Are there any is any good web sites that contain information about the different types of flaws that Roo stamps might have? I have about 40 (all low value) Roo stamps the catalogue are very expensive for a Australian Specialized catalogue and my library does not have a set for me too look at, so If there is any information on were I need to look at be greatly appreciated

thanks for your help

re: Kangaroo Help

Why don't you post a few scans of your Kangaroo stamps here? There are so many flaws on these stamps I think it would be hard to find a web site that lists them all.
I have the Australian Commonwealth Specialists Catalogue, (ACSC) and would be happy to help, if I can.
I'm sure others here would be glad to help. In other words, we would like to see what you haveHappy

re: Kangaroo Help

Hi warrenthamm

Early low value Kangaroo & Map stamps were plagued with minor errors, so much so that the ACSC ignored them as there would be far too many to add to a catalogue; the flaws that are mentioned in the catalogue are uncommon to extremely rare.

If you obtained the Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue (ACSC), it most likely would be a waste of money for you if the varieties you have are numerous.

The stamps you have shown seems normal, I cannot see any varieties on them, but it doesn't mean the interest does not exist, the place of cancellation on the postmark can be very interesting, in some areas, more valuable than the varieties.

You should also have the postmarks, if visibly identifiable, checked up. I have noticed you have two perfins (personal initials), the punctured holes on stamps; unfortunately I cannot read them as there is a white background.

Rob
