LETTER CARDS:1911 Fullface 1d first line ending '...to' on Thick White Stock (Buff Inside) ACSC #LC12 four different views in four different colours, unused, Cat $700.
LETTER CARDS:1911 1d+1d Reply Letter Card ACSC #LC13 ('ZOO, ADELAIDE' & 'ALBERT BRIDGE/QUEENSLAND'), unusually fine & intact, Cat $300. [The scarcest of the five view combinations]
LETTER CARDS:1930-38 KGV 2d red with ½d Kangaroo added & price at upper-left scored-through, 'SPECIMEN' h/s in violet twice on the card & Double Impression One Inverted on the ½d, a few pinholes from where affixed to a notice board at the Melbourne GPO. Unlisted in the ACSC. An important item for collectors of 'SPECIMEN' material: the double handstamp error has not previously been seen by us. [Despite being a KGV issue, this item must date from 1942 when the rate was increased to 2½d & the cost to 3d]
LETTER CARDS:1942 KGVI 2½d with 'SPECIMEN' h/s in violet across the stamp & centrally ACSC #LC69Aw, Cat $500. Superb! [The ACSC states "one example is recorded"]
ENVELOPES:1979 Founding of Hobart Anniversary 20c with Dark Blue Printing (Building) Omitted, unused. With a normal envelope for comparison. A striking error.
ENVELOPES - OFFICIAL:1918 KGV Sideface 1d carmine with 'OS'-of-Dots + ½d green with Solid 'OS' ACSC #EO5 for Deputy Commissioner of Maternity Allowances (Melbourne) to Malvern with Krag machine cancel of 17MR/1920 & Malvern arrival b/s of 18MR20, heavy vertical crease & associated minor tear at the top, Cat $2000. [The ACSC states "Approximately six used envelopes are recorded...between Dec 1918 & Oct 1919". This is therefore the LRD by some five months]
No longer available
ENVELOPES - OFFICIAL:1918 Sideface 1d red with 'OS'-of-Dots + Sideface ½d green with Solid 'OS' ACSC #EO5 for Deputy Commissioner of Maternity Allowances, to Maryborough in 1919 from where redirected to Footscray, minor faults, Cat $2000.
ENVELOPES - STAMPED TO ORDER:1913 Kangaroo 1d Die 2 with 'Gheringhap and Maroona Railway Construction Trust' imprint at top, used at Colac. The only example we have seen for this user.
ENVELOPES - STAMPED TO ORDER:1920 Star 1½d brown + Sideface ½d green ACSC #ES53 window envelope for Henry Berry (imprint on flap), minor spotting, Cat $750. [Much scarcer than the similar Vacuum Oil emissions]
ENVELOPES - STAMPED TO ORDER:1920 Star 1½d brown + Sideface ½d green ACSC #ES53 front only with 'WARRNAMBOOL/12MR24/VIC.' cds, Cat $750. Much scarcer than the window envelopes for Vacuum Oil. [Addressed to Ball & Welch, which was probably the user; unlisted in the ACSC]
ENVELOPES - MILITARY: 1916 (March) First Issue 1d with 'AUSTRALIAN IMPERIAL FORCE.' at the Base on White Stock ACSC ME1, unused, Cat $300. Superb! [These envelopes were first made available from mid-March 1916, in Victoria & New South Wales only. They were sold in packs of five, for 5½d]
REGISTRATION ENVELOPES:KGV 'FIVE PENCE' on Sideface 4½d violet overprint ACSC #RE23, unused, couple of minor marks hardly detract. [The ACSC states "This is a rare envelope of which only a small number were revalued, presumably returns from post offices"]
WRAPPERS - STAMPED TO ORDER:KGV 1d green Die III ACSC #WS13, Queen Mother 1d green #WS21, and QEII Embossed 2½d indigo #WS34 for the Sydney Stock Exchange, believed to also be the user of the other two wrappers, Cat $550.
WRAPPERS - STAMPED TO ORDER:Queen Mother 1d green + KGVI 2d red ACSC #WS21 for Nicholas Aspro (no imprint: see article in Postal Stationery Nov 2015), Melbourne cds with illegible date, folds from having been used to wrap a small box, Cat $1500. A remarkable item, being the only issue of its type. [This is not an uprated item. Because there was no KGVI 3d die, John Ash resorted to this 'doubleton' expedient. 6000 were supplied in 1938-39. Only a handful of complete wrappers are recorded. It is believed that the package contained pharmaceutical samples. Mark Diserio's example sold at the Prestige auction of 8.11.2013 for $2760]
Only one other Australian postal stationery issue has the portraits of two monarchs: the KGV 1d+KGVI 1d green Stamped to Order Envelope ACSC #ES88.
WRAPPERS - STAMPED TO ORDER:1958 KGVI 3d green large format (225mm wide) ACSC #WS30 with OHMS heading & Victorian Education Department imprint, printed 'Commercial Papers' at U/R, ½d Roo punctured 'VG' added tied 'ALEXANDRA' cds. The domestic commercial papers rate was 3½d up to 2oz]
LETTER SHEETS - OFFICIAL:1930 'TWO/PENCE' on Star with 'POSTAGE' 1½d scarlet ACSC #LSO7 being a truancy notice for the Victorian Education Department, a couple of minor defects caused upon opening otherwise superb, Melbourne slogan cancel of 30SEP/1930, undercatalogued at $1000. Rare. [The ACSC states "One example is recorded...dated 17.12.1930"]
LETTER SHEETS - STAMPED TO ORDER:c.1921 2d orange ACSC #LSS8 for James Moore & Sons Timber Merchants with imprint at U/L & illustrated banner within, roughly opened at the base, Cat $2000. Rare. [The ACSC states "Only two complete examples have been seen"]
