rarityOnly a handful have SurvivedBefore Federation,
New South Wales had experimented with a booklet
containing twelve 1d stamps on sale at 1/0½d. This
did not find a ready market. The early Commonwealth
booklets also made a slow start. In some States
sales were so few that Post Offices took the stamps
out of the booklet covers and sold them normally.
Most of the sales of complete booklets were to
business houses who broke up the booklets in order
to use the stamps. Hence only a handful have
survived to the present day. Sales of the booklet
containing 120 2d stamps were very poor and these
were discontinued in 1909.New 2/- booklets were
issued in 1910 and 1911 again containing States
stamps. The 1910 booklet contained eleven ½d
stamps and eighteen 1d stamps and was sold for 2/-.
The 1911 booklet was generally similar to the
earlier one but with an additional ½d stamp. Some
examples of the later booklet can be found with the
½d stamp stuck back into the pane prepared for the
earlier booklet by means of small pieces of gummed
paper attached to the back.
