A few advance copies in stock NOW for instant delivery globally. I understand I have the only dealer stock in Australia as I type this.
If you only buy one catalogue each decade, whether you are dealer or a collector or Auction, you MUST have this.
My detailed review of this is here in "Stamp News" - gives you an idea of detailed content in here-
I was the first dealer on earth to offer this for sale, and show the front cover.
The most common innocuous looking thing on your desk might be valued at ten times the purchase price of this catalogue.
The front cover 1d Lettercard is Cat $5,000 - there are 5 different views recorded on these, all $5,000 - although Elephants stacking timber in Adelaide defies the imagination, as to why it was ever designed! This is the EXACT sort of thing an overseas seller would list on eBay or their website at $50 or so, and prays someone orders it.
All the "PTPO" (Printed To Private Order) issues are listed in great detail, and many run many $1000s each – did YOU know that?
The one shown below no overseas dealer would price more than $10 or so I'd bet. It is cat $7,500 - indeed it sold for more than that at public auction. 8)
There are HUNDREDS of items in here listed at between $5,000 and $15,000 EACH.
EVERY item is illustrated in colour (reduced in size of course) – a GODSEND for many of the earlier Registration envelopes etc. (Only about 4 pieces in entire book they were unable to get copies of to scan!)
Very coolly, all down the outer spine is colour coded to go to Wrappers go right to BLUE tagged edges. For postcards go to PURPLE tags etc. A breeze to use quickly, as I need to do each day.
I HATED using the initial huge ring binder edition as time went on, as the printer punched the holes way too small in my view. Making finding any given section was a juggling act, risking damaging all earlier pages each time. This one is a BREEZE to use.
For instance ALL the “View” Lettercards are now all illustrated and priced SEPARATELY – some 170 different! Some of these are worth a fortune, and dealers and collectors without this book have not got a CLUE as to what is scarce, and what is not.
You will easily pay for this book with the first vaguely scarce view you pick up on ebay etc.
There are all the Aerograms illustrated - many quite valuable, all the wide range of Military material, WW2 Food Parcel labels (one is cat $10,000, and another $7,500), and even all the myriad of different views on the initial 1911 “Coronation" set. All priced separately.
The highest price I sighted in here is $15,000 for a KGV low face value reply card, that I bet a lot of overseas (even local!) sellers would price at $20 retail, and cross their fingers!
It is huge - near 500 large A4 pages, on quality grade paper, in full colour - all proudly printed and produced here in Sydney Australia.
It lists and prices all stationery from the first 1911 Australia issue “The Coronation Series” postcards - right up until the last QE2 pre-decimal stationary issues for Australia and all the “Territories”.
Edited by Dr. Geoff Kellow, the usual super high standard of original research work and fine attention to detail has taken place here.
Geoff told me much of his original research on numbers printed of the early issues has never been published before the ACSC did these.
Not only Australia is covered, but the “Territories” and that includes all the “Formular” Aerograms and airletters etc.
And all the Papua early issues, and GRI material, and PNG and Cocos and Christmas Islands etc. This is all listed and priced.
This are HEAVY - over 2 kilos (near 5 lbs) when packed.
For foreign orders I will send Registered Post, and as always use use stunning CTO full gum that you will be able to sell for FAR MORE than issue cost the moment you get it, I’ll wager.
Nice stamps used on all parcels. 8)
Call it - "Postal Stat : Stock 782DV" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlensOrder
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.
All payment details etc are on: https://www.tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE franking is used when I mail : see member pix of that franking here - https://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO - and COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money buying more than 1 lot at once!
For overseas members, to find out the approx cost in YOUR currency, click here - https://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, these prices are REALLY cheap in your money!
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet.
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 minimum $A16 ($US12) 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"!
