I'm no expert on the subject jleb, but I think they may be referring to the actual diameter of the perforation holes (they do look a bit smallish). It seems to be perf-12 (spacing between holes), but done with smaller pins.

...anyhow, I couldn't pass it up for that price!

A very pretty stamp... You did well.

I tend to fall for nice stamps very easily :)

This stamp image was sent to me and the person asked if I would post it here and ask for feedback. It was purchased as a #112.

Bob,
if the item was at auction, regardless of the venue, the underbidder should have bid the maximum they wanted to spend on the item. If they did, no one was sniped. Sak knew he wanted the item and bid according.

That seems a curious phrasing "perfs do not align on the .. gauge." Maybe I am just dull this afternoon and not apprehending, but is it now a slightly different perf on the left than the right?

Or is the issue the size of perf (two perfs in the middle on left look slightly smaller to me)?


The most common way of describing the gauging for perfs is to say they are perf 12, or perf 11-1/2, or perf 11, etc, which means that there are 12 (or 11-1/2, or 11, etc) perfs over a 2 centimeter length.

The Kiusalas gauge measures more accurately - a stamp that gauges 12-66 on the Kiusalas means that it has 12 perfs per 2 cm, and that there is 0.066" between perf holes - not all perf 12's are the same. Oftentimes, re-perfers will 'doctor' a stamp to perf 12, being unaware that it has been documented that genuinely perforated stamps of that issue should be PRECISELY 12-66, but they did something slightly different. Now, all you need to do is know what the proper gauging is for the stamp that you are measuring on the Kiusalas gauge.

Love the design on the post rider & horse. Some may not know but it was the first U.S. stamp issued with an image other than a prominent American.


Just arrived. Australian 10/- Navigator marginal block of 4 never hinged.

DON - On the #112.....
From a photo...(to me)...I think looks good....I looked at some
other #112s I have here and there is large enough space between stamps to have such large margins....it looks like you can barely see the stamp above on the perf tips....I vote GOOD!!

Wow. I love those semi-official airs.

I will not let myself be distracted by them -- not too much at least -- but as Rogdcam earlier noted, they do evoke quite clearly an era of enthusiasm, possibilities, and exploration. Seat of the pants as they said, and not endless bureaucracy with focus groups and multiple legal reviews and tightly controlled messaging.... I'm projecting, I know.

For those of us who know nothing about these, is there a reference work or overview you might recommend by way of a survey?

Hi jleb1979, I agree with you and Rogdcam. Philatelically, I know nothing about the stamps.
