A shortage of 30c values in Adelaide resulted in an emergency printing using an old Monarch counter-printing machine & remainder stock of 1994 self-adhesives. These were distributed only to the GPO & some suburban post offices in Adelaide & were on issue for only a few days, pending arrival of regular 30c issues from Stores Branch.
