I'm trying to determine a buying price for a few Israel MNH w/tabs. A few are missing the selvedge or "full tab", otherwise they're pristine. The asking price is right around 25-30% of catalog.(StampWorld) Does the missing selvedge significantly effect the CV?

Thanks for any input,

Yes, if the selvedge is missing, the value is the same as a single without a tab for most. More valuable tabbed stamps will sell for more, but still a substantial discount off the tabbed value.

Let me add that many people do not know/understand about this "catalog valuation" rule.

Just remember that to be a complete tab, it must continue to the straight edge. Most tabs end like that, but there are some stamps with tabs that run an additional "blank" tab or two to get to the straight edge. (This relates to stamps from Israel only.)

Thanks Michael, I'll equate that into my final offer on the lot. Great explanation on the tabs, too!

Much appreciated,

WB

I agree!
Many catalogues of Israel do not make this clear.

Most stamps pre 1952 ish have a premium. The early years was an unstable era when collecting was popular but circumstances limited the material that was kept. The middle period 1960-1980 ish was well collected and there is a lot of material. The later period 1980ish to present was less well collected, and a lot of this material is still in collections.

Hope this helps.
