After looking for my FameFace album for an hour the day before yesterday, I found it in minutes this morning. Job for this afternoon is to label the spine....

In September last year, Ann Garrick sent me a list of FameFace stamps that she had seen (but did not necessarily have in her collection). I'll leave her numbering and tweak some descriptions (and perhaps we can update, upload images, and append).

There were only 100 or 200 sheets done, and they always have been pretty keenly sought.

Just for a newb. in this field to understand – what was Bill Hornadge's aim in creating such cinderellas? Was it just something for fun, or to raise money for certain charities here or there, or to make money or what?

Ben, Hornadge was the ULTIMATE Larrikin and stirrer - see his GST label below on a cover to me1

Max Stern/Bill Hornadge “P” Stamps postally used in period. :mrgreen:

Covers to me, from THE two most legendary stamp dealers this country has known. And MUH stamps, invite and the RIP 'Stamp News' Magazine etc all as shown above.

Bill Hornadge founded the massive Seven Seas Stamps and Stamp News in Dubbo 65 years back.

I did a lot of business with Bill, and this cover to me from 25 years back is using one of his typical cartoon Cinderellas on back, and was just so typical of his cheeky wit!

The other is from Max Stern AM inviting me to the Crown Casino for the launch of his new book in 2003, outlining his history in the stamp business etc, and (just) escaping the Nazis in WW2 “MY STAMP ON LIFE”.

No airline tickets were enclosed sadly, but Max did kindly pack in a copy of the book – a superb read for those who have not seen it. He also added in 3 of the MUH special ''P'' stamps.

All this I sold to a client years back for $60, and he passed away, and I was sold the Estate. So added them back in stock today (Stock 684JZ) at just $A50, and they sold fast to the next person interested in these cool pieces to take custody! :lol:

Also included is the 2013 “Stamp News” magazine paying Tribute to Bill. My 2 page Memoriam in there was annoyingly not attributed to me, and Rod Perry also has several pages devoted to Bill’s legacy.

Bill and Max both had wonderfully long innings – mid 90s for both, and present day dealers like me, and Gary Watson, Richard Juzwin and Stewart Wright etc, I am sure hope the stamp longevity Gene gets passed along the chain. :mrgreen:

This ad was from near 50 years ago. A FAR more conservative era.

mrboggler wrote:
What about the FREE SEX add in a Stamp Magazine, now that WAS tacky

Thank you. Not many tiny ads are remembered from many decades back. :lol:

Do not forget the most super powerful word in publishing - "FREE"

Image

When I started out near 50 years or so back this above was my trick.

When I first booked this ad above in the 'ASM' and 'Stamp News' - much smaller than this size (literally half this size in fact) in the magazines, as I was then as now, a very impoverished stamp dealer. :D

The owner of "Stamp News" Bill Hornadge phoned me to say he loved the ad. :lol:

Bill himself was a bit of a rebel and stirrer, and an entrepreneur, and had started the massive Seven Seas Stamps and founded "Stamp News".

Then as now, I worked from home with no staff, with no rent overhead, so I could and still do manage to sell good items, at very low prices. EXPOSING my stock to buyers was (and still is!) the ongoing challenge of course.

I had come from a background in the Advertising and Marketing and Journalist businesses, so such an angle to get noticed, at small cost, was nothing new to me. A tiny and cheap ad getting a lot of attention and comment was my aim. 8)

I had learnt working in there the TWO words in the English language that ALWAYS get people's attention were FREE and SEX, so I figured using both together as "FREE SEX" would do the job. :lol: :lol:

Bill said something like: "Glen, I wish a few other stamp dealers had the same kind of get up and go and initiative, to help brighten up these magazine pages a bit."

'Stamp News' was then 300 pages a month an issue, (4 or 5 times thicker than today) all entirely in dreary monocolour, on really coarse yellowish newsprint paper, and almost no ads had ANY photos. As BORING as batsh!t ....... :shock:

Two months later Bill phoned me a bit disheartened, and said he needed to prohibit me from running these ads again, as -

1. A number of large established dealers hated that a tiny cheap little ad, offering to undercut the prices in their many full page ads, was being run. ("The only way to get stamps cheaper than this, is to steal them".)

2. He'd had quite a few Church ministers, little old ladies, and other wowser conservatives get in his ear threatening to cancel their subscriptions, if ads screaming "Free Sex" were allowed in "nice clean family magazines like 'Stamp News".

My highbrow ads went downhill from then on. :D

Luckily I somehow managed to make a few bucks from selling stamps, and then for the next 20 years took 2 facing full pages a month of super classy ads like this below, always on pages 12 and 13, and spent more a month in both magazines than most other dealers - so no-one else's complaints were listened to then. :lol: :lol:

I typed each page up on huge pieces of glossy paper, on an Olivetti typewriter (remember them!?) and reduced the size of them down at the printer by 60% to squeeze more items in.

And as you can see, I crammed as much as was humanly possible into 2 pages each month, so did not allow myself the luxury of photos, as back then it was near impossible to do that anyway. Scanners cost $10,000 each then, and digital cameras simply did not exist. We all forget that.

I wish I could buy lot #34 below today for $A125! Catalogue today is £4,750=$A9,500 as a SPECIMEN.

Took me a weekend to do it all, as all the typing needed to fill out each line EXACTLY! That is harder to do than it looks. No on-line editing as we have now .. all typed onto gloss paper then. Tap, tap, tap ..... 8)
