Annual PO Year Books - the PERFECT way to collect!

 Buy at up to 50% discount
off my normal low prices!

 

Australia was the FIRST country in the world as far as I know, to issue large size annual year books. They started way back in 1981.  Everyone copied them later!  They  are globally popular now.

These large A4 (“Quarto”) sized books contain all the Australian stamps issued in that year, and are placed on sale at year end.  Clear Mylar Hawid mounts are already neatly affixed to each page, so the stamps can be quickly and safely inserted, leaving a beautiful and fascinating stamp product.

For collecting modern issue stamps in the Australian climate these are THE best thing you can buy. Dust, humidity, moisture and insects just do NOT get into the stamps, I have found in my 37 years of buying and selling these books. If I buy an Estate lot where the early year books are stored along with stockbooks and albums, the stamps in the Year Books are mostly in perfect condition after 35 years, and many of the same issues stored right around them have toning/foxing/rust among them.

That is by far the most important point. The heavy SLIPCASES each of these comes supplied in, keeps out dust, and seems to largely keep out the humidity and moisture, that causes foxing. Year Books for the Australian climate are the perfect way to collect modern stamps.

Secondly, the presentation of the stamps and the artwork and detail on the pages, is an absolute credit to Australia Post.  High gloss varnished paper, and double facing pages of info on EVERY stamp issue.  Laden with photos and factual background information.  For collectors with younger children or Grandchildren, this is a goldmine for their education and general knowledge.

The average Australian 12 year old sadly does NOT learn this stuff in school anymore it seems.  Most would not have a clue who George Bass, Murray Rose, Alec Campbell, Edmund Barton, Jessie Vasey, Weary Dunlop, Frederick McCubbin, Roden Cutler, Don Bradman or Lawrence Hargraves were, or even who the British Monarch was when Australia was founded or during WW2.  Sad but true. Teenagers today have ZERO idea of these areas.  

The same youngsters have no idea whatever what a Flannel Flower looks like, what year Western Australia was founded, what the 'Cutty Sark' was, where the 1988 Olympics were held, and when the Snowy Mountains Scheme commenced etc. This is our HISTORY and HERITAGE here, and the schools simply do not teach it anymore it seems clear to me.

The answers to ALL these questions and facts are contained in Year Books. If the Education System does not bother to teach it any more, Grandparents and Parents can do their small bit to educate the next Generation.

Youngsters LIKE looking at these books as they are bright and colourful with lots of photographs. They absorb this knowledge like a sponge.  Anything that can drag them away for 15 minutes from iPhones and iPads, silly on-line games, cellphone text messaging, Facebook, and internet music downloads etc, is a PLUS.

Folks often buy a set of these books right from the birth year of a child or grandchild. They are then an easy present to keep up to date with each ensuing year.  THEN after 20 or 30 years, your gift has turned into an incredibly valuable ASSET they inherit.

As far as 'value for money' - you can't beat these - especially at my prices. Remember you are buying MINT STAMPS here - which is like buying cash in a way.  Look at my prices - for many of the books you are buying them even now - over 30 years since issue, at virtually the PO issue price, like the 1985 book - BEFORE my 27% bulk-buy discount!  All the Mint stamps inside are postally valid in EVERY book - so you can use them on letters and parcels if you wish.  How can you lose?

And children aside, heaps of adults like buying the books, as not only are ALL the stamps in one place so you miss nothing, they are all in good condition, and stay that way. Unlike FDC or packs etc, you do not need to buy expensive albums to house them in. These are fully self-contained, and ready to go neatly on a wardrobe shelf, the moment you buy them.

The Year Books are compact and easy to store - a full set from 1981 fits neatly in a metre or so of bookshelf space. Or store in a box in the garage or spare bedroom even.  As they are in protective slipcases, they are THE easiest stamp product to store, wherever you have space.  And if and when you sell them, you have a saleable and readily traded entity. “Cash”.

