Description

The SPECIMEN overprints and handstamps of Victoria are the most complex of all the Australian Colonies, with more than thirty different types recorded. The authors have combed all available private and institutional sources to produce this volume; listing not only postage stamps, but also postal stationery, revenue stamps, railway freight stamps, and postal notes. Check lists are provided listing all stamps found with each overprint type, together with a census of the examples recorded.

For most types every different stamp is illustrated, including material from the Australia Post National Philatelic Collection, the British Library and the Royal Philatelic Collection.

Additional chapters deal with Victorian stamps provided for U.P.U. distribution, and the receiving handstamps found on these, and the cancelled-to-order stamps both for presentation and sale to collectors.
