I'd like to send out a huge "thank you" to the sellers on your auction and approval service. Over the last few weeks I've picked up some amazing items from Cuba, U.S. Philippines, Switzerland (officials for The League of Nations ) and some fantastic early U.S. items. It's probably not proper to name names, but you know who you are. There are some amazing items offered at good prices and thanks are definitely in order! You people provide a great service, thanks again from a happy customer. I should also thank the people who answer some of the dumb questions I ask on a regular basis!

For the two who liked Philip's response, does that mean there are three people out the who want to see me tarred and feathered? Who said this was a friendly site? Worried Rock On

Honestly, I meant my comment as a sincere thank you to the sellers, nothing more.

When I was an apprentice, I was happy when the journeymen teased me or joked around - it meant that I was one of the gang. So lucky you! LoL

re: Thanks for the great stuff!!!

Harvey,

I am accepting the thanks on the sellers' behalf, although I am not one of the sellers. It is only fitting that at least once a month a straightforward comment receives a straightforward response.

There

And this does not negate the journeyman's teasing nor Ian's imperfectly brewed tea (a bag? really?).

re: Thanks for the great stuff!!!

David:- Do you not have teabags in the U.S.A.?

Tea comes in two forms, loose leaves or encased in a perforated bag. The bag allows the tea to infuse and does not allow the tea leaves into your cup/mug. If the teabag bursts your cup/mug is unexpectantly flooded with leaves.

I hope your teabag bursts is a better "curse" than "May your next meal run through you like hot lead and your hair turns to drumsticks and batter some sense into you."Laughing

Ian,

my Irish wife would sooner beat me with that drumstick you've been bandying about than use bags.

Steep softly and carry a big drumstick, no?

So you're married to a cailín.

You definitely have to be careful as they have a fearsome reputation.

Ian,

the warning comes 40 years too late; and glad I didn't hear it then; the ride was bumpy but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

and "fearsome" seems perhaps a bit too polite

re: Thanks for the great stuff!!!

Stagecoach, have just had a look at your book, could not find it in the GB section but did find it elsewhere.
Firstly, though the prices are good the images have been cropped too much and parts of the stamps are not visible.
Secondly faults are not described.
I got as far as page 8 then gave up as none of the images show the reverse of the stamps.
The 1d QV with pearls (page7?) I count 16 on each of the stamps whereas you say one has 14, not by my counting.
I appreciate your giving us a chance to buy better valued stamps at reasonable prices but we need to be able to make an informed choice which requires having better images including the reverse which is where a lot of damage is found.

re: Thanks for the great stuff!!!

I'll throw in my 5 cents worth again. I quite often see damage that is not mentioned, missing perfs, missing corners, etc. As long as the photo shows the damage and the price reflects the damage I usually don't make a comment. I bid on a stamp a little while ago that had a small rip that wasn't mentioned, but the price was right. This stamp was hard to find so the damage didn't bother me too much. As long as I know it's there I'm OK, but according to your rules it should be mentioned. Just my opinion...
