A Visual Catalogue: ALL Australian postage stamps, 1913-2021

The members ask - the members get. There was a member demand for a STAMP WIKI on this board. Well here we go. All of you so minded can add to your heart's content. The Moderators here can consolidate info into a new post and keep things tidy. They can add 'Stickies' or 'announcements' to be at the top of the Forum.

A Visual Catalogue: ALL Australian postage stamps, 1913-2021

Post by ewen s »

EDITOR'S NOTE:

The intent of this thread is to display quality lager format images of all Australian stamps issued since 1913.

Extra images that show SG listed variations, errors or rarities may also be shown.
The listing follows the SG numbering system, so some stamps may appear in a page well before other stamps of that year were released as SG follows the design/series of stamps and not strictly in year order.

In recent years, Australia Post shows large format design ready images of new stamps on their website and these are shown here. As the stamps are released, actual scans of the issued stamps will be added along with their SG number when that becomes known.



INDEX to the first stamp for each year:


Clicking the blue underlined link takes you to the first stamp listed for that year.

G'day,

I'm not sure if this will work but if you are reading in this forum, then you probably have some time to kill.


Why don't we post our scans of Australian postage stamps here, in Stanley Gibbons order starting with SG1 onwards?

Some of us have Australia complete - if you do, please don't just scan whole pages. Try just individual stamps, as this is a time wasting thread, not a "post your whole album" thread.

Maybe we will end up with Australia, in order, from SG1 right through to today!

I am at 'work' and cannot post any scans but anyone who has SG1 can start the ball rolling.


Cheers,

Ewen

Australia Postage Stamp Issues for 1913

What a GREAT idea .. if a few folks do this as a project, we have a permanent Australia catalogue that can be updated all the time.

If all members use this format, with good scans, and with complete subject line in each description, and all variants listed in SG, it will be found on google searches very readily. 8)

Australia postage stamp 1913 Kangaroo and Map

Australia SG 1 ½d Green
Watermark 2 (First Watermark)
Perf 12.
Issued on 16 Jan 1913


101120 - half d wm inv a.jpg
101120 - half d wm inv b.jpg
SG 1bw ... watermark inverted

111120 - 3 half penny watermark sideways.jpg

SG 1c - watermark sideways


The rare watermark errors were particularly strong, with the very fine first watermark ½d green showing watermark sideways to right, of which only one example is recorded, fetched $A55,288. I [Simon Dunkerley] first reported this item in 1989, and sold it for $3,000 in 1990 (not to Arthur), when that was considered a high price. That, however, is petty cash by comparison to today’s level! At the time this stamp was given a negative certificate and was sold ‘as is’ however, the general consensus was that it was correct and that has since been completely vindicated. It is interesting to note that two damaged examples pointing towards the left were discovered shortly afterwards and that no others have been found in the last fifteen years.

I don't think there was an intention to image all the varieties, just the main SG catalog numbers and listing the SG varieties.
