CV vs Indicative Marker Price

Recommended Posts

Stamp and Coin Dealer

It would seem that some people do not understand the meaning of CV and Indicative Market Price.

 

A CV is a value that appears in a Stamp catalogue but that does not mean the stamp is worth that price.

A stamp might have a CV of R100.00 but in the market it could only be worth R5.00.

 

The opposite is also true, A stamp can have a CV of R100.00 but because of scarcity etc. it might be worth R 120.00.

 

Listing an item/collection with an Indicative Market Price does not mean the CV is XYZ but rather that the selling price in the market is XYZ.

 

I would love to have some input from other dealers on BOB.

Cataloguie value should indicate the latest selling prices for that stamp e.g what it is worth ....

How can you say that ...

If it is not, what on earth is the use of a stamp catalogue then?

As a seller in Coins Pierre, I can ask you the same question.  "what on earth is the use of a COIN catalogue then?"

I see coins listed at Buy Now prices at less than 50% of the Coin catalogue price etc.
