Australian First Day Covers
APH1036) Australia 1928 3d Kookaburra OFFICIAL FDC! It is an official cover actually the first I have seen, with the event dates on the reverse which are incorrect, the exhibition actually running from the Oct 29 to Nov. 1. The official envelope clearly too small for the mini-sheet necessitated all but the top selvedge to be removed!
