Hi Rod,

The penny pink probably has a DUNOON postmark.

Beginners guide to the KG5 Sc# Type A82.

How they arrive.......



There is a degree of complexity here, so where to?
1. Separate the Engraved (1912) from the Typo (1924)
You are going to need a lot of watermark fluid.



We can separate visually (In general) by visiting the top right corner
The Engraved has clearer lines, the outer frame line is thinner.
The Typo is more smudged print in the corner, outer frame line is thicker



After that, is into the watermark tray for varieties.... a plethora
Have fun.

Nice pair Rod. I didn't know there was a plate 77b.

My 1977 SG Specialised catalogue gives a price of 65 for an imprimatur stamp from either plate but that's not specifically for this key AA position with the plate number.

Only 22 stamps were removed from each of these two imprimatur sheets.
