Gilbert and Ellice ''Christmas Island'' BFPO Nuclear Testing Forces 1956-58 covers x 6
NOTE .. this is not the better known to collectors, of Christmas Island 5000 miles away in the INDIAN Ocean!
"Forces Air Mail' concession rate singles on 3 covers. Complete with useful collector notes.
The other 3 covers the senders has cunningly used BOOKLET PANES of 6, each with THE stitched top selvedge. Postally used they are scarce. USED ON any cover, moreso. Especially from the middle of the Pacific, 10,000 miles back to the UK!
Postally used from Christmas Island, on matched covers, that trio be unique I have no doubt. 8) 8)
Never seen even one of these before in 45 years of dealing. Condition a tad mixed after 65 years but a unique group I will bet.
Are they worth $20 apiece? You bet!
Call it - "BFPO : STOCK 156GY" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlenOrder
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.
All payment details etc are on: https://www.tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE franking is used when I mail : see member pix of that here - https://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO

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: 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" to add to my 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 $A200 and under are always mailed Unregistered and untracked, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1000s of my transactions here for 9 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 $A16 ($US12) extra foreign depending on weight. 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"!
