Mayo formed a superb STAMP COLLECTION of St. Helena, from earliest known 19th Century covers etc, and with Richard Peck punished a monograph on the collection.
Bill even bought a home there in St. Helena (pretty hard as they are so few!)and visited there a few times - his earliest visit was 1950s as I recall - had photos in the book.
Anyway he assembled this cool lot. The heavy thick UK style cards, and FACE is about $A550.
Telephone cards from St Helena x 54 face value £274=$A550 - 9 different designs, all issued about 1990 I'd guess, as Bill visited there at that time as I recall.
These are SCARCE - a dealer who specialised in there has strong prices - the scarce £2 Gardens one Bill had 21 copies of - retail of each is £12 - or SIX times face as you can see - And lots of scarce £5 value as well.
Anyway, an ebay re-seller super bargain deal at near a QUARTER face and probably this is 10% of retail! NO-ONE else will be offering them, at ANY price, that is for sure - check - ZERO other sellers! Super popular country too.
Did my June 30 stocktake this month, and want some of these unusual lots turned into CASH fast - so priced LOW! To a UK buyer only £75 the lot - about a QUID apiece, and many £15 face values here.
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.
For overseas members, to find out the approx 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 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
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. I can often send them tracked mail - no compo cover on those. 1,000s 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 with no nasty penalty please, 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"!
