Summary

An unused aerogramme, issued to commemorate the Ausipex 84 international stamp exhibition, held at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, 21-30 September 1984. Ausipex was held under the auspices of: The Royal Philatelic Society of Victoria; the Victorian Philatelic Associations and other Philatelic Societies; the Victorian Stamp Promotion Council, and the Australasian Stamp Dealers Association with the co-operation of Australia Post. Ausipex was the largest philatelic exhibition ever staged in Australasia. The exhibition was a combination of displays, competitive entries and trade; there were approximately 100 stands of dealers and overseas postal administrators.

Aerogrammes are thin lightweight pieces of foldable and gummed paper for writing a letter for transit via airmail. This aerogramme features an illustration of the Royal Exhibition Building, an imprinted Ausipex stamp, a stamp indicating the aerogramme was carried on the 50th centenary of the London to Melbourne air race, and a franking mark for Aerophilately Day, 23 September 1984.
