This emergency overprint converted a pre-GST stamp (which was sold 'GST-inclusive' after 1.7.2000) into an International Post issue sold GST-exclusive. It was only ever applied to this particular P-Sheet issue and was not available for sale at Australia Post counters. Mail Orders were supplied the overprinted stamp only with the generic AP employee Angela Thom tab; neither the order for this personalised stamp nor the date of withdrawal of the overprinted stamp are known, but in April 2001 it was replaced with an International Post $1 Kangaroo design.
