The 5p with the Garamond font is only available from two Prestige books John so you will be very lucky to find them used.

I can certainly provide both mint - but posting to Australia might be more costly than their worth based on recent customer mailings I have done.

Might be better looking locally.

Hi Dave,
Thank you for your reply. I have looked locally on eBay and all other sites I normally check but to no affail Sad . Can you give me a ball park figure for the stamps and postage to Australia? I would really like to get this as I have this blank hole I would dearly like to fill. Rolling Eyes If you can give me a price I might need some more to make it worth my while.
Regards John

Whilst searching for a used copy of the 26p Type II for John - I found this little gem. Can't remember where I obtained it but I doubt there are many around in this condition.

There is one thing that spoils it - that is the postage date looks like '96 or '98 to me so it is well outside the active postal usage date. Still postally used it is.



Beautiful CDS. If only every stamp were treated the same way at the post office.

Hi Steve,
Thank you for that offer but as from the 19th of May I was lucky enough to pick these up from Dave and they slotted into the empty spaces really well.
Regards John
