I recently found this block to add to my WW block collection. Cost me 40 cents.

Hey, Rod....not all used postage dues with stroke are held in catalogues.....



to be fair, it was cheap because the Royal in Melbourne would not give it a clear cert. I have tried but can't find any provenance prior to 2009.

John,
excuse my ignorance, I am not privy to the information on such valued examples.
Your explanation is brief, and would benefit, if you could flesh out the situation to us novices.
I presume the stamp is genuine, but you need to prove use?
What would you be trying to prove / establish?

I cannot solve the violet, but I seem to see an "EXHIB"
What is a "clear certificate"?

There are three accepted used copies of the 10s. They all feature the purple 'SYDNEY PARCELS BRANCH' cancel. You illustrated one of these along with its companion 20s.

The stamp I showed is one I purchased on eBay, additional to the three mentioned above. My cancel is different, unclear and was not considered contemporary to the stamp by the boffins at the RPSoV.

A clear certificated is one that states 'genuine in all respects'. A qualified certificate is one that questons whether all components are genuine. It may say, for example, 'stamp is genuine, cancel is not contemporary'.

In trying to prove a stamp is genuine when it has not been seen before, determining the history of ownership is important. As I said above, I can't get back further than an incomplete sale at Cherrystone in 2009. Cherrystone have no record of the vendor so I am at a dead end.

Rod,

As to the remainder of your inquiry, I wonder if there's a marking on the back regarding the routing, because there's nothing on the front that would indicate where it went from airmail to surface.

Of course, there's also the possibility that in 1927, there was little or no international airmail service to Australia, which might allow one to assume that it entered surface traffic at some point. I don't have international airmail references to verify, but I know Germany didn't have a regular transatlantic service at that time. Zeppelin's didn't start making regular trips until 1928, and the German catapult mail didn't start until 1929. It might have only traveled via airmail within Europe, then via steamer to the U.S. or around the Cape of Africa.

Hi Postmaster,
appreciate your observations, I feel a tad relieved, as I had the same opinion as you regarding where it went from airmail to surface, then I thought maybe surface to airmail.
So I was perplexed.
I had seen another "justqu'a" cover where the Airmail Indicia had been cancelled by two red bars.

Auction shows no back image, but offers us this commentary. (I am not au fait with "Marshall Correspondence")

1927 (Apr 11) inwards air cover from Aalborg, Denmark to Brighton Victoria with colourful franking of mostly surcharges, endorsed 'BY AIR MAIL' and with German 'Luftpost/Par avion' black on yellow label, the earliest recorded jusqu'a airmail item to Australia. First time offered, from Marshall correspondence.
