Ryukyu Islands
Buying List

Go Back to: [Ryukyu (Selling) Page] [Main Page/Country Index] [Discounts] [Layaway Plans] [Terms/Ordering Information]

This is a Buying List. If you are interested in purchasing Ryukyu Islands material please go to my Ryukyu (Selling) Page.

The below prices are for Mint, Never Hinged, stamps that are free of all defects. Prices are for stamps that are centered Very Fine (VF). This term can be found defined in the Scott Catalogue. In some cases, I have noted a buying price for Fine to Very Fine (F-VF) stamps. All stamps in a set must be centered Very Fine or better to support the VF buying price. Stamps with defects are not purchased. Souvenir Sheets must be free of creases, wrinkles and all faults.

Do not send material until we have discussed the transaction by email. No agreement is reached until we have come to a subsequent written or email agreement. In many cases I purchase in quantity but I reserve the right to limit quantities and offer slightly different buying prices where quantity of a set exceeds five (5) sets.

All prices are in whole dollars, the cents have been rounded off (eg 10 = $10.00 US). Catalogue numbers are Scott Catalogue numbers.
