Haiti 1975 Audubon Bird sets of *60* Diff MUH corner Blocks 4 = 240 MUH - $A75!

Provenance - Bill Hornadge, from whom I bought these from before his death. You get SIXTY DIFFERENT stamps, each in a fresh MUH corner block 4. i.e. 240 stamps for just $A75. :lol:

All clean and fresh MUH .. a few minor condition issues (now 50 years old!) - mainly on outer selvedges where some were lightly stuck in storage.

These are seldom seen in MINT. Near all were CTO'd for cheap inclusion in the packet/approval trade. These are all fresh *MUH*. Big bonus. There are 15 different designs, and 4 different face values to each design - so 60 different stamps.

PART sets of SINGLES sell for $A80 posted as you can see -

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/234439772291

Even SINGLE *MUH* stamps go for $A9 posted - and you have 240 of them here - :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/265142779774

So a brilliant hoard for an ebay re-seller etc. :lol:


Jean-Jacques Audubon was born April 26, 1785 Les Cayes, Saint-Domingue (later Haiti).


The History of the Haitian Audubon Stamps

The History


These beautiful, colourful 1975 stamps depicted reproductions of paintings from world famous Haitian-born ornithologist Jean-Jacques Audubon.

The stamps attracted worldwide philatelic attention in their year of issue, 1975. Not only were they so large and visually appealing, but since bird stamp collections were increasingly popular, they became a must-have for most collectors. How did it all start?

Nicole Duvalier, the former President’s sister, is considered to have been the mastermind behind the project. She secured the design and printing of the stamps through her connections that went through the Postal Authorities, and even down to airport security.

The stamps were printed and sent to Miami, from where they were sold to eager philatelists globally.

The stamps themselves would have been issued normally if it were not for a cleverly designed scheme of authorising them. State authentication was needed, and the Haitian State Press director was bribed to print an issue of the official notice which announced the issue of the Haitian Audubon stamps, with the authority being provided by a forged signature of a Commerce Ministry official.

Demand was growing, and a stock of Haitian Audubon stamps was available for sale. Not only was the series large, at 60 individual stamps, one of the largest issues of birds on stamps, but also it came in an anniversary year – 190 years since the birth of Jean-Jacques Audubon.

The stamps are nowadays a highly sought philatelic set, with relevant face values printed on each stamp, and they would well fit in the category of philatelic ''Prepared but not officially issued' stamps.

For the collector who believes that conventions of mainstream philately are but a fad, they are of great value, especially if the series is complete. You can secure the complete set of 60 values at approximately 100 Euro.

Call it - "AUDUBON : Stock 637AU" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - www.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. :twisted:

All payment details etc are on: www.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 - www.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 - 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 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 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: www.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 or PayPal in ANY currency. .

Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - www.tinyurl.com/GlenRare and www.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. :idea:

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 globally 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, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees!

"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 - www.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! :lol: :lol:

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 send cheque 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"! Phone me anytime with any queries on these stamps - 0409 399 888
