The specialized catalogue includes individual specimen entries for varieties of stamps listed together; for example, L8 (S.G. O9c/O10b) exists in four combinations of color and paper but only three of them bearing specimen overprints are listed. From this I assume the unlisted variety, L8(3), is not known to exist with a specimen overprint. I would like my assumption confirmed or corrected, as the case may be.

In another case, the matter isn’t as clear. The 1/2d. official stamp, L1 (S.G. O1/O2), is listed in two shades but the specimen entry L1s does not list them both. How am I to know if both shades of the stamp exist with a specimen overprint or only one does and, if so, which one? I purchased one copy identified to me as O2s years ago and just purchased another identified as O1s but the shades are the same! I don’t want to repeat this experience.

Unfortunately I do not have the specialised knowledge you seek. You mention SG however and I wonder if you have queried it directly with their Catalogue Editor or member of their GB team? Am sure its worth a try. :) ;)
