No "F" in New South Wales.


Correct. So is it the "E" in NEW or the "E" in WALES? I don't see a following W or S. Hmm.

Not having the full dandy roll image, I am at a loss to advise.
Your stamp does not fit either, from the part image of the dandy roll I posted.
Could be E of "POSTAGE" ?

Partime,

Your stamp shows the E of POSTAGE from the lower right hand corner of the sheet.

Here is part of the image from Basset Hull:

Also important to note is that this paper was not manufactured for the square diadem plates. Because of this, marginal lettering is not unusual to see on the diadems but not common at all on the DLR stamps.

Bobby De La Rue,

The great Guybon John Hutson doesn't use the phrase 'very rare' often but describes the marginal lettering on stamps from the single line numeral watermark paper thusly.

On that paper and the Crown over NSW issues, NEW SOUTH WALES was at the top and bottom of the sheets.

Yours, however, may be from the stamp duty paper which had NEW SOUTH WALES at the sides of the sheet, matching the orientation of your watermark.

Regarding the De La Rue issues on that paper, Hutson states on page 71:

"Owing to the plates not fitting the watermarks they often show portions of the large marginal letters NEW SOUTH WALES and STAMP DUTY, and a few stamp escape the watermark altogether."

I think you're 100% correct fairdinkumstamps.

The coarse print is one indicator, but the sealer was there's just enough of the cancel to prove it's a White D16 type. I'll have to see if I can pin down the individual device. On a quick look I think it's either 1 or 20.
