That’s a nice touch to these stamps having the remains of the blotting paper, and I haven’t seen a sheet of that in years, and doubt if anyone makes it anymore.

All the best

I suspect that if the seller had provided a description of what the lot included, or a picture that wasn't blurred, I'd have had to pay more than £2.20 for this recent ebay purchase:

You certainly won a bargain there!

Are they MNH?

The catalogue value of that lot must be quite high :D

Yes, they are MNH. Besides the high values, the 1972 paintings set of 5 accounts for a significant proportion of the CV. That is a desirable set.

Hello all.

I believe this qualifies as a bargain.

Solomon Islands 1991 65c withdrawn Health issue block of 4. Unmounted Mint.

I was the only bidder and grabbed it for £9,95.

A shortish perf at right, but US$12 for a decent example of "Roller flaw below E of POSTAGE" (CV A$325) is OK.

MODERATOR COMMENT.

Again, a reminder that not all of us know everything about everything. Posts along the lines of "I picked these up for £5, which was a bargain" are all jolly nice, but unless you tell us what the item is actually worth, and why it's scarce, largely meaningless to most of us.

For example, the Solomon Islands block just above - is it worth £20 or £20,000? Adding such information can only add to Stampboards' value as an educational resource.
Thanks

The Pom,
Solomon Islands block.. Is it worth £20 or £20,000? Adding such information can only add to Stampboards' value as an educational resource.
I must apologize for leaving this information out... I have posted this information below:

Solomon Islands 1991 65c withdrawn Health issue block of 4. Unmounted Mint.
Screenshot_20240304-220218_eBay~2.jpg
This stamp was prepared but not officially released. You can read the full story on the link below:

www.tinyurl.com/Glen4-19

This 1991 65c withdrawn issue is priced at US$350 as a single MUH in Scott but has fetched over US$600 at certain auctions.

Currently there is a similar block of 4 online selling for £750,00.
https://www.zeboose.com/products/solomon-islands-1991-mnh-65 ... b199106002

I was the only bidder and grabbed this block of 4 for £9,95. Which I believe qualifies as a bargain.

Not a perfect set, but second watermark complete is catalogued at £725, so at £9.99 plus post, I can bear a few minor condition issues.

South Australia Type 1 one shilling lake brown, possibly SG 028. Purchased from a Connecticut auction house. AUD100 including rather expensive packaging and post. Catalogue lists no stop after S, but not after O. By way of an aside, the recipient is still in business, some 150 years later.

Maybe the catalogue doesn’t list “missing stop after O” because it doesn’t exist? I can see half a stop there. Maybe it’s just broken.

From your scan I think what you have here is a broken stop, a constant variety, here are two examples from my collection on the same value, the left-hand stamp with a 'kiss' double print and the right hand stamp with a superb re-entry.

Morning All,

I’ve had this one a while, prob cost me 20pence, I’ve the one shilling blue but I know there’s four in the set.

Maybe one day I’ll get round to looking for them, in the meantime I’m saving for an Sg121.

I bet everyone knows the story around this issue, but a potted history for a refresh. These stamps were mining town stamps where no formal postal system existed… a camel wasn’t used but post was taken by cycle to other mining towns etc.

The camels a red herring !!

Soon the authorities clamped down and these stamps not allowed, sadly I’d say, as they represent a bit of ingenuity at the time, a bit of history and a beautiful stamp design.

Comments welcomed…

All the best

Hi Andrea,

That’s a good question.

I’ve never seen one, mind you I’ve only ever looked for others like my one, unused etc, there must be some though. Prop worth a few quid I’d imagine.

Maybe Glen would know, that would be my best thought.

All the best

They are a set of 3, not 4. And yes some mail was carried on the CAMELS.

They spivs on FakeBay have cranked out good replicas for years. If yours does not have the brown SANDY gum like this it is a fake -

Image

Australia has more camels than any anywhere else in the world - far more. We EXPORT them to the Middle East. Over a MILLION of the darn things here.

This is a GENUINE set 3 that I sold for $750

Image

It is not a Cinderella really but a genuine Local Post and covers are known of all designs.

Without doubt the most attractive and superbly produced Cinderella issue in Australian history. In 1895 when this was printed, it even pre-dated the ground breaking bi-colour charity stamps from NSW. Mint very lightly hinged with original gum. Near all on the market are no gum as the original "sandy' gum granulates into sandy particles more or less in our hot climate.

