Thanks 22 Crows,
had a dekko, and my eyes glazed over.
goodness gracious.

Spock: an unnecessary hypothetical, freezer bags are ubiquitous.
just pop into your local supermarket.
I recall you are single, it is a great conversation opener
when you spot a lovely lady. "excuse me, where may I find the freezer bags?" put on your best smile.

Faint heart never won fair lady, spock old man. Be brave.

And save the newspaper for wrapping fish. You'll have a stuck-together mess on your hands otherwise. (Though I suppose if you judiciously place the stamps on the newspapers over odd words or pictures, you can eBay them as "Interesting transfer on reverse" when the ink runs.)

Kiloware has some down sides that are well documented in the areas of, to much duplication , postage is to much, is it unpicked or not, to much work, to much time to take the stamps off paper and all these things are very real.
But there is so many good collecting angles into kiloware that I believe are to easily over looked. Taking on a 1kg buy of stamps and breaking it down renders many ways of collecting that are a total pleasure to look through as the collection grows, more so than just looking at the standard collection of one of everything.
Post mark collecting is something that gives depth to the collection and the varieties of them are great, let alone the history and reason for the postmark it is just totally amazing. A great deal of stamping history is lost because this area of collecting is totally over looked by many collectors.
In the kiloware mixes there are other treasures like world stamps and pre decimal stamps when it comes from Australian decimal kiloware. I am sure that other mixtures from around the world work out basically the same.
Then there is the group of collectors joining together with a kiloware buy being the common ground. I am sure this could be a great deal of fun for all!
The cost of kiloware is very cheap way of collecting stamps if you want to collect stamps in the broader sense and not to be limited to just collecting one of everything. I just simply believe kiloware is to easily over looked! So why not think about kiloware to broaden your stamp collection. It just could be a very pleasant surprise!

The stamps below are the most expensive standard stamp in Australian decimal. These 5 stamps make our first complete sets of Aust dec!



With a recent buy of bundleware that has matched the amount of stamps that we have already sorted, some order needed to be put in place to know what we really have and to know what we are short of. Much work has been done to catalogue a massive amount of stamps. We are up to 1990 and another week and should see this task completed.

The sorters have had 10 days off from sorting. There is only about 12kgs of stamps off paper to sort now.

The bench space I am using at the minuet is 21 feet long and 2 feet wide and it just fits. The lounge has 5 stacks of plastic tubs on it for the cataloging as well.

Making up the master set of the packets of many different stamps is a really great stamping experience and am about half way to 2000 stamps.

Time wise we are on track for our October kick off which is very nice. Instead of if, it is now a when. What a mammoth job by all! The home stretch! John and Family

spock! These international post 2001 $20 uluru stamps are very hard to source in very fine used condition and have had to turn to stamp dealers to get them. They are very rarely offered at auction. I payed $25 each for 10 of these stamps and they were rubbish and I sent them back. I found this dealer and he supplied me with these examples shown, as very fine used for less than $20 each and I believe that I will use him some more for these stamps. I reckon that this stamp would be more common outside Australia because it is an international post stamp something that would come in kiloware from other countries something to look out for when sorting.

Some of the 45c bundleware ready to catalogue.







The 45c era is very attractive to work with.

I see all those stamps and I want to help.

There is a seller or more than one on eBay who sells by using a title that says 45c era, 51c era, etc for Canada stamps. He seems to sell well enough as people seem to like that way of looking at stamps. The strange thing (to me) is that these are not complete sets. Just various stamp from that era on a page.

People must buy them and then have to fill the holes later.

The certain eras of stamps perhaps it is the thing about people liking to have something they can visualize as being completed. A good feeling.

Just another way to look at selling.

That's how I sort my bulk Puzzler,

1. Sort by price value
2. match to price database for appropriate years

The fastest route to sort 1000 aussie stamps in my experience.

I think this is a very innovative way to collect, esp
those with stamp databases (scott CDRom etc)

For example I want every 10c stamp australia produced

Just curious - is that a good thing or a bad thing that it also pulled up a couple of $1.10 stamps? (Is that intentional?) You seem to be missing the 10c coil Sturt's Desert Pea.

Yes, that's a bad thing.
I spoke to quality control (me) and he apologises.
( I have to find a way to limit the text string search, probably inverted commas)
Not finding Sturt's desert pea,
I thought maybe under "coils" but I don't have a
coil folder!
You have exposed my amateur database.

The size of the 45c era is amazing! It lasted from the beginning of 1992 to the end of 2002. Rod you have frightened me. I have never counted how many 45c stamps there are in this era. 765 stamps is a lot in any one's book. We do have them all but some are only in small numbers. For instance we only have 15 complete sets of the 2000 Faces of Australia 45c x 25 stamps. Mostly we 50 sets at least of some of the harder to get stuff which is a huge blessing and will fit nicely into the larger packets.

Puzzler thanks for the info it is important to us!
I made a decision early to make sure that all letter rate sets to be complete in what ever packet the stamps are assign to. Felt that it would make the packets reach a higher standard by doing this. I could not think of anything more frustrating than not getting these set complete. High denominations are spread out according to there cost. We are working to one large master set. So if a packet of 400 was purchased and a person decided they want a set to 600 only 200 extra stamps would be needed to be purchased and so on.

Your route is a little confusing to me, my 765 would be "give/take"
100? there will be mistakes, perf differences, minisheets, maybe
even a koala count or two.

I still do not have the faces 2000 myself, they are going to be
a valuable set one day methinks.

The international sets are expensive, make sure you know
the more difficult to get in the Aussie catalogue, and charge
accordingly.
