1977 Australia Silver Jubilee FDI listing Pictormarks?

Post by desmond_maughan »

Hi,

I have heard about the Australian Pictormark 2 Volume set of A4 folders containing various handstamps.

I am only particularly interested in any information of the handstamps used for the 1977 Australia Silver Jubilee 2 Stamp set which have a FDI of 2nd February 1977.

There appears to be both post office FDI, and Temporary post office hand stamps used for the occasion, does anyone have any information about the handstamp PMK's used please?

Do you have any scanned images of the pages please, or anyway I could buy just the Volume 1 which covers this period please?


Regards

Desmond Maughan

Reason: Expanded rather vague heading, and turned it into a QUESTION of some kind. Still needs an IMAGE of some kind

Desmond, the Silver Jubilee set of two stamps issued 2 February 1977 was followed by the Centenary of Test Cricket set of 6 stamps issued 9 March 1977.

When I finished collecting this cricket set on FDCs in March 2017 I had 223 covers each with a different town. So, the Jubilee issue on FDC would be around the same number of towns or more :!:

If you are looking to add to your collection, may I suggest you list the towns you have. That way Stamp Board Members can help add to your collection.

Hi,

I will list what I have later, as for how many.....

I have a list of about 450 FDI post offices in 1975, which does not include any Temp ones setup (Chinese Exhibition) , just for the ocassion. I also have downloaded a list of all the postcode numbers +12K postcodes.

This includes PO Boxes, I think there must be in the order of +10K postmarks, as I have a couple which are dated the 2nd February 1977, but don't say FDI on them, (Lilydale Mkt, Kingswood).

Kindly note that the two volume edition of Australian PictorMarks by Colleen Woolley only lists pictorial and commemorative postmarks. First Day of Issue postmarks that are not pictorial or commemorative are not listed.

Australia Post did not provide a commemorative postmark for the Silver Jubilee stamps of 2 February 1977.
Hence the issue is not mentioned in the postmark catalogue.

Well done with the list Desmond. :lol:

If you get a chance to sort them into Alphabetical order, for the ones you have, it makes it simple for members to quickly check what ones you already have.

Then you can update it as time goes on. :mrgreen:

A savvy idea is to add a contact email (disguised) - 10,000s of folks read this board who are not members.

An even smarter idea is to add a mailing address for the same reason. These are dollar covers at best, and folks are often generous - but BUSY.

Re: 1977 Australia Silver Jubilee FDI listing Pictormarks?

Post by desmond_maughan »

Hi,

I got a couple of page copies from the Australian Pictormark folder pages, Oct 2001 Edition 1, which one covers the 1977 SJ Chinese Exhibition Postmark, I thought it might have had others also. I thought the latest 2013 version would be a newer updated version, which might have been updated to include more, I appear to have thought wrong.

Thanks for letting me know, is there any other publications etc out there that might help?

Regards

Hi Desmond


Here are a couple you can have if you email me your address:


Camberwell Vic.
Camberwell Vic.

Devonport Tas.
Devonport Tas.

Unfortunately Devonport has a small spot on it but can fill a space until you find a better one.

I am doing a similar thing with the 1978 Race Horses.

I will keep an eye out for you these & do appreciate something like this is not a simple task.

10,000s of folks read this board who are not members.

An even smarter idea is to add a mailing address for the same reason. These are dollar covers at best, and folks are often generous - but BUSY.

Re: 1977 Australia Silver Jubilee FDI listing Pictormarks?

Post by desmond_maughan »

I think I have answered my own question, the Chinese Exhibition PMK.
Chinese Exhibition PMK
Chinese Exhibition PMK
It appears it is not an official FDI PMK.
The exhibition ran fron the 19th Jan to the 6th March, I don't know if they actually visited the Exhibition, it looks as if the exhibition had a PMK for every day, and somebody decided to get a cover stamped on the 2nd February 1977, it doesn't say FDI on it, the same as another Postmark I have for Lilydale Mkt, Lilydale Stamp & Coin Shop. I think there could be lots of odd covers, were people have just got them stamped anywhere as long as the date on the PMK is 2nd February 1977.

Hi Brad,

Its quiet unusual and very rare, so I believe, I got it from eBay, a couple of years ago. I don't know if the stamp shop had its own, but I certainly have not found any other type of postmark like it anywhere, thats not been listed somewhere or other. It really confused me, at first, as the date for the 1977 Australian QEII Silver Jubilee FDI PMK is the 2nd February 1977, yet the cover used, is the royal visit souvenir cover. I think somebody has just used what ever cover they had at the time, so hence it's on the wrong cover.
I think an interesting find, as I certainly can't find anything about the shop itself, and it makes me wonder it closed down some time ago, and how many other PMK's like this potentially could be out there like this.
I've attached a picture, so you can see it for yourself.
Maybe somone local knows something about the shop, I can't even find anything to say the shop has been renamed, or ever existed. I possibly think as this is a market, it might have only lasted a short time.

