    Sure, I'll accept mint in lieu of used. I kinda have the same situation here with mint versus used in the US. Early US mint can be very expensive and used early US is just expensive. Today's US stamps are easier to 'accumulate' in mint condition, and used (current) US are hard to come by unless you send letters to yourself just to obtain used copies. You'll pay almost face value thru dealers to obtain used copies of current US.

    It's not that I don't collect mint foreign or have some in my collection. It's just that I have so many foreign (approaching 75,000) at minimal catalog value that I don't want to spend 5 cents to mount a stamp with a 3 cents catalog value. The mounts also 'bulk up' the pages in the albums so then I'd have to buy new binders. I already have 25 Minkus Master Global binders (12 cm width across the back spine) filled with pages, and I fill another MG binder every other year with the yearly supplements. US mint (use mounts), US used (use hinges), US plate blocks (use mounts), US sheets (non-acid sheet holders), and Canadian (use mounts) are housed in another 24, albeit smaller albums.

    Steve,

    If you run across any US plate number singles, let me know. But generally I'm just pleased you can use the stamps!

    I've got about 20+ (MNH) singles (some duplicates) with plate # attached (from the 1950's thru early 1960's) that I'd be glad to trade for something like used US in the 29c to 39c range. I can send you a want list of those I'm particularly interested in.

    Are we talking Australian stamps here because I have a slew of them that I got from a generous SCF member and I really don't collect them and have no clue as to scott numbers for them.

    Checked my mailbox today, and both of your postings were contained therein. Contents were in good order.

    If you're willing to do another exchange, I've got a couple of options. One is to send the 100 or so mint US I selected from your Catawiki list (I know you were requesting used, but I can supply mint for most of them), or just continue with the next 100 or so from where I left off with my last shipment of US commemoratives to you?

    If you can work off the GB want list I sent to you, I'll bundle the mint US that I pulled off your Catawiki want list and get them underway on Monday. You can wait until you get my posting, then you can figure out what you consider to be an equitable exchange.

    Larry,

    I am still sorting but have found these five on your list: 3058, 3084, 3145, 3235 & 3273. Send me your shipping info and I will get these out to you. If I can find others, I will send them separately.
    Of your "To Trade" list, I would like to get 1077, 1085, 1112, 1120, 1127. Send me whatever you think is fair.
