NSK,

Yes, I did!

The fourth time was a charm. What Alberto Diena was doing expertising an Irish stamp, I don't know. His specialty is early Italy. Nevertheless, the measurements were accurate.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.

Congrats!

I just learned this issue has a setting variety: the R of Rialtas is set to the left over the S of Sealadac. It occurs in position 10/2 of the sheet. I do not know if it occurs in other positions.

Hint: look at your 2/6 stamp.

Is this the setback you are referring to? Missed that in Hibernian.....

Yes. You will not find it in Hibernian. I saw a certificate (attest) by Roy Hamilton-Bowen - the editor of the Hibernian - that mentioned this variety.

NSK,

Thank you for the information! I will have to add that note to my album.
You mentioned that it is on position 10/2 of the sheet. If someone is plating this variety and wants to examine my copy, PM me. I would be happy to send detailed scans.

Thanks!
Dan

The Marquess of Bute's collection included a set with bottom margins showing parts of the sheet-centre cross on the right-hand side of the margin. This identifies all three stamps as being from position 38 (R.10/2). All three stamps have this variety. It is constant at least for this position.

Concerning SOAR stamps: both the Hibernian 2020 and S.Gibbons 2019 Ireland catalogues have sections on machine labels/stamps. A search here on 'soar' will produce some helpful blogs.

Sheep in Wolf's clothing ?
Appearing as Sc#87 1933 A2 1p Map of Ireland
COIL STAMP
Looks dodgy to me, manufactured from a Booklet Pane?
Mint full gum, tiny hinge remnant.
Thanks for your opinions.

Rod, what is the perforation gauge and watermark? An s in a Gaelic e, or just an e (Saorstat Eirreann, or Eire).
You might be looking at a 1968 issue.

Boy, I really messed up there,
apologise for not giving all the details.
Perf 15 Horizontally.
Wmk Sc Type #262 = Oval E

I could not find any Sc# Type A2 in 1968
I guess, if genuine, then Sc# 105 (1946) Coil

Thanks for the prod, NSK, I didn't look past 1933
(And Heaven forbid, I did not test for Wmk )

Hibernian lists it after the 1968 high values, but it appears these date from the 1940s. Hibernian is not always clear. Oddly, Roy uses 1946 on his website. Based on the site that should not be mentioned here 1946, Scott #105 is the candidate I was thinking of.

Looks fine:

Top and bottom perfs are not shortish as is common for one of them if from booklets.

Right, NSK, thanks for you time and knowledge.
I did think the edges looked genuine (not cut by scissors or scalpel)
but then I saw what looked liked dents, and I became suspicious.

This thread is one reason that I am on the SCF. After a couple of months or so away I dug back in to my Ireland collection today and have spent the last two hours reading all of the pages and associated blogs. It's exciting to get back into the material. Thanks to all. Greg
