Finally found my way back to this thread. This is probably a "tin shed", but posted for comments (if any). Note the flaw below the first A of Australia. Also, the P of Postage is quite blurred, but it is located close to the cancellation, so could be some sort of processing smudge.

Scott 98, ASCS 34, 1 shilling, small multiple watermark.

Here's another one. I always have difficulties with this stamp, due to subtle shade differences. I'm going to call this Scott 24, ACSC 85. What I find to be an oddity is the small ink-blob on the P of HALFPENCE. It makes it appear to be HALFrENCE, which I can't locate in ACSC. Probably just a one-off inking error, but thought I would post for amusement.

You need two examples to confirm as other than a one-off.

Yes, I'll keep looking but I don't have too much faith in finding its twin. Thanks for commenting.

Finally got out to a Stamp Bourse (been working a lot lately ... even though retired). This item is just different. I looked in up in my ACSC (ACSC 1922), and it appears to be from the 1996 Centenary of the Australian Football League. This is the Brisbane Booklet of 10, but it is attached to an envelope stamped at the Queensland Stamp and Coin Expo held in Brisbane from 8-10 October, 1996. So, it is not a first day cover of the stamp issue, but is a first day cover of the Expo. Quite interesting that the entire booklet is glued to the envelope, but it does open showing that each stamp is cancelled correctly.

Unfolded


Any idea of correct ACSC callout and current value? Thanks in advance.

You are correct. They just missed that one. I'll leave it alone, however.

Have never seen a miss cancelation on a purpose cover before. Interesting
