The 1949 ½d Wallaroo pale orange-yellow shade, known as 'mellow yellow' is rare. A sheet of 160 was discovered in 1996 by Brusden-White; and has been recorded as being the only known sheet to exist. It's listed number 180c is in the Australian Commonwealth Specialists Catalogue (ACSC), this extremely difficult stamp can only be obtained with the Brusden-White certificate.

The stamp I have is accompanied by the Brusden-White certificate. The stamp on the left is the common deep orange 1949 ½d Wallaroo and the stamp on the right is number 180c. Number 180c are known to only exist in mint unhinged condition.

I waited a very long time to acquire this very unique stamp, it is definitely a very nice issue. There is another stamp of the same shade from Queen Elizabeth II. It isn't as scarce as the 1949 Wallaroo, nor does it have a certificate but it is unlisted in all specialist catalogues. A new Australian Commonwealth Specialists Catalogue (ACSC) has just been published; hopefully it is in that book.

The next stamp I'm going to show will be the unlisted pale orange-yellow shade Queen Elizabeth II 6½d.

Interest in Australian philately has boomed in the last 20 years. And rightly so.

ernieinjax, You're very welcome to visit Australia, ever since I was a child my dream destination was America and England.

At the moment I am filling a few gaps in my Australian collection, soon I will be adding some very interesting US stamps to the collection.
