No apologies required whatsoever Brad. Please post any relevant pre-1976 Australian covers that you have on this thread. I will be delighted to see them. We arrived in September 1976 and I immediately started an Australian F.D.C./mint and used stamp collection. I am a little light on the ones pre 1976.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

Allan's Music advertising cover with strip of 4 x 5d Export Australia stamps (SG 353) postmarked Melbourne 28 cds on fdi - 28th August 1963 to Melbourne Vic.
Allans Music was a chain of music stores in Australia. It sold all categories of musical instruments, instrument accessories and sheet music. In 2010 it became Allans Billy Hyde, but collapsed in 2012. It collapsed again in 2018, but into voluntary administration. Shortly after, the Australian Taxation Office ordered the company to enter liquidation.

Allans was established in May, 1850 when Joseph Wilkie and John Campbell Webster started a music warehouse (Wilkie and Webster) in Collins Street, Melbourne. George Leavis Allan joined the company in 1862, then twelve years after becoming a junior partner Allan found himself sole proprietor. (The original store[2] had signage "Wilkie, Webster & Allan".) His son George became a partner in 1881 when the name of the firm was formally altered to Allan & Co. By 1877 it was the largest musical warehouse south of the equator, a distinction it retained; in spite of many changes in musical retailing, the firm of Allan built its name into the record of Australian music. The company subsequently became Allans Music Australia Ltd.

It was bought by Brashs, to become Australia's biggest music retail chain. Brashs collapsed (going into receivership in 1994 and in 1998).

Reading between the dates, I will take a wild guess thaat 1963 was Robert G. Moses last year at Barker College and that he got a job in Macquarie Street and that his middle name was Geoff. Call me Sherlock.

A reasonable deduction Dr Sherlock & may explain why he is missing the higher value Navigators, birds & a couple of other issues. They would have been too expensive for someone new to the workforce.

I recall when I started as an audit clerk in the early 70s my pay was about $20 per week.

:D

PS Navigators & others coming up shortly.

I am sacking you Sherlock.
In 1964 Master Moses got promoted to Mr Moses.
In 1965 he left home and the covers are now addressed to his father.
