Australia-The 1913 Halfpenny (Green) "Kangaroo" Postage Stamp-Illustrated

Shown below is the 1913 issue of the Halfpenny stamp issued for the newly federated Australia. Until 1913 each Australian state had issued it's own stamps. Many of the stamps in the first issues show minor variations in Dies. Die 1 (of which this is an example) showed a small break in the inner frame line level with the top of the words denoting value. This was later repaired in Die 2.
