After German stamps, my area of interest is stamps with varieties from all over the world.
I saw these stamps on a sales site and my question is whether there are registered varieties?

re: Registered varieties?

Hi Gerom

Australian state stamps and King George V stamps are a very specialized area, and if you are to become a collector of either, it would involve a lot a study and obtaining specialize catalogues in the area.

For the KGV you would need to obtain a copy of the Australian commonwealth specialist catalogue, and for the states, it probably easier to consult Stanley Gibbons Australian catalogue.

The Gibbons does not list all the varieties on the state stamps, and there are many, but perhaps also if you search the internet for specialist collections.

I hope this helps a little in this very interesting area of Australian Stamp collecting.

Hi Gerom

The 1d Victoria is a die 1 or 2 with the base of the 1 joining the value frame, which die depends on the shading lines over the Queens head which are not clear in your scan. A common stamp.

The 2d South Australian one I cannot help with. Many of the states stamps have a number of print flaws, most of which are not catalogued, a minor mark like the one shown is probably not uncommon.


An internet search may help and the later Tasmanian pictorial stamps have free catalogues available as PDF files.

The KGV halfpence was printed in both green and orange, a number of different watermarks and perforations were used for the orange printings. Shades listed are orange, bright orange and pale orange.

As Horamakhet says it is a complex area with many flaws, there is a specialised catalogue which shows the major flaws and specialised books for each denomination some of which show hundreds of plated flaws. They are not cheap!!

Hi Horamakhet and Tasnaki,
Thank you for your responses.
In Romania, Australia,New Zealand,Tasmania stamps are hard to find and they are expensive.
I don't found on Tasmania pictorial stamps the pages of catalogue in pdf format but I see on stamporama the "kgvi" with many varieties.It's a first step for the varieties of the this part of the world.

Hi Gerom

Here is the address for an internet sit on Victorian state stamps.

It is quite good, and I use it frequently as a reference source.
