My Australian supplier sent me a few items between 1971 and 2006 where I had sold out of copies. His notes told me that quite a few of these were the key values in the set and of course that is why I had sold out. In a separate envelope, he sent me the new issue of Citizen Science: 4 values plus 4 values self-adhesive.

With a new month beginning, it is time to analyse last month’s performance. It has broken previous records. The number of sales was well up on last month. Commonwealth areas continued to be the pace setters with Australia + Canada still doing well. Many other countries were popular too. Belgium, France, Finland, Poland and USA were strong. All parts of Germany are seeing a resurgence with the exception of DDR. French and Portuguese Colonies performed well.
