Australia - BCOF Collection Page Scans

The Australia - BCOF set of stamps were used by the Australian Occupation Forces in Japan. They were overprinted using Australian stamps from the 1937 set. As is frequently the case with overprinted stamps there are numerous print errors found in the type that was used for the overprint. You will also find different color shades and ink colors as well as thin paper issues. So it is an interesting set to study.

The pages are from my collection, and are identified by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that order. The page images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free to select the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your hard drive for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will typically open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default). From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.

Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for each page to load.
