Hi folks,

Could somebody with a current Stanley Gibbons Commonwealth & Empire catalogue please tell me if the issue date for SG207 shows as 4.71 or 8.71?

Many thanks,

Bobby

Since at least 1927 Gibbons have had the issue date of SG207 as August 1871.

Basset Hull, Hutson & Lowe all state April 1871.

I picked this up while doing my research and advised SG and they rightfully asked for evidence of an example dated between April and August.

Then this pair turned up.






You can clearly see the W of the watermark on the left (as you're looking at it in the photo) stamp.

I'm in the process of writing a monologue on the NSW DLR stamps and will post it here (but not all at once!) when done.

Thanks again folks

Outstanding, Bobby De La Rue - thanks for this.

I look forward to your monologue.

I am also putting together gathered information on the halfpenny and one penny De La Rue issues and will seek your permission to use the image of that pair if I ever get around to finishing and publishing it.

Thanks fairdinkumstamps

Permission granted - I'm of the opinion that knowledge should be freely available!

That cancel is my favourite Sydney cancel. I have a 1d pair dated May 1871 but they have the single-lined 1 watermark.

Thank you very much Bobby De La Rue.

It is a nice postmark - this one is also single-lined "1":

Lovely fairdinkumstamps

I have my own nickname for these: a cartwheel cancel.
