Re: Information on KEVII 4d. with Queen Victoria -White 4- variety

Wiseman reports in his 'DLR Years' that the white 4s are not what he calls true plate varieties but due to print room problems in make-ready. He writes in QV context but he also studied Jubilees through KEVII. Many QV Jubilee varieties run on through KEVII. Back to white 4s: I have seen many QV 4d a...

Re: Victoria Jubilee issue layout

Further to the 4 1/2d which I do not doubt the above, not all Jubilees were printed in this format. SG 16th reports (page 255) that the 320 set sheet was for 4d, 4 1/2d, 9d and 10d. I can confirm the panes are 4x5=20 for the 4d. However the 2d value is different. These were printed 240 set and issue...

Peter sounds very interesting. I have some "C8A" too but most only got certs as C8 due to "traces" of blueing. Its a tricky one. Would be something if your results were consistent for blueing traces or not. C8A is not catalogued for shades so interesting what your study comes up ...