I notice you have a different Australia Post cover here, does this mean you are collecting these postmarks on other covers other than the Australia Post fdc?

Hi Brad,

No, not particularly, I'm only sticking to the PO covers, I don't want to open a can of worms. However though I do have a complete set of the 1977 Australia QE Royal Visit souvenir covers, all having there different date stamp, and town. The same cover as my Lilydale Market, which is a complete rouge cover. I also have the Strathfield PMK on Sydney Port Division HMAS Waterhen cover.

I do also have them on a limited edition UK cover set, mines no. 256 out of 500, '21st Anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme', this set includes all the other countries. You might not have seen them, I've attached a couple of pictures for you, just of the Australia covers, I've since added the Wembley cover to my original set.

Hi Brad,

Snap, I have it 😁, I've attached a picture of my Kingswood cover, as I said it doesn't say FDI on the PMK, but it's date right 2nd Feb 1977, and it is a place, but not a FDI PO, this makes me nervous, because there could potentially be thousands of extra PMK's out there.

1977 Aust SJ Kingswood PMK FDC

Another interesting one I have is Roselands, it has another different PMK Lakemba on it, which is a place right next to it, I wonder if someone posted it in the local PO first then it went onto Roselands, then it went onto England.

I normally don't buy addressed or sealed envelopes, but this was an exception to my rule.

Someone bought it at the PO, addressed it to the UK, and dropped it into the nearest red street box.

Hi,

Thanks for the answer, I did think it was something along those lines, first time I have seen different PMK's on a cover, bit of an interesting find, I thought.

You are correct, Desmond.

There are many, many extra postmarks (cds) and machine cancels on this issue and on this particular cover.

As the late lamented postal history expert, Rod Perry RIP, would say:

It is the ones that are different to the run-of-the-mill stuff churned out by Australia Post that will be valuable in any future cover exhibit or display.

Hi,

Thanks for your information, I am from the UK, I have never seen double handstamps on covers of this era, I've only ever tended to see it on some of my victorian covers, in the days of horses, and ships gone by, when it would take days, and if not longer to arrive, so I thought it was unusual, a bit like me.

Desmond

Glen is correct. I find these covers not in the $1 box but in the 50c box.

Living in Western Australia, I am only likely to find WA postmarks, so your original list is better for me than the list that has all the Australian postmarks in alphabetical order.

I have a Midland cover which has a tiny mark that you are welcome to.
Silver Jubilee Midland
Silver Jubilee Midland
I also have a WCS cover that I am happy to include if you want it.

Now a request. I have the Perth GPO postmark, but not the Perth postmark. If you find another copy of the Perth postmark I will swap it for a cover with the Nedlands postmark.

Hi,

I wish I could get these for 50c to 1AUD, I live in the UK, so I end up paying anywhere from 2AUD to 5AUD, and thats not including delivery to the UK.

Originally I listed them alphabetically by state, but was told it would be easier to list them alphabetically by name 😁. I listed them to match the Stamp Review bulletin extract, as I find it easier for storing them in albums. That is exactly how I have them in a spreadsheet I maintain myself.

Thanks very much for the offer of the two covers:-
-Midland WA 6056, would be handy as a placeholder, till I find a better one, no disrespect to you.
-Claremont WA 6010, I am really trying to avoid mixing or collecting a number of different types of covers, I also have a Claremont WA on the usual blue/red Australian PO cover, so I will leave that one with you, so you can give it to somebody who is collecting that particular cover.

As for the Perth (Plain), I don't have any spares, but I can pick one up on eBay, or somewhere else, I have got a list of duplicate covers I have found, so it will help also, and I can get one sent to you, any particular requirements, type of cover, sealed/unsealed, addressed/unadrdessed, etc?, and then the Nedlands can be treated as a swap, and you can send the two covers to together?

BigSaint (Brad) has got Devonport TAS, and Camberwell VIC, which he is going to send me, I will check with him if it would be OK for you to send them to him, so he can include your two covers as well.

When Brad was talking about all the various different types of covers, I have remembered today I do, one is from the Commonwealth Society set, which covers 60 different countries, and one I picked up some time ago, which then fixed what cover I really wanted to collect these on, and the fact I wanted the different 2 stamp set. I though the PO ones, as they would be easier, and less expensive to find.

What I have just noticed today, what's interesting about the Royal Tour cover is it has two postmarks, Glenelg 20th March 1977, and the Adelaide Tour of the 23rd March 1977, you must have been using carrier pigeons at the time?

Hi Desmond

Your cover postmarked Glenelg & Adelaide is an old one:


ACCA Parade cachet fdc for the 1963 Royal Tour of Australia.
ACCA Parade cachet fdc for the 1963 Royal Tour of Australia.

