Arthur told me once he was the SA sales rep for Wrigley Chewing Gum, and did long trips around the outback flogging his wares.

Many covers of all types of things, exist cancelled at all sorts of tiny remote town outposts!

Try Martin Walker (Stampboarder - saphilatelist) if I remember correctly he was selling Arthur's Philatelic Estate.

I note however that he hasn't been on the Board here since 2020 or posted here since 2018.

You are correct Big Saint but my ageing memory seems to recall the bulk leftovers being sold thru Abacus in the last few years in a job lot

Noel I might be a bit late to the reply but I think I have one in my collection. Won’t be home to access it until Sunday. Does that suit?

Mitch confirms that he has many, many covers of the Centenary Test issue of 9 March 1977.
But the Bergen cover shown above is not one of them.

So, this offer is still alive.
Can you help?

Arthur spent most of his working life with Wrigley's.

Here is a colourful illustrated envelope from December 1956 with a Christmas Santa theme.
