Scott #2   1855

Two Pence - Imperf

Dull Carmine

Misplaced  Entry

This is a lovely misplaced entry of a full mm downwards. There is a strong downwards shift of the design showing most clearly in the lettering of SOUTH AUSTRALIA, but also through the lower half of POSTAGE and the upper corner boxes, as well as in TWO PENCE, the corner boxes and the margin below. There is also a delightful patch of doubling of the lower left portion of the Queen’s neck.

Scott #3   1855

Six Pence - Imperf

Deep Blue

Major Re-entry

This is a nice major re-entry with a shift to the left, showing most clearly in the lettering of SOUTH AUSTRALIA and also through SIX PENCE.

While the bluriness of the lettering might suggest a slip print, the clarity of the framelines of the stamp to the left and below  are suggestive of a re-entry instead to me.

Scott #9   1856

One Shilling Orange

Major Re-entry

This is a major re-entry on the entire design of this stamp. There is a strong upwards shift of the design showing most clearly in the lettering of POSTAGE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA and also through the top of and the upper corner boxes, as well as in ONE SHILLING and the corner boxes.

Again, as with the above TWO PENCE, the bluriness of the lettering might suggest a slip print, But the doubling of POSTAGE is very suggestive of a re-entry instead to me.
