Wow!
Thank you very much Collin.

More 2d blues, mutilated cover piece
Handstruck registration CLONCURRY
(evident registration was the 5 pence)





Now, if you think some of your Queensland stamps are bruised,
some journeyed in cane baskets

The CLONCURRY Mail buggy.



...and they suffered heat exhaustion.....

Hi Rod. Found one Queensland in my collection of some significance.
Can you help identify? Watermark is 68 (Crown and Q) and sideways, but
I can only find one, not two as described for the 1882 issue. Is it
possible to only have one watermark? Thanks.

Also, not the prettiest example, but interesting Postal Fiscal Stamp.
(Hole in the middle ... Oh well.)

In regard to Queensland watermarks, Scott's 68 appears to match Stanley Gibbons' #6, for the most part. Scott doesn't seem to list a match to SG #5. (Two-part crown versus three-part crown.)

I'm sure I'm just missing something, and I should look again.

5/- Queensland Rose
This is a SG Type 9
comes with 3 watermarks

As far as I can see only wmkd twice
It can only be one of 3 possibles

It has to be one of 3 wmks
now it is up to you to determine the correct one
Give me the wmk num and we'll have your stamp

Update: If it is only wmkd once
then it has to be 1886 wmk 10 CV = GBP28 (1993) SG159


wrong again
If the wmk is sideways, HAS to be SG154 (wnk5) or SG163 (wmk6)
(clue) SG 163 is thin paper

OK, last ones that I found. Here is Victoria, 1899, Perf 12 1/2 and
watermarked. The first stamp is Imperf, no watermark, so I'm assuming
that it is a Proof. Any comments?

What to look for ?
Perf 12 = $12


Postmark 131 = Gladstone.


Rod,

Think you might have a typo here, or am I lost in the translation?

Yes it's mutilated stationery cut out
halfpenny probably newspaper wrapper?
don't recognise the part pmk.
Proofs generally do not get postmarked.

Rod,

Well, it IS watermarked sideways, only one watermark visible. It is
closest to #5 in your examples, though reversed when viewed from the
back. I only have the Scott catalog, but your help is appreciated.

Very interesting.
1. Looks like it was postmarked, the hammer was out of ink and gave a poor strike, it was re inked and re applied.

2. Revenues were often placed on a "spike" on a clerks desk
a hole is no never mind to the true philateslist

1871
no wmk
Barefoot 22, 2/6d orange
eng by william knight of brisbane, litho by govt printer
sheets 120
background lines have value in words? (close up please?)
P13
exist with and w/o burele band
CV GBP 2.5

1873
same design no burele band
wmk crown Q
perf 12 or 13

SG watermarks are drawn as seen from the front of the stamp.

Well we'll assume SG154 1882 P12 wmk5 thin paper
CV 1993 GBP 45 / GBP 22 used.

Bearing in mind, I assume a fiscal cancellation
that affects price I guess.
(I am learning as well :)

engraver h bourne
recess govt printer bris, from BW plates.

Nice stamp, look forward to getting the set.

Thanks for all your help so far Rod. My Scott Specialized has pictures
of watermarks, but all reversed, meaning shown from the back, so sorry
for my confusion.

The Postal Fiscal closeup is shown below and definitely has lettering
in the background. Perf 13, and I cannot locate the Watermark.
