WANTED - Covers with LET'S MELBOURNE AGAIN slogan

Post by Canada stamper »

.
Australia Post has started using a LET'S MELBOURNE AGAIN slogan on October 26, in concert with the issue of a new MyStamp featuring the Melbourne skyline, to celebrate the lifting of the city's 15-week lockdown.

The slogan is used at the DLC sorting centre. I would like to get examples from all 4 machines if possible (451 452 453 454), and ideally on Postage Paid covers so the slogan is easily readable.

If anyone can help, I would be most grateful - happy to swap or buy.

Jean :D :D

First, I wish all the best to the Melbournians who have been through what must have been a most unpleasant lock down.

My strike of the 454 slogan cancel is a very similar quality to Allanswood's. It may be that this is best you can get from this machine. Jean has suggested that the postmark was used on the 26th October. Does anyone have a postmark from the 26th? The Australia Post website https://auspost.com.au/lets-melbourne-again also shows a circular "Let's Melbourne Again" postmark. Have these been in use?

Just answering my own question. Big Saint has posted a cover postmarked on the 26th October. It is over on the "every day is a happy day" thread. It is also a 454.

The 452 arrived in the mail today. A brightly coloured cover with a very indistinct cancellation. Once again, why would a WA based organisation (the Royal Automobile Club of WA) send a letter to a WA addressee from Melbourne?

There may be variations appearing, maybe not from Vic itself as I have just received "Lets Melbourne" without the "Again" - not a missed print, its not part of the design.

But the code seems to look like 535 (not very readable)?

Hi Peter

Thanks for posting these. I think the top one is DLC 453 and the bottom one is DLC 454.

Thanks for posting the picture Greg - I think it's actually the same slogan but a failure of the print head given the poor printing of the date and time - only the dots from "AGAIN" that were on the same line as the bottom of the box printed.

Looks like a good explanation Jean. Well, I have 4 of these so far.
