Please help out ... I can't quite ID. I just got a cover, and the King George V 1p Green looked interesting, as I saw a dent on the bottom frame. My ACSC notes a variety called 82(1)d which shows a series of dents. Here is a closeup of the bottom area, and the dent is clearly under the Y of Penny.



The ACSC lists a variety of styles, with a caveat that this occurred, "... on a vertical strip of six stamps ... These appeared only in a late 1934 printing, and was quickly repaired."

The problem is that my dent does not match any of the varieties listed in ACSC. Here is a copy of the entire cover (Sorry, nothing on the back):



I wonder if some of our CDS experts can pull the date from this example? I did a tight scan, and some color manipulation, and the best I can guess is that this is a 1932 date, which puts it too soon for the variety. Any advise on the actual date? Thanks.

Hi Partime,

As you say this dent doesn't match any of the ACSC 82(1)d varieties so I don't see what the date has got to do with the identification unless you have a different constant variety in mind.

I suspect it's a one-off non-constant error.

Agreed, most probably a piece of rubbish adhering to the plate.

You know what ... that was exactly my thought, but you have come up with the most realistic response to my question. It is amazingly close to the same shape and size of all of the other dents listed, though. The hunt continues.

In that case, it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility
yours "dent" would lie in the location on Plate 1 at either stamp 4,8,52,or 58

It is curious how the dents all lie in a vertical alignment under each other.

If one drew a diagonal line joining the dents, they progress downwards towards the right
excepting 82 de which is the anomally.
As if something heavy had been dragged across the plate.

Your "dent" fits snugly in that diagonal line.
