Production numbers of Australian predecimal stamps

Post by heritagefutures »

Hi all,
I am looking for a reference on production numbers of Australian predecimal stamps

I am keen to know the numbers produced for the following three stamps:

1934 Centenary of Victoria set (ideally numbers for each value)
1950 8 ½ d 'Aborigine' (Gwoja Tjungurrayi)
1952 2/6 'Aborigine' (Gwoja Tjungurrayi)

Thank you!

Known numbers printed, destroyed, etc. are all listed in the ACSC.

Thank you. My problem is that the local library here does not hold a copy.

I haven’t got access at present to my copies of the ACSC (lent them to a friend who’s just getting back into stamp collecting).

Many of the members here will have them so help with this shouldn’t take long.

And numbers sold are also in the widely available Seven Seas ASC catalogue.

Collecting stamps without owning basic catalogues seems pretty silly to me. :!:

OK, I'll look it up.

Centenary of Victoria 2d: 116,138,000 stamps; 3d: 5,874,000 stamps; 1/-3,420,000 stamps.

8½d Aborigine: There was a single printing of 16,000,000 stamps. 6,520,000 distributed to the post office. 924,846 of these subsequently destroyed. Total issued therefore 5,595,154 stamps.

2/6d Aborigine: 37,800,000 stamps.

Fair enough :-) Alas, I no longer collect stamps...see my introductory comment for being on this board...(https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?p=8987549#p8987549)
