Can anybody help me? Is this steel blue? I know it is difficult to determine a colour via PC!

hello! asmodeus. I have posted a steel blue shade in the bradbury section of my photo gallery. It would appear from your scan that it is Dull Grey - blue N71.2. the c.d.s. date on your copy is 1929.
Steel blue is usually from around 1932 - 1934 and placed last in the listings.

Recently I got this 5 Shilling Bradbury and I noticed that the "5" is splitted. Could it be an error or only a eventuality?

This illustrated printing flaw on a Bradbury stamp is better known on De La Due. I am not entirely sure how these came about,but strongly suspect they had a lot to do with plate wear and the over-aggressive removal of excess ink from the plate prior to printing. This combination produced the blank arears found in the denomination ,and occasionally in the descriptive lettering below. These flaws are not constant,but yield some interesting varieties.

The Bradbury 5/- on Plate 1/2--ribbed paper. Does anyone know whether the January '21 printing was the one that included ribbed paper? Or was it another printing. Given that the 2/6 on ribbed paper appeared in early '21 (I have recorded April), it is likely that the 5/- was printed at about that time as well. Any idea of what proportion the ribbed paper accountsd for of this printing, or of the use of this plate, or of the entire Bradbury production of this value? What dates do others have for this variety. I have only one that is dated--15 Sept. '22. I ahve another that was used in Constantinople, so it was used before Sept. '21, since the office used overprinted stamps once they arrived in August '21. Thanks for any info/insights.

Could you throw some light on this item for me. It's 4" by just over 5" it's on card. The print is stunning. Not sure if it is a Plate Proof. or it's value if any.
Regards
Pete

I've seen this or something very similar at a show. If like what I saw, which had a fuzzy impression, this is not an official die impression but a replica of some sort. The one I saw was not an engraving but an offset print, using ink that sits above the surface, like some business cards. It's interesting that the perforations are reproduced as well as the stamp itself. As to value, who knows?

Bit late on this one - sorry. Looks to me as if it could be a 'mounted' version of one of the notorious 'Maryland Forgeries' - anyone else any thoughts ?
