AUSTRALIA Kangaroos - Small Multiple Watermark - Stamps on Cover

2034  The Donald Harkness Remarkable Kangaroo Franking 1933 (Mar 25) parcel-wrapping portion bearing an extraordinary postage composition comprising Third Wmk £1 grey x11, SMult Wmk £2 x3 plus KGV 4d olive paying an aggregate £17.1.4d, representing, by a quantum margin, the record franking, for a pre-war postal article. At upper left endorsed "Accepted/Weight/32lbs/T Hart/Inquiry Office/G.P.O./Sydney" with "£17.1.4" beneath. 32lbs exceeded the limit for parcel post, and the article was therefore required to be charged at full letter rate, as follows: £17.1.4d postage represents 512ozs (32lbs) at 2d per oz. Letter rate = 1,024d (or £4.5.4d) + airmail surcharge 3d per ½oz = 3,072d (£12.16.0d) = Total £17.1.4d. This article, which was professionally restored in 2012 (and affixed to non-acidic backing paper), is the record, and the most remarkable Kangaroo franking extant, retaining the essential elements required to confirm origin, destination, postal service utilised, and to determine and confirm the franking. Rod Perry, in Australian Stamp News (Nov 2012) stated "I rate this survivor, against the odds, as one of the ten greatest items of Australian Commonwealth Philately." Most major Commonwealth collections, past and present, including Australia Post Archival Collection and The Royal Collection, have relatively poor usage representation (most had/have none). At last the opportunity to acquire this unrivalled Kangaroo usage article is available. Historial notes: 1. The recipient of the original parcel Donald James Harkness (1898-1972) was a pioneer in the Australian automotive and aeronautical industries, and a record-breaking racing car driver; the first Australian to exceed 100mph over a measured mile. The subject parcel is believed to have contained an automotive part, dispatched during an endurance trial across Northern Australia. 2. The destination, Newcastle Waters, a 10,353 sq km breeding property in the West Barkly region of the Northern Territory, was once owned by the late Kerry Packer, for decades Australia's richest person. 80,000.00 This lot is no longer available
