SA, QLD, NZ Chalon stamps etc, Perkins Bacon *STAR WATERMARK* paper in blocks!!!
Australia States + NZ and other collectors - a genuine block of Perkins Bacon Limited London, Star Watermark blank paper!
In an amazing find, I recently bought from the UK, a full press sheet pull of the Perkins Bacon “Star” watermark, on thin hand-made deckle edged paper.
Perkins Bacon used this exact Star Watermark to print the early imperforate stamps of many Crown Agent colonies - including Queensland, South Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania etc - 160 years back.
The sheet was quite fresh, as are most things that have been in the UK for 160 years. The proof pull on hand-made wobbly deckle edged ungummed paper, has storage wrinkling on some units, which does not show on scans for some reason, as it is light, and colourless.
The outer margins all have the 5 parallel decorative watermark lines as you can see, and the double lined word seriffed “POSTAGE” along each edge, as you can also see.
I carefully cut the sheet up into more convenient sized pieces for collectors to display on their album pages, or on a Hagner sheet etc, or to re-sell. The “Postage” block of 42 would make a wonderful centrepiece page to any collection.
For those exhibiting any of these areas, a piece of this paper would-be a very interesting and unusual and "Important" addition to the early pages of your Queen Victoria collection.
Or, you can cut them into imperf pairs or blocks 4, and offer them on ebay etc, and you may get some VERRRY interesting results. Prices are very affordable as you can see, for something so totally unusual.
Never in 45 years of dealing have I had these before.

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 franking here - https://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO - and COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money buying more than 1 lot at once!

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"!
