Big lot of 56 copies of the 1 shilling roo here.

Should be of interest to the specialist! Some mixed condition here. Haven't checked the perfs/watermarks.

Unless it's through the global shipping program it surely couldn't cost too much?

Bobby,
My Boy Scout's motto, "be prepared"

I have seen shipping to Australia as high as $30 US
(Souvenir sheet)
Try not to assume.

I know this seller--he's a great guy I'm sure his shipping will be entirely reasonable. I don't get why shipping to Oz would be so high, was it registered? I charge $2.50 international, $3.50 if it's a large envelope. People be crazy

For the Kangaroos, $3.50 possible OK, (Will fit a PO preferred)
with larger packages (Souvenir sheets)
I cannot get any cheaper than $14.40 from Australia (Up from $13.50)
(With a mandatory Customs indicia)

Remember, we have to calculate Currency exchange on both sale and ship.
There is a point where it is cheaper to buy at home.

Maybe off topic, what would be a reasonable international shipping fee for a big stock book with stamps? I saw 50 US$ for this, or for 3 empty stock books (20$ for 1).

I've seen single stamps attract higher postage than $30 Rod. Crazy I know.

Postal rates seem to have rocketed. Looking at the Royal Mail website, a 2kg small parcel to Australia is now 30. If you can wait, "economy", i.e. sea, is half that.

Literature from US
75Lbs (35 Kilograms) to Perth
$575 US ( c $800 AUD) (Insurance included)

Still probably saved in excess of $500 from buying locally.
(kudos to members of SCF to whom I am eternally grateful)

Rod, I'm happy to ship using USPS standard international first class for $1.70 at buyer's own risk. Registered mail is indeed quite expensive ($18.70 on top of the actual postage)...

Thanks Gvol
I posted the query, mainly due to some ebay lots prevent bidding
due to lack of information etc.
It may be a "heads up" for vendors.

For example I recently wanted to bid on one of Geoff's GB lots
but "does not post to Australia"
It was unable to be remedied.
