Superbly packaged 1989 'INTRODUCING AUSTRALIA' Large Album
"INTRODUCING AUSTRALIA" - THE BEAUTY, WILDLIFE AND HERITAGE OF AUSTRALIA THROUGH STAMPSBeen a DECADE since I had one of these in stock, and 2 arrived today in an Estate.
THE most lavish packaging of ANYTHING ever sold by AP. EVER.
The BASIC nucleus of it is a full colour, hard cover 60 page book, metallic lettered cover, with hard cover slipcase - the same size and look as a thick PO Year Book.
This is all encased in a classy custom made hard thick outer box, also with the same classy metallic silver embossed printing, that opens up to protect it all and allows the book and Japanese booklet and stamps to be held safely.
There is also a 15 page book translating all the wording into Japanese.
Then rather like as in a Year Book, there are MUH stamps neatly stored on a Hagner from 1989 - Famous Australian Artists, Sport, Recreation, Performing Arts, Sheep and The Pastoral Era etc.
I've seen these books offered in the past by dealers for $500. They are REALLY scarce, and I have no idea where they were issued. The Japanese language book inside is a pointer however! The few books I have seen over the decades have the had the Japanese Language booklet tossed away as owners could not read it understandably. BIG mistake!
I see second hand damaged ones offered for over $1,000 - https://tinyurl.com/IntroAust
Remember the first few of the the early PO packs were issued with a JAPANESE translation in them too. The Japanese insert Captain Cook pack is several $100 even today, and the Definitives Japanese insert issue is still ASC cat $3,000 today .... and neither are anywhere near as Glam as this one, indeed both are little B5 sized folders. Full details on those here -
Anyway ... be a long time until you see this one again, so if you THINK you have a full set of PO issued Albums, well you do NOT unless this one is added to the bookshelf!
A bargain at just $A275 plus shipping.Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or ozstamps) here (or on my website) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here in case something else appeals:
