Hi rod222, is there any significant about this 1980 Cinderella? I bought this from a Sydney stamp dealer in the 1990s. Thanks

Nothing to do with Australia. Herlev is in Denmark. These are Christmas seals put out by the Herlev Lions Club in 1980. Sheets from other years can be found online.

Here is the 2021 sheet of seals:

Non Philatelic.

This is my personal SIGIL

Sigil, from the Latin sigillum, meaning a "little sign", means a sign or image supposedly having magical power.

Hi Rod

Thought would share.

Have been mailing out parcel with the last auspost stamp releases on them. It was for mailing plants. Thought to myself these beautiful stamps are getting trashed, thrown into the bin. Will send the next 30 x parcels with a return envelope for stamps. Out of 30 envelops sent I received 1 return. Looks like the only reason stamps are not popular is because no uses them for mailing anymore. The interest in stamp collecting still seems to be out there. 30 x is a very small sample but interesting.

Take it easy. John Great Thread

Interesting John, 3% return
Better than bank Interest

Perhaps out of the remaining 29, 3 people would keep the stamps for themselves.

Seems bad economics, spending a $1.10 + cover, to get back what?
X amount of used stamps.

Like your concern though.

News of the Australasian Congress 1911
The Inevitable Souvenir Stamp.
An opinion from the Sydney Morning Herald, September 25th 1911

The souvenir stamp seems to he becoming inseparable from the philatelic " congress," but I doubt if any of the recent issues of congress stamps have amounted to editions of 60,000.
Already one of the labels has reached this office and 1 must confess it does not appear to me to present the philatelic ideal of a stamp for postage purposes.

A lady whose "decollete " seems precariously insecure forms the central feature of the design, but she is so tall she can scarcely keep within the picture. Her arms are extended and in one hand she holds a laurel branch and in the other a fern.

The inscription reads " Philatelic Souvenir Stamp "
at top, " The First Australasian Congress and Exhibition " at left and right, " Sydney 1911 " in a tablet at the bottom. The lady may be an Australasian idealisation of the goddess Philatelia, with an NZ star in the place of an aureole, but, without the latter she might equally well be an advertisement for a scheme of physical culture The label is printed in blue and is perforated.


Not my stamp.

The Sydney Stamp Expo 2011 website had this info:

"2011 marks the centenary of the First National Philatelic Exhibition and Congress in Australia and is therefore an important milestone in the history of organised philately in this country.

At this event special commemorative stamps were printed in sheets of twenty (four by five) in four colours being red, green, navy blue and pale blue and all were perforated gauge 11.25. These probably represent the first Australian philatelic souvenirs produced and very few sheets appear to have survived. "

Beautifully prpared monograph... Thank you.
I have many of those cinderellas.

First time I have come across "The Goddess Philatelia"

"Well, I declare! You stamp collectors beat my understanding!"
"Well, I suppose to one who is not interested in philately, stamp
collecting seems like a queer business."
"It isn't a business—it's a disease."
—"The Prevailing Malady," 1895

Women Collectors
For a hobby that men appeared to dominate, at least publicly, it is
intriguing that women played a formative role in shaping the mythology
of early philately. One philatelic writer claimed that the first gatherings
of stamp collectors in Paris in the 1860s were hosted and attended by
women who exchanged their duplicate stamps on Sunday afternoons
in the Tuileries Gardens. When the postage system was still new in Britain, women collected stamps featuring the profile of reigning monarch Queen Victoria. In the 1880s, women's magazines such as Godey's Lady's Book and Ladies' Home Journal proposed that stamp collecting was an appropriate activity for women. Because it was an indoor amusement, "restful" and "quieting after the mind has been busily occupied
with duties," it was viewed as a proper way for middle-class women
to spend their leisure time. Women were well suited to the pastime
because it involved creativity—when arranging a collection—that capitalized on their "natural artistic tastes."

The Goddess Philatelia

Philatelists represented their pursuit with an allegorical figure,
"Philatelia," the goddess of philately, who engaged in rigorous study
of stamps. Philatelia symbolized their pursuit and may have acted as a
guide for those pursuing philatelic knowledge. The APA adopted the
image of Philatelia for its seal in 1887 and it is still used today. In the
seal, Philatelia holds a stamp album in her left hand while she places a
stamp into it with her right. As a figurative deity, she sits on a globe that
makes her appear larger than the physical world that she sits upon

Inflation? This is inflation.

$25 million dollars, to install a flag pole on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Non Philatelic (Sort of)

I have perhaps spent $500 in the past 3 years on stamps
(Not including my est $700 on Billigs)

From the greenback par, to the current 68c? to the dollar,
I closed up shop, and spent the time on my storage of purchases.

I saw this current financial position coming (or rather felt it)
Blind Freddie could see house prices had to falter at some point.

So here's Australian Retirement estimates, that may have you Boggling

Australia Retirement
Author : The Barefoot Investor.

And until now there's only been one number that everybody quotes: the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) standard: $545,000 for a single and $640,000 for a couple to have a comfortable retirement.

The new estimates just in from a new identity.



I am happily retired on about One third of that.

Hi Rod,

You say on the "Philatelia" label above: "The lady may be an Australasian idealisation of the goddess Philatelia, with an NZ star in the place of an aureole."

Given the 1911 date, I suspect the "star" is the seven pointed Federation Star that exists even today on the Australian flag.

Mind you, under the preamble to the Australian Constitution, section 6 provided the opportunity for New Zealand to be admitted to the Commonwealth of Australia. If the Kiwis had taken up the offer the star would have needed 8 points.
