Cutting from The Sun newspaper, printed 19 September 1984, promoting the forthcoming Ausipex 84 exhibition to be held at the Royal Exhibition Building, 21-30 September 1984. The article titled "Aloha! It's the death stamp", written by Ricki Beckmann, recounts the story of the murder of Gaston Leroux, philatelist and owner of the infamous 'Hawaiian Missionary' stamp.

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.
