I have a few of the early Finnish Roulette stamps. As anyone who has come across these stamps knows, pulled perfs, etc are common.

I'm trying to catalogue mine. I will put up some pictures soon but I'm curious what condition would be acceptable to a common collector of these issues?

re: Finland - 1860-74 Roulette issues

I agree with you that those stamps with all teeth intact are a challenge to find. The catalog values tend to support that. I would think from my experiences, and from what Scott states in the catalog that these stamps are more commonly found with one or two short teeth. More than that, and you are looking more at a filler stamp.

The Scott Classic catalog values these stamps with full teeth, and has valuations with the stamps with one or two short teeth. The values for the stamps with one or two short teeth vary in markdown from full catalog value based on the stamp's scarcity, but appears to be mostly in the 60% to 80% off of catalog value. More damage than that Scott basically considers the stamps to be fillers.

re: Finland - 1860-74 Roulette issues

Thanks Michael. I have (for sure) - Scott #4-9. There is one in there that I have 2 copies of and both are not "top notch" but at the same time I'm not sure that they would both be considered fillers - one, yes, I'm inclined to lean that way - the other not so sure.

When I get a chance I'll post the pics. I'm curious about what others think when they see them.

CV in general is not that important to me but considering the fact that I'm making it a habit now to create full inventory of my stamps - since all aspects of my collection are specialised in some way (either by complete countries or topics and my WW stops at 1950), I want to have a clear inventory of everything, in case, God-forbid something happens to me. Then they will be more easily sold.

I know the WW would be cherry-picked but in the cases of other parts of my collection, they should be able to be sold intact. (No, I'm not doom and gloom - just realistic in the fact that I may not be the one who is the person selling it.)
