Q: What is a Supplement?
Each year we produce a set of album pages for each country to house the
standard issue of stamps released in the previous year. This set of pages
is called a supplement for the particular year. Supplements are available
individually for each country for at least the last 10 years.
Q: What are Optional Pages?
These are pages that are the same format as the annual supplements but are
designed to accommodate items that are not included in the supplement.
Items such as Exhibition Overprints, complete Booklets, Vending Machine
Stamps, Perforation Variations, Koala Reprints and many others.

We maintain stocks of Australia, AAT, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas

listed as sets, eg. 444z, only the complete set can be purchased.
Single stamps from within the set will not be supplied.

MUH means in original condition as issued by the Post Office.
It means the same as MNH (in USA), UMM (in UK) and **(in Europe).

postally used, or for more recent issues, cancelled to order (CTO).
