I have found a new stamp collecting website that is just huge. It has
something like 5000 stamps on sale and they have some pretty old and rare
stuff. Decimal and pre-decimal era stamps, marked and unmarked, these guys
have it all. I reccomend you go to this site because good stamp collecting
sites can be incredibly hard to find.

New Australian stamp site. Cheap rare stamps.

What's the big deal? All I could find was a listing of accessories, packets,
year sets, and an invitation to send want lists. Cheap rare stamps? Aside
from being an oxymoron, I saw nothing approaching rare, much less cheap.

What is it with on line companies that insist that potential customer
register? I don't have to register when I walk into a brick and mortar stamp
shop, or most on-line stamp companies for that matter.

"krunchystemp" didn't sign his post. I'm more than a little suspicious that
this is a commercial post. But maybe I'm just getting jaded.

Seven Seas Stamps were around thirty years ago when I was a child in
Australia.  I never considered them to be stamp dealers as I seem to recall
they mostly sold albums and accessories.
I have a 1976 Australian stamp catalogue and it has about 20 full page ads
for Seven Seas although only 2 pages were for stamps.  The rest were for
catalogues, (incl SG), album pages, books, and a magazine that they seem to
have been the publisher for. (Same small town address).
Is this the same company now, or did it fold and someone else buy the name
Seven Seas.
The post seems suspiciously commercial.
As for the stamps, they are all common enough.  The mission mixtures were
pricey and the rest was not cheap by any standard.
