I haven't had a giveaway for awhile and these are just sitting in my duplicate stock book. This is a small set of early Australia KGV issues. All are different, used, some with perf damage and some with paper on back. Most are in pretty good shape. If in good condition, Scott catalog is about $220 (but no one would pay that much), so good luck to the winner.

Standard rules apply. Reply with "Enter Me" or something similar. You must have 50 quality posts to enter, and be sure your email system is set to receive through SCF.

BONUS: If you can tell me what is special about March 10th, you will receive TWO entries to this giveaway. (Note that I decide whether your answer is what I was thinking, though.)

You are allowed to make the same guess as someone else.

EDIT: I don't want people going crazy on the March 10th guess, so please supply up to two answers only for this part. Thanks.

Winner will be chosen next Friday, March 19th.

How about this newsworthy history item.

The "Operation Meetinghouse" firebombing of Tokyo on the night of March 910, 1945, was the single deadliest air raid of World War II.

Interesting. Not what I was thinking, but now I am more knowledgeable.

I changed the note to delete "in the US". So No1 Philatelist gets two entries due to my mistake.
