CR47
Breaks in shading below Albany


Adams, Bell and Pope describe it as

"Shading below Albany: break in line 5, 1.75mm from left frame. Not in earlier printings".

I would add, and possibly not in later printings. However, Sluman does list the flaw.

No image available.

Breaks in shading above and left of Tasmania, and later breaks in shading right of Cape York


In early printings shading breaks occurred above and left of Tasmania - first stamp. Later, another shading break occurred to the right of Cape York - second stamp.

Lower Plate D

Plate D, like plates E and F, is composed of Die II clichés. It was in commission for a very short time in January 1913. Accordingly, material is in short supply and the number of identified flaws is limited.

Plate D was paired to the upper plate A.

Adams, Bell and Pope make the following comment. “It is an unsolved mystery as to why Plate D and Plate A were retired so early and, barring a major accident it could have simply been that the 480-on plate was too large to work with and Cooke decided to break it down into a 240-on plate for all future printings. Cooke then cut the plate up for additional postal stationary, electrotypes and substitutions.

Plate D clichés are distinguishable from the clichés on the other Die II plates. Die II exists in two sub states on these plates. The second sub state has breaks in the first shading lines above and below N of ONE. The first sub state does not have these breaks.

Plate D clichés are of the first sub state (no breaks). Plates E and F are of the second sub state (with breaks).

Bellow are two stamps. The first is from plate D, the second is from plate F. Plate D has no breaks. Plate F has breaks.

Plate D

------------------------
Plate F

=====================
Plate D

Plate F

The diagram below shows the positions of individual clichés on a plate of 120 units. The plate comprises left and right panes divided by a central gutter. The positions of the watermarks (POSTAGE, etc.) shown on the diagram are reasonably accurate. Being a lower plate, Plate D has printer monograms (not shown in the diagram).
.
.
Plate D.jpg
.
.
Clichés shaded have no known constant printing flaws. Clichés without shading have constant printing flaws, with some flaws having more than one state. The numbering of stamps is conventional.

Constant varieties identified in the Australian Commonwealth Specialist Catalogue (2017) (ACSC) are indicated by the lettering used in the Catalogue. Thus, for example, the cliché at position L20 has the letter d, meaning that this is the position of the ACSC-listed flaw 3(D)d. Note that the ACSC identifiers start at d and run to h.

The positions of constant flaws and their descriptions come from the following sources:

Adams, D., B. Bell, G. Pope (2004), 1d Red Kangaroo and Map Series, published by the authors.

Kellow, G.N. (ed.) (2017), The Australian Commonwealth Specialists’ Catalogue: Kangaroos, Brusden-White.

Sluman, J (1992), The 1913 Penny Kangaroo Flaw List, published by the author.

Breaks in shading above and left of Albany


"Shading above and left of Albany: breaks near the left ends of lines 2, 4, 9, 11 and 12, 0.75mm from left frame."

The stamp below is owned by Stampboard member david3461. It shows the breaks in the right position, and is certainly an early-state Die II. It's not totally convincing, but is included in the absence of anything better.

GR55 is one of four substitutions discovered on the 1d red plates. All four are substitution of Die II stamps from a cut up of Plate D. It has been shown that the substitution at GR55 is from DR15.

"Shading to right of value circle: 0.25mm break in line 9 up at junction with circle."

Upper Plate E

Plate E, like plates D and F, is composed of Die II clichés. It was in commission for a relatively long time between February 1913 and February 1914.

Plate E was paired to the lower plate F.

Plate E clichés are relatively late-stage Die II clichés, and hence have breaks in the first shading lines above and below N of ONE. The only exception is for the substitution E25 which does not have those breaks and is thought to come come from the cut-up plate D.

The diagram below shows the positions of individual clichés on a plate of 120 units. The plate comprises left and right panes divided by a central gutter. The positions of the watermarks (POSTAGE, etc.) shown on the diagram are reasonably accurate. Being an upper plate, Plate E has no printer monograms.
.
.
Plate E.jpg
.
.
Clichés shaded have no known constant printing flaws. Clichés without shading have constant printing flaws, with some flaws having more than one state. The numbering of stamps is conventional.

Constant varieties identified in the Australian Commonwealth Specialist Catalogue (2017) (ACSC) are indicated by the lettering used in the Catalogue. Thus, for example, the cliché at position L20 has the letter d, meaning that this is the position of the ACSC-listed flaw 3(E)d. Note that the ACSC identifiers start at d and run to h.

The positions of constant flaws and their descriptions come from the following sources:

Adams, D., B. Bell, G. Pope (2004), 1d Red Kangaroo and Map Series, published by the authors.

Kellow, G.N. (ed.) (2017), The Australian Commonwealth Specialists’ Catalogue: Kangaroos, Brusden-White.

Sluman, J (1992), The 1913 Penny Kangaroo Flaw List, published by the author.

"(a) Left inner frame: break 12.25mm down from upper frame.

The strip of three shown below is from positions EL4, EL5 and EL6. The last two have no recorded constant flaws. In this strip, EL4 seems to have none of the flaw markers noted above. Hence the strip is probably from an early printing.
