I just sent a quick note and picture to Geoff Kellow. He sometimes replies ... we'll see. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Exactly.

This flaw is already known as constant and simply has not been selected to be included in the current BW ACSC catalogue.

This is the case with many of the known (and previously published) constant flaws - only some of them are selected to be included in the ACSC catalogue and more of those (or new discoveries) are added over time if the editor considers them worthy of catalogue status.

In this case, "Lower frame notched upward below Y of PENNY - 1932 to final (VII, 16)" has been known to be constant (at least) since the publication of 'The 1D King George V Australian Commonwealth Stamps Surface Printed Types 1914 to 1937 - A Study by D. M. Neil' in 1947.

Thanks, Fairdinkum. I have ordered a copy of that book from the U. K.

Frank.

Well, maybe this one will be added since it is so similar to the others and it is an obvious item. Thanks for adding all of the information.

And now for something completely different - after yesterday's excitement.

BW 101(4)i
Variety: Central bar of second E in PENCE deformed
perf 13 x 12 comb
Wmk: Type 5 Small Multiple
Position: Plate 4, left electro, position 55 (4L55)

This one of the very few varieties I have in MUH condition.



Here's an enlargement of the variety with the central bar of the E sloping up to the right, alongside the normal.

Another one.

BW 109j
Variety: Rotouched S.W. corner
Perf: 13 x 12 comb
Wmk: Type 6 Multiple Crown CofA
Position: Plate 8, left electro, position 11 (8L11)

Only two plates were used for this issue, Plate 7 and 8 each having left and right electros.




There seems to be considerable variability in the S.W. corner of this issue as per close ups of other copies I have. I take the top middle and lower left to be the normal case. The two on the left and the centre bottom could be 109j.

Here is something else quite different.

BW 71Big (No SG equivalent) The B is the BW code for colour - Bright Red for 71
Variety: Bigger than the average
Perf: 2.9850746269 x 2.4390243902
Watermark: That's not water its a white wine mark
Position: My stamp room wall



This stamp has a perfect offset on the rear.



This is a bit of nonsense that I threw together in 1980. It is, of course a hooked wool rug, 1.16m wide by 1.32m high. To get the design to align with the grid of the canvas, I needed to adapt every 3 lines of background shading on the original to two rows of hooked wool. In spite of this, it came out not too bad.

Now that is pretty neat. I can see why you are so interested in KGV Sideface Varieties. I'll post some more soon.

It's the other way around. I did the rug because my father had instilled in me an interest for the KGV Sidefaces way back in the middle of the last century.

That's a great rug itma!

Looks like it might be one of the 'rough paper' issues with the added bonus of 'Kangaroo's tongue out'

Two contributions today. First is:

Scott 24
ACSC BW 85(3)h, "HAl.FPENCE"
Issued April 1919
Perf 14.25 x 14 comb
Position 3L26





Second is a very hopeful, "HALEPENCE", or "HALF.PENCE". There is no listing in ACSC for this item as a Scott 24b. There is a version known of HALEPENCE for a different color, though, and not quite the same. Anyway, posted for your enjoyment.

2d Scarlet KGV Die I

BW 96C(10)f (SG 63)
Variety: White spot after "2" at right
Perf: 14.25 x 14
Wmk: Type 2 Second watermark (SG type 5)
Position: Electro 10, right pane, position 40 (10R40)




I don't often add the colour suffix (in this case "C") as I have quite a bit of trouble with the fine distinctions in shades ACSC makes. In this case, I is very much scarlet. SG describes this stamp as bright rose-scarlet.

This variety could well be regarded as poor inking and thus overlooked as a variety.

BW 96(C)(13)g (SG 63 variety not listed)
Variety: white flaws in top frame over right wattles and diffue white flaw on kangaroo. The flaw on the kangaroo is not always present.
Perf: 14.25 x 14
Wmk: Type 2 second watermark (SG Type 5)
Position: Electro 13, right pane, position 60 (13R60)

I would appreciate help on this one - a 1d red, BW 89. The biggest problem is that there are 22 electros for this denomination. I have looked through the ACSC illustrations but didn't see it. As I have two copies of this variety, it would appear to be constant.

Can anyone provide a position for this variety?

BW 89 (SG 77)
Variety: right frame broken just above emu - not listed
perf: 14.25 x 14
Wmk: Type 2 second watermark (SG Type 5)
Position: ?

I found a reference, but no picture, in "An Introduction to the Study of the King George V 1 1/2d Die 2 Stamps of the Commonwealth of Australia." This is by Gordon Ward, MD (London), but I don't see a Publish Date.

He uses an interesting grid to lay things out:


Your break would be located in Sector 15. It's an angular cut, so maybe 35?:


Of course, this could be completely wrong, but I tried ...
