We stock kiloware of the whole world, often
in a number of different categories.
Stocks vary from week to week, and from day to day - personal customers at our shop are always most likely to see the new lines first, or the small batches not worth listing here.
Weights are average net contents.
|Code||Country||Description||Weight * per bag||Price
|Capital 1||United Kingdom||Our "Capital Mix" is our most popular
UK mix. This is material received from charities,
sometimes with some added that we have stored for a while,
and sometimes also with some older stuff mixed in, giving
a wider variety of content than often found. All types
included - definitives, country stamps, commemoratives,
greetings, and Christmas issues. Scottish country stamps
("regionals") are found in good numbers.
||1kg||£10.00 out of stock
|Small 1||United Kingdom||Small stamps only
(except for sometimes some of the Castles high values),
mixed definitives of the general UK issue and the
Scottish, sometimes with a small number of Wales and
Northern Ireland. Sometimes up-to-date stuff, sometimes
also includes older.
|Large 1||United Kingdom||Commemorative and Christmas (we try to keep the Christmas content within 25%, but cannot guarantee it).||100g||£4.20|
|Large 2||United Kingdom||Commemorative and Christmas (as above)||250g||£9.95|
||"Charity Stamps Direct"
box, where people have sent stamps directly to us as
donations to charity. Most packages are not opened by us,
and these boxes are therefore a bit of a gamble ! We
do not entertain returns or complaints on these, as you
are probably as likely to get a marvellous box as a
terrible one. Available
to shop customers only, as a disclaimer form has to be
||Pre-decimal (i.e. everything should be before 1971 - mainly Queen Elizabeth issues, but some older also).||100g
||United Kingdom||Off-paper mix, as
gathered from charities (usually modern/recent) and from
the bottom of boxes in which we have bought collections
(often older), plus sometimes masses that people have
soaked off over the years.
||First Day Covers by weight ! We get
so many of these we are always looking for ways to dispose
of our excess stocks. Absolutely as they come, probably
nearly all typed or handwritten addresses, usually a bit
of duplication. Excellent source of used sets.
|World 1||Foreign||"Superior Grade" World
Kiloware. One of our most popular bags - we sell loads of
this ! A whole-world mix, containing little or no
UK. When material comes in to us, simply if it looks
better it goes into the Superior mix, and if it looks less
exciting it goes into the Standard.
Many of our shop customers make regular repeat purchases.
||"Superior Grade" as above
but in big bags.
|"Superior Grade" - if you are giving us a
mail order for two or more items coming to 2kg, we can
make up an 800g bag of this so as to make a 1.8kg order
which fits within the 2kg weight band and makes the
postage cost more sensible. This might take a little
longer as we don't keep any pre-made bags.
|World 3||World||"Standard Grade"
whole-world mix with a little U.K. Still a decent mix, but
simply not as good as the Superior. Excellent value for
numbers of stamps for the price.
||"Standard Grade" as above
but in big bags.
|"Standard Grade" - see note about Superior
Grade 800g bags above.
||Off-paper mix, as obtained from charities
(usually modern/recent) and from the bottom of boxes in
which we have bought collections (often older), plus bulk
or excess material we sometimes purchase or gather.
Usually contains a smaller number of UK, will usually have
duplication to some degree, and might include a few
damaged stamps, as we do not check these stamps
individually (which also gives the chance of an occasional
Sorry, that description doesn't do the mix justice ! Another of our popular sellers in our shop, with constant repeat sales.
||Seldom seen kiloware, with
surprisingly good variety.
and Isle of Man
|General mix. Tends to have
a mix of definitives and Christmas/commemoratives, and
with material included sometimes going back a few years.
The mix between the islands is not always equal !
||Germany|| Collected by a charity in
Leipzig over a number of months leading up to mid-2008.
Very high proportion of modern Germany, with some older,
and often a reasonable scattering of other countries.
Occasional excess paper.
|EI||Ireland||General mixture - range of
recent years with a scattering of older now and again.
||United States of America
||General mix - some
collected in USA, some in UK. Various ages.
||World Coins||Bags of mixed world coins,
generally quite modern "dross" (low denominations, or
out-of-date, etc.) but with occasional older or more
unusual bits. (Note that postage on coins is quite
||Same mix as above, bigger
||A bag with a selection of British pre-decimal coins, comprising; 20 x penny, 15 x halfpenny, 10 x brass threepence, and two each of farthing, sixpence, shilling, florin, and half crown. We usually call them "Nostalgia Bags".||-
Remember, postage and handling are charged on top of these prices if they are to be sent out. See our "How to Order" page for details.
