Australian Commonwealth Postal Rates - 1901-1966
Richard Breckon
The Australian Philatelist

This wiki will be the complete set of articles Richard Breckon had published in "The Australian Philatelist" as a 5 part series from 1987 to 1989.

The wiki will be under construction during the next week or so as I experiment with its proper presentation.

These pages are subject to revisions as the project progresses.

Comments or criticism regarding this wiki and its format can be posted to this link:

My deteriorating vision is proving to be an impediment to assessing the legibility of the images.
Time to quit. Was told what I should collect.
