[In January 2016, the base letter rate was raised from 70c to $1. A shortage of 30c values in Adelaide resulted in an emergency printing using an old Monarch counter-printing machine & remainder stock of 1994 self-adhesives. These were distributed only to the GPO & some suburban post offices in Adelaide & were on issue for only a few days, pending arrival of regular 30c issues from Stores Branch. No publicity for or notification of the issue was given & no examples were provided to the Philatelic Bureau or otherwise for distribution to New Issue Service clients. Usage on commercial piece has been recorded from 6JAN2016 but no covers from either the 6th or 7th. Collectors became aware of the issue on 8.1.2016 on which date a mere 16 "FDCs" were processed]
