Steve,
as you are probably aware, helping others, invariably helps oneself.
I am learning heaps just by trying to assist.
(albeit, envious of your ability to source such good stamps)

OK, this is the one that I was really looking forward to seeing in hand. Just arrived today from the APS store. The picture was a bit small, and the price was a bit high, but I thought I saw the variety, after some research. This is another third watermark, Scott 58 Specimen (ACSC 56) with a type C Specimen overprint.


The Type C overprint variety is from Column 1, which has a damaged C. However, there is also a variety noted as Sub-type 1a, with a shaved S at left.


You can see both the damaged C and shaved S here.


You may also notice the red line north of Bight. This confirms location L55.


Luckily, the Bight variety is there, otherwise it would be difficult to confirm as a sub-type 1a. Unfortunately, there is a thin in the upper left, which I would assume drastically changes the potential resale value. In my 2017 ACSC, this is valued at AUS$7500 so I'll take what I can get.

A teacher of mine would say "if you can't explain it, you don't know it".

For that reason I like to explain things in fora like this. I undertand the topic more by the time I have.

Just another one to see if it can be plated. Scott 117, ACSC 109, multiple crown C of A watermark. There is a white area above the emu's back that probably shouldn't be there. I can't locate in ACSC. Thanks for looking.

White flaw on Emu's back 109L 8R51

Thanks Rod. You do sleep over there in Australia, don't you?

Steve,
I felt a disc slip, last week digging the scraps in the garden.
I have been practicing sleeping on the floor, to relieve back pain.
If one wakes at 3am, one has to rise, it's working, but painful.

PS I feel I have seen that flaw beforehand, not sure on what denomination.

Note your example has a blunt lower left corner. Did you consider 109j.

Regards
Frank

Here is the page from ACSC and a close-up of the same area on my stamp. Frank ... I think you got it! ACSC describes this as "lower left corner enlarged", position 8L11. I still don't know about the spot on the emu's back, but I think we found the standard variety.

Just arrived, Scott 54, ACSC 44(V)f. This is a Vignette Plate Variety on the 3rd watermark showing a "Ewe-faced kangaroo - State 1". It looks pretty neat up close.



There is also an odd break in the coast below the kangaroos feet, which isn't listed in ACSC.


However, the watermark is infringing in this area, so possibly just a printing anomaly.

Partime,

Always nice seeing additional Islands/Reefs around Australia on higher value Roos due to Inking. (imo). Your top & bottom perfs sort-of look close to stamp frame, possibly misperf'd. ?

Took me decades, on & off, to nail down the cancellation town on this 5/- 3rd w/m Roo.

It is VERY closely perfed, which could indicate someone playing around ... practicing reperfs?

Isn't yours "Free Post, Fremantle, WA"? My best guess ...
