It was a disappointment when they did not address the non-perforation sheets other than list them as full print sheets. I expected them at least to give them a sub letter. I think the pressure from collectors was more than they were willing to face. It's a shame because I expected them to be a valuable collectible.
stampsz wrote:the stamp and coin dealers sell this crap, because the buyer is greedy and thinks it will be wort a fortune someday.Examples JFK and Elvis stamps. hoarders bought 100's at a time and waited for the big profit. You can buy these stamps below face. There will always greedy hoarders trying to make a fast buck.I have seen alot of junk sold to collectors, because they wanted it for their collections. Nobody there was greedy. You can collect whatever you want . On the other hand if you don't want it don't buy it.

people always read about others making a killing and they want to also.Analyse why you gave into the hype.
CowboySpirit wrote:Wow! Rich you might have to end up saying at least I am fair on my prices. Most of the times we have always been on the same side of the fence on things. Remember 5 years ago when the guy called Stamp Wants, "full of a nickle and dime sellers". We have came a long way since. This morning, I happen to run a search on "All Stars" in stamps. You should see the offering for auction for a block of 4. It will be at least Sunday, Sept. 9th before I list the lots I have put together, (I am still working 3 jobs when you consider the statement "I am working on stamps", the explaination I give my wife when she wants something done around the house), and it takes a little longer for me to get things listed. Now I am worried someone will just come in and swoop them all up when my intentions are to get them in the hands of collectors. Several weeks ago I sent out a couple of feelers by listing a set of four singles. I listed one here and one on the other site which I haven't done for 5 years. I got less than $2.00 here and less than $4.00 there. So we will see how it goes. But in regards to coins, a guy just told me a story about a set from last year, a set of 5 coins that only 25,000 set were released and they were sold out in 5 hours. The set was originally around $250.00 and because he missed out, he finally got set for $800.00. So apparently this kind of thing goes on all the time.

The same is true for gold, but the general trend for both metals seems to be up because of inflation expectations due to all the deficit spending by various governments around the world. One thing to note is the historical ratio of the prices of gold to silver. It has changed rather dramatically of late.
