ENVELOPES: 1924 KGV "Star" 'THREE/HALFPENCE' on 2d orange with 'POSTAGE' ASC E13, flap fault that in no way detracts from the very fine appearance of this great rarity, 'OAKLEIGH/530P 22MY24/VIC' cds, grossly undercatalogued at $1500. Ex Charlie Fawcett, Julie Resch, John Sinfield & Kevin Nelson: acquired for $8960 at our auction of 20/11/2004. [Only one other example has been recorded. The Victorian Philatelic Record Feb 1924 stated only 6 examples were issued!! For two of the 6 to survive is a philatelic miracle!]

[On 18/7/1908, the "Aeon" was wrecked off the then uninhabited Christmas Island. The 56 passengers & crew were marooned there for more than two months. The ship's officers reached Fanning in an improvised vessel & the entire company was rescued by the "Manuka" on 22/9/1908]
