581 c image1884 inwards from Germany endorsed "Via Southampton" with Eagle 10pf pair tied 'SONDERBURG/1 2/84' cds, taxed locally with 'T' boxed cachet & rated "25" in red pencil, endorsement crossed out & sent via Italy with 'BRINDISI/5/2-84' b/s, on arrival at Melbourne '1/1 TO PAY' oval cachet applied on face, a few minor blemishes. Melbourne tax markings known from this period are generally inscribed 'MORE TO PAY'; we surmise this h/s was manufactured to meet a particular short-lived rate & deficiency.

583 c image1891 cover to Germany endorsed "per SS Lusitania/via Naples" with 1d brown x3 tied Melbourne 'FE10/91' duplex cancels under-paying pre-UPU 6d foreign rate, taxed with Melbourne 'T ("3d")' oval cachet for single deficiency only, Bavarian 'K.B. BAHNPOST' TPO and Berlin '16.3.91' arrival b/s, rated "80" (pfennig) postage due in blue pencil, couple of minor blemishes. In January 1891 the Victorian Postmaster-General announced a reduction in the ship-letter rate to Europe from 6d to 2½d per ½oz in anticipation of the Colony joining the UPU. However, Victoria's entry into the UPU and the concomitant rate reduction was delayed until October. In order to ameliorate the effects of the erroneous announcement, only single deficiency was charged on underpaid items, the 'fine' element of double deficiency being waived.

585 PSE image1899 Department of Lands & Survey envelope endorsed "Labor Colony" at L/L, Melbourne cds & 'SOUTH YARRA' arrival b/s, flap removed. Important social history. [The "Labour Colonies" were a little-known social experiment during the major economic depression of the 1890s. Based on a German Lutheran model, most were run along charitable lines but the largest & most successful of them, at Leongatha, was "intended to fit men for a social order in which they hadn't had enough spunk to succeed and to which they were, in consequence, a menace" (from a book on the subject by REW Kennedy). The only other recorded Labour Colony item, from Leongatha & endorsed simply "L Colony", sold at our auction of 3.4.2017 for $456]

A remarkable stamp on which the design is so lightly printed as to be difficult to discern against the deep red paper, reminiscent of the Tasmania 4d chrome-yellow Printed on Both Sides where the impression on the reverse is virtually unrecognisable.

598 c image1861 tiny ladies envelope to Serpentine (no arrival b/s) with scarce franking of 1860 Imperf 2d vermilion SG 25 (close to large margins but damaged at top from having been folded over the edge), poor 15-bars '13' of 'PINJARRAH' (legible cds at lower-left), minor soiling. Sold at the Prestige auction of 12.5.2007 for $1747. [Pope & Reynolds record only ten BN '13' covers. This is the third earliest: two are dated 1860, then there is a gap until late-1868. We note that the stamp is a deep shade and may actually be the rare SG 25b. However the cover is offered on the basis of the stamp being a "normal" shade and no extension will be allowed in respect of the shade]
