An example of the green 1½d KGVI paying the 1d for 2oz. commercial rate and ½d for the war tax:
The letter sheet was franked with a punctured "G / NSW" 1½d KGVI and was mailed Sydney to North Sydney. It was postmarked on 13 May 1942.
Pity about the stray pen mark.

Added this interesting KGVI era piece to stock today - Anyone care to take a guess as to what this 18/10/½d rate paid?
Australia 5/- + 10/- Robes stamps, on large parcel fragment to QLD $A115:
RARE piece .. both the 5/- and 10/- Robes, on a large parcel fragment along with pair of the 1/6d Hermes. From Sydney in 1945 to Mrs W. R. Bradley to Hotel Coolangatta in Queensland. PO Clerk has pencilled the full rate of 18/10/½d at top for this parcel. This was several days wages back then. The 10/- Robes is cat $350 on its own – plus all the others!
Bought very well in an Estate to sell fast - so out it goes at LESS than the current Australia Post Annual Stamp Album costs to buy at PO - quite insane. What will THAT be worth in 10 year’s time??!! $A115
