I have place 2 FDCs on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/171977361554 with Digital Color Postmarks on stamps from the sold out imperforate press sheet of the Civil War 2015 stamps. Also, Maya Angelou FDC with DCP with imperforate and perforated pairs.

I have received some flack on another forum about my pricing of this item. Here's my response:

The imperforate sheet originally cost me $65.00 and I felt lucky that I was able to pay that low price after seeing what the sheets were selling for a few weeks later. So that works out to $5.42 for each stamp, plus $1.23 for each cachet plus $ 0.50 for each cancel plus $ 0.12 to and from postage = $ 7.37 x2 = $ 14.74.

If I sell @ $50.00, the associated eBay and Paypal costs are $5.00 ( eBay) and $ 1.75 (PayPal) & postage to the buyer will be .49c (without tracking) = $7.24

Final cost = $ 14.74 + $ 7.24 = $ 21.99

Therefore profit = $50.00 - $ 21.99 = 28.01 for the two or $14.00 each.

Perhaps you didn't notice that there is a Make An Offer option included. If somebody wants to buy it @ $50.00 that's their privilege. However, if I see a MAKE AN OFFER button on a BUY IT NOW, I always make an offer first.

I have collected these imperforate stamps with digital color postmarks since the very first issue in 2012. They make a colorful display.

Has anyone found out who purchased the imperf Civil War 2015 press sheets that resulted in such a quick sell out?
