Shown are 3 varieties, the dropped last "E" of "SPECIMEN" and the small last "E" of "SPECIMEN". There is an Ash variety of the dropped "E" but I do not have that particular stamp in my collection of Coronation stamps at the moment.
A little history relating to the Coronation 10/- SPECIMEN; this overprint was first included in collector's sets about August 1942. The overprint was made on blocks of 20 stamps; two printings were made totaling 16,720 stamps. A number of blocks exist, including at least two forms of 20. These multiples derive from complete sheets sold to the Miller Bros., Melbourne stamp dealers.
This means that 20 stamps of each variety exist in both the Ash and McCracken printings.

They're among the most elegant KG6 stamps from Australia.

Nice display Rob!

Hi Bobby De La Rue

Thanks. It's true about the elegance of these coronation issues. Now it seems there are some very interesting varieties such as the dropped "E" and small "E" with the 10/- issues.

I noticed that the varieties would be impossible to identify so I used my microscope to enlarge the varieties.

My wife walked in and saw 'Men Men Men'. This used to be my safe hobby and now I have some explaining to do.
