Three important Australia
exhibits for sale intact :
1. KGVI 1937-1952
1938-49 £1 CORONATION ROBES - CHALK SURFACED PAPER
£1 Dull blue x4 + 5/- + 2/- + 1/-: 4th September 1945 airmailed envelope Sydney to U.S., damaged in transit, repaired at Boston G.P.O. Mailing Division, where U.S. black on white "OFFICIALY SEALED" label was affixed to reverse
The first and only collection to feature examples of commercial usage of all 106 stamps issued during the King's reign (including die, perforation and paper changes); generally regarded as the best collection of its kind ever formed.
Incorporates the eight-frame (128 pages) mounted collection exhibited most recently at Brisbane (2008) and The Australian Commonwealth Collectors Club (2011), plus much supporting material.
Many highlights, scarce to rare solo frankings (some unique), impressive sections of Robes with multiples of £1 Thick and solo Thin, Arms including the set on various Belfast plane crash covers, etc, etc. (100s)
2. QEII £SD 1952-1965
Very comprehensive, not mounted (in excess of eight-frame capability), includes Navigators to £1 (7/6d Cook x3 items); the best ever formed. (100s)
3. Decimals 1966-1975
Comprises those issues listed in ACSC Decimals I, not mounted, powerful first Decimal series (eight-frame comfortably achievable), likely to be the exhibit all others would be judged by, given it contains the two knockout record franking items, the $2 Bass block of ten and $4 King strip of five on separate covers. (100s)
The three collections on offer contain many of the items
featured in Rod's Woodchip-free Zone monthly column
(see Rod's Columns in menu above).
The collections would suit visionary collectors who want the best; particularly those frustrated by the prospect that spending well into six-figure sums in traditional philately achieves a collection which is nothing out of the ordinary. Those collectors who want tomorrow's philately today.
1. 2. and 3. above: $150,000

Ordering Information and Help
Rodney A Perry (rap) has been a Philatelic trader since 1962. Rod established Rodney A Perry Auction Galleries in 1971 and sold that enterprise 30 years later. The Auction House was rebranded as Millennium Philatelic Auctions .
For ten years from 1992 Rod was proprietor of Brusden-White Publishing , publisher of The Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue, established 1926. During that decade of ownership, with the inimitable Geoff Kellow as Editor (which remains the situation), an ambitious programme to completely rewrite the catalogue was undertaken. By the time the rights to the catalogue were sold (to the consortium which bought the Auction House), the rewrite, embracing Australian Commonwealth stamp issues or their development from 1901 to 2001, was completed. The catalogue was awarded a Gold Medal at the International Exhibition ITALIA 98 .
Rod has been a collector since 1955 and presently is developing a series of cover / stationery collections which have as their common theme Australasia as a destination. Rod is the only Australian member of The Grand Prix Club International, achieved for his Grand Prix Victoria at AUSIPEX 84 .
Our current mission is on-line auctions, and to build content on this website, drawing upon an enormous accumulation of Australian and World covers and Stationery gathered during four decades of philatelic trading. The strength of this stock reposes largely in 20th century material, with a preponderance for items destined for Australasia in the case of material originating abroad.
We are proud members of ASDA , APS (member #074745), PTS , and of course APTA (Rod was President 1999-2001).
This website has been developed in association with an Industry colleague and the Smart Sales Software package which makes it happen is available for sale to interested parties. It is ideally suited to the collectables industry in general. Enquiries welcome.
