Ireland

1979 Birds

Wren, Grebe, Goose and Falcon
Price: £0.65 for the set of four, mint

1989 Game Birds

Grouse, Lapwing, Woodcock and Pheasant
Price: £1.65 for the set of four, mint

1997, 2001 and 2002 Birds

The following three sets can be a little confusing because the same picture was issued for many of the birds before Ireland changed to the euro, after the change, and during the transition. The transition stamps have the face value in both currencies, while the post-euro stamps show c for cents.

If all you want is a picture of the bird, it makes sense to go for the cheapest version of that particular bird. However... some these were also issued in different sizes, a smaller version, and a larger version which was self-adhesive. Generally the larger, self-adhesive version is a little more expensive, and you may think it worthwhile to pay a bit more to get a bigger picture.

Illustrations of most of the birds are shown here. I have 30p Blackbirds, large 30p Goldcrests, and 41c Chaffinches coming out of my ears, which is why their price is low.
The postmarks for most of these are very good. There is a price variation (acc to pm) where the pm is of variable quality.

Libya

1982 Birds

This set of 16 stamps includes an Oriole, Flamingo, Dove, Barn owl and Hoopoe. The set was printed to form a composite picture. SG only mentions blocks of four forming a picture, but in fact the birds are set in a landscape which you can only see properly with the whole set - see scan.

Sending the complete unfolded set by mail pushes up the cost of postage because of its size (the sheet measures 14cm by 21cm). It is cheaper to send if it is folded along the perfs in the middle. If you are paying for the actual cost of the postage, I am easy on how it is sent, and the extra packaging comes free, just let me know.

Complete set of 16 stamps, joined to form a sheet and composite picture, £4.50 mint

Would you like to buy some stamps?

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
