Limited 1994 Ed. Deluxe Hargrave Stamp/Banknote Portfolio: Slania$A80 for Black and $A150 for Red
The special Note Printing Australia numbered Banknotes in all cases match the number on the special stamp sheetlet of 25.
These sheetlets of 25
were available no other way than in these portfolios. This is the ONLY
way to get them.
There is always demand for these from Europe especially as Czeslaw Slania
engraved it - the only stamp set he ever did for Australia.Slania is a legend,
and is a cult figure among collectors worldwide - as you can see :http://www.slaniastamps-heindorffhus.com/
The folders are a really deluxe thick heavy board 3 fold affair - this is the front cover:
And here is some info off the back cover:
I have a set of these portfolios in stock, both black and red.These also have a special UNC paper banknote of the $20 paper Hargraves banknote.
This banknote is a special one - being the LAST 1994 Fraser/Evans printing with ADK prefixes. and red oveprrint
These are scarce - and are cat as McDonald 196b at $130 each in black
in uncirculated condition as these are.
They are superb portfolios and I sell a lot of them. The issue price of these was $175 for the red, and $95 for the Black.
They were produced in limited numbers, and sold out almost immediatelyThe ACSC current catalogue value is $250 for the red and $120 for the black.
These of course are keenly collected by numismatists as well.
They are illustrated and priced in the leading McDonald Coin and Note "Bible" catalogue.

1994 Lawrence Hargrave Red *AND* Black number stamp sheets 25, in Folders - Ret $300
I bought today some of the quite superb and lavish Note Printing Australia/Australia Post productions. They generally did a VERY small run in red numbers that always sold out in advance via a "lottery", and a 1000 or so more in BLACK numbers.
The RED numbers are incredibly keenly sought and often get $200 a block alone.
The owner was a note collector so he kept the notes, and sold me the stamp sheets and lavish multi gate-fold heavy board folders, with David Maiden guarantee and verification etc.
The PO did NOT issue these in sheets of 25 - only in these packs.
The numbering and any overprinting was done by AUSTRALIA POST and of course are 100% official.
One almost never sees these on the market as most were bought by note collectors, who have kept them intact.
Have not been sold these in 10 years .. they really are scarce
This stamp block was steel engraved and printed in Sweden -- a FIRST for AustraliaCost price was $280 a set
and retail today is higher - $300 as you can see.
If you want the numbered Hargraves banknote a client has a spare set he will sell for $40.
Also the matched Eminent Women red and black numbered sheets of 25 in similar deluxe folios are offered here - http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31404
NOTE: - Most parcels leaving me this month will have these GEMS as part of the franking!
