Hi to all


These are my new purchases. I may have overpaid for the block of four of 5/- robes, it cost me $12.00 but it is MNH

The block of four 2d used Sydney Harbour Bridge cost $1.00, but because it has a nice cancel I could not resist it.

The Hermes cost me $10.00, but it says they are three different types, so I am happy with that

The UPU booklet, cost $2.00 so not too bad.

Regards
Horamakhet

Hi Horamakhet

I assume when you say there are three types of Hermes, you mean 1934 (no watermark); 1937 (thick paper) and 1948 (thin paper), you would have saved a few dollars. The block of 4 5/- robes you would have saved a few dollars there as well.

Very nice well centered block of 4 bridges, the cancellation is from Wycheproof (it is a small regional locality in the center of the Shire of Buloke, in north western Victoria, as of the 2016 census, it had a population of 635 (I wonder how many people lived there in 1932).

The date is one day short of exactly 2 months to the day since the opening of the Harbour Bridge.

Never seen this type of booklet, anything inside.

Hi Rob

All it said on the Hermes was three types, so I think you are correct.


Inside the booklet are 5 x 7 cent stamps and 5 x 30 cent stamps
They are SG 576 and Sg 577

The booklet was produced by the National Stamp Week Promotion Council (VIC) and is numbered on the back 3755

It is not listed in Gibbons, so it is an interesting find.

All items were purchased from the stamp club.

It seems like a good place to find interesting items.

No one wanted it, so that is probably why I got the booklet so cheap

Regards
