Thought it was time to take a look at the story of Norfolk Island stamp. It is interesting that while Norfolk Island has never been used in Australia, Norfolk Island used Australia between the 19th and 1947 as it was. The Australia Post has a large stamp and post office stamp library of Norfolk Island, compiled by the deceased Ray Blinman, who was bought in 1995.

Many of the Ball Bay postage-stamps have a rich history behind them. In 1937, however, it was resolved to establish its own post office on the island of Norfolk. A number of postage stamps with Ball Bay on the southeast coastline of Norfolk Island would be the first one.

It was created and etched by Frank Manley, although the designing was unbelievably sluggish. At that time, the postage stamps had to be authorized by the Department of the Prime Minister. Only in April 1939 did the approval for the engravings come, and the engravings were not authorised until January 1940.

Australian Saintamp Monthly had announced in January 1940 that the postage would be available in three month and the print began seriously. Norfolk Island's music department was instructed to keep their postage-tape holdings until the Norfolk Island Post Office made the necessary administration precautions.

There were other issues even when it was agreed in February 1946 that the Norfolk Island Ball Bay edition would be out. From December 1941, a half pfennig military duty was levied on each item of mail. That means that the whole edition had to be re-printed - almost 590,000 philately!

When this happened, it was not until 10 June 1947 that Norfolk Island set up its own mail system and released the Ball Bay postage-tags. Possibly because of the efforts that went into the first few years of printing, the postage was in use for 16 years, until 1963 even (including various reproductions and color changes for two values).

In 1956-57, the four dies used on the web offset machine are on thin sheet of cardboard and the inks appear softer. There was also a variation in the type of document used between the 1947 edition and later editions. The 1947 edition of Ball Bay used a cream-colored, coated, non-watermarked piece ofaper. In spite of the demolition of the 1940 Ball Bay postage stamp, around 1959 copies of the 1940 edition were published for purchase in England.

Thievery of these postage was part of a wider stock of Aussie postage that included defects of some kind, such as perforations, intended for damage. Of course, these postage-stamps are appreciated by the public! Are you a collectionist with an established order, you can change it to get Norfolk Island postage-packs.
