Introduction

The aim of this thread is to have an online catalogue for the faults and flaws of the 5/- grey and yellow bi-colour Kangaroo.

The stamp was first issued on 20 March 1913. It is the first of the four bi-colour issues. The other three being the 10/- grey and pink, the £1 brown and blue, and the £2 black and rose.

Printed sheets were prepared by separate applications of the Vignette (Kangaroo) plate, and an appropriate Duty (map and value) plate. This produced a single sheet of 120 units in two panes of 60 (10 rows of 6 columns). On the Cooke printings, CA and JBC monograms were placed in lower margins under L57 and R58 respectively.

The duty plate units were all die II clichés.

The stamp was initially printed on first watermark paper by J.B. Cooke. The first watermark printing was replaced in August 1914 by a printing on second watermark paper. The first printing on third watermark paper by Cooke was made in December 1917, followed by further third watermark printings by T.S. Harrison, A.J. Mullett, and J. Ash. Subsequent printings occurred in August 1929 on Small Multiple Watermark paper and in June 1932 on CofA Watermark paper, both by J. Ash.

The printed shade varied from the official colour of grey and chrome to deep brownish-grey and yellow, to even a jet-black (aniline) and pale yellow (third only).

Catalogue numbes:
ACSC 42 (first watermark), 43 (second), 44 (third), 45 (small multi), 46 (CofA).
SG 13, 27, 42, 111, 135.

Key references:
the ACSC.

Original description

Kangaroo Plate:
1st Watermark: Normal(?).
2nd to C of A Watermark:
Two flaws: 1. Large variable shaped gouge in the top side of the Roo's snout
below brow. Well defined 'V' shape in NWPI example below but irregular and
blurred in Australian example below.
2. Left 1mm of background/grassy area in front of Roo missing resulting in
new left edge blurred. This area normally extends 3.8mm from tip of Roo's
foot; in reduced size it extends only 2.8mm.

Neither flaw is listed in the ACSC or Chapman's checklist. In the latter's
listing both the vignette (Roo) & duty plate are listed as "NORMAL".


Duty Plate:
Normal

2. Left 1mm of background/grassy area in front of Roo missing resulting in

3rd watermark to C of A watermark: The preceding Roo vignette has been
substituted with one showing no flaws.
Substitution is not listed in the ACSC or Chapman's checklist. In the latter's

Substituted vignette: note the notched snout and damaged left side of the grassy area have
disappeared. The new vignette has no identifiable flaws and neither does the duty plate. This
cliché can only be collected with a readily identifiable adjacent flawed stamp.
