1974 $2 'Red Gums of Far North'

I have just spent time going through my examples of this stamp. Brusden White list 4 varieties in used condition and until I found a "fungus" flaw (BW 665e) I really had no idea what I was looking for as the the images and description did not really help. Had I read the attached note (6) I would have read that there is also a red dot in the sky on both stage I and II of this flaw. Once this was known I found a stage I, the stage II is very obvious.

BW 665d blue dot on hill at left



BW 665f large green dot between trees
(note: it's more a line than a dot, and also appears as a 'v')




The above two varieties note colour while BW 665e does not.

BW 665e "fungus" flaw on large tree at right
(the fungus is not noticable in the b/w images provided and will cause great frustration but once you spot a stage II you know all! I'm not great in description of colour but I would say bright neon blue (aqua). And once I realised the red dot (note 6.) I found a stage I, though I'm still not sure because the red dot has moved slightly right, which is not consistent BUT it does have small neon colour as per stage II. Maybe a very early stage I ???)
The scans do no justice to the colour.

BW 665e stage I



DW665e stage II



Has anyone else a stage I we can compare with?

1979 Fishing in Australia 50c Deep Sea

I previously posted this block of four on page 3 of this thread as it showed the two left stamps with a vertical strip of (violet) missing from the background mountain, left of the fishing line. This doesn't appear in any catalogue I've seen.

However, on revisiting this stamp I notice that the top left stamp (one of the 2 with the missing colour) has the ACSC 855d Red flaw over "5" of "50".

Does anyone have this flaw and could check to see if their stamp also has the missing violet. With what I have all I can say is at least two stamps in column have the missing violet.
Appreciate any input on this.

Block of four - top left is ACSC 855d

855d enlargement
