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.

Bumping this older thread. I just found this example in a box lot purchase. Heavily creased, but Mint. It appears to have a line across the neck, but this could also be a Ductor Blade. Any thoughts? (Color enhanced on close-up to better show the line.)

Not that I have sufficient printing knowledge to comment,
but I would have that as a "ductor blade" EFO.

Nice find Partime.

It looks like a Ductor Blade flaw to me, and would sit very nicely alongside ACSC 138(d):"Fine hairline across neck of swan (roller flaw)", in any collection.

It's the first I've seen since I've been looking!

Thanks for the replies. Just what I thought, but also wanted to check. Glad to see Black Swan back online, and always good to see Rod's informative replies.

Australia 1929 Centenary of Western Australia 1d Swan PLATE 7 [SG116/ACSC138zf] - WHITE FLAW R2/2. Does this look like a White Flaw or just a one-off abnormality? Appreciate some expert comment.

Opinion.
An EFO, albeit the scan quality is tough to ID accurately,
maybe a minor scuff etc.
Disturbance on the neck occurs but farther up, poss due to the re entry.
My opinion based entirely on the premise it would have been identified by now, if a plate flaw.

Lovely block of 4

Your line across the neck, identified here........

(Beats me how a roller flaw would create a horizontal line)

An interesting discussion continues.

Also looks like a one-off to me. A better scan in that area would be helpful.

I've re-read some of the literature attributed in this discussion. In the Billings documentation, he mentions type S-3c, Hair line (several varieties). This appears to match well with the later type S3f, Hair line, various. And, this also tends to match with Black Swan's example which mentions the three positions, Plate 12, stamps 21, 31 and 51. But, of interest, is that these are called hair lines and they are also referred to as roller flaws.

So, my Ductor Blade example still seems to be missing from the literature, as many other Ductor Blade varieties, I should note.

What I find interesting is the mention of a "Stop after Australia" in the Billing's documentation which now appears to have disappeared from ACSC. Perhaps that was also a one-off? Love to see an example of that one sometime.
