    Don’t count your chickens guys OP link says free gift nothing about $6 of stamps for the record :)

    To further that probably the ozbargainer with 100 a/c’s will # up the cause of a decent gift from experience .

    Just in case anyone might mistakenly get the stamp collecting bug, my late mother collected a wide variety of new Australia Post stamps and first day covers (and coins) in the 1960's and onwards. After keeping them for 60 years, the dealer has told us that we might as well use them ourselves for letters.

    NOT a very good investment!

      /serious hat on
      I've noticed a lot more these days people seem to think hobbies are only good if they have a good "investment" value.
      I'm as stingy as anyone but that's for value, rather than investment.

      /hat off
      Don't be so sure. I mean look at the joke of how (at least for that short term moment) people paid ridiculous money to "collect" a NES mini. And that's not even an original remake. … people pay even more for those which back on the day also was probably thrown out a lot as trash if it broke.

        True

        I sold a few things for substantial coin that otherwise I was going to throw away.

        Some people will pay a premium for your items even if they are old. You just have to be patient

        This was not a hobby for my mother, she invested serious dollars and it was a complete waste of money. That being said, if you want to collect stamps as a hobby, go right ahead - but do NOT expect it to necessarily accrue any value at all.

        And I am pretty sure - if I can't get a buyer for hundreds/thousands of dollars worth of coins and stamps after SIXTY YEARS, I'm not going to hang on to them for another 60 years. It is plainly ridiculous to say I just need to be patient.

          At least with coins they will always hold their 'face value' at minimum… Older Australian coins often contain Silver, making them more valuable.

        •  

          I agree fully, my Dad collected lots of first day covers thinking it would be a good investment. Most are worth less than face value and it was suggested just use them to post letters.

      I just spoke to the SA Philatelic Society who conbfirmed that my old stamps are only worth 20-30% of face value to collectors. Again his advice was to use them on letters! https://apf.org.au/sa/

        in the same boat. idiot father heard from a 'friend' that it was a good investment. we took them to a stamp collecting place and was told $50 for the lot - they cost thousands over the years.

        completely worthless really.

        yep, gonna try again when robots roam the earth and paper is extinct because we're all tapped into the hive via brain stem.

        Yes, that is the case for most stamps from the 70s/80s when stamp collecting was all the rage and people bought copies upon copies of your run of the mill stamps from the post office.

        This minisheet however would be the exception as can't buy in store so philatelist lapped them up and it will be more than face value. To get the most coin, get it cancelled and sell it as most people keep these mint so used ones are rarer.

        Also, if you guys want to part with your collection dm me as I'm always buying (as long as they are decimal and mint) :)

      Was there a reason why the dealer said they were not worth more?

    Thanks OP. Got mine a couple of days ago, I never seem to have a stamp when I need one so always good to have a few lying around. Loving the UV keychain light that came with it. Been having a lot of fun going full on CSI discovering all the hidden UV ink on bank notes, credit cards, drivers license etc.

  •  

    Got mine a few days back. Wonder how long the battery will run in the little UV light

    I've received nothing to date. I ordered it on the same day as my Dad and he received his two weeks ago and we live a suburb apart. Think mine's gone AWOL!?
