FDC Quantities

3 posts in this topic

Hi All

 

I noticed that in 1983 Lutz stopped listing the quantities of FDC's that were produced. Does anyone know the reason for this?

 

Regards

Hello Gabriel1

 

Pure speculation from my side…

 

Perhaps the catalogue editor felt that the numbers produced were to high! Publishing these figures might have had a negative impact on the retail value of the relevant FDC’s?

Hi All

 

Looking at the SACC valuations of later FDC's compared with the prices of a set of used stamps there seems to be little difference

 

This actually brings something else to mind

 

Maybe excuse my ignorence (I have only revived my interest in stamp collecting ofter a long dormant sabatical)

 

I was always under the impression used stamps had to be postally used

 

These days you get cancelled to order, unaddressed maxi cards, unaddressed FDC's.

 

All of which has never seen a postmans bag

 

What has changed??

 

Regards to all and happy festive season

Hello Korrie

I am sitting with a couple of Bophuthatswana sets – COMMERCIALLY USED. These sets are RARE. I will never put them on BidorBuy, knowing that I will not get more than a third of the Cancelled-to-Order catalogue Value.

 

Once again, it is the market that dictates…
