Here's a neat one that scans well to see the features. This is Scott 103, ACSC 138, block of 4. I'll show a "normal" stamp, followed by the variety ACSC 1383, Re-entry to swan's neck and "T" of Australia.

Normal:


Re-Entry:


The most obvious feature is the re-entry in the "T" and how it clearly stands out. However, please note the marks in the "R" and the additional marks in the "W" of Western just below.


And, as described earlier, please note the extra curve in the swan's neck. There are also some extra marks in the upper back, just below the curved neck.


Note that there is also a slightly different Re-Entry, ACSC 138f that has lesser markings in the same places. If anyone has one of those, please post it. Thanks.

A beautiful example, Steve !
Lucky you.
A re-entry classic.

Never realised before, the designs either side, are of the "Kangaroo Paw" plant, a native of Western Australia.

Thanks for the comments. I like to search around for "different" items, and sometimes get lucky. I'd love to get a copy of the other re-entry of this issue to complete my page. Any ideas?

Partime said in his initial post on this topic:

"Note that there is also a slightly different Re-Entry, ACSC 138f that has lesser markings in the same places. If anyone has one of those, please post it. Thanks."

I don't have that one in my collection yet.

However, I do have ACSC 138(d) which is described as "Fine hairline across neck of swan (roller flaw)" which occurs on Plate 12, stamp numbers: 21, 31 and 51.
