My New Website for Collectors of Australian Varieties

It's been a very long time since my last blog, but I'm hoping to get back to blogging regularly.

I've created a website of high resolution scans of varieties on Australian stamps, the Australian Commonwealth Stamps Varieties Image Database.

The Australian Commonwealth Specialists Catalogue is the "bible" for collectors, but the images are quite poor. I hope my site can help collectors to identify varieties more readily.

The site is still quite bare, but new images are being uploaded daily. If you think the site will help you, please bookmark it and pop back often. You can also subscribe to receive advice of updates.You can even make a small donation if you have a mind to!


  1. This site is a lifesaver! The high res photos make identifying photos much easier than using a guide book, since you can save the photos and zoom in to look at exact details to match up your own stamps. This website has been an invaluable resource for my collection – thanks so much!
