PS

1976 Scenic Issue18c comprising the 16 views that were substituted, nine for relatively minor technical reasons, the other seven - with the "new" versions for comparison - because it was claimed the actual photographs had to be replaced, also two views with Helecon Bars Omitted, unused. Superb! Modern rarities. [Andy Jansen's set sold at the Prestige auction of 7.12.2012 for $2070]

The reintroduction of Postal Cards, after a hiatus of 19 years, was accompanied by both great fanfare and one of the greatest production snafus ever created by the Post Office . It is debatable if most of the selection/technical "problems" identified required rectification. Several of the substituted views are artistically inferior to those they replaced. However, Port Macquarie (NSW) had not moved to Coolangatta (Qld)! Virtually all of the original sets were destroyed & very few were actually distributed.

The importance of all this is that the stamp impressions were the same as the views, meaning that Australia Post issued seven error stamps in miniscule proportions. If these were adhesive stamps, the seven withdrawn designs would each be worth thousands of dollars. (Qty 38)
