A LIL' NOTE
My first Australia first day cover. Such beautiful stamp issue, of which inspired me to start my first day cover collection.
Two technical details for this issue are however not available - paper used as well as printing process. If any one you have such details, would appreciate if you could furnish them to me. Thanks so much :)
