This blog is devoted to the 1st Queensland sideface stamps (1878/9-1881), a fascinating aspect of Queensland philately. It is a work in progress and aims for comprehensiveness. There were five issues, 1d reddish brown / scarlet, 2d blue, 4d yellow, 6d green and 1 shilling violet / lilac, also a 1d overprint and 1d stamp duty. The stamps come from my and other collections, Ebay, Queensland Stamp Collecting Facebook Group, Stampboards.com & auctions. Contact:email@example.com.
