May I check if this is a late usage of a plate 12 penny red? Thank you :)

I think it is plate 61. But it could easily be 67.

Hello All

I have found 2 x QV 2d Blue stamps in some paperwork of my fathers - see above.
I have no knowledge about stamps and really need some help in identifying them to find out whether they have any value before I decide what to do with them.

I do hope this is the right thread to post on, if not please do move!

Thanking you in anticipation.
Debra
emason wrote: 23 Feb 2022 03:52 Hello Debra,
Your twopenny blue stamps:

The left one comes from plate 4 and its catalogue number is SG19. (small crown watermark, perforated 16)

The right one is from plate 5 and is probably SG34. (large crown, perforated 14).
If it has a small crown watermark then it is SG23A.

Given their visible condition, their value would be about £5 each.
Sorry to come in late on this but in fact both stamps are unit SH of plate 4 - together they make a perf 16/perf 14 matched pair.

The letter positions of SH between plates 4 & 5 has some similarities and the off-centre perf 14 example helps hide this, but while both plates have a part right side recut that on plate 4 is about twice as long as plate 5. Also plate 4 has a tiny extension of the right side at the top, that is seen on both the subject stamps. These features are marked up on the image below, taken from the registration sheets.

The final thing to remember is plate 4 was subject to lots of corrosion spots that are most noticeable in the letter squares, so when I see those dots around the H on the second stamp, that 'screams' plate 4 to me.

Sorry, Bill!

Scott

The image is too small to plate.
You would stand a better chance of a reply if you scanned the stamp at 600 dpi and cropped it so that only the stamp is showing.

I'll take a stab and suggest plate 167.

But Bill is right - a larger image is needed to confirm beyond doubt.

Hi all.
Thanks for your help previously.
I have six (6) new 1d Red imperforate that I need help in plating.

Thankyou to emason and pertinax -as usual someone can help. Now I have a question. If you right click on the image and then expand using the 'Zoom' icon doesn't that give a clear enough picture> I am still trying to master the larger image system as mine seem to work with some images and not with others-very annoying I can tell you.

Hello everybody. I was hoping that somebody might assist with this one. It is location HH, and I was thinking that it might be one of the early plates – number 5. Any help would be most welcome. Cheers, Tod. :)


UK 1841 definitive stamp. 1d. Red, HH, Plate unknown, maybe 5.

I would be happy to call that a plate 5.
In addition to the check letters, the weak NE corner and the slight extension to the base line eastwards point to plate 5.

Kilcockabu - Plating 1d imperfs is tough, even WITH great images.

Yours are all uncropped, very blurry and fuzzy really - hence no-one took the time I'd guess - the 'DF' one below from earlier in this thread really is the standard needed for free advice.

You can add images here at double the size you have oaded. I pay the hosting bills, and clarity is the KEY, which is why we allow such large images.

No idea what scanner you use, but most here use Canon Lide scanners - cheap, and superb for stamps.

YOUR 'HA' below in comparison, is just a fuzzy pink blur, as you can see.

I'd doubt that. Most 20 quid 3 in 3 jobbies produce far crisper images!

A Canon Lide is the go for sure as you can see from other scans here.

Brilliant -thanks Mr Mason. The desirability thing was... does the full MC (lovely though it is) cancel out the lack of profile which obviously is the result of said MC? I just wondered if there was some guidelines accepted by collectors. Anyway thanks again.

Thanks in advance - and apologies, this is the best image I have from the seller.

I think GK, and if so possibly plate 32 (which would be late use with 1844 cancellation), but a better scan required to be sure.

How much more valuable would a plate 11 be than the others- all else being equal as far as cond, centering/margins, etc?

Can someone assist with the plate number on this please?

A plate 11 black (which I assume you mean) is catalogued around 12x cheapest plate in VFU condition based on SG catalogue, i.e £4600 vs £375 for the most common plate.

Hello Joe,

A 1d red plate 11 is the cheapest of the 'black plate' reds at cat £130.

Your stamp looks like plate 101 to me - cat £35 in very fine condition (which yours isn't).

I don't think you will find plating information on 'Maltesex' for plate 101.
Best wishes,
Bill

I think 12, showing the small NE break.

Can someone assist with the plate number on this please?

The I looks very far to the right and I cant find a comparable one on Maltesex.

Hello Joe,

A 1d red plate 11 is the cheapest of the 'black plate' reds at cat £130.

Your stamp looks like plate 101 to me - cat £35 in very fine condition (which yours isn't).

I don't think you will find plating information on 'Maltesex' for plate 101.
Thank you
