GB GV Downey Heads Part II

Hello, well judging by the enormous (Not) email response this may not be a hot topic :-) but I will continue anyway.

First the stamps shown last night. There were 8 different stamps. Some poeple have suggested to me that it must surely be boring collecting only two stamps. One green one (the 1/2d) and one red one (the 1d). But I find this issue so interesting. So stay with me :-) but if you do think it boring write me and I'll talk about something different OK. ( I do collect other stamps but this is my speciality)

First the watermarks, there are three; - Imperial Crown, Simple Cypher and Multiple Cypher.

How important are these. Well just look at SG 327, SG 329 and SG 336. (see last nights posting for actual stamps) Using my SG Concise for 2007 (latest I have) you would be happy to find a SG 336 in a Downey Head lot I would think. I know there are different Dies and other varieties but at this stage I am trying to keep it simple for my less experienced readers

Next, tomorrow or as soon as I can, the varieties including watermark varieties, and the dies.
Enjoy your stamps .. Best wishes .............. Michael

There are actually thirteen numbered varieties in the specialized plus several interesting minor varieties such as the several that do not show a "Cross" on the crown.
Then there are shades.
I have most of them and haven't added to that page in years. If I can get a decent scan of the Downey heads I will post it.

Thanks Charlie, Yes I have not gone into that detail here but you are correct of course.

If anyone is interested I give you this link to my website page which gives you the 1/2d Downey Head collection I submitted to a GBPS competition a few years back. 15 pages shwoing all teh varieties.. bar a few I cannot find or afford :-)

Best wishes ....Michael

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra and Analogs[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
