Oceania/Australia : DUKE OF GLOUCESTER FIRST DAY COVER & OTHER ITEMS

Hi to all

In the collection I purchased is the following 1st day cover. Nothing remarkable in itself, but there is a letter in the envelope to the recipient in Britain explaining that it is a first day cover, and the sender is posting it to the recipient for their collection.

The other 1st day cover is for a postage increase in 1941

The other item is an unused postal card from Western Australia. In fact there are six of them in an envelope.

These cards are sometimes sort after by collectors, and some have changed hands for large sums, depending on when & where they were printed.

Regards

Horamaket

Hi Horamaket

They are definitely collectable, the brown war stamp has a few varieties, shade variation, white wattles and ink stripping. It is difficult to tell from the image.

But the "V" for victory when the world was at war for just over 2 years is quite historical. You've got yourself quite a collection.

Hi all,

Notice the morse code symbols for "V" above the letter in "V" for Victory.

Very cool!
