Premier/Prestige Philately: "International Rarities Auctions" sales #101 (25/1/2003), #115 (14/4/2005) & #121 (22/4/2006), a few blemishes. A fabulous array of the best-of-the-best of Australian philately, if we do say so ourselves. [Over 100 copies of this year's catalogue were damaged in transit & had to be replaced. This exhausted our stock & it is now virtually unobtainable] (Qty 3)
