re: RECENT PURCHASES

Very nice indeed. Two blocks of 4, the bottom Block of 4 came from the top right-hand corner.`Position for the bottom 1½d is 1/6 and 1/12. The top 4 came from the bottom of the sheet but it is impossible for me to say what plate position they are from.

Hi Horamakhet

I turn 63 today, my partner and I will be going out for the day, and as a birthday present I'll be adding a few more stamps to my collection.

Hi Horamakhet

Re your block of 4 1½d browns the three dots in the top right show it as plate 3 right, positions 5, 6, 11 & 12. It is from die 2 and may have either a multiple small crown or C of A watermark. A nice block.

There are a number of platable flaws that may be present but hard to tell without a larger scan.

re: RECENT PURCHASES

Hi Tasnaki

Thank you for the information

I love to have blocks of four or more of KGV stamps. They are getting harder and harder to find, especially in MNH.



I will add a larger scan in a few days.

I assume that you collect Tasmanian stamps, but early copies in good condition are very hard to find in Australia. The pictorials are really spectacular and the colour variations are incredible.

Hi Rob,

Very Happy Birthday, I can think of no better present than more stamps.

On my Birthday which is the 29th of November, I bought more used KGV on line, just waiting till they arrive.

Coral will probably say, more stamps, and yet she asked what catalogues I would like for my birthday as well.

Regards

Horamakhet

Hi Horamakhet

Yes, I do collect Tasmanian stamps, mainly the Pictorials. I have published plating guides for some of the printings, theae are available free from the Tasmanian Philatelic Societies website if you are interested.

I am currently working on the KGV 1½d die 2 plates, trying to make some sense of all the compartment markings, seems like a never ending project!

Hi Tasnaki

I will check out the site.

Hope this scan of the penny & halfpenny brown is large enough, otherwise I can scan each one separately.

Regard

re: RECENT PURCHASES

Hi Horamakhet

The flaws are fairly small and a couple are compartment marks only. I would need to see them scanned larger to see the flaws and marks.

This one came today. Sg# 193a Man with tail flaw. It's used but as you can see a very light cancel. A cold and rainy day in Georgia, this made the day brighter.Happy
