I have only broken sheets bought from the Emporium. I just think that if they are no longer on general sale then it is a case of 'cannot be un-done'. But then I am not selling the stamps.

I think you are right Yael, as I am trying to sell whole sheets on ebay at this moment in time.  It seems very few people want whole sheets nowadays, I think most collectors now just look for the individual stamps. Easier to store, easier to trade.

I am breaking my sheets up now because that's the only way I am going to sell off all of my stamps.

If anyone here wants early sheets 2003 - 2008 (I include the pre-'Waterstones' sheets taken to the Bath Postal Museum from 2003) - just shout - but be prepared to pay because I will only sell complete sheets to people who do not have a track record of breaking them up.  

Totally hypocritical I know, as if they do not sell those sheets will be broken up by me instead, but I have learnt to grit my teeth and quietly hum 'The Circle of Life'  to myself while tearing  Tongue
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

Totally none of my business but...

2004  Hogs 3p  -  the sheet came in two versions, depending on whch version you have that might be valued at £200 alone as a complete sheet

Individual stamps sell for around £4-5 between collectors, more on ebay depending how many bidders get involved, depending on which sheet you have that could be 28 or 32 stamps on the sheet. A canny re-seller would charge moe for the corners and d=edges

2005 Thieves 4p and 6p  -  32 stamps to a sheet, valued between £2 - £4 between collectors BUT on certain ebay sellers' pages... £14-£16 each
 And that doesn't include the value of the sport and the added value once borken up of the corners and edges as there was good selvedge decoration on these sheets

   The reprint sheet 4p and 6p only had 30 stamps per sheet so at collectors rates these worth around £60-120 not including an  extar premium for sport, corners etc

So I make that a minumum value of £300 for the 2004/5 sheets


If you want to know more about what yur stamps are worth private message me here there is also a very good database copied from a dropbox being shared by many of the ndiscworld collectors whic is pretty well up to date andmore reliable than 'crazyebay'

your welcome

I would agree that is a good idea  :-)


Bear in mind that posts on this thread will remain here forever. You might prefer not to have your buying/selling skills on permanent public display.
I began this forum as a place to discuss and share ALL cinderella stamps. It is my first forum and is not perfect BUT I will endeavour to make it the best available.

Any positive help appreciated!

I know I should probably start with a lower price and try to haggle, but I'm not really all that good at that sort of thing.

I live in Israel, zip code 44201. 

If my offer is acceptable tell me your PayPal email and I'll give you my full mailing address.

Thank you!


I would want a bankers order or IBACS payment not Paypal and send via an international freight method not a public mail service which costs more but is less likely to go wrong
