Fantastic!
reminds me of the Netherlands 2.5 cent stamp
it has 2 1/2 throughout the background design.

I guess you have an 1871 fiscal, used 16 years later
25th february.

Selva:
You have a SG "Type 12"
this is identified by the backfround lines
meeting the oval line.
In the Type 11 they do not quite meet.
Perhaps we shall dig up a copy of the Type 11 for illustration.

Type 12 are from new printing plates
groups of 4 electrotypes.

Number 2 in each group of electrotypes has the "L" and "A"
of Queensland joined at the foot...Yours

(number three of each group has "P" of Pence with a long downstroke.)

The 2d is known bisected and used as 1d

Acknowledgement : Stanley Gibbons Catalogues.

I cannot identify yours Selva until you disclose the perf
Could be Perf 12 or Perf 9.5 x 12

Broken "S" possibly EFO with overinking
not listed

What to look for?
Oval white flaw on Queen's head behind diadem.

John:
Thanks.

1d Type 21 vermilion
P12.5, 13.
wmk6

What to look for?
Perf 12 x 9.5 (non authorised issue)

Do not recognise pmk 514 or 592

Guess = 514 is Rockhampton
(You have 100 post offices ending in TON)

You also have a TAUNTON, and a STONEHENGE

Hi Selva,
then you have an SG180
the constant flaw joined L and A
does not attract a special variety number

Do not worry about the Queen's head flaw,
I expect it to be a white spot similar but smaller
than the cracked plate image.

Yours is not of this type. CV 30p :)
Thanks for posting :)


For the record: There are 12 types of the 2d

I had a gentleman from Canada tell me that his Grandfather came from Longreach.

As bonus stamps I gave him the stamp above with a Longreach cancel which also carried 592.

Also gave a buyer in Rockhamton a Rockhampton and a 514 cancel

Also gave a buyer from Roma one of these stamps with a Roma cancel. Can not remember the number.

I had totally forgotten about doing any of this until I read your a possible Rockhampton description.

I may remind readers here, I am only learning Queensland
and I may make mistakes.

Like this supposedly SG206 looks like SG203 to me
(ie vermilion v red orange)
I wonder what other readers think?
(ps nice example of bust penetrating oval variety)

Wow!
very nice Jad ! saved in my database.

Jad, you will need to adjust your thinking.
esp with Queensland, that stamp is not "sad", it's bonzer.

All stamps do not need to be Mint unhinged and pristine,

Lovely Postmark too Jad "6 barred 595" (sideface) rated 2R 2nd degree rare.
Lappa Lappa (aboriginal name for a large rock bluff at the now named Lappa Junction)

Check your Postmarks with this wonderful site.....

http://queenslandstampnumerals.blog...ch/label/595

PS: Get your magnifying glass out, I think the stamp adjacent has the extended "P" also..........

Glad you like her Rod, least I can do is add a better scan of the Lady for you.
Had a quick look at your great link & can see I'll be in there for hours.
Steeeep learning curve mate. I still need to learn spell check
I couldn't tell so re-scanned the second stamp, it might be the very thing you warned me about, how the cancels can effect what we see ;)
I don't think it is one but I'm still not sure. Best I can get out of the old scanner. & no auto correct used.
Thanks for your help...........Jad
