Australia 1980s FDCs x 110 - PO cost $179 - $A60

Values to $5 - mostly different.

Cat will be about $400.

Mostly 1980s but some high cat earlies like 1972 Xmas, and 1973 National Dev etc. Official PO covers.

Many folks forget how HIGH the USED sets are priced in SG from this era.

The SG Cat gives the following as a cross section of the late 1970s to late 1980s era USED price that I often offer here from Estates. And AAT too.

This list is just a sample, and as you can see, in some cases the SG price is 10 to 43 times the FACE, and off me you are paying MILES under face. :)

Pricey se-tenant strips 5, se-tenant pairs, and mini sheets, and high retail commem sets etc, even some AAT - exactly as received from Estate today.

Not all these will be in all lots of these I offer, depending on what era the owner bought, but these are generally included, as you can see from the photos above - and MANY more similar are too.

1978 Cricket - Face $1.35 - SG Cat £4 = $A8½
1978 Trees - Face $1.28 - SG Cat £3.75 = $A8
1978 Horses - Face $1.60 - SG Cat £3 = $A6½
1979 Ferries - Face $A1.60 - SG Cat £3 = $A6½
1980 Dogs - Face $1.95 - SG Cat £4 = $A8½
1981 Fungi - Face $1.74 - SG Cat £3.50 = $A7½
1981 Wales - Face $1.74 - SG Cat £3.25 = $A7
1982 Roses - Face = $A2.10 - SG Cat £3.50 = $A7½
1982 Eucalyptus - Face 44c - SG Cat £5 = $A12 (SG is 27 times face)
1983 AAT Wildlife Strip 5 - Face $A1.35 = SG Cat £4 = $A8½
1984 Airmail - Face 90c - SG Cat £2.50 = $A5½
1985 Military Uniform - Face $1.78 - SG Cat £3.25 = $A70
1985 BiCent M/sheet - Face $1.89 - SG Cat £4.50 = $A10
1985 Bicentenary - Face $2.75 - SG Cat £6 = $A13
1986 Alpine flowers - Face 69c - SG Cat £6.75 = $A15 (SG is 22 times face)
1986 90c Explorer pair - Face $1.80 - SG Cat £5.50 = $A12
1986 Orchid - Face $2.81 - SG Cat £7.50 = $A16
1987 Fruit - Face $2.91 - SG Cat £6.50 = $A14½
1987 Aboriginal Crafts - Face $1.29 - SG Cat £11.50 = $A25
1987 Agricultural Shows - Face $2.91 - SG Cat £6.50 = $A13
1988 Australian Crafts - Face 46c - SG Cat £10 = $A22 -(SG = 48 times face)
1989 Sheep - Face $2.63 - SG Cat £5.50 = $A12
1988 AAT Environment Strip 5 - Face $1.85 - SG Cat £5.50 = $A12



All the goodies are here as you can readily see from the photos - totally untouched and unpicked by me as always, “as received” for all the superb topicals and thematics etc.

Usual odd age blemish etc here and there as always of these, due to 50 year old age on some, but a SUPERBLY good lot at this price, and remember even if you choose to soak off the odd one for “VFU”, they are still great value - and worth WAY over $60!

On ebay, results are often superb on these, when offered singly or in groups of each year etc, when they have a free listing day. An Orchid set with SG cat $A15 often gets $5 to $7 from topical collectors, or 5 times your cost etc. Maybe keep the better sets for yourself, and sell off the others, so as you get the ones you retain totally FREE?

The Post Office charged 40c above face for each cover, so a $5 stamp on FDC cost $A5.40 to buy etc - 30+ years back.

This is just $US36 right now! The PO COST was about $A180!

$A60 plus Global Post



Call it - "Aust FDCs: Stock 795QW" - 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 often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:


All payment details etc are on: https://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 - https://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 - https://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 https://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: 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 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 - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://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. :idea:

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. :idea:

"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 - 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 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! :lol: :lol:

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"!
