Very nice ... I've been trying for some time to find the kangaroo in meter stamp and was almost at the point of buying a large lot of stuff I didn't want to get one ... then along comes a lifesaver. :D

My first PNG cover with the 1990s Birds of Paradise. Very much appreciated.

The cricketing kangaroo sticker on the mailing cover makes that a keeper as well. :D

And this pièce de résistance:

Image

Sent from West Papua when it was known as Irian Barat and in the process of being forcibly incorporated into the Javanese Colonial Empire (Indonesia). Note the IRIAN BARAT on the stamps.

Image

Sent from Kota Baru Irian. This cancel is described as very hard to find. Most copies are on UNTEA first day covers that were produced and backdated by Indonesian authorities in order to dupe collectors. A genuine use is a good find indeed.

Very nice selection of items Gus, and VERY much appreciated. :D

Got this the other day from Old Yeti. Inside was a Phillipines Scout cover(now on the scout thread). I nearly missed it, as I thought it was just a stiffener in the cover.

I'm glad to see A.I. have chosen the tight colours for their covers. Oh!, I forgot to say posted on 11-11-11.

I wonder how many post offices have cancellers that show 11.11.11 ?

Very few, I would think.

Most I have seen use letters for the month.

And now I know what tight colours look like. 8)

Another Villefranche cover from Tanuki arrived yesterday.

There are Villefranches all over the place in France ... distinguished from one another by sur-saone, sur-mer, sur-all over the place.

Image

Villefranche is the French equivalent of Freeburgh, where I live ... so I have a Freetowns of the world project running at the moment.

And a combatants' monument on the back:

Problem is which side to display.

Thanks Tanuki ... very much appreciated.

Thanks for that Muruk. I have some bigfoots to give you when you next come down ( or post) A Healesville Sanctuary with pictorial postmark and three different dated pets series from 1996 and a Philokorea from 84. All in pristine condition with no hint of scissors.

As for the Bright cds, I think by now, I have a few, good to see other people send out nice cds's.

Another nice item from nightwatchman.

It's not a place I would have looked for kangaroos, but Noel was astute enough to spot it and send it to me. Much appreciated.

Image

I would otherwise have missed this as I don't buy rolls of stamps.

It's also one of my favourite kangaroo images. Looks very much like one I raised. The look says: "I really should come and rip you to shreds, but I just couldn't be bothered right now."

Well, a greeting card is normally free ... but I thought I should show this off somewhere.

I collect kangaroos on stamps ... but also on greeting cards, so this was a double whammy from Raz. Thanks heaps:

and received in today's mail an uprated (for International airmail service) POSTAGE PAID envelope endorsed "Card Only"

I am wondering what rate (postal value) that imprint represents since it is obviously meant for a special postal service.

Note also the fancy privately imprinted air mail label. Pretty classy!

and the enclosed Australia Post Christmas Card ...

The imprint represents 55¢, which is the domestic rate for cards during the Christmas season.

The International rate is $1.50 if using international stamps. With domestic stamps on international mail, a 10% GST refund to Australia Post must be added, so $1.65 in domestic stamps.

I also received a nice parcel from Muruk, containing about 80-90 covers with beautiful cds and a couple of pictorial postmarks. Too many to put up here. Thanks Muruk.
Also a few Malaysia, Singapore covers for my collection.

Also a visit to Magooley was not without reward, lots of railway stamps/cinderellas, Relief cancels and PAID mail cutouts.

Received a nice surprise from Memphre. Some French and Swiss stamps for my Freetowns of the World project ... in this case one of the Villefranches in France, and Fribourg in Switzerland. These particular Freetowns actually made it onto a stamp. The Swiss are my first from there for this project:

Nice mailing cover:

Cancelled in MAGOG:

I am a science fiction disciple ... the Magog are a race of beings in a series I regularly re-watch, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.

I think I need to start another collecting area for Wierd Co-incidence Stuff.

All much appreciated. thank you. :D

A British receipt from 1957...

...its original cover sent from The Australia & New Zealand Bank (note the inverted 1957)...

...which all came in a very nice cover.

Thanks Muruk, very much appreciated :)

Cancelled on arrival at my request ... Israel had obviously misplaced its canceller. :shock:

Received with THANKS from Muruk a 1957 Canadian registered cover mailed to Scotland
as per this thread https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=33473

Leave it to Muruk to be creative in his mailing envelope. The Canadian cover had been posted at Chilliwack, B.C. Muruk's cover had a wonderful Chilliwack cachet as shown here

MURUK's Papua New Guinea cover offer produced another fine masterpiece! Thank You, Hans, for your generosity and your willingness to share your talent!!

It will make a fine addition to my PNG cover collection.
