The Ireland King George VI era set of stamps
were printed from 1940 until about 1952. The sets were initially printed
on paper watermarked with a Gaelic SE, and then later changed to a Gaelic
E. If you are strictly collecting the King George VI era stamps, then
you can ignore the set watermarked SE. It was issued originally in 1922.
In addition to the basic set of stamps, there are also coils and booklet
panes if you are interested in them.
Once you have isolated the watermarks, look for some of the various color shades as listed in the Commonwealth Catalogue. You might also want to look for the various inverted watermarks that exist on the definitive and some of the commemorative stamps.
Watermarks as seen from the back of the stamp.
The pages are from my collection, and
are identified by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that
order. The page images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution
so you can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free
to select the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your
hard drive for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will
typically open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using
as your default). From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up
viewing. If you are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images
are 1200 pixels wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.
