STOP PRESS! Brusden White ACSC “KGVI” Australia Catalogue Just out!
Thicker, and with much more detail than the ancient NINE year old Edition.
ESSENTIAL BOOK. Many huge price increases.
Issued today, and I have some copies in my hands ALREADY, packed ready to mail.
Edited by Dr. Geoffrey Kellow, this "King George VI", includes proofs, and incorporates new research.
Additional plate varieties and enhanced illustrations have been added, with UPU Specimen and cancelled-to-order stamps, and including all 1946 BCOF Japan issues etc.
Third edition, 280 pages, softbound, issued April 17, 2015
A ton of upward priced movement. Some things have increased TEN times in value on some of the 1946 BCOF items, adding $100s of value in one edition to one medium stamp.
Some pieces have doubled or more from already high prices, like 1/- Lyrebird “Green Mist Retouch” moving from $2,000 to $5,000.
The 10/- Arms inverted watermark goes from $5,000 to $10,000. And expensive “Thin” papers are now listed for first time for some of the “Arms” values, and other Definitives of this era. Often many $1000s apiece, so one find will readily pay for this catalogue five times over. I sold a set 3 a few weeks back with a Thin paper 10/- in it, and as ACSC did not list thin paper for any value assumed I was dreaming. The OTHER 2 are now listed for $1000 hinged each!
Some of the popular errors like the 1942 6d Kookaburra “Top Hat Variety” go up near 10 fold, from $250 to $2,000 mint. I sold one for $100 last year, so someone will be delighted!
Imprint blocks seem priced up all over the reign - often trebling or trebling in value. And coil pairs and other plate varieties see huge increases in many areas. CTO values are often double old prices. FDC values are generally up, and up on piece or cover etc also heavily re-worked.
This catalogue annoyingly uses ACSC numbers in this edition that in last one were something else entirely. There seems no good reason for this other than the create mass confusion, but not having the current book will give you headaches at times.
$A100 POSTED anywhere in Australia … many dealers will be asking $100 PLUS shipping, and this is a heavy book. Add $5 to that if Registered required domestically, and on this value I’d certainly advise it.
Canada/USA is $A120 Registered Air and Europe $125 Registered Air
Or totally at your risk unsigned for, untracked post is -
Canada/USA is $A110, and Europe is $A115
Nice VFU stamps used in ALL cases from ME! That is just $US84 posted, right now.
One European member paid for unsigned for mail on his "KGV" ACSC and never got it, and has given me non-stop grief about if for months. I do not run the PO. You want to save a few bucks, and risk it being stolen from your letterbox, your call entirely!
Call it - "ACSC KGVI – Stock 584HB" - please order via SECURE site: -
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.

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 - 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
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" to add to my prices, as in auction!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto -

All stampboards lots $A200 and under are always mailed Unregistered and untracked, unless you specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 8 years have been safe by normal post.
If Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) is required, clearly STATE that on order form - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A15 extra foreign. Only YOU know if your street 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 out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are far safer.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, at $A2 per $100 covered - again it must be specified on order form. 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 payment you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
