Cocos Island 2013, $3 Stamp Booklets – 100 exist globally - now sold out it seems here.
Christmas Island 1996 Stamp Booklet.
I bought a small quantity of these last year from Dr. William Mayo.
Only 100 were made of the Cocos, and as his letter indicated, most were cancelled First Day, June 4, 2013. (Cocos now sold out)
I bought all his mint Cocos booklets I gather, as that is how most booklet collectors prefer them – mint, and not cancelled. Bill formed the very finest world stamp booklet collection of our generation, and he liked Booklets cancelled where possible!
Not a silly idea – he had most copies of the Christmas Island 1996 SG SB1a – all cancelled, which is in SG already for £650 = $A1,300. Only 2 of those mint are recorded.
I have never seen these new Cocos offered before ANYWHERE, and I have not offered them before, indeed they have been sitting buried on my desk for the past 18 months, waiting for a “spare” 15 minutes to scan, and list them up.
The first Christmas Island booklets were in 1996, SG #SB1 Cat £160 ($A320), and I still have a few of those CTO 1996 on front cover in stock, with Fish stamps for $A200 each (Stock 682ER) for anyone missing those. (Sel Pfeffer Booklet Cat BK 1, $400 for the Fish Stamps, and BK 1a with Shell stamps - $A900)
This Cocos Booklet is now listed and priced globally in Stanley Gibbons, and soon to be in the Seven Seas “ASC” I believe, and I understand I was the only dealer to obtain mint stock of this tiny print.
Bill Mayo told me he’d sent 1 book of these across to Stanley Gibbons London to auction, and said it got £160 or something ($A320) but sadly their on-line past catalogues are not archived. Not sure if Buyer Fee and VAT was on top of that figure?
1 x Mint Christmas Island 1996 Booklet, SG SB#1 with 1996 cds on front cover as shown - $A200 (Stock 682ER)
Be quick, these will not last long, and when they are gone - the fun begins!

And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again.

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website https://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here, in case something else appeals:
And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: https://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers, and offer it here at NETT prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my NETT prices, as in auction!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://tinyurl.com/GlenSpec
All stampboards lots $A100 and under are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at YOUR total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 10 years have been safe by normal post.
Orders over $100 are normally sent Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local, and about $A14 ($US10) extra foreign, depending on weight. Only YOU know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a large packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only YOU know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy and leave packets on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are FAR safer.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered - and all are strongly advised to use this, and I will, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - https://tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it 3 weeks back, and you now need to cancel your ticket for no penalty, and see how you go with THAT one!
As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue.
For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
