Aust. 1937 2d Sesquicentenary “Man With Tail” SUPERB USED!

Post by GlenStephens »



Australia 1937 2d Sesquicentenary “Man With Tail” stamp SUPERB USED:
Probably the most famous plate variety among Australian stamps, and certainly the most easily seen with the naked eye! Was corrected very fast, and not many exist on this issue, which had a massive 72 million stamps issued.

Most I have seen have machine cancels, usual on letter rare stamps pre-war - which apart from being pretty ugly, generally covers up part or some of the error. And MOSTLY they have a few ripped out perfs, very typical on these hard paper issues - check perfs on your NORMAL stamps! And centering can and is, generally all over the place on these.

So this is a one in a million example. Some stamps have unusually strong "eye-appeal" and this is certainly one. Clean and fresh and flat, with a superb crisp cds strike of small country town “LEETON - 18 OC : 37 - NSW”. (17 days after issue.) Top Drawer copy, for the discerning collector who ONLY seeks the finest quality stamps. SG 139a £140=$A280.

As the wise old saying goes: "QUALITY is remembered and enjoyed, WAY after the purchase price is forgotten". :idea: :idea:

Roughies sell for q bit less of course, but MY price for SUPERB grade is about what the current PO year album sells for - INSANE! What will THAT be worth in 20 years’ time?! THIS one will be a ton higher in price than $150 I can guarantee you that. Now it is recently SG listed, it receives GLOBAL demand. A steal at about HALF Gibbons, for a truly top grade example. $A150 (Stock 576TX)
(Click on either image above to enlarge it MASSIVELY! Click on that again and it enlarges even further.)

$A150 plus $A3 Global Post

Call it - "Man With Tail : Stock 576TX" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:
All payment details etc are on: - NICE VFU franking is used whenever possible, when I mail (depending on how busy PO counter is!) and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator 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 on the pages here, in case something else appeals.

And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see:

As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use cards - and Amex is accepted too.

Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - and Unless noted by me, all stampboards lots priced *$A100 and under* are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at *YOUR* total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1,000s of my transactions here for 15 years have been delivered safely by normal post. :idea:

Orders over $100 are ALWAYS sent Registered (Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Letter size FOREIGN are usually only $3.50 untracked. Smallish large packet items FOREIGN up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in pre-paid Reg’d envelopes cost $17 total, dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! Only *YOU* know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only *YOU* know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy, and leave packets on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes, or mailed to your work address are FAR safer, if you are not home during day. :idea:

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered locally, or $3 per $100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it out 3 weeks back, and ‘you now need to cancel your ticket, with no nasty penalty please’, and see how you go with THAT one! :lol: :lol:

As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue. For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
