YEAR OF THE DOG


In 1993, Telstra registered a copyright for their phonecards. As such, this copyright was placed on the reverse of all cards from that point onwards as
Telstra Corporation Limited 1993.

When 1994 came around, somebody at Telstra thought that the copyright date needed to be changed to 1994.
This occurred on a few different cards, until the mistake was noticed, and the correct date of 1993 was then subsequently used for all future cards.

In the Year Of The Dog set, every card has the date error.
