1879 1d blue PC1 to Perth with poor 15-bars '21' & reasonable 'VASSE' cds of DE17/1879 being the earliest recorded usage of PC2, minor spotting. Issued 1/5/1879. Pope & Reynolds Census #16.

1890 2d carmine PC3 to Germany with 'ALBANY/JY28/91/WA - KGS' duplex & 'HAMBURG' arrival cds of 2.9.91, minor blemishes. Very rare contemporary usage, absent from Margaret Hamilton's collection: most used examples are later philatelic contrivances. Ex Peter Basterfield (sold for 575) & Dr Ed Druce ($172, where the significance of this item was completely overlooked). [Issued 1/1/1890 for the long sea route to GB. On 1/1/1891, the 2d rate - somewhat inadvertently - was extended to all overseas destinations. Two months later, this error was rectified. From 1/10/1891, the overseas rate became 1d. This item should have been taxed but the rates chaos in mid-1891 probably resulted in many such oversights]

1890 2d carmine as PC3 but on a very unusual translucent white stock, curious 'C12' h/s in violet on the reverse, unused. Possibly a proof in the nature of a card stock trial. [The normal cards are quite opaque. This, however, when held to a light source allows the outline of an object behind it to be discerned]

1890 3d green PC4 with message dated "16/7/90", very early usage to Sussex with superb 'PERTH/JY23/1890/ =WESTERN-AUSTRALIA= - GPO' duplex, corner bend at upper-right. Very rare contemporary usage, absent from Margaret Hamilton's collection: most used examples are later philatelic contrivances. [Issued 1/1/1890 for cards to GB via either Naples or Brindisi. The rate was effectively revoked on 1/1/1891, when the 2d long sea rate was effectively extended to all places beyond the Colony. The 3d cards then became redundant]

1902 1d+1d Reply Postal Card, irregular commercial usage to Hobart in 1908 with message written on the face stating "What do you think of my pet?" & photograph of a thorny devil (a desert lizard) affixed to the reverse of the message-half, 'MENZIES' duplex, minor blemishes, intact. Rare commercially used. [Until 1906, the face of all postcards was undivided because only the address could be written on that side. Therefore, this item would have been an illegal usage at the time of issue. However, by the time of use, it was permitted to place the message on the face]
