Nigel,
apparently Giraffes are "stand offish" in their natural state at the zoo,
however, at Taronga in Sydney during covid, they have been missing the human interactions.

Rod:

The 2d forgery pictured on the cover came up in a recent thread
somewhere on SCF (can't find it now). It's good to see a copy on cover. For some reason, the latest Australian Speci
alist Catalogue no longer gives a price on-cover and there has been a downward trend in pricing. Perhaps nothing has come up for sale lately.

When was that manual published? If it's not too extensive, could you let me know what the manual says about this forgery?

Frank.

Found it. Not on SCF but the BSAP group on Facebook.

Frank,
may I have that link please?

Australia is noted for its low count of forgeries.
New South Wales on the other hand, what a bunch of "ne'er do wells"

Thank, Rod. I have replied on the Australian channel as there may be a more general interest there.

Hi Rod and Frank,

Thanks for drawing our attention to this intriguing postal forgery.

Perhaps you can help me with a couple of questions:

What does the slogan/text part of the machine cancellation say on the example on the front cover?

I don't understand Mr Bynof-Smith's notes on pages 10 and 11 about the cancellation.

He refers on page 10 to an imitation of the cancellation and appears to show on page 11 both forged and genuine cancellations.

However, surely the postal fraud element here was sending mail through the post using forged stamps, and in so doing these stamps would receive genuine cancellations?

The RPSV certificate is quoted as stating that the machine cancellation on the cover is genuine.

I don't see the relevance of forged cancellations here.

Nigel:

I hope you'll excuse me if I bow out on this one. I'm rather caught between a query someone raised on the BSAP forum about the 2d forgery and Rod coincidentally posting the cover of Bynof-Smith book.

Also, it would be better to handle this on the Australian channel to give your query a more focused audience. Rod has already moved the Australian part of this discussion to http://goscf.com/t/51767&whichpage=104#670395 .

Frank.

Good morning Nigel,
The two images on Page 11, have no reference to the cover shown on the catalogue. They are just representative of a forged postmark evidenced on the King George Sideface.

I agree, a bit of a head scratcher, the forged Postmark tells us nothing.

The Cover with forged postage stamps, have a genuine machine cancel,
it looks to me, to be a similar slogan to Catalogue #7-1
(I only have the Western Australian Slogans)
Western Australia, slogan postmarks to 1983
Monograph
Brian Whittaker

Catalogue 7-1 (page 2)
is a
POST EARLY EACH DAY
with two lines above and below.


Used in Western Australia, Perth Fremantle and Geraldton 8th July 1924 to 10th December 1938 (each centre differing dates)


PS: The apparent damaged Machine cancel on the cover, suggests to me, that the cover contained bulk items of Lottery Tickets, thus giving the machine impression, a distorted appearance.
The lottery tickets going to a Newsagent,
(Maybe indicated also by the 4d Franking, I am not aware of the postage rates of 1932)

I'll post an image later, off to an online auction...........

Rod,

Can't help with the catalogue, but the animal is a snake. According to Wikipedia, the GWR coat-of-arms incorporated pieces of the coats-of-arms of London (left) and Bristol (right)

Guess I should have known Bristol
The arms look like the 1000's of vessels that left Bristol on discovery expeditions, North America especially.
Thanks Postmaster.

No SG-numbers, but plenty railway stamps for sale. The descriptions often mention a Ewen #.

Maybe this one: https://www.amazon.nl/History-Railw...p/1376963310
No doubt Amazon.com will carry this as well.

Thank you very much, should have known Bristol Arms
Vignette suggests the early departing point for expeditions, esp to North America (Cabot etc)

Aha! I remember reading that, thanks, I don't recall ever seeing a "Ewen" catalogue / Monograph.

This Revenue sits aside my GWR Air Stamp, Westland Wessex Aircraft.

That SG Link was great ! Thanks
Kept a scan of the Catalogue, shall seek elsewhere, (I refuse to buy anything from Amazon)
