Here are some of the decimal stamps that are hard to find – if they exist at all ! The
Only one Rock Posters issue in September but plenty of variations and other poster paraphernalia. Then came the Dangerous Australians on 3rd October and the infamous $1 Red-back Spider stamp.
July 2006 began with a special ‘Soccer in Australia’ block of nine with tabs to supplement the stamps issued in May. The second issue in July – ‘Extreme Sports’ – had no variations! This is a rare occurrence these days. The last stamp to be issued as a gummed sheet stamp alone was the $1 lyrebird ‘Bush Wildlife’ stamp in 2005. Australia Post made up for this with the August ‘Driving through the Years’ issue of five 50c stamps. This issue contained 28 variations. I begin with some new Australia Post policies related to stamp variations.
