Very interesting. I'm glad it survived for so long.

Hi Partime

I'm very fortunate to get this block, as I couldn't believe the near destruction of the two stamps at left. The bottom stamp is nearly gone.

Rob. So I need you to explain the plate that was used for this variety. And, I assume, this is the No Watermark variety?

Hi Partime

It is the no watermark issue, currently the plate is unknown to me, I am in the process of writing a book on the 1938-1966 half-penny kangaroo, it's errors and varieties, hopefully I'll find the plate during my research if it is possible.

Hi Aussie Al

I know, they had a half-sheet and separated them into various blocks, if you look on the website you will notice they have a block of 16 as well that is identical. I buy all my stamps from the Juzwins. Some are identical, others are not.

I bought some very valuable items from them, and every possible variety of the half-penny kangaroo (1938-1966) so I can add them to a book I am currently writing in relation to the issues and varieties of this particular stamp, many in complete progressive states.

I have over 4,000 of these stamps that belonged to a project that took the authors of an earlier book (incomplete) over 50 years to complete, I intend to complete the task with the equipment I have that did not exist back in the 50s and 60s, I won't be infringing on any copyright issues as I own the rights to the copyright.

The equipment to finish the project is a special microscope, various illuminated magnifying glasses, specific software and a large 32 inch monitor to enlarge the images to see the variety in detail.

I bought that project from the Juzwins as well, I won't buy from anyone else.

This very scarce strip of 8 1949 half-penny kangaroos with no watermark shows dry inking affecting the three stamps at left. The first two stamps showing an extreme variation of ink stripping.

Hi Everyone,
This is my first post!

I have some of these orange kangaroos. I have a block of 48 with no watermark. A block of 10 with a watermark. A strip of 4 with no watermark and a block of 32 with no watermark. What should I be looking for to determine the year of if they're of any value. Thank you and I look forward to your help as I've got a lot of stamps and not sure where to start.

Hi JayGee

The half-penny roo without the watermark is from 1949-1966, the half-penny roo with the watermark is from 1938-1942.
You would need to buy the ACSC (Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue) to know what variety is scarce, rare etc., not all varieties have a commercial value.
Or you could post your stamps that you may think are of value and I will be able to assess whether or not the stamp has any value.
Also, with the half-penny roo, the stamp would need to be mint unhinged and with a well-centred border (with a rare stamp it will still remain rare if cancelled, the value though would be much less, and in the extremely rare case, rarer on cover).
On very rare stamps where it is difficult to impossible to obtain such a stamp in well-centred condition, the off-centred stamp has no impact on the value.
I have a block of 4 1938 roos with a very early plate crack, the only plate crack of it's type in existence and is extremely rare and of high commercial value.
With low value stamps it is not easy to find rare stamps.
