The term kilowre used to mean Stamps collected by a charity, school, etc for the time to aquire a few kilos to sell to a dealer. When you bought it from the kiloware dealer the stamps were generaly 85% issues of the last 1 to 5 years. Now I find Current Kiloware sold today about 30 to 40 percent current the rest 10, 20, 30 years old with high price and high shipping with only as small picture to judge if this is worth $40 a pound.
Dealers that kind of mix is called a MIX not Kiloware. Or what opions.
Hi, It's a really Grey area, KiloWare suggests at least 1 Kilo. Thing is, it is not a money earning option, unless one can buy a Kilo for $1.00 and sell it for $3.00 plus postage, if you cannot, do not go there, simple.
Personally, I am not aware of any source where you can buy a kilo for a buck? That also includes definitive stamps as well simply because a lot of collectors will buy cheap kilos to search for the varieties. The definitive stamps are the best odds for these because they were printed from multiple plates.
If buying by the kilo is your thing, then go for it. I have bought kilos in the past but haven't for a number of years now.
