wpeF9.jpg (175641 bytes) This corner block of 6 shows the salient features of the sheet. The imprint appears in the lower left corner, with a sheet number on left side.

In later Chambon issues, this number applied to every second sheet of the rotating cylinder.

Stamps issued to commemorate the 7th British Empire and Commonwealth Games.

The stamps were printed overseas in the expectation that the recently purchased Chambon presses would not be ready in time. These, and the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, are the only stamps not printed in Australia.
