C of A - Decimal Issues
1996-2006 Issues in three bulging Hagner albums, testament to all that is exploitative in the issuing policy of Australia Post with all sorts of ghastly se-tenant issues, sheetlets, M/Ss including monstrous die-cut issues such as ridiculous soccer balls etc, plus many overprinted for various exhibitions etc including booklets. One of those "Oh, give me a break" lots! Obscene face value. (Qty Qty)