This has been in the UK most of its life, hence still having original gum. And centering on most is APPALLING! In 1895 James Healy used camels on some of his more distant private local post mail runs, previously covered by cyclists. (I have matched original corner pairs of the 1894 1/- and 2/6d Healy Cycle Post stamps for sale,

The "Australian Philatelist" records 1,000 of these 5/- Camels were printed. (The same number as the Lake Lefroy Cycle mail - retail of those is about $2,500-$5,000 each.

This unique tête-bêche pair of those that I once owned sold for $A21,275 at a major auction - www.glenstephens.com/snmarch05.html

Hi Glen,

Many thanks for all the info in your reply, esp that Australia is the camel exporter of the world… which part of Australia they habitat?

Interesting point you give on the stamps printing and the price you got for the set was reasonable I’d say.

Here’s the reverse of my one.
Refers 5/- stamp
Refers 5/- stamp
The stamps from my album 1898 album, hopefully not a repro but anything’s possible as I’ve learned.

Here’s the other Coolgardie I mentioned with the cycle, and I always thought it was a set of the 5/- plus this 1/- and one or maybe another small blue stamp, your images the first time I’ve ever seen what the set actually is.
1/- coolgardie
1/- coolgardie
Are there any used examples on envelopes you know of, just be good to see one.

Those Swans are something and the price as well, but magnificent in all respects.

Thank you for a very helpful reply, which I’ve printed out.

All the best

1858 1d SG8 Oxidized (Before & after).png
I got this on eBay for $42 USD. It is a NZ 1d Richardson print on white paper (1858 - 1862) - SG8. The LH image is how it appeared when it was sold, the RH image after I removed the oxidization.

The stamp had a heavy hinge, which I thought may cover a significant thin, but the back (now hinge-less) is perfect. As a used single it is exceptionally fine; I've not seen better. The PB15 cancel (Nelson) is light and complete, while not obscuring the face. It has a CV of $2000 NZD used. I think that this is a bargain.

Thanks for the information, I see that in case of postal history, i.e. stamps applied on letters, the only way to execute the procedure is to detach the stamps from it's support. Then it's also to consider if any old stamp can stand such a treatment, depending of its kind of paper and printing

Hi Glen,

Thanks for your reply, I got round to reading the link later yesterday, very interesting i must say, I liked the Coolgardi cards, and the historical review, and was v. Surprised that a few people go there even now looking for gold - one way to spend your holidays I suppose.

All was a big help to me everything you signposted/wrote, but what a shame to read about the fire at that collectors house, he sounded a good bloke as well.

Thanks as always.

This lot was described as "old Australia stamps x 8". I got it for £1.40 + post, no other bidders. Condition isn't perfect, but at the price, I'll put up with that.

Basic CV is £145, plus the 4½d has the variety 1R33 "Break in top frame over left wattles", CV A$140.

I'm pretty sure this was a bargain, a first return flight cover from 1929 Charleville to Brisbane signed by the pilot, P.H Moody. This one is also interesting because of the postage due and the fact that it was forwarded to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I don't have the reference book that describes these but I'm pretty sure it's worth more than the US$12.03 I paid for it.

Can someone check perhaps other catalogs to confirm this rather high value?

I will keep this one as it is.

Highly catalogued yes, scarce in mint condition, however all values seem to crop up regularly in used condition.

Perhaps the catalogue values are a bit high for used.

I have sold these on eBay auction for 10-15% of cat from memory, still a useful find though.

Nice find.

Will you keep the stamps on paper, or will you soak them?

When you soak them, will you split the two stamps, and only keep one example that obviously looks nicer than the two together?

Thanks,

I will keep on paper so I have a rather full cancel. It is a pity the right one has a corner missing. I might trim the paper a bit so it would be a 'straight' line.

A lady on a local ebay style website herited a collection and is selecting them into one page and selling between 1 and 2 euro. Sometimes cto from Hungary, or a theme selection or like in this case some very nice former French colonies. Especially the overprinted Benin stamps are a bargain. In Michel catalog between 20-50 euro and judging Colnect often very scarce, being the only collector to have them. I even added 3 missing items in Colnect.
