1964 Birds, and 1966 Decimal version of Birds

These early Australian bird stamp designs first came out in 1964. The 1964 versions are listed below with the face value in pennies or d, and in shillings or /-. The same designs were later re-used for decimal currency stamps in 1966, and the 1966 stamps are the ones listed with the face values in cents - c. Because the designs are repeated, the stamps illustrated show just one face value, even though two may be available, as with the 6d and 5c Thornbills. The 5c, 6c, 13c and 20c are shown here.

Would you like to buy some stamps?

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