The "Leather" (Executive) books are VERY classy.  All have been Black Leather covers with brass corners since first issue in 1986, so they are a fully matched set. Covers are thickly padded and deeply gold inscribed on front and spine and have matching black leather slipcases.  Australia Post charges about $30 more for each one over the regular book, due to high cost of making the genuine Leather covers, (the stamp contents are identical in each year) and almost NO dealer has stock of recent years at any price, from the past 5 years or so.

Many of the books of either type are scarce. The 1988 sold out WAY ahead of time, as it was a popular "Bicentennial" gift for the general public to send to friends and relatives overseas.  Most stamp collectors missed out, and hence the high price.  My keen price is $A95 before any discounts, yet the Seven Seas Stamps colour “ASC” market leading catalogue lists that book as $A210 retail in 2017 Edition.  As you can see, my price is well under HALF retail - before any discounts are deducted.

The 2000 Year Book surprised everyone, by having in it, the Australia “Sydney Olympic Gold Medal Winners” sheetlet of 16.  NO other way could you obtain this sheetlet. Hence my $A120 price - that sheetlet alone retails for $100 in many shops.

I have ALWAYS had the largest stock of PO Stamp Year Books in Australia.  I buy more Deceased Estates than anyone else it seems, and also folks come to me when selling these books, as they know I will buy them.  And I thus MUST sell as cheaply as I can, to MOVE all this stock - or I will drown in it!  Send a link to this page, to anyone you know with a few book gaps - tinyurl.com/AnnualPO

With me you are buying assured QUALITY.  I cannot overemphasise the importance of that.  For starters, 95% of the 1983, 1984, 1986 and 1987 Books on the market are STUFFED.   MOST with inner and outer inside Covers foxed and rusty, and/or “sticky” outers, and not suitable for ANY collection.  I scrap 100s a year of those years alone for postage.  Buy off ebay or gumtree or “friends” who have just ONE of each, and you get their junk.  Kids that have taken them to “show and tell” school sessions, where the pages of books get grubby and stained and gooky etc.  

You pay the same $20 Registered post for a second or third grade copy, as for a good one, and then another $20 to mail the junk back for refund.  And waste an hour, and get raised blood pressure.  A mug’s game.  The average amateur seller cannot see or identify or recognise foxing or rusting - they are quite oblivious to it.  “MY books are SUPERB”.   Yeah, sure.  These folks see these books just ONCE in their lifetime.  I have seen them each day for 40 years!  An experienced dealer is NOT clueless.  I ONLY sell nice books.

Check my '30% Off' discount for 10 year runs - these are GREAT prices as you can see.  Get a massive '50% Off' for buying two runs!  I'd rather make $3 a book profit and sell 10 or 20 at once, than $20 a book and sell just one book. That is where I differ from most dealers.  Also you save a fortune on shipping with carton buys.  One book costs exactly as much to mail, as a 22 book carton within Sydney general area.  You buy more - you pay less.  You do the Maths on that.  Which is why I am in business after 40 years, and most other dealers are not.

  2010-2018 Albums. The production run of these years was cut back VERY sharply over previous year numbers. Certainly all PO’s sold out VERY fast, and could not get more. I have had a ton of orders for these, and NO other dealers globally seem to have stock of them all - that is a FACT. Licensed PO’s do not like them now, as retail was controversially about $10 more than face in 2013, so scrapping old unsold ones for stock made little fiscal sense to LPO owners, so they often do not bother stocking them anymore. Hence the stamp market scarcity!
 
