I am a pretty avid facebook user- but personally I would rather keep discussions on the forum than split them between here and facebook.
(There isn't so much stamp discussion on the discworld stamp forum anymore, so that's a bit diffeent).

I have been on very strong pain killers that have effected my memory for the last 3-4 years and during this time have duplicated orders galore, even buying sports and limited edition FDCs etc. from eBay when I already owned them. Fortunately I did keep copies of all orders and emails but never thought of referring to them except once. I thought I was suffering from dementia and told my GP and was so relieved to discover I certainly was not and he explained my memory loss.
 
I just can't be bothered sending in all the spare stamps I have for the trading stamps. I have done in the past and only used 1 sheet. I still have the other sheets. In the past I would make up year packs for new collectors and send them FOC.
 
I will be sorting through the collections and also will open up the LBEs to see what I have in them. I have never sold anything on eBay despite having a Seller's account.
  
Anything special that is duplicated I would offer on here first if that's OK.

 

If anyone has any surplus or duplicate stamps from the early years of the Discworld stamps they would like to dispose of (up to 2009) please message me. 

Now that their value has reduced to an all-time low it must be time to fill in the gaps in my collection.

Cheers

Prices may go up and down but I'd like to think the early stamps will always be highly-valued as Terry was most involved in those.


Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

I have just been though all the Discworld stamp sales and such, and can say that the early issues are not only holding their own pricewise, but many are being snapped up for ever increasing prices. Many are up by 25-50% on early 2017 values.
If any have fallen in value it is those from the last five years. I have noticed some of those sheets selling for less than retail.

Colin make the point that those original Discworld stamps produced while Terry was alive will become the most collectable and of those I guess the first set given away with the Waterstones 'Going Postal' promotional cover (and reproduced inside the cover of the first edition) will be the most collectable.  

The author's contribution make all the difference, perhaps why the more recent issues are less attractive?

These years on I am still trying to get my hands on one of each of the 'rat-nibbled' issues, perforated by Terry himself at the Bath Postal Museum.
