Hello All,
I've listed an auction on eBay of all new material under my userid name wbattles. There's about 1,652 items all starting at 99 cents. It's a mix of United States and Worldwide postal history, postal stationery, first day covers and other philatelic covers. There's even some postcards too! I've also listed covers with meters, PNCs, precancels, registered, airmail, censor, postage due and other types of labels and markings. There's many topicals as well to find. I write very extensive descriptions so please search within the description or simply browse. I've included all the dates, types of cancels, place names and other types of information I could write about.
The auction starts today and ends next Saturday, September 6th from 12 noon EST to just after 2pm EST. As always I will combine items for one shipment at exact post office rate, but please wait till after the auction for an invoice or send me a message to request one. As always I will use current U.S. postage stamps for shipping.
I actually hoped to have a larger auction. There's 600+ more covers near completion, but will be listed in the next auction plus others.
Please follow the link below or click on the eBay auction button above.

Thanks!
Will Battles

p.s. I just finished listing the items and it might take eBay a bit of time to display everything. Last covers listed are from Yugoslavia.

Will you have some nice items - it looks like some are hidden though - I only get to see 731 of your covers

I've heard that sometimes items are rotated, but more than 50% is a bit much to leave out ...

Good to know everything is showing up now. It can take eBay's servers a bit to catch up and list everything.

Will, here's another screen grab I just took - it's been over 24 hours since you've listed and I still only get 731 listings. I must be on a really slow server ...

That is strange - I just now looked at the listings in a few different ways. I search by seller directly on eBay, I clicked on "View other items" within a listing, I clicked on the link in the original post and clicked on eBay button in the bar above each of my posts. I get 1652 with each method except a few less with the eBay button on here since it doesn't include the postcard listings under collectables, but that's only a few dozen listings or so. KirkS said he sees them all. Can anyone else confirm that they are seeing all or part of the listings?

Will - I figured it out. It's something in your shipping info. When I set the jump box at the right of your listings to ship to USA, I get 1,652 results. If I set it to any other country, I only get 731 results. At least I'm now able to see everything :)

Well, glad that's sorted out and it was just a setting thing. I was afraid eBay was experimenting or something. I'm not sure why there's a difference due to shipping settings as they are all set the same through TurboLister. Who knows? It's eBay. As long as everything is working well now I'm happy.

p.s. for everyone - I ship anything and everything to anywhere directly by USPS.

Hello all again!
Just a reminder that the auction ends tomorrow! Lots of bidding activity and I thank all who have browsed and/or bidded. There's still plenty of bargains to be had. Also, for those with multiple successful bids, in order for combined shipping to be correct please send an invoice request through eBay when your bids are completed. Or you can wait till after the auction is over and I'll start sending out invoices around 2:30pm EST.

Thanks again!
Will
