WTB Australia 1978 Horse Racing FDC - by POs, A-Z

Post by BigSaint »

About 10 or so years ago, Stampboarder Nightwatchman, suggested that I take on this task of collecting as many of these 1978 Horse Racing FDCs with different first day of issue postmarkers that I could.

I currently have around 250. While I would prefer the cachet to be the Australia Post one below that is not as important as the postmark. If members have any they would like to part with that I don't have please reply.

You could say I am collecting the A to Z of horse racing. :)

From "Aberdeen Street":
Image
To "Zillmere"
Image
I have a list of fdi post offices from the Philatelic Bulletin so I will over the next few days list the ones I know that I don't have. The Australia Post list is not 100% accurate as I do find post offices that are not on the list.

While I am doing these please feel free to post images of those that you have & I will check whether I have them.

Thank you

Brad :D

Not a FDC, but I assume this PO would have done them?

Anyway bet you do not have one with GUAM GUARD MAIL cds .. I'll pop it in as a freebie, whenever I locate that Frama cover. :)

Correct on both counts Glen, there is a fdi postmark at Trafalgar & there was no battle to obtain it. :D

However it was not sent to Guam & does not have the "Guam Guard Mail" receiving mark.

I see that Warrnambool is on your list and thought the horse racing collectors would have seen plenty done considering Warrnambool has a nag drag track.

I came upon this one the other day and put him aside.

Give me your address and I will send it tonight, before it gets lost amongst the rubble. I sighted the Black Caviar stuff the other day but the wife tidied up behind me.

Guess who was the winning bidder on this one, which is on your list?

You can use search engines all you like, but when they describe it like this: 'Australia first day cover - ref 1135'. You will never find it.

I will let you know when he arrives. (£2.75)
