Thanks Rod.

We were going really well getting these new self adhesive die cuts off paper in very warm water until the new issues came out. They seem to have a deeper cut to them that makes for heaps of failed attempts.

Also noticed sorting this last batch of charity kiloware that many stamps have a die cut triangle missing and I am leaving them out of my kiloware. So it looks like the users of these stamps have a lot of stamp triangles stuck to their fingers.Very sad really!

In the Australia kiloware section on eBay there has been a seller that offers 10 or 15 different set of these new $1 stamps on paper at a good price for them and the buyer. Have not seem them listing for a while now. Maybe the die cuts are spoiling the attractiveness of buying the new $1 stamps this way.

Edit: Our local Bunnings no longer has any un-do left on their shelves. We bought them out of stock. lol

John, you deserve every success.
I do not know where you get the patience.
I can only manage 6-10 at a time before being bored.
I release just the stamps I wish to mount, and that's it.

A year on and I am finding no problem as yet, with the talcum on the gum, in the stamp mounts.

Talcum powder! Interesting!

Can remember a comment some decades ago about a dealer getting many older stamp albums that were treated with talcum powder applied by sprinkling it over the top of your stamp album to stop humidity starting rust coming into your stamp collection.

It was a negative comment but I believe it is a positive one for this new way to take stamps off paper with un-do.

The negative was that they could not remove the bulk talcum powder build up from the stamps. It had a stuck to the stamp effect not able to be removed.

Now for the positive they had no trouble with the stamps that had the talcum powder access removed from the stamps at the time of application. Got the impression that these stamp albums were many, many decades old.

Well at least all the new $1 die cuts stamps with a triangle missing are all going into my left overs kiloware.

Can see these 2nd grade stamps making some budget minded collectors very happy.

At least am at a point that I know now how I need to sell my stamp stock.

Am going back to selling gum/sheet stamps used off paper very recent $1 sets & singles. Have 2kg of this type of kiloware and need to sort 15kg to get some more gum stamps only. So long as I can get this kiloware Will be selling gum/sheet stamps sets & singles.

The bulk of the stock am just going to bundle it up and sell it
larger amounts.

This change could take over 12 months to get sales traction.

So begins my 61th year!

Finally there is a break through. Have an idea to go forward with stamps this includes me back selling singles & sets on eBay again.

So there is a need to get the most out of my time allotted each day.
It will take 12 months to pick up sales traction going by past sales experience.

The stamp selling area must be of the harder to come by stamps. For me that is the last 3 years of Australia decimal New $1 issues Gum/sheet stamps. Era end 2015 to 2018.

These stamps are very difficult to come by in postally used condition. So have ruled off the stamps stock selling list from Oct 2015 & before. It is like starting all over again. It is 2015 & on now! Sheet/Gummed Stamps Only!

Have taken Sheet/Gummed Only. 2kg x $1 gum issues & 500g of high denomination stamps all on paper out of my kiloware stock. All issues are from over the last 3 years.

All this has taken place since Dec 31st to today to sort & soak the $1 + high denominations stamps and to process 3 complete basic sets & singles all postally used from the last three years being end 2015 & to now! Sheet/Gummed Stamps Only.

It is really nice to be doing stamps seriously again. Am just so involved in this era of stamps already. It just makes sense to go that bit further with it all.

Here we go!

Finished! Have put together 3 complete sets + more in a stock book. All gummed $1 & H/V used stamps only, from end 2015 to the end of 2018 in sets & singles making up 69 lots in stock cards ready to be listed within our eBay store.

My raw kiloware stock has turned out to be very even in issues making up a very high number of set etc. What is not in the stock book is sorted into, stamp used, recycled sandwich bags and then has been filed in order inside a good size plastic container for the job to hold it all together.

Really had a great time doing this. To do that much in such a short time equals a lot of experience from years of listing stamps on eBay.

Now am thinking what next. There is a lot that can be done!

To get 2kg of the new $1 issues as gum examples has come out of about 25kg to 30kg of the new $1 issues only and the same amount again to get about 150g of H/V issued over this same period.

To amass 2kg of gummed kiloware on paper takes me about 18 months to 2 years.

The stamp bug has got me again!

Have put together 69 lots of the new $1 issues as singles or sets.

Also have put together 69 lots of S/A interpost.

Yesterday did 112 lots of interpost gummed stamps as singles.

Today did High Denomination from 2000 to 2018 and have about 80 lots.

To open a eBay Featured Store at $50 per month it offers me 1500 listings per month. I have reached my listing limit or am very close to it. Am thinking of opening another eBay Featured Store for the letter rate sets. I just cannot pay $550 per month for a Anchor Store having unlimited listings.

Have so many letter rate stamp issues in sets. 2 years ago I was working with 1500 listings per week.

Have a pile of scanning to do. And then there is the listings! Enjoying all of it!

My youngest asked to be able to do a singing event in the UK.

I said yes I can put enough stamp on you to mail you to the UK.

Some years later she got her dream.

She has helped me so much with stamping!

My ruff estimation of items to list has gone way over 375 items.

It looks like I will have too loose some of the more common/cheaper high denominations to get it all to work with 500 listing per every 10 days.

Have also 3 kiloware lots that are listed at present every 7 days. Sometimes I get more kiloware lot to list as well.

Every item I drop gives me an extra 3 listings per month.

Have just finished a chat with eBay and asked about having to get the listing power for 2 feature store payments lots to get 3,000 listing per month in one store and the answer was NO. Asked also if I could use my user name & feedbacks for opening another store and the answer again was NO! Even asked for some free listings. Will see what happens. At least I did not hear the word NO!

Am needing a store that is half way between a feature store & an anchor store but it just can not happen. At least I now now for sure!

To start eBay store #3 I do not feel good about it. Would prefer paying $35 a month for someone to service an on line store for me.

Could get around an extra 900 listing if I increase my plant store to a feature store. At present I only have 2 listings in that store. Not sure about doing that but it would work. Have around 450 feedback at a 100% with the plant store. But plant stores in general just attract neg feedbacks. Everyone is a full on experience horticulturist, not but they sure do think they are. You just have to expect stupid neg feedback by delusional........
