Image Not Found Could someone please tell me about this stamp. The Kangaroo's ears are not right, The fraction 1/2 in the right side is not right, There looks like a white line going down past the Kangaroo and A, There is alot more white joining the H of Half, The Kangaroo's mouth and his hind legs dosen't look right. King George hairline looks like it has gone further above his head.

Someone kindly give me a book but I can't find anything in the book

Without the stamp being turned over, I'm guessing it's a large multi watermark. The lines on the front will coincide with the watermark.

re: KGV 1/2 stamp

OK, I can see a large crown now at the right center of the stamp. There also appear to be "A" around it. So, it appears to be the multiple crown and "A" watermark.

re: KGV 1/2 stamp

Thankyou,do you know any information you can give me about the information as I'm stumped. Also can you tell me if this stamp has a line perforations or a comb perforations. I have been doing my homework on this.

The kangaroo's ears are not right as the only way to describe them is they look like a M in McDonalds. I will have another look at the watermark and let you know as this stamp doesn't look right

re: KGV 1/2 stamp

I had a look and it is crown over A mult watermark. Does anyone know where I can find more information about this stamp as I just looked at the stamp again, the Kangaroo ears look like bunny ears. I'm still learning so any help would be good, I hope people can see the Kangaroo ears also the other things on the stamp. Thankyou

re: KGV 1/2 stamp

Hello again, I'm just looking at the stamp again and is that a upside down no 5 at the top near the wattle also near the wattles there is some darker lines. I'm guessing they are wattles?? I haven't got my computer until tonight to make some images bigger

re: KGV 1/2 stamp

I have had a bigger and better look at this stamp

No 5 at top
Wattle wearing beanie near no 5
Kangaroo poking his tongue out
Dark lines just below beanie looks like something was crossed out a retouch??
crack just above kangaroo going to U
The 1 of 1/2 on left bottom half is bent also part of the 2 is straight where it is supposed to be bent

Hi Pooh

I enlarged the stamp and darkened it to bring out any variety it may have. What you see are numerous scratches and wear from constant handling over the decades; these can give an appearance as if they are varieties.
