Cutting from The Sun newspaper, printed 22 September 1984, promoting the Ausipex 84 exhibition to be held at the Royal Exhibition Building, 21-30 September 1984. An article titled "Stamps back home as a gift", describes the gift to Australia Post by the British Postal Museum of 900 rare, West Australian colonial stamps printed in England in 1860. The announcement of the gift coincided with the opening of the international stamp collectors' fair, Ausipex 84.

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.