 
  **These Deep Green 'Specialist' books trio contain Frama labels, the expensive “Across Town” labels, Box Link stamps, strips of peel'n'stick coils with info separator labels on them, booklets, and other highly sought specialist items etc. Most were broken down and ‘scrapped’ for postage. They are the exact same size and look, as the other Year Albums, and are in hard slipcases, and are all VERY SCARCE as not many bought them.   SPECIAL - all 3 Books for $A250 - save $35! )
 
 
 

*** Contents exactly same as the usual 1987 Annual PO Year Album, but with totally new 4 colour outer cover and matched slipcase, each with the bold colour splash Expo’88 logo on jet black gloss background - see photo below.  Very cool.  PO had a booth there, but these things cost a fortune decades back at $45, so they sold almost none, and visitors instead bought the very many far cheaper 37¢ Expo 88 FDC for 50¢  etc!  Postage then was 37¢, so the $43 cost of this slipcased book was $A130 in today’s buying power relativity in our era of $1 stamps now, so clearly almost none were sold, as casual Expo’88 visitor souvenirs!  The Philatelic Department Melbourne never advertised them, or even advised collectors they existed, hence the huge scarcity today.  One of Australia’s rarest official PO emissions for sure. Right up there with the 1970 Definitive Pack issued for EXPO 70 in Japan with Japanese translation inside - value today $2,500 of that, as again few sold due to high cost.  I see one only each few years, and can add you to waitlist - $A375 - order as Stock 682HC
 

 

 

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:  The debut brown 1981, being issue #1, had thin, flimsy, super glossy varnished board covers, and never were issued with a vinyl outer, so always are somewhat worse for wear.  It scruffs and scratches and damages easily, and they did NOT have an outer vinyl cover when sold by PO.  The “Deluxe” 1984 and 1986 books had strange outer covers, that had an oily content in board that generally “sweats” after 30 years. I’ve handled many 100s of each. They near ALWAYS are sticky/tacky, and shows fingerprints etc. And when left in outer plastic sleeves even more so, often ‘sticking’ solid to them. The years either side are all fine.  Near all are like that after 30 years, and my books are hand-selected, and are FAR better than most around. The clear trend these days is to store the books free of the outer plastics, that certainly were NOT meant for long term storage.  And differed greatly in size, material and appearance over the decades.  And in the case of the 1984 and 1986, create the “oily” cover issues. They look far better, and will last better, stored in the hard slipcases, without plastic outers. Trust me!  Glen

Superbly packaged “INTRODUCING
AUSTRALIA” Large Album

If you think your PO Book collection is complete you are WRONG
unless you have this 1989 album!

 

"INTRODUCING AUSTRALIA" - THE BEAUTY, WILDLIFE AND HERITAGE OF AUSTRALIA THROUGH STAMPS” -  Been about a DECADE since I had one of these in stock.  THE most lavish packaging of ANYTHING ever sold by AP in these hard bound formats.  EVER.  Contains a classy full colour, hard cover 60 page book, with hard cover slipcase - the same size and exterior look as a PO Year Book.

Then like found in a Year Book, there are a collection of MUH stamps on a Hagner from 1989 - Famous Australian Artists, Sport, Recreation, Performing Arts, Sheep and The Pastoral Era etc.  I've seen these “Introducing Australia” collections offered in the past by dealers for over $500.   I even see second hand damaged ones for over $1,000 -  tinyurl.com/IntroAust  They are REALLY scarce,  A HEAP more photos here  - tinyurl.com/IntAust 

The BASIC nucleus of it is a full colour, hard cover 60 page book, metallic lettered cover, with hard cover slipcase - the same size and look as a thick PO Year Book. This is all encased in a classy custom made hard thick outer box, also with the same classy metallic silver embossed printing, that opens up to protect it all and allows the book and Japanese booklet and stamps to be held safely.

There is also a 15 page book translating all the wording into Japanese.  Then rather like as in a Year Book, there are MUH stamps neatly stored on a Hagner from 1989 - Famous Australian Artists, Sport, Recreation, Performing Arts, Sheep and The Pastoral Era etc.

I've seen these books offered in the past by dealers for $450. They are REALLY scarce, and I have no idea where they were issued.  The Japanese language book inside is a pointer however!   The few books I have seen over the decades have the had the Japanese Language booklet tossed away as owners could not read it understandably.  BIG mistake!

