Back in the balmy (barmy?) days of the ‘70's and 80's Australia Post was very supportive of philatelists.
National Stamp Week was an exciting time on the calendar with schools and hospitals being visited by philatelic and other staff.
Youngsters were invited to design a poster and the winning entries were rewarded with a plaque.
These were very smart and the two shown here have the illustrations of the Captain Cook 7/6d stamp on the 1980 plaque and the 9d from the ‘Animals' series on the 1981.
Nice items to add interest to a collection, but difficult to show, weighing in at 616 grams and 818 grams respectively.
I just scan them and print the illustrations on the album page.
I wonder how many of these are still floating around.
