These were the two postally used sets sold yesterday.
I have NEVER seen the complete used set listed up on stampboards or eBay. MUH and CTO yes, but never USED!
Glen using those as franking is GREAT -- Even as CTO they are worth more than face! Such a beautiful issue, and a missing set from many Australian collections.
There are sheets of CTO of these which have the MEL GPO Laser printed postmark, which of course are worth less than these ones woith CASTLECRAG CDS. It was mentioned in another thread that a dealer was selling the MEL CTO sheets for $5 each -- under half face value is very cheap!
This set would have to be one of my favourite Australian sets, I have a set of CTO strips, a MUH sheet, a few commercially used sets.... Doubt you would find many on commercial cover!
Stamp collecting is never boring, because there is always something to look for..... Tooler's
sheets are likely to sell fast at the price of $12.50 -- Every collector/dealer can turn postage costs into a PROFIT if we use decent franking.
