If anybody can shed some light on this for me please: does something like an uncancelled FDC exist?

 

Thanks,

Hello Beyers

Blank (no stamp and no cancellation) FDC’s do exist (they are quite common). Thus, uncancelled FDC’s with stamps on will definitely exist as well.

Hi Jacques,

 

Thanks for the feedback. Not so sure about the common part though, unless there isn't a market for them or no one has bothered listing any. I could only find one on bob, listed as a "rare variety".

 

So if there are any dealers out there sitting with uncancelled FDCs with a South African sports theme, stick them up for auction please! :)

 

Kind regards,

 

Beyers

Hello Beyers

 

Can you please post a link to the "rare" FDC?

 

I have some in a box somewhere. Price should be about R2-00 each. When I am ready to list them I will email you about a day before with a link to the listing.

 

Regards

 

Jacques

Hello Beyers

 

Every dealer is entitled to price his / her stock at whatever price. I would have priced the 2 FDC's at R5-00 for both. I hope to list some on Sunday night latest providing I can put enough together to make the listiting worhwhile.

I sold a lot some time ago and basically on average got R10.00 per pair, for one serviced and one unserviced FDC. Considering unserviced FDC's cost about 10 cents each not a bad return.

I must have at least another 100 somewhere!

Regards

David.

Well, I'd be interested in unserviced South African sports FDCs only. So have a look!

 

Thanks,

Hi Beyers

Jacques & David have hit the nail right on the head -R5 -R10 per cover unserviced. The link that you posted with the "rare blank variety" is being a dash over-ambitious

Thanks guys

Kit

Do all stamp issues get a FDC, by the way? Or is it something that is done selectively?

 

Thanks,

Hello Beyers

In theory, all RSA and Nambia stamps get issued on a FDC.

See attached scan

This is the only Sport Unserviced (blank) FDC that I could find (FDC 2.21). Or at least, to me, wine drinking should have been a sport.

Regards

Jacques

Hehehe! I agree with you, but sadly it will not do my collection any good! :D Thanks for looking though. I'll continue my hunt in the meantime...

 

Kind regards,

I recall the PO selling the FDC envelopes some time ago, in an effort to "spruce up" letter writing. The catalogue might still be on their website.

Most interesting - the listing of this item has been deleted on BoB!
