I would like to say hi to everyone in this forum and I am a new member of this forum.I feel nice to meet everyone over here.I have just discovered two australia old stamps in used condition and I can notice those eyes look difference and certainly unusual than normal eyes appeared on this two stamps,only this two stamps with difference eyes in thousand of the similar stamps in my stamp album.The kgvi right eye is unusual on the 3d stamp and the eyes are unusual on the 1.5d stamp.I would think this is something special and unusual to me.Unfortunely,I am not sure if this considered as an error stamps and also a new discovery or not.So that I need help from the experts to identify if this is a printing error and considered as a new discovery or not,tell me about the rarity of this error stamps if this are genuine errors.Anyway,please refer to the scans below and hope to hear from you very soon.


I will get back to you as soon as possible after your reply over here.

Thank you very much for your help and your help is always apprieiciate from me.

Indeed there are two sets of eyes,
moreover, it's the eyebrows one needs to examine.
On yours the eyebrow is drawn left to right.

On another die, the eyebrow travels right to left.

Two distinct dies

Look at his eye move
his eyebrow shape
and the shape of the epaulette on his left shoulder

Rod222, is your above link comparing Die 2 and 3.?

Bubu, after looking thru all of my KGVI 3d Blue's, I found one with the outer right (our view) eye corner appearing ink filled together with the left side of the same pupil being angled, instead of curved, thus giving the eyes that distinct look.

Hi finches,
yes, in our speak of course.
SG has the "die3" as we call it
as a new number SG186 (oct 1940)
that's with the eyebrow left to right shaded
(a redrawn die)
Hope that makes sense

Rod222,you mean that there are two difference sets of eyes which are Die I and Die II?If yes,this two australia 3d and 1.5d stamps which are normal but not an errors?Did you mean the eye ball or eye bow which have two difference dies?I mean the eye balls which look very much difference than normal when I compared them with thousand of the similar stamps of each stamp especially the 1.5d stamp with unusual eyes ball which look so funny to be honest,hope you get what I mean and explain everything to me in detail and probably you are an expert in australia stamps because you are from there.Anyway,your help is very much apprieiciated from me once again and hope to hear from you very soon.

Finches,sound like you have found another similar 3d stamp that the kgvi right eye is unusual and filled in blue inked just exactly same like mine,hope you can show the scan over because I have compared it with thousand of 3d stamps and none of them like this one for sure.Hard to believe that you found one exactly like this so easily.Anyway,it is good for you.
