The 1950 King George 6 stamp (KGVI) could have it's watermark sideways or inverted and be worth a few dollars.

The Machins (May chins) (guy who carved the bust Mr Machin.) are a tricky and deep subject. The lower values can be checked for one phospher tagging band vertically down the center or two bands down the sides OR no tagging at all which is worth quite a bit to those that collect such things.

Always the chance, best to check if you have a UV lamp (not sure long wave or short wave on the GB stamps check Robin Harris's Machin site: http://www.adminware.ca/machin.htm for more details than you'd ever thought possible about a series of stamps.

You might be able to see the bands in normal daylight also as discolourations where the bands are.

I do not have a catalogue for the higher and newer values.

There can be differences in the paper, the printer, the prfs, the tagging, the actual colour and probably more things too. The socked on the nose (SOTN SON) cancel on the 2nd 10p is a wonderful cancel for what I can read of it. A closer scan would be appreciated by us who appreciate a nice cancel if you have the time. Oh, and post it in the Socked on the Nose thread here also.

The mauve coloured (I think) 65p Rose of England (War of the Roses etc) is a regional stamp and listed separately under the different regions (Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland, all with their own regional symbols and colours. Some do collect these. I like the Welsh dragon stamp myself (not shown).

The higher values for the Machins may be worth more as they would be a not so many printed kind of stamp perhaps (hopefully)

How so ever they are all nice looking stamps as many would agree. Classic design, mostly great colours. Search on Stamp Community under Machin and there are a couple of good threads on them.

Puzzler - just sold an amazing British collection - 22 pounds weight altogether - well I gave it away actually for $100.00 Loaded with Machins and all sorts of neat goodies. Only one bid. Amazing. eBay is sometimes very good - and sometimes not so good.

Hi! LONEDAN.
Like the way you are getting into your kiloware,
you do the sport justice.

Keep your eye out for parcel mail lots.
Great kiloware that stuff!
Sometimes you will see older,
cheaper kiloware, which has many rewards as well.

Every week I have to have my kiloware fix.
Hopelessly addicted. KGV

LoneDan,
To get proper pricing and catalogue numbers and all that data from as wide an audience as possible post just your Great Britain Machin stamps in their own new thread called something like 'GB Machin help please' or something along those lines.

people most times look at the titles of the thread and zero in on their interests, so with the best title you get the best answers.

Any other confusion I can explain perhaps. I was rather all over the place in telling you about many different things in my message so please feel free to ask questions for clarification or anything else that intrigues you.

Moonbird,
I just looked at your listings. Sad story about the GB stamps indeed. I believe slightly different titles will help you. Email sent.

Lonedan,

Looks like an exciting box. Love the PNC flags. Superb. I collect them too...just the flags that is.

I answered some questions for you about the British stamps on another thread, maybe you missed it?

Enjoy the rest of the search !

Nice looking space ship stamp. Haven't seen that one before.

Good example on the Washington stamp of how the perf holes sometimes stay with the stamp.
