Hello, Today a few Australian stamps. I have been listing
more Australia in the cddstamps online store
and thought you might enjoy seeing
I have mentioned before how a good catalogue is really a “must
have” because there are often small differences in what seem to be the same
stamp. The top two are SG 796 (top) and 796a, the 50c stamp from the 1981 – 83 Wildlife
issue. SG 796 is perf 12½
with a catalogue value of 10p, while SG 796a is perf 14 x 14½, catalogued
The next two stamps are from the same issue - the 75c value, SG 801 (top) with perf 12½, catalogued
at 90p, and SG 801a with perf 14 x 14½, catalogued at £1.50.
While the catalogue value is one reason for noting the
difference, the other, more important one in my view, is to know you have both
in your collection.
Tomorrow I will show some booklet issues and the various
imperf and se-tenant conditions you can
expect to find, again some differences I think worthy of having in your
Of course, it goes without saying, but I will say it anyway –
just in case you are looking to improve your collection – cddstamps has these
stamps and many other perf differences in our online store – click here

Enjoy your stamps, Best wishes Michael
