Why are the second watermarks on Map&roo issues rarely well centred?

You will have to be creative to supply a pic Smiley

1924 period - Harrison was replaced by Mullet as printer and he used old plates and lacked experience at the time and times were such that paper used was surplus from War Savings stamps and wasn't all that good.
The toilet paper wasn't so good either at the time!

OOps! Sorry, I got carried away with my exuberance - just 1 point for Woody as no pic was supplied


Quote:
Towards the end of 1914, partly owing to war conditions, supplies of roo paper ran out. Supplies of the paper for the Georgian 1d stamp, first issued in July of that year, were used as a stop gap measure..

The Georgian stamps were wider, and the sheets were larger. Stamps printed on this paper are rarely well centred. Stamps at the inside edge of the pane were usually centred, the extra spacing between the watermarks gradually becoming more evident towards the outside of the pane, ultimately bisected by the perforation.

This paper was a medium white wove of fine texture, surfaced, supplied ready gummed. The 5/- bicolour was the first to appear on this paper, August, 1914, 6,000 sheets. Some other values were subsequently printed until July, 1915 when fresh supplies of a new Roo paper became available.

Note in the accompanying table the interesting observation that sufficient stocks on hand obviated the need to print, the ˝d, 4d, 5d until they were replaced by KGV stamps.

The shortages didn’t really bite until February 1915.

Rare but 'available' in both chalk-surfaced paper and 'normal' paper and printed with aniline based ink.

Yes correct - 2 points for Tony Smiley

PS - only the 10/- was printed with aniline ink and that's your pic.

"Yellow Mountain" is a mountain range composed of material that was uplifted from an ancient sea during the Mesozoic era, 100 million years ago. The mountains themselves were carved by glaciers during the Quaternary. Vegetation on the range is thickest below 1,100 meters (3,600 ft), with trees growing up to the treeline at 1,800 meters (5,900 ft).

The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly shaped granite peaks, hot springs, winter snow, and views of the clouds from above.  It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a major tourist destination.

I guess that I was a little too obscure. The answer was:

...

" ...(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.)
(Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.)

Well
(don't you come back no more.)
Uh, what you say?
(don't you come back no more.)
I didn't understand you
(don't you come back no more.)
You can't mean that
(don't you come back no more.)
Oh, now baby, please
(don't you come back no more.)
What you tryin' to do to me?
(don't you come back no more.)
Oh, don't treat me like that
(don't you come back no more.) "
