Starting by mounting the most ubiquitous...the Officials.
1958 Officials.
Steiner Page 55.
All pre-used mounts, hand cut by scissors, and adhered by 3mm Double side Acid free tape.
Scott Guage as Perf 14, all mine are 13.75.


Alan, all my duplicates (so far) are on the way over, hope there is something of interest / use.

Rod,

Many thanks...I look forward to checking them out!

One question on the 25p (deep) carmine stamp above. Shouldn't that one be in the 76-80 set listed 'without currency description' (carmine rose)?

Thanks,
Alan

You got it! Nice 20/20 vision Alan.
I did spot it earlier when checking perf guage, you were too quick

These fellas can make your hair curl, when doing them all at once.
They all begin to look the same.
Best route is ID by Wmk first, then work from there.

I am seeing the hardest to find is the 1957-58 Wmk 324 set.

Rod, I only caught this because I have been going cross-eyed sorting mine!

Your finished page looks great, and including the watermark is instructive to others. Nice job!

Alan

Curiosity:
Apart from the Scott Postage Stamp Catalogue, I could not find an example of the Watermark "Large Star and INDIA Govt in sheet" anywhere on the internet.
Amazing.

Thank you P12 for the Sc#Wmk360
I make students aware in your image (which I shall use) the "G" in Govt
is more defined in the actual Wmk (Shown as Covi here)
Nice to see it in format. Dashed if I could find it.

OK, I have the Half Annas sorted, good to get this out of the way.

Exists 3 varieties, 1855 Unwatermarked (easy)
1865 Wmk 38 (Die l only) Exist Blue and Pale Blue.
1873 Wmk 38 Die ll

All typographed by DelaRue.

Die l v Die ll you ask?
I failed to get Gibbons suggestion, fortunately Her Majesty's eye, seem to rarely get cancelling ink.
So Die I will have 3 straightish lines under her Eye
Die ll appears to me to be an "h" or an "m" (sideways) under her eye

In my collection so far, I have 1 x Unwmk, 5 x Die 1, 5 x Die ll
Die I all appear to be "Pale Blue"

Wmk and ID images : Stanley Gibbons Brit Comm 1972

The Unwmk has a strange Postmark for me.
1855 Unwmk

1865 Die l

1873 Die ll

Die types can make your eyes pop after a while. From your pics, in Die II I notice the eyeball more clearly realised, more point and definition to the nose, better drawn lips - puckered for Albert's attentions, rather than curled to admonish Edward - the hair design to the right of the eye including a 'U' against a dark background. Much better job all round.
