About a year ago, I did pick up an almost complete set of Czechoslovakia ---- used ---- on eBay
for $15. Didn't have any souvenir sheets, though. It's still mounted on the pages that the previous owner used, which was basically graph paper with Scott numbers handwritten underneath. At some point, I would like to remount them onto something better, but don't want to cause damage playing around with the hinges. Plus, I don't have time to resoak them all to remove the hinges. I just grabbed them because of the price, even though they were used. Hoarder, I guess.
I admit that I have been buying MNH sets on eBay
directly from 2 different dealers based in the Czech Republic.....but, thanks for the info about being able to buy cheaper elsewhere. I thought their prices were quite cheap especially when compared to Scott values, but I'll have to start looking around to see what else is out there. It's not my primary collection, so I don't put too much time into it. Just grab something here and there every so often. The only reason I do collect those MNH is because my ancestry is from Czechoslovakia (present day Slovakia), and as was mentioned, their stamps are quite attractive.
So, yes, I've also started dabbling with some MNH Slovakia stamps (1993-present), but also thought about starting a collection of Czech Republic (1993-present) ----- just because ----- but like my other foreigns, only collect those in "used". But, I have been unable to find those cheap anywhere. Surprisingly, those 2 dealers in the Czech Republic that I dealt with do not handle used stamps. I thought if I could find a kiloware, that would get me going. But, finding them cheap is the key.
