Australia 5/- 10/- Robes stamps used in PNG $A65
Very cool. You NEVER see the 10/- high value – especially in a joined pair as the £1 was of course used!
In Jul 2, 1947 The Government Gazette authorised the use of the current Aust Defin stamps in PNG. And until the first PNG Defin appeared in 1952, that remained the case.
Near all seen are the very low values used on letter mail. The high face 10/- is scarce – indeed used in Aust it is not common! All with dated cds. All are in clean condition. SG Cat £36 as used in Australia!
With dated VIOLET ink cds of ‘BWAGAOIA - 2 SE 50 - PAPUA NEW GUINEA’ 99% of parcel use was from Port Moresby, Lae or Rabaul - never seen this small town before.
From the quite massive THREE Generation, “Townsville North Queensland Hoard” collection we flew back with - in 8 huge removalist cartons - http://tinyurl.com/TownsV Formed around issue time of the stamps, and I am very slowly working through it, and listing up a few more interesting pieces that catch my eye, whenever I get 10 minutes spare, here and there!
Will take me 10 more years to wade through it all. I grab a few now and again, and scan and add them up here.
None of these stamps has EVER been on the stamp market before, in the past Century or so. You will be the FIRST collector to own these since!
$A65 plus $A3 Global Post
Call it - "PNG 10/- Robes : Stock 345LA" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlenOrder And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again.
All payment details etc are on: http://tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE VFU franking is used whenever possible, when I mail (depending on how busy PO counter is!) and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - http://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - http://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet.
Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website http://glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals.
And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: http://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use cards - and Amex is accepted too.
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - http://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and http://tinyurl.com/StampDeals Unless noted by me, all stampboards lots priced *$A100 and under* are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at *YOUR* total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1,000s of my transactions here for 15 years have been delivered safely by normal post.
Orders over $100 are ALWAYS sent Registered (Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Letter size FOREIGN are usually only $3.50 untracked. Smallish large packet items FOREIGN up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in pre-paid Reg’d envelopes cost $17 total, dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! Only *YOU* know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a 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, or mailed to your work address are FAR safer, if you are not home during day.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered locally, or $3 per $100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - http://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 out 3 weeks back, and ‘you now need to cancel your ticket, with no nasty penalty please’, 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"!