I am thinking that this cover may have been the handy work of the doyen of Australian cachetmakers, Arthur Bergen.

He would often use old covers relevant to new issues, sometimes applying an overprint. 1963 appears to have been obliterated & replaced with a crown. He lived in the Adelaide suburb of Brighton which is only a stones throw from Glenelg. His covers were usually handwritten addressed in pencil. Check if there is any residue on your cover. He also only used the local letter rate value.

Arthur may have used pigeon post when in New Zealand but I would guess he used the Glenelg Tram to do this one & maybe on 21st & 22nd March as it would be likely he did all three days.

This rubber stamp round dater address stamp of 2 February 1977 is not a Post Office cancel.

The Australia Post Souvenir cover (Almeida SE14) shown below was first used in Canberra ACT on 7 March 1977 for the Royal Visit. At the time, Australia Post was reluctant to sell the Souvenir Cover in blank (unserviced) condition much before the first day of use.

Unserviced covers were sold for 12c each. So the creator of this cover purchased the cover on or after 7 March 1977, affixed the set of Jubilee stamps and cancelled them on 2 February 1977 the first day of issue of the set.

Hi Brad,

Its quiet unusual and very rare, so I believe, I got it from eBay, a couple of years ago. I don't know if the stamp shop had its own, but I certainly have not found any other type of postmark like it anywhere, thats not been listed somewhere or other. It really confused me, at first, as the date for the 1977 Australian QEII Silver Jubilee FDI PMK is the 2nd February 1977, yet the cover used, is the royal visit souvenir cover. I think somebody has just used what ever cover they had at the time, so hence it's on the wrong cover.
I think an interesting find, as I certainly can't find anything about the shop itself, and it makes me wonder it closed down some time ago, and how many other PMK's like this potentially could be out there like this.
I've attached a picture, so you can see it for yourself.
Maybe somone local knows something about the shop, I can't even find anything to say the shop has been renamed, or ever existed. I possibly think as this is a market, it might have only lasted a short time...

Hi,

Many thanks for the reply, and confirmation, I did think it was the case the cover was prereleased, as its the Royal Visit Cover, which I do have the full set of all the various places, and dates postmarks, and the first date being the 7th March 1977.
The handstamp, I felt just doesn't look right to all the other variants I have of official PO ones, so felt it was was done in house, and must have been against PO policy. It does make you think how many more like this, that are out there, and only a board like this can help shed some light on them, and help record them.
Regards, and stay safe

Hi Desmond

I had a little look at Delcampe & this is what I found which may or may not be of interest:


Perth GPO (different to one above on Wesley) - looks like slit open at top

Adelaide - there are a couple of different types & sizes, so compare with actual cover

Hi Brad,

Many thanks for looking, yes, looked on Delcampe, as well as a few others yesterday, I have 5 X Perth GPO postmarks, I can get yesterday. He has that one, it's particularly the plain Perth, like on the WCS cover that you shown previously is what he's after.
Thanks for letting me know about the Adelaide, I found out about the different sizes just last week, I have got both now.
I saw the plain cover Albany WA one also, I'm thinking about it, it's not a Silver Jubilee FDI PMK, I think it puts it in the same park, as my Chinese Exhibition postmark dated the 2nd Feb 1977.
I found a Vctoria Park WA, yesterday 😁, I've been asking around to see if I can pick up any of the 1978 Australia Racehorse FDI FDC's for you, just waiting to hear back.
Regards, and stay safe

Snap, I have all three, the GPO Adelaide, and both the two different sized plain
Adelaide handstamps, I saw the sizes mentioned somewhere, but I can't remember were. So all three were being used certainly on the 2nd Febuarary 1977, as to any earlier, I don't know yet. I have recently started doing the same for the 1970 set, but not many yet, and they are a lot more expensive.

As to any other places with different size CDS's I certainly haven't found anymore yet, but then I have only found out about it quiet recently, so will go back through my previous ones found, and ask the sellers, just incase.

Hi Scrute,

Was reading your posting on 8/3/2021 and can offer the Perth pmk on 1977 Silver Jubilee FDC that you are seeking and would be pleased to swap for the WCS fdc addressed to The Revd, Canon B.R. Buckland posted at Claremont which you featured.

Hi Cover2021, Brad, and Rob,

Thanks guys for the offers of covers, and help to make this happen.

As I said I don't need the WCS Claremont cover, so I'm rather glad it can found a good new home.

So is it now just a case of the swap between Rob (WCS Claremont) and 2021 (Perth GPO) and then Rob can send both the Nedlands, and Midland covers to Brad whose going to send them on along with a couple of others to me.

If anyone needs postage costs please let me know.

Many thanks
Regards, and stay safe
