I really think the NSW field has unlimited upside.

I listed these "RRRRR" superb cancels below on my Rarity Page this week, and each only costs what the book does now!

Prices for NSW are in their very infancy. The highest ever price paid for a NSW "RRRRR" cancel is $A825 for an indistinct 971 of Mount Poole – i.e. - https://tinyurl.com/FreemNSW

We have seen Victoria, WA and Tassie cancels get 4 figures, and this SA one on a common stamp getting $A4,140 at auction - https://tinyurl.com/SNFeb

These pieces of very top rated Rarity gradings would be 4 figures from the other states, but from NSW are still the bridge of the mint 5/- Bridge.

In a very few years time my guess is nothing in a full "RRRRR" will be under $1000. It only takes FIVE serious new well-heeled collectors globally to take them up, and 'game-on' ... many of these top ratings are unique, and 5 guys keenly bidding on something there is one of, usually gives interesting results. :lol: :lol: :lol:

(A) “873” superb strike of WHEALBAH on pair 2d Blues. $A425 (B) “1533” of Acacia/Limestone on 2 x 2d and a 1d with the “Limestone” tie of Dec 4, 1901. $A475 (C) “1010” 2 lovely full strikes on 3 x 1d Red and 2d Blue Reg’d piece and “TIN TIN HULL" - SP 1:99” cds $A500 - or THREE for just $A1,300 - the bare starting point for any single top end cancel from some other states!

Thanks. I should have realized that, my copy is #164.

It had occurred to me that the "#" in the cyber post was a reference to a "£" sign, they way some people in the U.S. use an "L" for it.

Then, of course, being the sceptic that I am, I thought to myself "well surely one could not have realized £195 at auction," only to be pleasantly surprised by the information in the post above from manfaefife.

Kindest regards, Richard

Good top end philatelic literature has almost always been a good investment, as witnessed by this book. Usually a too small print run, marginal PR so that most potential purchasers are unaware until too late, and people not wanting to spend the $$ on a book.

Seems like the price has collapsed. (Although $A75 for post is a howler!) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Early Auction sales were about $A430 here - see below.

The couple of dozen I sold to members here will see many large smiles, as they were sold at way under half that figure at $A160 for those fast on the draw, and who ordered based on my first email on these.

I got accused of gouging by some when I bought out another dealer, and offered those at $A225. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

NEVER be nervous when buying Limited Edition works of high interest topics. :idea:

The data inside is often priceless, AND the books double or treble in price!

The copy of the Freeman cancels book at Status Auctions just sold for $A350 excluding the auctioneer's fee which I think is 15.5%, so around $400 all up + postage and packing
Not even close really. :)

Unlike this client friendly dealer who charges no buyer fees, and no credit card fees ( :lol: ) , Status Auctions charge 16.5% on hammer price. And then an 2% extra to pay by Visa and Mastercard, and 3% extra by Amex -

https://www.statusint.com/payment.php

So someone was invoiced $350 + 16.5% + 2% Visa fee, plus post = $A430 minimum. :)
Lovers of superb books might like to consider this below for the library and the info. I bought a carton of these to offer at LESS THAN ISSUE PRICE. In Library storage box. I am taking several down to Melbourne show with me for clients to hand collect.

Down the track these will get huge prices. Much more info and more pix here -

All concerned

There is absolutely no doubt about it, the John Barwis book on the Half-Lengths of Victoria is a work of genius, well laid out and beautifully presented. I bought my copy directly from the author himself at a U.S. A.P.S. Stampshow a couple or so years ago.

The book gets my highest recommendation.

Of course the subject matter, much like Plating G.B. Penny Red Perforated Stars, is one of the greats, the kind that separates, as my late Dad used to like to put it, "the men from the boys."

Kindest regards

Hi Glen-do you a cd copy left perchance?
If so I would dearly love to take it off you.

Not cheap, but neither is the $1,000 cancel you might find, the very first time you use it! :lol: :lol:

Certainly worked for me !! :D :D

Here are a few that I recently discovered!! :shock:

I am not even a quarter through my NSW collection, and thanks to the excellent NSW Numerical Cancellations book I bought off Glen, I wouldn't ever have known!! :D

The matching hard cover VICTORIA Freeman cancels book is worth getting too - this cancel on a defective stamp just sold for $A8,685 at Public Auction on a low estimate. :mrgreen:

Was sitting totally un-noticed in a chap's stockbook of duplicates until someone at the auction house spotted it! :lol: :lol: :lol:

A nice timely bump, given it's ten years since the first edition was released.

So, where did that decade go?
