Watermark Inverted
ACSC 2(A)a CV: $50

Keep checking those watermarks !
Sideways Wmks have the big bikkies .... $450

PS: Finding a "slogan postmark" on a 1d Roo is scarce,
if you find one with part impression, let us know so I can decipher it.

Also don't discount any "Dumbell shaped smudged" Pmks
They could be The Dardenelles (Anzac Cove)

Very impressive! Thanks for sharing Pat

Had to laugh at the knitting pattern Rod. I asked the wife but she politely declined

Looking at the second SG2 again, I think it may be a CTO. It has full gum NH on the back. If so, I've probably looked at it 20 times and not put 2 and 2 together

I didn't find any slogan cancels in my 1d duplicates, but these three could be of interest:


I like the way that Tasmania goes from taller letters to smaller, then back to taller. Do you have a scan of an entire with this cancel?

The second is Ross, Tasmania, dated November 20, 1913. This is a very small town, so scarce ???

The last one is an interesting smudge. Any ideas?

Bib: Tasmania: Postal History and Markings (Campbell,Purves and Viney 1962)

1. Not seen before, I would be writing to the Hobart Phil. Soc. on that one
not in any images I have in my catalogues.
Perhaps not a continuous roller canceller die ?

2. ROSS (Need more time to learn how to read the catalogue)
Looks like the second allocation of Obliterators (Fig 66 Loose Pmk pages)

Located in the image, Take centre of Tasmania as a clock
ROSS is at 3 o'clock

3. Suggest an EFO printing variety / smudge from a continuous roller machine cancellation.
(You can see it occurring in your Die 2A image Right hand stamp)

ROSS Pmk
Appears common, notes from 1832

Postmasters and Postmistresses :
1899-1904 = Miss J.E.Hall
1905 E. Richards
1906-1912 Miss E. Haines
(Compiled by Geo. R. C. Searles)

Yours, from a cursory read is
ROSS (O) (here I presume O = Office
Scope
"PO in operation 1900-1912 Their CDS (Circular date stamps)

Type 1 CDS (with stops)
Date in two lines, day an month in centre,, the year (usually in 2 figures) beneath.
They were of state origin

Also noted in BLUE 1907 and 1909

PS: ROSS also appears as a Barred 77 numeral on Tassie stamps

Was there a law that you could not affix a KGV stamp on envelop upside down?

(SG35) w/scratch


ACSC 2013 5, 6, 7, (2)e (2)= lower plate

Depending on the stamp ID CV : $60- $125

Note:
As I read it, not a "scratch" It is a cracked Plate
You need the stamp below it to form a cracked plate pair.
Ideally a block of 4
The crack begins in the 2d circle and goes North to Adelaide over the 2 stamps.


Corrections welcomed.

(Top of Cape York) Known, or "one of" ?

Thanks for sharing your postmarks Patg23 - some nice strikes.
That broken value circle on the Kangaroo stamp, ACSC 4(K)h, is quite a spectacular flaw.
