Aust strong Decimal used coll 1966-1990 with many *USED* BLOCKS. $A150

laaring 4/24 - Aust strong Decimal used coll 1966-1990 with many *USED* BLOCKS just $A200

VALUABLE lot, worth very careful checking. A GREAT used Decimal era collection, with se-tenant strips of 5 inc the scarce 1985 Australia Day, Juzwin retail $90 alone! And many se-tenant blocks, and the good mini sheets etc. Face values to $10, and the basic stamps in here retail well over $400.

On 17 Hagners (retail $1.75 each = $A30) and an attractive Brick Red coloured German stockbook retail $50 new.

Then many postally used BLOCKS in here too as a bonus... the hottest area of collecting these days. I was initially going to just remove those and sell separately, but way too busy right now, so someone gets them tossed in near free! For an ebayer, a GOLDMINE lot, as these sell well.

Many readers know my views on postally used Australia blocks of 4, and how they will all potentially greatly increase in value in quite short order - - Most are scarce, and many are truly RARE. You could spend all day, and phone EVERY dealer in the book, and ask if they have for instance, a 1923 6d Roo postally used block in stock, at ANY price, even $150, and the answer will be “NO”. Ask them if they have a single used 5/- Harbour Bridge, and they ALL have one of those at $275 or so! Join up the dots. One is TRULY ‘scarce’, and the other is not! :mrgreen:

When the ACSC finally prices them in used BLOCKS, as they are in the Europe catalogues, the prices will go insane, as very few exist of these. Many major European basic catalogues as a matter of course, list stamps mint, used, FDC, on cover and in USED blocks of 4.

Look at a Swiss/Liechtenstein Zumstein catalogue, or the leading Italian or Scandinavian catalogues etc, and you will rapidly see what I mean. Even the Stanley Gibbons Specialised catalogues for GB, list and price near all pre-war issues from 1840, in used blocks of 4. So it can be done here, and it SHOULD be done here. Stamps worth peanuts as singles, are often worth a FORTUNE in a postally used block, in many European markets.

Swiss stamps issued in the Kangaroo era can catalogue 500 times as much in a used block, as for a used single. The 1914 3Fr Jungfrau is in the basic Zumstein catalogue I have, listed at 3,250 SFr a used block, but only 8 SFr for a used single. Many Kangaroos should rate similar high multiples like that in blocks. But right now they sell in blocks for 5 or 10 times a single stamp!

The same rarity level applies in some Australian stamps of course. But NOT the prices - YET. The market leading Facit catalogue does the same for Sweden and Scandinavia area stamps, and has done for 100+ years.

In a recent Facit catalogue, the common old cheapie Sweden 1858 12 öre blue Arms (Facit #9) is priced at “x 500” for a block of four. That stamp is 18 SEK for the cheapest shade for a used single, but 9,000 SEK for a used block of four of the cheapest shade. :mrgreen:

$A200 plus Global Post

Call it - "Used Dec Hoard : Stock 734QL " - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - 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. :twisted:


All payment details etc are on: - NICE VFU franking is always used, and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - 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 - - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money - lowest for years! 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 Admin or ozstamps) here (or on my RARITY website ) 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] outlook 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:

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 - or PayPal in ANY currency. Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - and

Orders over $75 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 globally are usually only about $4 untracked. Smallish, large packet items *FOREIGN* up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in stout card pre-paid *EXPRESS* or Registered Envelopes, cost $A20 generally, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! 😊

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap and prudent 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 - - Phone me anytime with any queries on these stamps: 0409 - 399 - 888
