Brand New of course, and my price below INCLUDES the full prices realised list. Essential. I'd sold out lonnnnng ago at $100 plus post.
The largest grossing stamp auction sale ever held here - about $3 Million and a total sell out - far more details here - https://glenstephens.com/sndecember15.html
Without doubt THE finest Auction sale catalogue ever printed in this country - more of a perpetual Australia KGV Heads and Commemortives Handbook actually.
This sale was a combination of just two of the very many Arthur Gray “Exhibit” collections – the “Australia KGV Definitive Stamps” and the “KGV Commemorative stamps”.
They earned TEN International Large Golds between them. And many International Golds, and many top national awards too. Not bad for a bloke who had never exhibited until 17 years before.
The sale contained not only the “KGV heads” issues in huge depth, but all the KGV era Commemoratives, the 5/- Harbour Bridge in full sheet etc, many 1927 Canberra imperfs, and corner Plate Numbers and retouches, and re-entries, and Officials etc.
https://tinyurl.com/GrayKGV is the detailed ongoing discussion here on stampboards of this sale, and was the first report anywhere on this major event. Many of the other stamp photos from his good friend Geoff, are on that link, for those interested, plus the high prices obtained.
HUGE colour photos of all the Rarities, and deeply grained "Leather" cover etc.
Cost price from Auction house initially was $100 plus post, and for anyone who still does not have one, this deal is WAY better!
ONE Book $A65(Stock 368WF)
TWO Books - $A110 (Stock 368WG)
FIVE Books - $A185 (Stock 368WH)
OVERSEAS for 1 copy, add about $A30 to above for untracked postage to most places. (Stock 368WJ)
ALL sendings use real postage stamps of course. 8)
Let me know re other queries, or extra copies etc. The 2 and 4 copies deal is a beauty - many savvy buyers will keep one, and ebay off the other(s) - (I saw one get $150 online!) or sell to a friend/s at the Club etc, hence making their copy basically "FREE" with any luck!
Order NOW, as when sold out they are gone forever. Superb reference books like these hold their re-sale value eternally.
Global Administrator - at the time catalogue was issued wrote:
I've a box of "Gray KGV" on way to me, for anyone who wants one, as a reference "Leather" cover hard bound Library addition.
I use my "Kangaroos" every week or so, even now. The 11 page Dr. Kellow preface article in the KGV outlined above is worth getting the book for - alone!
A huge 270 x large A4 pages, and weight is 1.5 kgs or 3.3 lbs, and the best stamp auction catalogue you'll ever see, A KGV reference book in its own right.
These front cover gems found a new home at $185,000
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.

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website https://www.glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) 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:
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, 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!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://tinyurl.com/GlenSpec
All stampboards lots $A100 and under are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at YOUR total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 10 years have been safe by normal post.
Orders over $100 are normally sent Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A16 ($US12) extra foreign, depending on weight. Only YOU know if your street or Apartment 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/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are FAR safer.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered - and all are strongly advised to use this, and I will, 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 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 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"!
