This is one of the numerous Sideface issues with a defective crown. This is a 1d stamp, BW 82 (SG 125) from Plate 2, Pane III, Position 45. In this case, the top of the cross on the crown slopes downwards from right to left.

First seen in 1915, the variety is on all issues to Final.

ACSC describes pane III as being on Plate 2.

Thanks, Frank. You are, of course, correct. Just one of my usual carelessnesses. I have corrected it.

Yet Another 1d green - BW 82(3)p (SG 125) with notch in top frame at left. Plate 3, Pane VI, position 40.

This is a stamp with a long history. The stamp at commencement in 1914 was retouched, resulting in a thinning of the GE in POSTAGE and thickened ends to the shading lines between the King's neck and a thinned oval border above these letters.

Now you can forget all that, because it has nothing to do with the BW 82(3)p variety.

In June 1928, new steel cliches were substituted for positions 34, 35 and 40, the position in question, all rolled in from Die I. In ACSC the Position 40 variety is noted for the nick in the top frame, close to the left corner. The D.M. Neil study identifies it by a slight thinning of the right green frame and a resulting widening of the white frame line. Both of these attributes are illustrated below. (The grey insert is of a more standard stamp to show the difference in the margin width.)

Hi,
I am missing the 4 1/2 pence stamp and I want to buy it. I need your help to evaluate the decrease in value due to the state of the perforations. The stamp is MNH.
I think it's 1924 Scott # 35 (ASC # 76?) with two possible flaws.
Thank you for help.

All I can say at present is that it is Die I (Thin letters of value. watermark), BW 118D but the variety is not listed in ACSC. The ACSC catalogue value for MNH is AuD 125. If I were actively collecting, the perf would definitely put me off.

In mid December, I will be able to get in touch with contacts in a UK group to see if they can plate this example. We do this over Facebook (UGH!) who have barred me from opening new topics for 30 days even though they say I have no violations. Facebook support really sucks.

Frank.

Thank you itma.
Australian stamps rarely appear for sale in Romania and that's why I think I'll buy it (the price is $ 1 and no one has bid)
I also noticed a white spot above I in AUSTRALIA. I'll put better pictures when I have it.
George

George:

At $1, you can't go far wrong.

There is another feature which may or may not be constant: a small coloured line in the margin, just below the bottom left corner.

Another Die II 1d BW 92 (SG 96), this time from Plate 3, Right Pane, Position 52. This stamp has an impressive split vertically down the right frame, starting at the top.

Hi, Al:

I've only got a small percentage of that. Probably about 700, mainly 1d and 1 1/2d. My father got these in the 1940s and 50s as kiloware and only did an initial weed out apart from the obvious varieties, mainly as per ACSC back then.

Why don't you add some of your varieties to this topic?

Frank.

Respectfully disagree
Hickey, pimple, or Druckzufalligkeit.

Going by the halo.

Apart from that, a fabulous stamp.
