The happy coincidence of the Australia 2013 World Stamp Exhibition landing slap in the middle of the year in which we are celebrating the Centenary of the issue of the iconic Kangaroo and Map issues has not been lost on collectors. World-wide, the Centenary is widely recognised and this extra spotlight on Australian philately has drawn more attention than usual to the AUSTRALIA 2013 FIP event. Our cover reflects that a common Roo stamp, albeit with an OS Perfin, originally worth just one paltry penny, gave rise to rarities like Lot 41 from the Phoenix Stuart Hardy Auction, valued in the new B&W “Kangaroo” catalogue at $6,000.
