They look good to me... :)

Seconded. Nothing wrong with either of those.
Always on the lookout for Australian pre decimal First Day Covers.

Many thanks to you both.

The 3d is a bit ratty, but both appear to be MUH.

I have had a look at a few of my OS over prints, (bridges & Kingsford Smith) and the thing that stands out to me is the impregnation of the os on the reverse side of the stamp

On eBay I am sure most have been impregnated.

The indentation is also worth observing.
