Thank you for your interest rodgcam. What advice would you offer in this situation? Did you look at all the images provided in the eBay auction?

If I am buying stamps I like to see stamps. If they are album pages or stock pages of stamps I still want to see stamps. Not every one individually but at least a page view that shows that there are not corners missing etc. or whether or not they are all badly centered. A good view would benefit you as the seller. No?

If you have a stock-book that uses foil, rather than glassine or linen, use that. Otherwise, use Hagners or other stock-sheets. At present, the assumption is that you're relying on a bidder gambling that there's something OK.

I concur, it's really tough to see through the glassine. I looked at the images provided on eBay. I would offer this advise, at least provide scans of the key stamps uncovered.

You have quite a few bidders that are very trusting. I for one would not bid unless there were clear scans.

Pascoe, Would YOU bid on a lot that showcased the material so poorly?

I would be very hesitant to bid on the book based on the pictures. Key stamps need to be pulled out and scanned more clearly. Just my opinion.
