Australia Discount Postage
Sep 23rd, 2017, 8:25pm
 
I have 4 lots of A$60.55 EACH, pristine white never-hinged fully-gummed decimal postage.  Price is USD 25.00 per lot, postpaid.  

If anyone is interested, I will post more details and offer them (with images) for sale; your parcel will be mailed with one $2 Jenny "invert" stamp and other commems.

That works out to roughly 52% of face value, delivered.  Let me know.

They are currently on eBay at the same price, except the listing is for the entire lot @ $100, shipped only to US residents, even suitable for sales inventory, they are that nice and clean. Wink

Each USD $25 lot (postpaid) will contain A$60.55, 25% of each item, give or take 1 stamp to make it come out even.

For BasSWarwick, have none of those countries, sorry.

For Sherro, regret I cannot do that, as they are sealed up ready to go.  Plus the other lots, being proportionally heavier, would then require "parcel" rates, MUCH higher that I'd have to charge extra for, right now I'm at the limit for letter rates.

A new rule, unfortunately -- all 4 groups must go as presently packed, A$60.55 face value for USD $25 postpaid.

Buying at 52% continues to be a very good deal, as far as I know.

The unfortunate part is that domestic postage is $1, and overseas is $3 from 1 October.. I want to offer free postage on my Ebay sales at some point, but using multiple low-face stamps isn't attractive to most buyers (most of whom want latest-release issues anyway).

I was hoping to get the SG614 for the numerous minor varieties that can be found Smiley

Now that I know the situation, I think I will pull the discount postage offer altogether.  When I relist the lot on eBay, I may omit the Gibbons number you want, and see where (and if I can) break even.  

U.S. stamps regardless of age (at 52%) would sell in 2 minutes in the U.S., so there's a significant learning curve here.

I get some real work-of-art covers from the US, with barely space for the address Smiley

If you had 1990's-2000's material at 52%, I'd rip your arm off!
