Hi to all

In the ACSC page 6/135 there is listed an offset of the penny purple Princess Elizabeth.

The offset is shown at the bottom of the stamp.

These two stamps are they offsets?

Hi Horamakhet

The Princess Elizabeth stamps commemorating her wedding in 1947 that you have were printed on slightly translucent paper, if you have any more of these stamps you will see what I mean.

Here is a William Dampier 50 cent stamp that has an offset.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for that, I was sure that you would have the answer, of over 300, they are the only two that I have found. I will keep a look out for others.

Nice offset. wish it was mine.
