I went to the local second hand book store and picked up a 2002 rennicks Stamps of Australia catalogue. It seems to be lacking quite a lot in the way of information. Really is more of a price guide. I went to my coin dealer today and had a look at some of his stamps. He has given me a lend of Bursden White The Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue: King George V
which seems to have quite a bit of information in it.
Whilst I was there I picked up a few more side faces:
I couldnt find 1/2d OS perf in the rennicks book I got so maybe these arent genuine?
A few OS prints. I dont think the 1d is very well centred though
I liked the cancels on these having been to both places numerous times:
The next few all had cancels from places I've visited and liked so I got them as well. Dont know why I got the orange 4d though. Its quite light but definitely not the lemon yellow.
All up I walked away $35 poorer. Was this an ok price for this lot? I expect to pay a little bit too much when im starting out just as I did with coins but the only way i'll ever find out if the prices are reasonable is if someone chimes in.
