C of A KANGAROOS - 1st Watermark
4710/- grey & pink, non-contemporary 'BARKER__/VIC-AUST' cds, Cat $1100 postally used. ['VIC-AUST' types were introduced only in 1936. Barker PO was renamed from Glenferrie c.1952. This cds remained in use until at least 1989]
C of A - First Day Covers
1948-49 Arms5/- 10/- marginal & £1 corner example on registered FDCs, Cat $1250; plus a faked £2 FDC on Wesley illustrated cover with backdated Largs North cds. [JM Gower was postmaster at Largs North (SA). He was notorious for supplying collectors with backdated strikes; often these can't be definitively exposed but there's no doubt about this one, as this style of cover was not introduced until the 1960s, and small nylon date wheels in the cancel were first introduced in Australia in 1956]
