    Mate, TBH, I doubt they are even worth the postage.

    I buy and sell coins and notes ... the stamps are also in the Auctions.

    They are ALWAYS last and create little interest.


    Think about it. Who actually uses letters any more?

    The email killed the Letter and, in the process, postage stamps.


    There is no 'next generation' to buy the stamps from you as they won't be using them.

    Almost all the mail sent today is by Governments, Utilities, Banks etc and they 'frank' their post,
    they don't use stamps.


    Coins will go the same way, but might take a few years and notes a decade or two ... 'pay-wave' and all that.

    AVOID

    Our fingerprints never fade from the lives we touch

    Have any of the same vintage that aren't postage stamped, CCC? Brings a distinctively higher and significant value. Chulalongkorn philatelic related are much more valuable than Rama 6-era.

    Outside of the high novelty and inessential display here - guaranteed that anyone here [or any other like venue] has interest or knowledge.

    Your best bet - numerous Thai collectible/auction sites that specifically deal in vintage Siamese items. You might be surprised as to the circle that's available.

    One doesn't buy 100 year old stamps to use, David. One buys them because one collects them. Collectors buy them for various reasons, even just "to collect" because they like stamps and collecting stamps is their hobby.

    I'm sure you knew that so I'd like to ask you what you really meant by your post.

    Now, now, Chico. I'm sure David has a perfectly reasonable and logical explanation for his post.

    Please do not resurrect the "DenseDave" name-calling until after he has clarified his post.

    ^ Who's got the keys for Nev tonight?


    Thanks Jeff, I feel suitable chastised. And I do apologise if somehow my post has outraged your sensibilities.




    To the stamp collectors who also condemn my offering of advice, I also apologise.

    I obviously know nothing. Know nothing about buying and selling ... never done it in my life.

    There is a coin and stamp auction on in 2 days time ... I'll report back here with the result.

    Let me go bake that humble pie so there is a extra big slice for me to eat.

    ---

    But humour me for a moment ... let's discuss investing because CCC is potentially 'investing' as opposed to 'buying'
    simply so that he can kick back in 2 decades time, in his chequed slippers with his pipe flicking through his stamp albumn
    stunned by his astute purchase and how, in 20 years he can imagine the windfall that awaits when he goes to sell his stamps.

    When I was a freckled faced kid @ School, I used to earn a little coin helping a milkman on a Friday night doing his double
    delivery because he didn't work on a Sunday. We started with the local Bakery and finished @ the Newsagency.

    Well, no milk runs anymore. Bakeries have changed significantly to cater for a different world and I haven't bought a
    newspaper for the best part of a decade, save a long haul flight when I'd grab a copy of the FT/AFR.

    Times change. Postage Stamps are so decades ago. There is little/limited future as an investment.

    It's sort of like buying a sports car when you are 65 to relive your youth. That hair ain't coming back and
    you ain't going to pull.

    ---

    When I buy something as an investment I always consider the market for resale, the market in which you sell into.

    Look @ Classic Cars ... that market is growing and will remain strong for decades to come.
    See ... http://teakdoor.com/motoring-in-thai...-id-known.html (If only i'd known.)

    However, even that market will die when electric cars and driverless cars are the norm and our octane roots are
    diminished/lost because that next generation really isn't interested in Muscle Cars.

    Damm ... I saw and heard a Mr Whippy van yesterday ... what memories of my youth.
    He didn't sell a single cone (in the time I saw him).

    ---

    There, of course retros ... LP's are good example. They died with the cassette tape and buried by the CD but are
    enjoying a temporary comeback. It will last a couple of years and then die a death.

    ---

    Stamps ... nah ... Never-Na

    IMHO

    That's a long post just to state your opinion that because stamps are rarely used these days, there is little or limited future as an investment. You may be right. You may be wrong. Time will tell. But as an example, I can't remember the last time I used a dinosaur skeleton or took a dinosaur for a walk, but a dinosaur skeleton fetched 2 million Euros recently at auction. And dinosaurs are soooo Jurassic period.


    Anyway, this 1910 2d Tyrian Plum stamp sold by Warwick and Warwick in October 2012 realised 48,300 including the buyers' premium.



    But why focus on the money? Just enjoy the stamps.

    I used to "collect" those...back in another lifetime.

    "Mr. Natural"



    The six "stamp" night was memorable...or so I was told. When I made it back to reality there was a half gallon of Jack Daniels, an ounce of Colombian Gold and a shoe missing. WTF happened? I don't know...

    There's a market for all antiqueties so long if they're rare and a much better investment than leaving cash in the bank.

    It's all about having ones finger on the pulse.
    Cars
    Vinyl
    Porcelain
    Books
    Toys
    Art etc

    All requires an interest,knowledge and time, then money can be made.

    More interesting and less common than stocksnshares/bricksnmortar.

    Incoming red for complaining about a red outside of the repo crying thread, and for being dense.

    I don't know which mod or sock puppet used the Nev account this morning, David. I'll look into it for you, my friend.
