C of A - Decimal Issues
1976 Postal Cards 18c Scenic Issue comprising the 7 views that were substituted & the different scenes that replaced them, unused. Superb! Modern rarities: virtually all of the original sets were destroyed & very few were actually distributed.
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 If these were adhesive stamps, the seven withdrawn designs would each be worth thousands of dollars.
