This is a wonderful lot.   My BEST selling line all year.   Another few pallets of stock just arrived.  All BLACK pages as that is what all collectors prefer.  Your stamps look SO much better on black pages than white.  The universal best-seller 32 page size.   And remember these are all the LARGE standard "A4" (quarto) page size.  One dealer was offering a "special" to clients at cheaper price per stockbook, but they were the teeny little half  "A5" sized pages!

This new Deluxe line has really CLASSY looking covers front and back - like a rich 'marbled' leather look I suppose you'd call it.  SO much nicer looking than the boring solid colours used for the past 30 years - even by "Lighthouse"!  A lovely mix of cover colours per carton as you can see in photo.  Five different colours - 2 books in each colour per carton.  PERFECT for your fast location of your GB, NZ, Norfolk or USA or Canada collections.   

 These are top quality West German made "Lighthouse" books.  The BEST!  Surely your stamps DESERVE the best .... and at HALF the usual storage costs ..... why ever not?!   The photos above were taken by me, and are of the books and colours you actually receive.

Do NOT even think of buying Asian made stockbooks.  They all look cheap and nasty right from day #1, all pages and covers are highly acidic, non linen hinged, and the pages warp. They RUIN your stamps as the high acid content, combined with our humidity bathes your stamps in literally a weak acid bath - all year long.  This accelerates toning/foxing, which RUINS your stamps.  "Saving" a few dollars a book could ruin your stamps worth $1,000s.  Just dumb.  

Lighthouse uses neutral bleached board for pages and covers to alleviate this problem.  West German top quality.  For many decades the brand "Lighthouse - Leuchtturm" has been synonymous WORLDWIDE with meaning "top quality".  The BMW or Mercedes Benz of the stamp storage industry.  All with the famous 5 gold embossed bands on the spines, and the famous Lighthouse logo in gold on spine and front cover.

These books have CRYSTAL CLEAR strips - 9 strips per page.  This is much more expensive than glassine to manufacture of course, but with glassine your stamps are always half hidden behind murky/cloudy type glassine when you look at them.  Look at the photo above – can you even see where the strips ARE??   You see 100% of the stamps.   VERY few stockbooks (only a few %) sold in the past 25 years have CLEAR strips, as the cost to make them is high.  Strong LINEN HINGED pages on both sides for very long wear, and DOUBLE glassine interleaving to protect all your stamps - and stopping the cheaper single interleaved pages from tangling and crumpling up - which they ALWAYS do!   

Postage and insurance is of course extra, but as always, I use carefully selected, light cancelled, philatelically VERY valuable stamps and se-tenant strips, small run modern mini sheets of 10 etc on every carton mailed, so the "real" shipping cost is often basically zero to you.  POSTAGE ON TWO BOXES is exactly the SAME as ONE box within Sydney!  Indeed, TO ANYWHERE within the Sydney Metro/Central Coast/Newcastle/Wollongong costs the SAME for 1 or 2 boxes - i.e. $A12 post and packing in total.  (Add $3 if Reg’d required on all orders)

Don't ask me why but if I mail you ONE stock book it costs exactly the same as TWENTY books costs!  Australia Post calls anything over 500g a "parcel" therefore 501 grams to 20 kilos costs the identical dollar figure to ship to these areas above.  So you save a FORTUNE on shipping if buying your stockbooks in one order. 

At less than Aust. 80c a page getting 2 boxes is a deal you cannot not seriously consider.  Your page cost is way less!   In nearly all of Australia heavy parcels are delivered to your door by an Australia Post parcels contractor - i.e. no lifting for you!

And remember if you buy the box of 20 your books are wonderfully protected from corner damage.  Each box of 10 is in a separate carton, and then both those solid cartons are in a REALLY thick purpose made outer carton - as they were shipped from Germany in.  Even if dropped from a metre up, a box of 20 will survive perfectly!  

Even all boxes of 10 are re-packed by me with extra padding to minimise any corner damage.  All edges are secured by me with expensive fibreglass filament tape to reduce chances of any bursting or damage.  I take HUGE care in the way I pack and ship parcels, and always have.

That is 320 pages of quality low acid, black page storage for under Aust. 85c a page.  (Only Aust. 80˘ a page for the 2 box buy!)  A British made HAGNER sheet is R.R.P. $1.55 each these days - with no binder of course!   So you are getting classy German made 'Lighthouse' stockbooks for in effect at  HALF the price per page of 32 Hagner sheets - which have no binder!  (And which are nowhere near as classy or permanent a storage medium as a Lighthouse stockbook of course.)

Order fast before these are sold out.  My next shipment will cost me more - sad but true, as wholesale price has increased.  Band together with a friend and share them 5 each, or order a carton via your stamp club etc. 

One client in Newcastle has ordered TEN cartons (100!) of these off me in the few months since I have ran this special.  As I point out above, the postage cost to him for TWO cartons is often the same in $$s as ONE carton!   A strange Australia Post quirk, but true.  A huge carton delivered registered post right to your front door for $12 seems nuts.   Just ONE stockbook attracts the identical mailing cost.    

REMEMBER: It is a great idea to now and again re-house ALL your stamps.   At this price why not do that NOW?  Stockbooks 10-15 years old WILL have mould growing on the pages if stored in Australia.  NO doubt about it.  In any coastal areas it will start in well under 10 years.  And on black pages it is VERY hard - indeed almost impossible -  to see with the naked eye.  You WILL see it using a UV lamp - go check your books!  For a measly $25 a new stockbook to put your $1,000s of stamps into a brand new clean book makes superb sense. 

A decent pizza costs more than this.  Foxing on the STAMPS will lose you half their value - or indeed, even more.  Once mould starts on the stockbook pages, that toning/foxing/rust spreads like a cancer to the other pages and to the stamps inside.  Like fruit in your fruit bowl at home .... one piece of fruit gets mould and the entire bowl has it within 24 hours.  Stamps are no different.  It spreads fast.  AND your old stockbooks are bound to have the VERY old fashioned cloudy GLASSINE strips, so you can't see your stamps clearly anyway!  Another good reason to replace them all NOW at this great price!

 


 

In 25 years of stamp dealing I have learnt one truism.  No collector can EVER have too many empty stockbooks!  Just because you "think" you will not use 10 or 20 (or 30 or 40 or 50) you are WRONG!

 

    Trust me.      



Retail price is $33 each.  My 2 carton buy is more than 25% below retail price! 

 

I am selling these ONLY in  Factory cartons of TEN for $A270  (Stock code 592SK)

 

Or TWO factory cartons of ten = 20 stockbooks -  for just $A500!
 (
UNDER A80˘ a  page!)
– around 25% below retail. (Stock code 592SL)

 

(And yes, I will quote even lower prices on larger buys - dealers, re-sellers or collectors with a LOT of re-housing to do please enquire!)

Using quotes ( " ) is more accurate for multi word searches - i.e. "Australian FDC" gives FAR more specific matches than simply Australian FDC if used with no quotes. Search is NOT case sensitive. Tip - keep the search word singular - "Machin" yields  far more matches than "Machins" etc.
