Here is a variety in SG633, but not listed by Stanley Gibbons, the National Stamp Week miniature sheet.



The miniature sheets were printed, eight to a full sheet, as shown in the following diagram. The variety occurs in Position G.



When looking at stamps at the dealer in the main Eatons store in Montreal, I was lucky enough to find four copies, one after the other, with this variety in his stock. I presume this this is an indication that the miniature sheets were sliced out of the full sheet sever al sheets at a time.

Hi Itma,

Yes this Variety is listed the Australian Commonwealth Specialist catalog (my copy is in a box somewhere) and also in Australian Decimal Varieties by David MCcleary I will reply when I have more information.

1980 ACSC

First time I have encountered "Autotrons"

I have this issue in booklet form (which does not attract a Catalogue listing)

Rod:

It's a bit odd that ASCS shows the printing layout inverted. Also, the autotrons and the registration marks are in a different location.

Frank.

For those who are wondering, the autotrons, sometimes called colour bars, were used by APO's Chambon printing press to adjust the position as the paper was fed from colour to colour. The Chambon printing press was fed paper from a roll and it also guillotined and perforated the sheets as the paper went through.

I bought one at the time from the Woden Post Office in Canberra and recognised it from your image immediately. Here's mine.

In one of my few philatelic pieces of luck, I looked through the stock of a dealer (in the main Eatons store in Montreal, and came up with four copies of this variety on the 1976 stamp week SS variety.

This flaw is listed in my 1981 ACSC as "Nick in brown band under ra". Someone with an up to date ACSC Decimals should be able to give details of current listing.

SG is of no use on Australian flaws as it generally lists only the very expensive ones.

These booklets are not listed as they were not official issue. They were the product of the Australian Stamp Promotion Council for National Week.

Frank

Hi langtounlad

I agree with you, I recently bought the latest SG (have been out of stamps for many years) for Australia, hoping to see something in the decimal section for constant flaws at least. My very old 41st edition ACSC at $1.99 when I bought it so many years ago and I understand is now a massive 10 volume set by Brusden-White, is far more informative. Far more informative.

Weird huh, I read your NCP1, thought that's wrong, checked, yep wrong and then went ahead and did the same thing. Must be a brain thing... (I haven't done it again have I?)

I was erecting perimeter fencing yesterday,
Came in , took out the Orange Juice from the fridge, poured a glass,
and for some unknown reason, put it in the overhead china cabinet.

Came in later and spent 10 minutes looking for it..........
I thought I was going nuts when I couldn't find it (It's a worry)

Where's that orange juice?
It's one of the tangents from "I walked into the room to do... saw/thought of something and left the room.... now what was I doing"

Well now, there's a coincidence.

I also have four with the variety
and also seven with the Autotron marks?.

Cheers
Ron.
