Rod222,

Never disappointing absorbing additional corrective info'.

Yes, a 5/- letter sounds expensive.

Finches,
it is difficult to imagine just what that covered,
Most High Values were either punched telegraphs, or conveyance of gold.
Fremantle would suggest other use.
That is one mighty parcel.

I haven't added anything to this thread in awhile, as my purchases have dropped off a tad. Searching through my current holdings, I found a Scott 124, ACSC 131 which has such a nice corner cancel, that I thought it was 131w, Cancelled to Order. However, it doesn't match the "Melbourne" styles in my book. Was this just a nice strike from Western Australia?


Retroreveal tried to help me out. This is the best scan I could find.

Here's an oddity. It looks like a re-entry, or kiss-print on the right side. This is Scott 8, ACSC BW 17. There is a note in ACSC for 17c that is a partial kiss print. They go on to say, "several used stamps are known showing doubling of the lower left portion of the stamp." Unfortunately, mine is on the right side.

Here is the entire stamp followed by some scans with areas circled showing the extension of horizontal lines on the right side. I thought it may be ink pulls, but those are usually irregularly shaped, while these are pretty consistent. Any thoughts?

Here's a more modern oddity. Scott 288 and 289a. ACSC BW 278 and 279. The Centenary of Postage Stamps in Australia, issued 21 September, 1950. The single is New South Wales, which has some varieties known as the Comet Flaw. However, those varieties are on the left side, as shown in this snippet:


At first glance, it looks like a Ductor Blade line (which can be found in various discussions on this board). But, it looks like BW decided it wasn't. My variety shows a line over to the right.



This second issue is with the Imprint at the bottom. Note the odd mark into the first O of Commonwealth. It isn't an ink pull. What is it?

Opinion.
Random Piece of hair, debris, hodge podge, picked up by the ink.
(EFO) errors freaks or oddities.

Yes, agree on the comment concerning the Imprint. How about the Ductor Blade line? On most stamps, I would call this common. However, they list it on the left side. Just odd, in my opinion.

Personally, I'd send it to Brusden White for consideration in later catalogue.

I am ignorant of the consistency of position of ductor blade lines, I would have thought they be random, yet your catalogue image, suggests otherwise.
