Hi All,
I came across a Scott#O6 or O16 5p Diadem, perf 10x11 that has me baffled as it appears to have a Queensland watermark Crown Over Q, Scott type 68.
Did NSW ever print these stamps on Queensland watermarked paper or are my eyes deceiving me?
Cheers,
Mick

NSW never printed any stamps on Queensland paper. This will be SG cat. no. O29b

The straight edge at the bottom makes me think the watermark is a marginal, ie: from the edge of the pane/sheet.

Thanks for the help! I'll get a better view of the watermark when my fluid gets in next week.
Cheers!

A very good call, Bobby. I can find no reference to this stamp on other than NSW paper.

Hi Again,
My watermark fluid came in, and I was mistaken, it is not a Queensland watermark, but it is not one mentioned in my Scott catalogue. It is a large double-lined O and U, inverted.
I've attached a (poor) picture of it for your consideration.
Cheers!

It's most likely a marginal watermark showing the "OU of new sOUth wales.

I agree with Steve,
I have not seen the dandy roll impression for NEW SOUTH WALES

Later dandy roll impressions had double lined text, such as
CROWN AGENTS FOR THE COLONIES
