Australia - 1914, 1p red King George V stamp

1p red King George V stamp, 1914 is a rare Australian stamp that was printed with a sideways watermark, which is now considered as its unique feature. The current world record for a King George V Penny Red stands at $41,041, after a mint block of four sold at a 2001 auction. Even before the flaw was detected, King George V Penny Red was one of the most collected stamps. Should the anonymous collector decide to sell this Australia`s rarity, he will definitely get around $100,000.

    • Print mistake, Water mark or defect make it valuable not the stamp itself unless only few pieces survived. you can verify any stamp for the defects all which listed online. if you are sure then only take it to valuator.

  7. I have many rare stamps available with me and most of them are listed here as rare stamps too. If you are interested I’m happy to email them for valuation process. Anyone interested please contact me through email – Charuthakannangara@

  8. Hi there,
    Wish to understand the water mark image illustration, the left image is the actual one which should be on both sides of this stamp.The flaw seems to be in the right image which is purely inverted.Its an inversion of the left image, isn’t sir.Please help and oblige.

    • Please check updated watermark picture
      these are different types of watermarks on the stamp and valuable one is with sideway watermark.
      if you have other type of watermark that has less value. there are many more types of watermarks than above 4


  9. wasn’t it the story about one of the “c”s fell off the original watermark die, and the guy welded it back on but the wrong way, therefore the rare watermark had the sideway wm with the backward “c”? looking like C^R
    and therefore there’s also the version with the inverted “backward” “c” on it?
    i believe i heard the version sold or valued at 100k was normal watermarked,sideway, “backward” “c” but the possibility of finding the inverted backward “c” is unknown? lol confusing az… I remeber being a young lad and my dad sitting me down and telling me about this one,long story short, I would like to know more about the mystery surrounding this item… and double check my own copies that are left 😎

    • These are very rare stamps because of errors or watermark, there are similar without it, common man think its the same so you have to certify before selling it.
