I have about 40 of these items from an auction of US material I bought. They are 1891 Victoria reprints sold by Stolow in 1954 as part of the King Farouk collection. I deal in Us so have no idea of value on these items. Are they worth listing on eBay ?
Thanks
Mike

You can search on eBay (filter search for only 'sold' items') and get a feel for recent prices.

UPU 1891 Reprints _There can be some with the inverted watermark; apparently worth checking..

You can mention it when selling, but "ex-Farouk" doesn't usually carry a lot of weight since anything and everything seemed to have been in the collection/hoard. A lot of people also dislike the markings applied to the backs (two types?) even though "ex-Farouk" is proven by them.

Thanks for all the info on these items. I'll put them on eBay and see what happens.
