I need some help with the Australia 1992 Threatened Species #1271-1295.

Scott lists several different perfs, printing methods, panel colors, minor numbers.

Does someone have some scanned examples or tips for sorting these?

Thanks.

As far as I can figure gummed stamps are perf 14x14.4 ,Peel & stick are die-cut in rolls of 100 & 200 + Booklets

Looks like there was up to 6 reprints of booklets & strips.

Hope this is some help.

My knowledge is limited but here goes -
Three versions printed
1. printed se-tenant 100 per sheet
2. phosphorised self-adhesive 100-200 per roll
3. phosphorised printed in booklets

There are around 49 stamps in the current set that I know of,
(includes koala counts)

Your main objective is to sort the 3 basic "perforation" styles.

1. Typical Standard Perforation
2. Snap Print (SNP) (Printset)
3. Pemara



Snap Print (Diecut)



Pemara (Diecut)

Outstanding display pages Rod222, very impressive. In browsing I have found a display of your pages and am currently enjoying having a look.
For me, I spend time searching various folders etc to find anything I have (and always miss something) haha.

Also, I have to say, the way of adding images to these posts is well thought out and should end loss of pictures which result in rather useless threads.

Here are a couple more of the Threatened Species varieties - counter printed stamps.

Note - second post in a row.
Referring to my previous post with the counter printed stamps - for those not aware these stamps are twice the size of the usual Threatened Species set.

Rod222, in relation to your coil self-adhesive message lables - here's another one...

There are 5 basic sets of the Threatened species stamps. And countless reprints.

1) Sheet stamps perf 14. The 1koala reprint is on CPL paper but I have no idea what that is & my catalogue doesn't elucidate


That's the easy one, now the fun begins.

ALL stamps not perf 14 are self-stick coil/booklet stamps & there are four sets of these, all with helecon coatings, we'll start with the two easy ones. If you don't have the correct light for these all is not lost. You can see the coatings by holding the stamp up to a light at a shallow angle - move the stamp from horizontal with your eye, to a slight angle.

2) Vertical band covering the right half of the stamp. You can make this out on the two left scans of the wallaby & pygmy possum


3) Horizontal bands on the upper & lower white areas plus helecon in the shape of the animal of the stamp. Don't get confused with the last two groups which are all-over helecon. With the all-over you're going to see a difference in printing between the animal part & the upper & lower areas, but the horizontal bands/animal really jumps out particularly looking at it at an angle.


If you've got a typically perfed coil stamp & it shows no bands or animal coating, then you've got an all-over coating

4) All-over helecon coating, letter-press coarse printing


5) All-over helecon coating, litho fine printing


You're going to need a good magnifying glass for this, x15 should be fine. The printing dots in the coarse version are much larger than in the fine.

Here's two samples, coarse on the left, fine on the right



Around this period I had access to several offices which saved me their clippings, wonderful stuff. I gave up on Australia in 1994, just too much wallpaper. I haven't looked at this stuff for years but I notice that I have one stamp mis-labelled, it's replacement is drying even as we speak

YeaPolska, thanks for all the information and images, my stamps for this period are all on paper in zip-lock bags. I will have to dig out a uv light bulb and go through them at some stage to see what's what. (Like 99% of my stamps).

Rod222
"....On 21 June 1993 a further type of self-adhesive label was introduced which incorporated Threatened Species designs... with the machine-printed face value and code. Possible face values of these labels ranged from 45c to $9,999.99. This was subsequently restricted to a top value of $100.
The labels were available at the National Philatelic Centre, Melbourne, showing code "NCP1" and were subsequently available from Canberra Parliament House (ACT 93, CPH1) and Royal Exchange, Sydney (RX1)"

So you could say 49 and counting..... Erk!

Fabulous, thanks for that info......

I have the "Australian Variations" catalogue (somewhere), I'll dig that out and see if
further information is to hand.

Thanks Castor.
Note: These are "Australian Wildlife" not "Threatened Species"

NPC = National Philatelic Centre.

I have located a link to "Threatened Species" (A collecting challenge) here..........
