Out with the old, in with the new.
At left is my old boyhood Sc.279 which I may well have soaked off a postcard decades ago, and a purchase I finally got round to making.
I thought the juxtaposition might be useful.

Sometimes it the little victories that bring so much joy. I remember the day I bought this stamp. Yeah maybe not that expensive but to me at the time it was priceless.

Couple of auction wins from last week.

This 5/- Sydney harbor bridge CTO fills a nice gap.





The 6d Kookaburra BCOF with stop after Japan





And filling some Canadian gaps


One step closer to finishing the Quebec tercentenary issue





And the 1935 KGV Pictorial issue 50 Parliament, Victoria B.C.

Indeed they are so beautiful, Stallzer. I never concentrated on the stamps from Canada, you've given another country to indulge in. Now I'm gonna blame you for this.
The Australians too are very striking, I too have a few of them, shall share some of them tomorrow.

If you're easily tempted maybe you shouldn't click this link to stallzer's thread on Commonwealth KGVI Era And Pictorial Sets. Amazing!

I just purchased this today from an eBay auction, got it for $2.50 plus shipping which seems reasonable compared to others on eBay. I've gone about as far as I can go with my GB collection, without re-mortgaging the house, so am starting to collect GB postal stationery. I have about 50 so far and there are probably a couple of thousand so I have a way to go, and most seem to be pretty inexpensive, I found a few in the $1 box at stamp shows. Anyway this one, issued in 1890 for the 50th anniversary of the Uniform Penny Postage, seems to be the first British postal item that not only commemorates a specific event, but even SAYS so. It's a two-part souvenir item, with the outer envelope with pre-printed stamp and the inner card with a picture of Sir Rowland Hill on which, presumably you would write your message. I think it's kinda neat.



Incidentally, stallzer's post of the 50 cent Canada stamps showing the BC Parliament building reminded me of a very pleasant trip my wife and I took about 7 years ago to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Fairmont Empress hotel, which is located at just about the point from which this image was taken, and we took stroll over to see these buildings up close, about a two minute walk.
