Re: Peonies

My set looks the same under UV. I bought them from connie_connie, an eBay seller, last year. Also, I have a few CTO ones and they look the same too. This is a very interesting discovery.

Re: Greetings from Princeton NJ!

Hi Michael, Great to hear your experience! I have also bought some stamps from these three sellers, and I like them too. Appears buyers are willing to pay more for their items. 1kodini23 sold me a cancelled C94M and S61M, and his C94M helped me spot a modified one from a Mainland Chinese seller. yup...

Suspicious eBay sellers from Taiwan

Last time, he tried to sell me a fake imperf C94 set. See my other post in the forum. "bc-empire1" -- sold me a suspicious C94M. I wa...

Re: Greetings from Princeton NJ!

Hi archiem, Thanks for your info! Yes... Roman is definitely right! I have started collecting used/damaged ones for references since I bought a fake J25 which cost me a few hundred dollars. I have a used C94 set. And today, it helps me spot the imperf set that I purchased off eBay is obviously a for...

Re: Greetings from Princeton NJ!

Hi Roman, Thanks again! What should be the fair price in your opinion? I paid $4000 instead of $4500. After reading your comments, I look around and I notice one with similar condition was sold for $3800 in John Bull auction house back in 2016 (Lot: 2216), but that is 2 years ago. https://jbull.com/...

Re: Greetings from Princeton NJ!

Thanks Roman! You are right. Maybe I get it expertized before I re-sell it in the future. BTW, what do you think of the C94 below? https://www.ebay.com/itm/CHINA-MEILAN-FANG-IMPERF-FRESH-MNH-SET-EXTREMELY-RARE-/223021288738?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=%252FtvBKwX...

Re: Greetings from Princeton NJ!

Welcome back! You and I share similar life experience. Ever since I immigrated to the US 20+ years ago as a kid, I stopped collecting. Then I started picking up again 3 years ago and I obtained my CSS membership this year in order to join the auction. For the last 3 years, I have spent a lot of my h...

Re: Just wanted to share my happiness

Hi archiem, Thanks! I started collecting stamps when I was a kid, but I stopped until I re-picked up the hobby 3 years ago. My dad noticed I have spent a lot of my hard-earned money to enhance my collections recently. Each time I obtain a new collection, I would spend a lot of time in learning the h...
