A substantial amount of kiloware is bought by the non-collector market. It is exported overseas where it is "re-birthed" as "unused no gum" and re-sold back into Australia as discount postage. Scandalous really.

Thanks Plateflaw! The clean skins and stamp cleaning destroys much available recent aus kiloware. It is a pain when only wanting stamps as stock stamps for collecting.
Have been winning Aus $1 & $1.10 kiloware from people contacting me plus eBay. Standout is many sellers only want the clean skins out of the kiloware. They know nothing about stamps. Am doing nicely sorting through their left overs. A person who does not know about kiloware or stamps misses a lot of their target stamps when sorting. They score 5kg kiloware that is 22,500 stamps to sort not knowing what is up or down. Other advantage is a good amount of sheet stamps are showing up. Have sorted 12kg with another 10kg to sort. The amount of sheet stamps is encouraging. Am getting 20% fine/ very fine s/a stamps and another 15% with large light postmarks plus a couple of dozen High values. These light spray jet cancels are an improvement from the heavy black jet spray cancels as postie-bike and dog-aware we saw with the $1 issues. The cancels on these $1 stamps totally destroyed many of them.
Another area of interest for me is the $1.10 kiloware has been around for nearly 3 years now so the incoming stamps have bit of variety to them and is now a good time to start getting $1.10 kiloware from charity at auction.

I don't bid with Status at all. Their opening bids are often close to retail, which makes it difficult for resellers to make a profit.
