The thin paper is more translucent (transparent) than the regular issue as shown, as they both look very similar from the back a more accurate measurement should be undertaken by a micrometer shown below.

Total invoice value of stamps - $5,445

Hi Rob
Very impressive collection

Would love to own items like that, but as I say, who knows what is out there waiting to be found

Hi Horamakhet

With the emu there has to be a sheet or two printed, it is a very difficult stamp to locate, the thin paper £2, most likely just one sheet, it is also a very difficult stamp to locate, and with the thin paper roller flaw, only two exist and this stamp is the better of the two.
