Aust 2000s ‘Liquid Gold’ PO Pack Coll Ret $1600 - $800!
The “LIQUID GOLD” era 2006 to 2013. As usual, TOTALLY unpicked by me - what you see is 100% what was in the box! Deceased Owner was in Perth WA, so condition is clean and flat and fresh, as humidity is not known there - NOT often the case from coastal EASTERN Australia - trust me. Lovely hoard "Liquid Gold" 2011-2015 Australasian First Day Covers!
PO packs from the Australia regions, fall into several distinct bands -
1 - Official Post Office packs 1969 to mid-1970s are elusive, when in clean unopened condition
2 - Latter 1970s to late 1980s are incredibly abundant, as we had a massive "Stamp Boom" then, where investors jumped onto the scene, often buying 5 or 10 of each pack.
3 - 99% of these buyers ceased in 1990, as the PO issued a $20 Definitive Painting stamp. Back over 30 years back $20 was SERIOUS money - $50 in today's spending power, and vast numbers of folks simply said "Forget it" and stopped buying Packs and FDC. OVERNIGHT!
HENCE the Packs from 1990 onwards are 20 times harder to get than the 1980s era. FACT. Catalogue values for the 1990s Packs are high, as you can see in catalogues.
4 - ANYTHING after 2000 in Australian Packs is near impossible to source. Masses of collectors and dealers drew a line in the sand at this time, at that BIG round year figure, and said "that's it".
5 - And anything after 2005 is basically IMPOSSIBLE to source. After 2010 - forget it! Dealers did not buy them, and most collectors did not either. So when they appear on ebay etc they get double face readily.
Of course years on, they all regret it, and nearly all want and need those issues. Dealers did not stock them either, so sourcing them is near impossible - at any price. All the goodies are here as you can readily see from the photos - totally untouched and unpicked by me as always, for all the superb topicals and thematics etc.
135 different packs. COST ex PO of these from PO was $A801.10. Retail would be EASILY $1,600 if you could find a dealer with stock - and I honestly doubt you can, for this long run. All the issue formats are here - Mini Sheets, se-tenant blocks, se-tenant pairs and strips, and even the super popular "International" Stamps etc. ALL the topical/thematic goodies are in here for Australia. TOTALLY unpicked by me.
Pop them on ebay one by one, and double or treble your money, on a free listing day perhaps? No-one has this era listed up - CHECK it! These Cost about $801 to buy ex the PO. WAY UNDER PO COST as you can see! Estate Super Deal. 135 x superb modern packs for JUST FIVE bucks apiece! $A700 (Stock 759QD)
$A800 cash plus Global Post
Call it - "Modern Packs : Stock 759QD" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlensOrder 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.
All payment details etc are on: http://tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE VFU franking is used whenever possible, when I mail (depending on how busy PO counter is!) and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - http://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - http://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet.
Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website http://glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals.
And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to ozstamps at g mail dot com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: http://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use any cards - and Amex is accepted too.
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - http://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and http://tinyurl.com/StampDeals Unless noted by me, all stampboards lots priced *$A100 and under* are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at *YOUR* total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. 1,000s of my transactions here for 15 years have been delivered safely by normal post.
Orders over $100 are ALWAYS sent Registered (but Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Request this on order form if you require it, under $A100. Letter size FOREIGN sendings gobally are usually only $4 untracked. Smallish large packet items FOREIGN up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in pre-paid Registered envelopes cost $17 total, dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees!
Only *YOU* know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a 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 or large letters on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes, or mailed to your work address etc, are FAR safer, if you are not home during day. If un-registered mail goes missing - sorry, your issue entirely.
"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $A100 covered locally, or $3 per $A100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it automatically, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - http://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 out 3 weeks back, and ‘you now need to cancel your ticket, with no nasty penalty please’, and see how you get on 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"!
