- a similar but smaller range from the same source.
Postal Cards 1875 1d rose with 'To' in Italics on very thin card HG 1, minor adhesion on the reverse, unused as always. [Although listed by H&G this item is generally considered to be a proof. No used example has been recorded]
Postal Cards 1883 1d+1d Reply Postal Card finished essay in rose/cream with a different Coat-of-Arms (lion faces to right) from the issued cards and Rouletted between, minor overall soiling. A new discovery. [The issued cards had a smaller Coat-of-Arms with the lion facing away from the crown and were imperforate between. Four unused examples with various shades and stocks are included. See "Postal Stationery Collector" May 2003 at page 13]
Registration Envelopes - Official 1893 use to USA of 'Returned acknowledgment of Delivery' envelope with printed 'R No.' at upper-left but withour printed registration lines, 'REGISTERED/MR3/93/SYDNEY NSW' cds, minor blemishes. Very early & rare Australian Avis de Reception item. [Soapbox time: Items such as this highlight the mind-numbing stupidity of the FIP definition of "Postal Stationery". Just because it doesn't have a printed stamp the FIP doesn't accept it. Yet, it's an official post office envelope, performing a UPU function, for crying out loud!]
