SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED ON
Dear Friends & Collectors,
A few weeks after my August "monthly" mailing
(September 14th, to be exact) I checked into North Shore Hospital (Manhasset)for a "less-than-major, but
more-than-minor" medical procedure. For once, it went off "as advertised", and
the next day I checked out, 2 bladder stones lighter and a whole lot happier.
Unfortunately, I also checked out with a warning not to do too much driving or
lifting... and for once, I decided to heed that warning. This pretty much
killed my trip later that week to a certain auction I attend 6 times a year, and
which has been a good source for Postal Stationery for me for about 25 years.
Said trip would have entailed driving about 300 miles in one day and throwing
around many 20-30 lb boxes of Stationery, Covers, etc...
Thus, my offerings here are very poor this time. However, not having new
material to work with, I put that time into working on my
me tell you about it...
When last I posted
(August, 2015) I had about 3400 items up & running). I now have over 4300
products in the store. The main change has been in the area of UPSS
Back in August I was just beginning the listings, with only a
test offering of about 60
of the SMALL size (UPSS #10-#13) listings of U522-U535. Today (December 16) I
have over 1000 Envelopes listed by UPSS # from U522 thru U648.
There's still a lot more to go, including about 1500 more Envelopes by UPSS #,
as well as Postal Cards (Mint Face/Unused/Used), Reply Cards, Wrappers, U.N. Stationery, a
smattering of U.S. Possessions, and enough Worldwide Stamps & Poster Stamps to
choke a horse.
It's going more slowly than I had hoped,
mostly because the UPSS listings are complex, and require more information to be
listed than regular envelopes.
I DID pick up some new material last month,
but it wasn't suitable for one of these "monthly" mailings.
These were mostly "1-of-a-kind"
items: errors & freaks, used Modern Official envelopes, and Postal
History/Used Postal Cards. My next ebay Auction, which I hope to
have ready in a week or so, will be interesting, with things I guarantee you've
never seen before!
Meanwhile, I do have one item this month of more than passing
SOUTHERN FLORIDA WETLAND CARDS
The Southern Florida Wetland Cards
were issued in October, 2006. They were the first cards to be
issued in this 10 card (5 sheets of 2 cards each) pack format, and for some
reason, the USPS underestimated their popularity, producing only
No surprise, they sold out
within 3 weeks (see UPSS PC Catalog notes) and the price shot up.
2016 Scott catalog value is $45.00.
once had a half dozen sets in stock, but that seems like a lifetime ago,
and these have eluded me ever since...until 2 weeks ago, when I bought a
bunch from a dealer who was a little faster than I was when they first
came out. They didn't last very long.
The sets I have are all
shrink-wrapped, in excellent condition.
PRICE FOR A SET OF 10 CARDS; $30.00.
I told you the offerings this month
would be poor, and I wasn't kidding! But right now,
something is being discussed which should make a profound
difference in my listings and monthly mailings. I can't
talk (too much) about it now, but one of my competitors is
getting ready to pull the plug after a long career in the Stamp
business, and we're talking about his inventory.
Keep your fingers crossed; my next "monthly" mailing may occur
much faster than a month from now.
Best Regards and wishes for the Holiday Season & for the New Year.