Remember the first few of the early PO packs were issued with a JAPANESE translation in them too.  The Japanese insert Captain Cook pack is several $100 even today, and the Definitives Japanese insert issue is still ASC cat $3,000 today .... and neither are anywhere near as Glam as this one, indeed both are little B5 sized folders.  Full details on those here - tinyurl.com/glenoct17

Anyway ... be a long time until you see this one again, so if you THINK you have a full set of PO issued Albums, well
you do NOT unless this one is added to the bookshelf!  (Order as stock code 451WF)

 

   A bargain at just $A275 plus shipping.

 

 

The Engraved Stamps Of The Commonwealth Of
Australia - price *Reduced* $A200 this month!

 

 

The quite magnificent official Australia Post produced coffee table book.  Compiled by Richard Breckon, the respected PO Archivist, and the PO Art Team.  Brass cornered, beautifully gold deeply embossed leatherette cover, gilt edged outer leaf edges, with matching marbled heavy slipcase.  Issued in a VERY limited Edition for “Australia 99”.   I am advised only a few 100 copies were ever made, and were a near instant sell-out, even at the very high issue price.  Three similar later books were issued - “Royalty”, 32 Die Proofs (Stock 428YR)  Blue book “Federation”, 30 Die Proofs (Stock 428YU) and Green Book ”Transportation”, 32 Die Proofs (Stock 428YX) were also sold in even lower numbers -  $A495 EACH book.  Being quite recent, they almost NEVER come on the market - no-one wants to let them go!  HEAPS more pix here -  tinyurl.com/StampEngr

Semi opaque interleaved pages with designs printed on them.  On real heavyweight grade archival weight paper.  Varnished glazed paper for effect in parts. The photos here really do not begin to convey the lavishness and class of this book.  My guess is the book and slipcase cost well over $100 to make - 20 years back.  Shows masses of issued designs and superlative background info.  A4, similar in size to a Leather PO Year Book.  Also contains 28 different Official correct size recess printed, Intaglio DIE PROOFS in black from the original steel Master Dies.  From 1913 1d Engraved KGV, to 1965 Anzac.  Inc most early commems - like Harbour Bridge, Jubilee, Canberra, Hermes, Sturt, SesquiCentenary etc.  Also high value Definitives like the £1 Robes and Arms, 7/6d Cook &c.  All this at around $10 an official Die Proof, in a superb album!  And NONE obtainable any other way than via this book.

The Die Proofs sold separately would realise DOUBLE what the entire book is selling for here.  The KGV 1d Engraved, or £1 Robes could very easily bring $50 to $100 each on their own if sold separately as official PO issued Steel Die Proofs. 
ALL of these are now fully listed and pieced in the Brusden White ACSC catalogue - Cat $700 as loose proofs alone!  A magnificent book for ANY collector to own.  Words cannot describe the lavish production and contents and luxury "feel" .... EVERY person - dealer or collector - who has seen it here on the office desk picked it up, and said "WOW"!  Gary Watson's Prestige Philately got $437 for a book in a Public Auction.  They called them "without doubt the BEST product released by Australia Post in recent decades”.  Just bought 3 in an estate, and have reduced the price of last two by $200, from $495 to just $295 each!  Buy yourself a classy GIFT you'll always love handling and looking at: $A295 (Stock 428YT)

 

 

 

Australia Post, 2000 Olympics, Gold Medal Winners

Deluxe Album Set reduced $A40!  HALF retail!

 

45c - Ian Thorpe- winning the Men's Swimming 400m Freestyle

 

 

 
 
 

Australian athletes won 16 Gold Medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.  Australia issued a special decorative sheetlet of 10 stamps for EVERY medal winner.  In a world first, these stamps were on sale nationally the day AFTER each medal win!  See my three different front page 'Linn's Stamp News' stories on this remarkable world first – www.tinyurl.com/OlyStamp

Australia Post rushed out this special album, with all 16 Gold Medal Winner sheets inside, perfectly housed on #1 size Hagner sheets.  A LOT of dealers and collectors overlooked this official issue, as it did not receive much publicity at all.  As "Olympics" is a major thematic/topical worldwide, this will always be a key item. And it is of course an 100% OFFICIAL Australia Post Album.

