re: Australia Post New Issues for 2020

Hi to all

This is my opinion of all the latest stamps, they are ugly, and just issued to raise revenue from stamp collectors.

Although I must admit some of the earlier decimals from the late 1960's and 70's are appealing, but unfortunately we have become a third world country when it comes to issuing modern stamps.

re: Australia Post New Issues for 2020

Hi Horamakhet

True, the stamps of recent are purely revenue makers as many years ago only a handful a year were issued, not like it is today. But as a specialised Regnal collector, as long as there are stamps issued I will add them to my collection, but they only have value if the stamps from 1953 to 1966 including varieties, errors, shades, paper type etc, and all would need to be in pristine mint unhinged condition.

Collecting only the modern issues from 1967 to the present date will not yield anything (including the $5, $10 and $20 stamps of the 1970s), they do make an interesting collection.

Though I must admit that the modern bird series are beautiful, especially the owls, songbirds, ducks and Pardalotes from Christopher Pope, and of course insects.

Here is an earlier link to the Pope display I posted on Stamporama.
https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=15636

I will continue collecting the sheet and self-adhesive stamps as long there is a monarch, without the pre-decimal stamps I have, I would not normally be interested in the modern stamps.

Hi snowy

Just a remark about the Brolga on the stamp

There is a mating ritual of the Brolga which is a very elaborate dance, and few people have seen it.

I and my family were lucky to see it when we Lived in Longreach in Queensland.

It is an amazing spectacle in real life. I think David Attenborough filmed it once.

Horamakhet, Totally agree with you the dancing display as performed by both the Brolga (Grus Rubicundus) and the Sarus Crane (Grus Antigone), which is often mistaken for the Brolga, comprising of leaps,bows,high steps and loud trumpeting is something spectacular to watch.I have seen both Brolga and Sarus in the same flock, and you need to observe the red of the head and neck to determine which is which.

Hi Kapul

NOt sure if I have seen the Sarus Crane, But Longreach in Queensland was famous for its Brolgas.

Indeed the dance is spectacular, I hope that one day I will get a chance to witness it again.

Thanks Brian for all these posts.
I'm reading the book on James Cook by Peter FitzSimons at the moment. Looks like I'll be off to the post office tomorrow to get this set. Your posting of the John Gould Bird Emblem prints last week prompted me to get those too. Some sets are visually very appealing. I'd really like to get these genuinely postally used but there's not a great chance of that happening. My kids keep any stamps they get for me but these are getting few and far between.

Cheers,

Hi to all

It is interesting to note, that Captain Cook was supposedly working from Portuguese Maps,

So he actually knew where he was going. Yes, he did do an fantastic job of mapping the East coast of Australia.


As we all know, the privateer, William Dampier, was another person the British Admiralty employed to explore the coast of Western Australian, as there had been a lot of activity in that area by the Dutch, via the East Indian Company.

One interesting fact, Cook was a little bit health conscious, and actually had a couple of his crew "flogged" for not eating boiled cabbage, drinking the water. This eating of boiled cabbage and drinking the water was one of the preventive measures to prevent scurvy on long voyages, particularly as it was hard to keep citrus fruits fresh.

Which is why collecting postally used, if humanly possible is so interesting. Australia has a following in the USA due to the somewhat common language and similar culture. Strange animals are also a draw and for the most part the issues are at least bright and cheery, to me anyway. A literate population does help when they occasionally stoop to use attractive stamps, but as with the USA the very high values get dusty waiting for some lawyer or contractor whose FAX machine is is out of ink or malfunctioning to send a heavy parcel filled with legal documents.
Otherwise Aussie stamps would have soon been shelved along with the other Jam Jar Labels of the world.
