Rod, yes, but still confused. In the front of my ACSC for KGVI (dated 1995), there is a detailed drawing of the Master Plate, as shown here:


Since I have the two pips, and based on the gutter lines and orientation of the stamps, I must have my block from either one of these two locations:


So I don't see how you can get a Perf Pip, Block of 8 with the imprint, unless the block is only a single row of 8? Doesn't make sense, but I'm here to learn.

The drawing of the master plate relates to the portrait-orientated stamps.

For the landscape or horizontally aligned stamps you have to remember the imprint is switched around... otherwise it would be sideways and on the left or right margins.

As explained by plateflaw, shown here on my pane of Her Majesty.
Pip location etc.


Simply rotate Plate 90 degrees

If there was a plate number, it was unfortunately removed on the right.


I cannot confirm from anything but a foggy memory,
It is very rare to have Plate numbers on sheets.
They were guillotined off, during production.

PS : Learnt another phrase for the Australian philatelic lexicon.
"Gutter defacing lines"

This one is Scott O6, ACSC 69(OS)(9)f, broken SE corner. But note that it is also CTO and it has a missing line in the top of the S in the OS overprint that I have not seen before. Hinge mark on back, but nice.

Just to link it correctly, there are some Walter Crosby questions with Australian Stamps posted here:

This oddity is probably just a "tin shed flaw" evidenced by the disruptions on the right side, but there is an interesting mark above the S in Australia that seems disconnected from the other issues. Is this something that is missing from ACSC? This is Scott 24, ACSC 85, to the best of my knowledge.

This one really stands out to me, and I can't find it in my ACSC. This is Scott 26, ACSC 89. This appears to be a "T.HREE" flaw. Note the perfectly round dot just after the T.

You certainly find some doozies, Steve.
I see nothing in BW
I have 11 specialist catalogues of the KGV
only 1 for the 1d (Die ll) Gordon Ward.

Your "R" in three, also looks like a "P" with an efo flaw

Freshly retired, and lots of time on my hands. Plus, a few local bourses that have some interesting offerings. Now, this is a Die I, and I only have the Die II book also, so nothing I can find so far. But I'll keep looking.
