Why would Australian vendors advertise in US dollars
Anyone?
PS: Not a single penny red in that lot.

Bad luck Rod on the cinderellas on the previous page. The South Australia might be the key item.

The Parramatta 150th came in a sheet of 40.



As for Australian sellers listing in US dollars, I used to do this way back in the day. There's money to be made on the exchange rate if you buy in the right market.

Hi Bobby,
The above confused me..South Australia / Paramatta (NSW) ?

To be frank, the Paramatta cindies escaped me.
I have no idea of their worth, thanks for that.
The ANPEX specimen, may have also added value, but $42 sheesh.

This one Rod.

Looks a little like Bradman.

Right ! Thanks.
Yes, a classic Bradman vignette.

I am a fan of the NRL, and we have a fella there named Bradman Best.

Queensland
3 perf strips.
Can anyone explain how this may have occurred
I am having a hard time understanding how one can have 3 differing
perf counts in a line perforated strip.

Rod,

The perforating machines were not always made up of equally spaced pins.

In NSW there were three machines in use at one time, measuring 11 per 2cm, 11.5 per 2cm and 11.8 per 2cm. Stanley Gibbons always combine the last two as 11, 12. ACSC abandoned the distinction between the last two because they could not be accurately measured on a single stamp.

Thank you John,
that is a first for me, so 1 machine, had differing perf spaces, in the space occupied by the first, and last 3 rows of a sheet.

Surely that would also move depending where you placed the sheet
underneath the pin die.

Come to think of it, I have never seen a picture of Australian Line perforating machine.

Thinking aloud:
Perhaps "either top or bottom" may have occurred depending on the
way the sheet was orientated prior to perforating, meaning only approx 3 rows were unevenly spaced.

As a machinist, I can understand how difficult it would have been to
space and insert tiny pins (accuratel;y) into a die around that time.

A telegraph service between Britain and Australia was opened on 21 October. The first message, from London to Melbourne, was received early the next day. Each message had to be manually received, registered and transmitted at each of eighteen intermediate stations between London and Darwin. The average time to transmit a message was 20 hours.
