Another 1d Green BW 82 (SG 125), this time with the ACSC variety (2)i - Damaged right frame at top. Another characteristic of this variety, not mentioned in ACSC, is that the top of the crown slopes down from right to left. It is located on Plate 2, Pane IV, Position 6. This is a late variety, first appearing in 1936 so thus only appeared on BW 82..

Another well known 1d variety is "Ferns". Here is an example on BY 72(4)ia. The variety is named after the breaking of several shading lines between the upper peak of the white lower border line and the right value tablet. Not mentioned in ACSC is a second flaw - a small scratch line that breaks a number of shading lines between the base of the right wattle's stem and the right border. This is sometimes not visible in heavy inking situations. The stamp is located on Plate 4, Electro VII, position 54.

The original variety in this position was (4)i - scratch behind the emu's head - which appeared in 1915 on BW 70. Both varieties (4)i and (4)ia were present on BW 71. The position was re-entered in 1928 to correct the flaws.

I guess I've been falling behind. I have many, many more to add, but too little time in the day. This one is Scott 27, ACSC BW 95(U)h, known as Scratch over left wattles. There is an additional note in ACSC that states, "... are believed to be from the unplated portions of Electros 5 and 6, or the as yet undefined Electros 5A and 6A.

Issued 22 September, 1920.
Single Watermark (type 2)
Perf 14.25 x 14 comb
Possibly 454,730,040 stamps delivered into stock.



What I like about this variety, is that you can see it with the naked eye. Here is the catalog example.

Thanks, Rod. This is a lot of fun to do, though even I get fed up with 1d greens from time to time. I do seem to be very heavy on BW 81s And 82s. The index ended up to be a necessity, as much for me as anyone else. It makes it easy to cross reference the posts - going through even 8 pages looking for a previously posted variety is a pain in the neck.

Frank.

BW 82 (SG 125) - Short sloping white flaw in shading above L of AUSTRALIA (Variety not in ACSC)
Plate 3, Electro VI, Position 13
First seen in 1925 and exists in all subsequent Plate 3 printings. This flaw is also shown on Page 7 in BW 77 (http://goscf.com/t/74251&whichpage=7#665791). Please note that this previous stamp is BW 81ba Perf OS, not 81wd CTO Perf OS.

This stamp has a messy postmark which makes it difficult to see details. I have this added an arrow in the close up pointing to the flaw.

BW 71(4)k (SG 21c, variety not listed) - Distorted ONE PENNY
Plate 4, Electro VIII, Position 13
This variety is present on all issues of the 1d denomination.

The close up of the variety, from top to bottom, shows my example, a normal example (in greyscale) and the ACSC illustration of the variety.

BW 71(4)v - Run N in ONE. Also there is a cut in the lower frame close to the right corner which has caused the corner to be moved out towards the right.
Plate 4, Electro VIII, Position 60 (at bottom of the left-most column resulting in a margin line in the Crown/A watermark)
This is the first state which appeared from July 1914 to early 1917. (Plate 4 was not used for printings of BW 70, the first 1d Sideface.)

This position was retouched in early 1917 to become Variety (4)va and a make-ready correction was made sometime before July 1917. A final retouch - (4)vb - was made in March 1927 which existed for the rest of the 1d Sideface's life.

BW 82 1d Green (SG 86) - Nick in lower frame below E P of ONE PENNY. In the given example, there is also a break in the lower frame under the N of ONE. I do not know whether that is a constant for this variety.
Plate 1, Electro I, Position 16
This is a second state variety and appeared in one printing only in 1935 on BW 82 - Variety (I/16a).

The initial variety in 1928 was a thin bottom frame under NE P of ONE PENNY - (Variety (I/16)

A Final retouch in 1935 created an irregular lower frame - Variety (I/16R)

BW 98(12)k (SG 99) Die I - Broken top of cross on crown. I am a bit unsure about this one, but the spray of colour upwards from the crown seems to be reflected in the ACSC illustration per the image following the variety close-up below. Perhaps it is an early state. (It is a shame that ACSC uses halftone for its illustrations. I can make identification more difficult.)

Plate 12, Right Pane, Position 39 (12R39)

This variety is present on BW 96, 97 and 98 after which Dies II and III were used. The initial Die I printing (BW 95) did not use Plate 12.
