MY14) Austrlia: Three albums of AUSIPEX 1984 stamps and related material and issues. AUSIPEX 84 was a MONSTER show, At the absolute height of the stamp boom globally and every stamp issuing entity was there.
Sydney Dealer Manfred Junge had the clever idea of making a set of superb albums to house these. He commissioned nice Gold Blocked Burgundy ring albums and has superb heavyweight parchment colour pages with the attractive “AUSIPEX 84” logo at top. Then he sourced all the gazillion of different stamp issues ,and proofs and stationary etc, made for the show.
Some of it was made in small numbers and have always been elusive.
There are things here like the Hungary perf AND imperf numbered sheets. Die Proofs, overprints and special issues. Pricey NUMBER sheets and covers. The always short supply issues like Lesotho Set of 5 sheetlets, Tonga, and all sorts of exotic places like Albania Cuba and Mongolia issues etc.
All fresh MUH. Also much special stationary etc.
Ex Deceased estate and the owner had receipts in there for $850 for these items, plus the albums cost close to $200. So a total cost 30 odd years ago of $1050 for just some of this lot. About 150 pages of goodies it looks like, so my price around a very reasonable $4 a page…. $595

We do however have a great new item: Ka Be, one of the most respected German manufacturers now has a 64 black page padded binder stockbook, with double linen hinging. These retail at $66 each, however as an introductory offer we can supply at $55 each or $249 for a carton of 5. Colours available are Black, Dark Blue, Dark Green or Maroon.
