That's it ! Simple really.
Just observe.
Collectors at stamp bourses, each person in their own little private world,
you can almost feel the brains ticking over.
Anything that doesn't bring harm, is good.

D M Wallen was the author of these articles. He completed some great research. I'll see if I can prepare a page showing that flaw.

In regard to the book and magazines you acquired, I have spares of 'The Australian Philatelist' Vol 1, No 4, Vol 1 no 5 and the 1991 yearbook (this last the final issue).

Yours for the asking, Rod.

For all readers, that series of just 12 issues in a phenomenal philatelic resource, particularly in regard to Richard Breckon's analysis of Australian postage rates from 1901 to 1966.

As an example, I had tried to decipher the way this cover was taxed:



A member on a Facebook page explained to me that outwards mail from Tasmania was not subject to air mail charges from October, 1937 (it still applied to inward mail to Tasmania until 1959). This information was confirmed in Vol 2, No 2 of 'The Australian Philatelist'.

Rod Perry has limited supply of all issues. Enquire through www.rap.com.au.

Thanks John,
I'll take you up on that, I'd prefer to pay though, something reasonable, to cover your effort, the books and the postage.
I like give and take.

Now there's something, first time I have learnt the blue lines for express post.
Red and Blue, I always restricted those lines to Registration.

PS: Also searching for the Brusden White 2004, It's a rare book these days,
Please advise if you see a second one in your travels.
I have an eBay search going, hope we don't bid against each other :(

I have a single example of the E16 flaw.

Throughout the printings of the red value plates on Victoran and Australian postage dues, the values plate was in groups of 20. Prior to the introduction of imprints, a sheet of 120 feature six blocks of 20. In some circumstances, there were more than six blocks of 20 to use, particularly in the values in higher use.

Until 1904, Victorian printings saw the blocks always in the same positon relative to the others. This changed in 1904 and it did not follow that the position of the various blocks was constant.

When imprints were introduced, two of the blocks were split into ten units each so that each pane comprised a pane of 60 with 2 x blocks of 20 and 2 x blocks of 10.

This stamp is from position 16 in block E.



This looks a little less pronounced than the illustration in the above article so should be earlier. Unfortunately, the date on the cancel is not clear.
