A question from Dr John Gledhill of the GB Overprints Society -- can anyone help?

Quote:
Can you point this puzzle please to some member of GBPS who knows about the GB KG6 “Victory” issue.

There is an ambiguous note in the SG specialised catalogue that cylinder 4 of the Victory issue is known with a vertical line in the margin below 20/1 (early printings) or without it (later ones); unfortunately it is not clear whether this refers to the dot or nodot cylinder, nor in fact whether it refers to the 2½d or 3d value.

As I would like to know which it is to complete a list of known flaws on “Tangier” overprints, any help would be extremely useful. I’ve only got scans of the “Tangier” overprints, not the unoverprinted issue, and so far no sign of a “vertical line”.

Scans would of course be especially handy, but any info would be useful.

Hello,

Herewith scans of 3d cylinder 4 no dot showing the vertical line.
Ignore the arricator on the second block (another variety)
Stamps are not the best quality I am afraid but at least it show the variety.

Hope this helps.

Regards
Ron

Please convey our hearty thanks to Ron “earsathome”, who is Ron in Queensland (I googled his website…)
Very many thanks indeed.
It might be worthwhile somebody pointing out to SG how that comment in the SG specialised could be corrected and improved – it’s been like that for many years.
Regards

Hi John,

No worries. Glad to be of help.

We collectors should stick together, and with all the resources available in the GBPS
there should be very few questions unanswered.

Regards

Ron.