The FACE value of the stamps inside alone was
$A72 and retail of them is $A125 the set 16, and the album and Hagner sheets cost much extra. (Hagner sheets are $1.75 EACH retail.)  I bought a bunch of these as I had a hunch they'd be overlooked.

The 16 Hagners and Deluxe Album retail $50, so you get $125 retail of MUH Sheets 10 inside - making it $175 retail.  UNDER HALF Retail to clear - $A85 (Stock 563LX) (Or the 16 x MUH Mini Sheets, with no album etc - Under FACE at $A70! (Stock 563LY)

Cost for the whole deal illustrated above is just $A85  - reduced down from $A125!

Same offer for 2004 Athens Olympics - very similar set of 17 x $5 Gold Medal Winner Sheetlets of 10, on Hagners, Face $A85 in special album for $A100 (Stock 563LW) or the 17 MUH $5 sheetlets of 10, for $A90 (Stock 563LX)

Full Classy Red Album of MUH Sheets 10, 2008 Beijing Olympics (Cost $99 ex PO!) for $A95 (Stock Code 563LZ)

Search this site

 

Search all my 300+ web pages! Simply type in what you are looking for. "Penny Black", "Latvia", "Imprints", "Morocco", "Fungi" "Year Books", etc! 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.

 

REMEMBER - WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS WHAT YOU PAY!

Most 4 figure items like these on this page only appear at Public Stamp Auction.  You THEN need to pay 15-20% extra on top of the hammer price - for the nasty, nasty "Buyer Commission".  As well the associated GST taxes then added to that commission, and then GST added on the postage and handling and insurance etc.  AND then often another 3% on top of all that, to use a credit card like Amex or Diners!  So your invoice can often be 25%-30% MORE than you bid, if you pay by cards.

These commissions pay for the MASSIVE overhead of the auctions. Their dozen or so staff, Director Fees, fancy rented buildings, Deluxe catalogues, and $2,000 a page full colour ads in magazines all around the globe etc.  I have none of this overhead.  I work on my own - from home.  No rent, no staff, no fancy catalogues or $2000 ads. Just fast turnover and low prices, and a “done on the CHEAP” old-school website as you can see!

All prices on this page are nett - NO extra taxes or commissions are added to the price.  KNOW in advance what you are up for!  And I NEVER charge buyers extra for using their credit cards.  NEVER.  That is absurd, insulting, and pure gouging, but the world’s leading auction houses seem to all hate Amex cards, as you will doubtless realise. Use them FEE FREE for my offers.

In my near 40 years full time selling stamps, I have hardly auctioned one stamp.  I do not believe in it.  My huge website, due to clever links and marketing, gets far more visitors than most large local auctions, and always has.  Coming up to FORTY MILLION visitors is living testament to that.  I am pleased to sell direct - at fair sensible prices, so you know EXACTLY where you stand. You buy direct off me, and YOU the customer get the savings.

And as many of my clients are overseas, remember EVERY price here is in AUSTRALIAN dollars.  Go check how cheap these "Pacific Peso" prices really are on: www.xe.com  And most importantly, the way I ship, you generally avoid the nasty UK 20% VAT - and the similar European and NZ and Canada import and GST taxes etc.

As with ALL my sales, payment is tailored to suit YOU.  If you see something for $A1,000 that will mean a divorce case if you buy it outright, I am happy to do a “Lay-By” or layaway.  I can debit your credit card 4 debits of $A250 or whatever suits. There is NO price penalty whatever for you to use this system - even if you use credit cards. Just let me know what suits. 
Happy reading!  Glen
