An unrecognised and potentially valuable collection of frama stamps are readily available via ebay.
Introduced to Australia in 1984 and discontinued in 2004 it is not hard to build a definitive collection. The individual value is small, but as always the search is for the scarce.
As a guide to Australia's history and sociology frama stamps provide a snapshot of the last 2 decades of the 20th century. Look for cancels from warships in the persian gulf, special events such as the Sydney Olympics and the America's cup.
As always, stamp collectors should think laterally there are always great tie-ins such as whales, air races and flowers. If you want an elephant stamp well framas can oblige.
This will be the start of a fascination, hopefully a good investment and certainly a passion.
