Hi Partime

The Celestron USB microscope is a good piece of equipment, the image is still quite good and clear.

Rob. OK, one last try. I just picked up this one for a nickel. Is this the Pantaloon flaw?

Hi Partime

Sadly it isn't.


I have no idea why there are two borders, there shouldn't be any.

Hi Peter

That is my earlier post when I enlarged the images on a scanner, I thought by uploading the stamps after they were photographed from a microscope it will show better detailing of the varieties giving a better insight to identifying varieties.

Hi Rob. I did a little more research, and stumbled upon another Australian website that had some excellent examples of the various stages of the Pantaloon Flaw. It is located toward the end of this longer thread (by Poster PhilipAdams):

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtop...f=10&t=22147

In my opinion, I have something close to the second state of the Pantaloon flaw as evidenced by:

"(a) The joined lines are more extensive and prominent (A).
(b) The short vertical line has developed into a small flaw (A).
(c) Signs of a flaw on the solder's pantaloon are just discernible (A).
(d) Flaw on soldier's arm is more developed (B)."

I think the key is that the lines at the base of the tree are joined. Your sample shows the same effect, but an obviously larger color flaw on the pantaloon. What I don't see from your picture is the Flaw on the soldier's arm, which should be quite easy to see. Note that on all other copies of this stamp that I own, none have the joined lines.

Here is the same picture with arrows pointing to the Joined Lines at the base of the tree.


What do you think?

Hi Partime

Thanks for the info, it's very interesting and something I didn't know; I've communicated quite often with Philip (from the other forum) in the past, will PM him again to get any update info of the "Pantaloon" flaw.

I will also have another look at the one I have to see what state of the "Pantaloon" flaw it is and will search for the remainder.
