Blog covering modern Australian stamps. Information on new issues, reprints, postal stationery, exhibitions, most of which is unavailable elsewhere.
Well its not a matter of what I think about the stamps themselves - there are a lot of lovely stamps being issued by Australia Post. Its more so the number of new issues. Its a little bit out of control and has been for some time now. I know its not a new argument, but the result will be less and less people bothering to collect new issues MUH or less likely to buy new issues for posting and that makes it a lot harder for someone like me who likes to collect fine postal used examples.
Another issue is the number of stamps which are being produced in both gummed and self-adhesive formats. It seems just about every issue appears in both, with collectors asking me if Australia Post has made an error when an issue only appears in gummed sheets.
