$3,150 face value of Australia fresh CTO $1.05 stamps in sheets. Just $155! UNDER 5% of face.


What an amazing buy I made today. As everyone knows, I get some pretty incredible things offered to me - and this surely is one of the best deals ever. I pay IMMEDIATELY, and I buy it ALL, so I get the juicy offers. :mrgreen:

As you can see these are full flat PO sheets of 100 of the Australia 1992 $1.05 'Space Year' high value.

I bought a folder of full sheets. All fresh CTO with full gum at Melbourne. Three sheets of 100 are shown above. Offer 'A' of 10 sheets covers a dinner table!

SG 1344, Cat £1.25 each. The Michel catalogue is even a tad higher than SG - Michel 1298 = 1.7E each - or cat about $A3 EACH in Michel as used.

A - 10 sheets is 1000 stamps. The FACE is $A1,050 - SG 1344 - Cat £1,250 - $A75

B - 20 sheets is 2000 stamps. The face is $A2,100 - SG 1344 - Cat £2,500 - $A125

C - 30 sheets is 3000 stamps. The face is $A3,150 - SG 1344 - Cat £3,750 - $A155

The latter is UNDER 5% of FACE VALUE!
NEVER in history have these been offered at anything like this low. They often change hands for about HALF face in dealer lots.

The possibilities here are endless. Offer them on ebay etc, at a starting price of say 15% of face - i.e. sell a full sheet 100 for $15.75 and that sees you more than TREBLE your money. And as each sheet has a Gibbons of £125 or 175 Euro .. you'd very likely get a LOT more than $A15 a sheet if ran to ebay auction!

Most ESPECIALLY if you list these on ebay or Europe UK. Dealers there would likely buy them off you at that level? The FACE of each sheet is $A105. :mrgreen:

You could use these for exchanges - just 4 sheets of 100 gives you a SG Cat of £500 or 680 Euro (=$A1,200)... yet costs you just $A20! Think of the "catalogue for catalogue" swap deals you can do on THAT leverage!

Take a full sheet to your next Club 'sale by tender' Auction - your cost per sheet is about $A5 .... don't you imagine you'd get double or treble that easily for a sheet with a face value of $A105??

You could even place 10 or 20 of these into public auctions with an estimate of 10% of face, and you'd double your money if they sold at that. And being unusual - with 2 bidders you may be astounded what price they get.

I have the only large stock of these in existence .. and after these, there are NO more. When they are sold - well too bad, you missed out. Perhaps pop a few of these in the "Bottom Drawer" - you'll never seen this low a price again. Remember - "Lay By" is always fine .. pay them off over a while if you wish.

The original owner of this large hoard from the date of issue is now in his mid 80s, and in poor health, and has known me for 30 years. He mailed them to me, as he knew I'd pay him immediately, (indeed I paid his asking price in full, in advance) and he knew I would not mess him about.

Central design element is the famous "The Pleiades" - https://www.naic.edu/~gibson/pleiades/

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or ozstamps) here (or on my website) 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:

https://www.stampboards.com/viewforum.php?f=27

All payment details are on - https://www.glenstephens.com/payment.html - I even take $US Greenbacks banknotes, or ANY current paper currency!

Call it "CTO Sheets $1.05 Space Year " (and be sure to note whether offer A/B/C!) And postage is $A7 anywhere in Aust Reg'd post for 10 or 20 sheets --- and please order via:

https://www.glenstephens.com/order.html

For overseas members, to find out the approx cost in YOUR currency, click here - https://www.xe.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

- and "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com

And many similar mouth watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto -

https://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html and https://www.glenstephens.com/specials.html

As per stampboard rules - this lot is offered exclusively to board members - and on no other sales venue.

And remember - I use a PAPER based credit card transaction system as I am too lazy to get a machine. In general, you will almost certainly be charged weeks after you get the goods, as I do such boring things in large batches "when I get time". 8)

For members who make a BANK TRANSFER payment you WILL generally get your goods faster as it saves me some hassle. :).

All orders can de done, as I had a good size folder of these and have quite a few sheets more. :D

And for those ordering, please let me know if you want this option below - I am assuming Tassie_Stamps will for sure, as he will I am certain break them down from sheet form and this just gives him more for his buck. :) (His Reg'd post is $A6)

Some of the sheets have a few storage bends/creases etc or some selvege bends etc. If you are happy to take those, as you will be breaking them down anyway into part sheets, gutters or blocks or singles etc, they will still be perfect ..... these are USED stamps after all. So you can even soak the few with bends and they'll dry perfectly fine and flat. HOWEVER, as this saves me time and hassle to cull those sheets, and as I HATE messy fiddly stuff like that, you get a bonus - if you say you are happy to take those sheets, and I'll add a GOOD deal more stamps FREE to your order. i.e. around 22 sheets of 100 and not 20. So you cost then goes WAY under 5% face -- and way under 5c apiece! Then you get to mess about for 30 minutes with them your end, and not ME!

------------

Tassie if you fill out an order form as requested they can be mailed pretty quick -

Matthew - Reg'd Post cost to you is $A7 - identical figure whether you order 10 sheets or 20 sheets, so lets go with that - $125 plus $7 and I add in some freebies OK? :)

Talk about good timing! I meant to mail off the KGVI Defins on pages yesterday, but time beat me.

Anyway these can go in that packet, so you saved quite a nice sum in extra postage!

10 sheets of Pleiades and the 1937 definitives arrived safely last Wednesday, thankyou. :D :D

Postage was great, as usual. Mini-sheets and blocks from the 1990's, and the 5c Hudson- Fysh se-tenant strip from 1969, 15c worth of stamps now catalogued at $3.50. :)

A block of 9 is cat. $15.00. For 45c worth of stamps. :!: :!:
