Hi to all, especially Rob

Well this may not be a thin Hereford Bull, but it is certainly thinner than most other copies I have found.

Or is it just printed on a different paper or does it looker thinner because it is used?

What is your opinion Rob?

OBVERSE: Thinner one is the extreme left

Hi Horamakhet

I'm recovering from influenza, it knocked me about a bit, I feel a little bit more energetic today though I need a few weeks to properly recover, so I'll answer your question about the thin paper Hereford Bull, to date no thin paper of this stamp has ever been discovered.

Even though it mentions that the thin paper type do exist in the ACSC, not one single thin paper has been recorded since the printing of the 1/3d in 1948.

What you have are likely different types of transparent papers, if by chance a thin paper exists, the only way to identify one is via a micrometer.

Without the proper measurement, determining whether it is transparent paper or thin transparent paper will not be possible.

Hi Rob

Glad to hear you are getting better. Lots of rest, and listening to your partner will do wonders.

I'll keep searching, and see if I can find anything thinner.
The chase is on

Hi Horamakhet

I feel a little better but I have a little way to go yet. The nurses and doctors said that if she didn't stop panicking that she will be a patient as well, the hospital staff and I were very worried about her.

I was in the isolation ward for a few days, at least Victoria found a way to entertain herself while she was visiting me, she took selfies of herself wearing a mask and gown beside me while I was asleep hooked up to an oxygen machine and a drip infused with antibiotics and other drugs.

She showed me the images, talk about embarrassment.

I will be sending the emus back soon, couldn't find anything.

Rob

Hi Rob

Glad you are feeling better.


It is a slow road to recovery, but listen to Victoria, women know best.

I know what it is like to be in an isolation ward for a week

My wife, Coral is a nurse, so she pretty much ensures that I am well, but horror upon horrors, She does not believe in MAN FLU.

They need to retrain the whole female nursing profession, now that the medical fraternity has officially recognised Man Flu
