A A1-

15-BARS: '12' fine strike on d Postal Card locally addressed at Perth with Swan River Mechanics Institute advice dated 27/3/1886. [This appears to be an unrecorded usage at the GPO. '12' is recorded on covers cancelled at Northam until 1870 & at Claremont from 1895. In the absence of a cds, the case for use at Perth is supported by the Perth dateline on the reverse; and the town letter rate (Claremont is mid-way between Perth & Fremantle)]

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]
