OK, I admit I'm having a tough time with this one. Why the high purchase price?


I was teasing Steve, (and I had a similar tough time)
The answer is the color, it is Analine Brown, collectors of the overprinted
N.W. / PACIFIC / ISLANDS will be aufait with this colour, it is common,
but not so on the unoverprinted, cataloguing at $1,000 used $3,000 hinged for used back in 2007.

To be frank, I am still ignorant of just what is "analine brown"

Aniline is an organic compound which is used in preparation of soluble dyes. For industrial uses it is produced by mixing benzine with some acids and then further chemical processing of that product. An oversimplification I know but the technical processes are quite complicated. When used in stamp printing if used on wrong paper it causes bleeding through to the back of the stamp.

It has also been used in fuels for small rockets! And is one of the precursors in making polyurethane.

Toxic so not a nice thing to use regularly.

Others with more knowledge of aniline stamps may care to add or correct.

I have never knowingly owned an aniline stamp.

Regards
Frank

Thank you for responding Frank.

In my experience / understanding, I have owned countless thousands of aniline stamps, I have always believed they were the "water soluble" purple / magenta issues of most countries.
Not based on fact, just my rudimentary understanding.

I just went to "Askphil" and their notes read:
Aniline ink: a water-soluble ink which fluoresces under ultraviolet light; such as used on Roosevelt Small Die Proofs.

I had never come across an aniline brown, I was presuming is was then, water soluble brown, which appeared strange to me.

Most striking anilines, as I understand it, are the KGVl Malay states
Kelantan.


You may have owned one of these Frank.

So that ugly stamp on the previous page is really valued so highly because if you turn it over and examine the other side, then you will see the brown soaking through? I have a few Red Aniline stamps, and they are quite interesting, but nothing close to the price that was paid for that one. Some things are a little difficult to justify, in my opinion.

Oh well, interesting discussion.

We are paying this Lass $27,000 a week.

Rod, corruption knows no bounds. Nothing like being greedy, seems those who have the most just want to take more.

Rod, isn't it strange how, when these people are caught with their hands in the till, that they can just resign and walk away? Normal people end up in jail. Still, at least she hasn't got the nerve to ask for 'financial compensation'!

Sometimes, to make the stupid grow, discipline is essential.
The wrong in stealing something as useless as jewels, is less than that they belong to someone else, and more that you offend against yourself, by coveting hem at all.

Ms Holgate was revealed as the country's highest paid civil servant last year, earning more than $2.5 million in 2018/19, equating to $208,000 every month.

That eye-watering figure is still a far cry from Ms Holgate's predecessor Ahmed Fahour, whose $6.8 million salary sparked widespread condemnation and led to former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull admitting "that remuneration is too high".

The Australian Coat of Arms.



The shield is held up by the native Australian animals the kangaroo and the emu, which were chosen to symbolise a nation moving forward, based on the fact that neither animal can move backwards easily.

Flexography evolved from a primitive printing process known as "aniline printing." In the early 1900s, this printing process took root to print flexible substrates using inks that were based on aniline-based dyes.

Although the earliest use of aniline printing can be traced to 1860, the first patent for an aniline press was issued in 1908.

From the very start, it was not considered a quality printing process compared to letterpress, lithography, or rotogravure. However, it provided quick ink drying to increase the speed of printing produce bags in a continuous operation.

Windmoeller & Hoelscher GmbH of Germany produced some of the first aniline presses in 1914.

Aniline is not a colour; it can be in brown, pink or carmine inks.

As much as I read about aniline, it remains mystifying to me.
I am aware of the KGV aniline, and the brown Kangaroo.

I have an album of stamps collected in coin pockets, that show "aniline appearing" (damaged) Australian stamps.
