In sorting modern stamps I look for something that looks pretty decent... as below which isn't even VFU but good enough to be worth keeping. I'm lucky to get half a dozen reasonable (to me anyway ) stamps like that in any bag/bundle/box. Luckily, I don't buy any now as I get "donations" of stamps from friends etc



My experience of sorting modern kiloware has not produced much in that quality or quantity. Most look like this...
Junk!

The ones I showed are nearly all very recent, so you can see good cancellations are still in use

@scotzm I see, so 95% from the last 5 years is not a bad thing because they are so modern, rather they are more likely to be marked. So, I am guessing I could make it tempting if I remove most of the ones with harsh markings.

Out of the ones I have, the ones from USA do seem to be more heavily marked, with some kind of red ink almost covering the stamps, however most of the ones from UK and other places, are still canceled using a circular hand-held rubber stamp.

For now I am just going to add to it, but not process it any way, until I know more what I am doing.

Pre-sorted to Fine used or better would be a great selling point in my view.

CollGStamps...your postmarks are interesting and worth keeping. Your stamps can only exist in combination with the postmark. Some of the stamps, if cut from the cover as is the case of kiloware material, would be much less interesting or collectible in my view! Kiloware is the subject.

I am glad your got my point: the stamps themselves can be very ordinary (that is what most of the contemporary are) yet the cancels make them more appealing.
As to the British ones that you mention lacking round cancels. They exist, but are harder to come by, here are a few more:

In the first post I read about a kilowarelot that is described very well.
I thought.. the lot sounds good!
In a next post I read that the maker is the poster himself.
He wants advise.
Ok. I am 50 years of age and trade in kilowaar since I was 10 years of age
Since 1993 I am specialised in kiloware.

Now my advise:

Once there was a man he built cars.It was a very clever man.
He decided to make cars... in different colors!
He became very rich and succesful!

The definition for succes is in all trade:
To satisfy consumers wants.

What you want to do is make cars in only the black color...
Make different types of kiloware!

And ask around.. thats what you do already.

I make kilowarelots and do it everytime different

To satisfy as many types of collectors as possible.
Depending on the supply.

Making a good kilowarelot takes time.
Be shure you put some adventure in it.
Thats my advise!

I recently acquired about 40lbs. of kiloware 3/4 off paper and 1/4 on that was a build up from 7 private collections I purchased at an auction that I need to sell because I have way too many stamps now more then I could ever attempt to organize in any way. It contains stamps from 95% of all countries that ever issued stamps from 1800's to about 2000 and when I have skimmed through a bag here and there I have found many stamps with values exceeding $100 and a few over $1000 so I am sure there is tons of value in it but as I said I have already over 500,000 stamps in my collection now and am having issues trying to keep those somewhat organized as it is. So if anyone has interest message me and we can work out a deal.

You need to have fifty or more posts before you can buy and sell via SCF.

That is why it is called "kiloware". It has $1000 stamps.

This is a comment from me Posted 01/31/2013

Now kiloware is like $1,000 per kg at Status Stamp Auctions and to make it more attractive I it is sorted so all the definitives & concession are taken out. How things change in 5 years. Now I am 1 of the very few people selling the lastest Australia kiloware on paper.

I would have a heart attack if I had to pay over $12.50 per 1kg or2.2lbs of close cut kiloware direct from a charity and that would be recent letter rate stamps.

As soon as you start buying 95% commemorates kiloware someone sorted them and surprise, surprise the harder to get stamps are always damaged.
