Reorganizing my Australia collection.
Decided to do the easy one first. SG1 - d Roo. FDOI 14 Jan 1913.

So here goes the first page. I like finding/researching postmarks.
Retro Reveal really helped; now Postmark Reveal.

I use the Vario pages because I can move things around.

They are dust magnets, which is a problem. Can't really notice when looking at, but the scanner really picks them out

Very nice Pat.
The Blue wax crayon on ARMADALE indicates it came from a Registered cover.

The inverted Wmk Catalogues at $75
The CTO at $30

Keep an eye out for AUSTBALIA
and Watermark sideways (left or right)

I like the MELBOURNE CDS's with Bold numerals, very attractive.

Returned...Insufficient Postage. (2020)

I like your tagging system. Seems like a lot of work. How do you do them?

Thanks Rod.

I also like the large CDS of Melbourne. Will have more to show when I get to the Victoria & Melbourne books.

I will pull these out to add to the d page.

Do you know of a resource for the numbers. Do they reference sub-station post offices, or are they assigned to clerks?

Trying to have a bit of discipline and will attempt the 1d next.
Will take longer.

Zman,
I use a DYMO labeler like the one below.
There are many varieties. This one is handheld battery operated.
Replacement tapes are pretty inexpensive.

Rod,
Meant to comment on the Joey, I guess a pouch is a pouch.

Unknown to me
I have in depth info A-G then I think my library is lacking

Mr. Bobby de La Rue here, or Fairdinkum stamps are the "go to"
gentlemen.
I will check my Library.

I liked the "pouch" gag

Possible Correction.

The d (Official Colour : VERIDINE GREEN) Typo Veridian Green ?
but great deal of divergence between deep and pale green.

The AUSBALIA "flaw" is now considered to be due solely to a smudge of ink, and is therefore not chronicled.
"The stamps of the Commonwealth of Australia" Rosenblum 1947

Look for "ROSTAGE"
Exist in coils (but require junctions between strips of 10)
Exist printed on gum side
Double Perforations

I'm here!

I'm sure Gary Watson co-authored a book on the postal markings of Melbourne.

Is the stamp in the top left corner a squared circle South Australia postmark?

Bobby,
Looks like it, but too many possibilities to pick which "ONG" it could be.
No "ONC" showed up. Does look like there is a 1 centered under the G.

pat

PS - I put that one there because I thought it was the best looking d I had.

That's the first stamp, that had my ears pricked

Bobby, did NSW or VIC have "squared circles"

South Australia, can only be "BRONCO'S BORE" or "CONCORDIA"

NSW CONCORD (Seems to fit the arc)
QUEENSLAND CLONCURRY
VICTORIA DONCASTER

From the bookshelf.
Bib: Undated, from advert on back, would suggest circa 1980

(The d inverted Pmk has risen from $1 to $30)

New South Wales certainly didn't Rod, just normal circular datestamps.

I couldn't 100% say for Victoria, but I don't think they did.

The stamp next to the squared circle is also nice Pat

Pat,
I think you can assume your squared circle is indeed South Australia

SG2 1d Roo.

Happy to get this organization.
Still work to do. Left space on pages for additions.

Would probably not have gotten a lot of these if not for PPA (Phoenix) and Retro Reveal (Postmark-Reveal)

Also find eBay and Wikipedia helpful.

On to 2d.
