Hi All,
I've been a stamp trader for over 20 years with a special interest in Australian States stamps.
I came across this stamp the other day with an OS overprint error making it CS.
Is this a rarity or is it common? I've never seen this before...
Cheers,
Mick

I've not seen it before. Looks like broken type to me, if so, I'd suggest a rarity.
The overprint looks like the correct dimensions.
Nice find Sir.
My Brusden White is in the mail. Not sure if they list these.
Look forward to see what the other Aussies have to say.

Broken letters on NSW OS stamps are quite common. There's no real demand for this material except maybe in positional blocks.
