Certificate (2009). S.G. 68. Photo
Note: This error should not be confused with the double impression varieties which are prevalent in the stamps of South Australia. Occassionally, some stamps were printed double, as in the case of this example, where the complete doubling of the design can be seen at the left. This stamp is almost identical in characteristics to the Ferrari example.. . provenance:. Peter Jaffé, March 2006 (Image1)

109 imageSouth Australia. 1876-1900 Watermark Broad Star, Perf 11½-12½. 9d. rose-lilac printed both sides, the second impression printed sideways, fine used. Three examples recorded and grossly under-catalogued at £600. RPSV Certificate (2013). S.G. 123a. Photo
Note: This error was first reported in the "London Philatelist" in July 1893, however, it was not listed in the Stanley Gibbons catalogue as a generic printed both sides until 1923. The second impression on the reverse of both of these stamps is much lighter than its Large Star watermark counterpart of S.G. 122a. No distinction between the inverted error and the sideways error was made until quite recently. They are both amongst the great errors of South Australia. The last time an example was publically auctioned of either variety was over sixty years ago in the Beresford sale in 1958. (Image1)
