I was making my files correct, since I now have a Perf gauge. I am using a Scott 2009 catalog vol #1 to check my Australia stamps, of course the first stamp I came to was now in question. The Perf for this stamp according to Scott is 14 x 14 1/2, but using the gauge it is 11 1/2 x 11 1/2. Has anybody have any input?

Scott # 1530

Hi Tomd
My 2003 Scotts has the self adhesive stamps of that set at 11.5, 11.25, serpentine die cut, which is what that looks like. The 11.5 perf would have been from booklet stamps.

Hi Tom,
these are best described as "diecut" perfs.
Generally there shall be two diecut formes
and if you begin to collect Australia, you soon will
become conversant with each, they are very easily recognised






Two differing diecuts and a normal perf

Thank you both,
jamesw,
I thought I was going nuts or it might be a typo in the Scott's catalog.
Where will I find this stamp in the Scott's catalog, and is it the same number?

rod222,
That is great info, I can see my stamp has the middle perf cut.
Boy there is a lot to stamp collecting. I am so glad for the help and to know the wealth of knowledge is so overwhelming out there I can only hope to be at that stage.

I am so dumb, My wife tells me all I need to do is move things around and I will find what I am looking for. Now I know what I am looking for I found it a little further down. My stamp is Scott # 1539

Hey that's cool Tom,

we all do it.
No more talk about being dumb eh? :)

No problem, Still these stamps sometime have such little differences I never would have had it right. Buying the perf gauge was an eye opener for sure. Well worth the money spent. Now to go and fix any errors, now that I can use another tool in identifying my stamps. I do like learning new things and this is only the tip of the iceberg of stamp knowledge for me.

I do want to thank you for your offer and my address is:




I like it here, It was a little tough in the beginning, being new to any forum. Still having a little trouble as I have typed this email 5 or 6 times. I had tried to show you what I currently have but my JPEG's would not go through. Is there a how to on how to get around? I have tried to enter my birthday and no luck, the instructions are clear but no birthday icon. Come to find out I am not the only one having problems. And how do you make someone a friend? I have emailed the staff and no answer. I am only asking because with that many post you know what you are doing.

Again thank you for your offer and I hope to repay when I figure out what I have. Your new friend from the other side of the globe, Tom

I do not have enough post to use the e mail yet

OK Thanks Tom,
possibly good idea to remove your name and address from your post
the internet should be used with caution.
I have you addy and will send your stamps.

Things are always a bit skewbald at first
but you'll get the hang of it,
just exercise patience :)

T remove you address and email

I know, patience never was a strong part of me, but I have come a long way. Well, 20 post and counting, when I get to that magic number will a lot of my questions be answered for me. Back to my stamp cataloging, a never ending task, but enjoyable.
