1952 Official usage of Post Office-issue KGV 7d 'AIRLETTER' with 'OS/NSW' puncture through the stamp indicia (unlisted in ACSC) sent from Government Printer to England with Sydney '14MAY/1952' cancel & lengthy typed message describing puncturing techniques, very light central fold hardly detracts. Most unusual late use of the 'OS/NSW' puncture; while regularly seen on Postal Cards up until the mid-1940s, post-WWII items generally show use of the 'G/NSW' perfin.
