Luis, perhaps you might get a better response if you introduced yourself in the "ROLL CALL" topic so that the members who read these posts from time to time might know who you are and what you are collecting.
.
Also, keep in mind that most of us are accumulators ourselves with an interest in specialization of some kind.

I don't usually do this but try here ....

http://stamp-collector.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_13_339

There is over 1,500 varieties on site and even if it is not on the site (for example I haven't put many of my Welsh stamps up yet .. just tell me what you are looking for and I will do my best for you.

Might as well go whole hog.
Compare my prices with
http://hampsteadcastle.co.uk/
or
Denis Stevens - not sure of his URL but you will find it if you google it.

Hi Luis

What you don't state is Mint Or Cancelled, as I have a lot of both, but you need to be precise in what you are after.

Hi,
I can probably sort you out with a few Kgs of on paper kiloware.
I don't have much in the way of regionals though. Pretty much everything else though.
How much are you looking for?

Yes Luis - Melvyn makes a good point - for example I don't sell kiloware - every other combination you can think of but not kiloware so Anthony may be a good source if this is what you are looking for.

I also major on Mint Never Hinged .. I can supply individual used issues - I just don't have a big market for it - strangely it just doesn't seem to sell even though I know of several members of this forum collect nothing else.

It may be that used collectors prefer to sort through kiloware rather than purchase individual stamps as in some cases it is the "thrill of the chase".

Hello,

I want USED machins but i need to explain that i want lots of regionals machins, from 50p. until the final, security, large size, non value indicated, etc... The quantity isn´t important but more or less 1 kgs. Other thing that I need to clarify is that I only can pay in euros sending a letter.
Anthony tell me prices.

Thank you

Don't you ever go on holiday Anthony .. or are you a stay "in the UK" man? If so couldn't give me a recommendation for a good place to go in June could you?

This seems to be a "want" that would be pretty easily satisfied on ebay, unless some more specifications are going to emerge as time goes on. No problem paying with euros there, they will convert cowrie shells if pressed.

Yes Charlie that's what I wanted to do - mrs has now decided she doesn't want to fly this year - so looks like Devon or somewhere similar. Me - I just want a break - I would prefer guaranteed sunshine - but if I go to Devon/Cornwall I am at least guaranteed no nagging.

Luis,
Do you have a problem reaching ebay on your internet? I see many lots of used machins offered, so it is a question of waiting for the ones that sound good. If the version in Spain does not have anything satisfactory listed, go to the UK site http://www.ebay.co.uk/ Many people in UK will post to Europe (more than will send them to the Americas)

Other posters at various places on the forum here have been pointing out the very inexpensive lots that come up from time to time.

Derek

Dave, If where to go on holiday is the only cause of friction and source of nagging, many people would say that you are a lucky man!

Hello,
Thank you Derek, i dont thought to search in the UK ebay, you´re right there are lots that can be send to Spain. But almost everybody want PAYPAL.
Thanks, i´m going to continue searching.

I have been using eBay for almost 12 years now and have about 500 registered sales there. In that time I have used Paypal once that I can recall.
However when I see a lot I am interested in I send a note to the seller asking if they can handle US Dollars.
.
For under about $30 I prefer to use cash.
Above that I use a certified bank check.
.
I never bid on lots in certain countries where the mail fails to reach the addressee intact almost 100% of the time.
Over the years I have used the mail for purchases through other sources at least an additional 500 times.
I lost one payment of $10.00 that was rifled in the West Palm Beach post office the morning after it was deposited into the system. My report led to an undercover investigation, discovery, firings and charges.
.
I do not have a Paypal account and do not want one. Nor am I interested in having them know what I spend and when. I dislike eBay's attempts to force people into using Paypal. In fact "dislike" only scratches the surface.
Within the confines of the USA our currency must be accepted for all bills, public and private. That is public law.
.
So Luis, all you have to do is take a few moments before bidding and ask if the seller can handle cash in whatever currency you are using, Euros, for instance. Then, if they agree, go ahead and bid. If they do not agree, or fail to respond, draw a black line through their name in your note book and look for a more cooperative seller.
.
About the only problem I have beyond not bidding on lots of a seller who cannot deal with US dollars is getting the actual street address. eBay intentionally omits providing that in the regular info sheet. I feel that I should know exactly who I am dealing with.
.

If I sell something I'd want it in my own currency. Of course I 'could' use it as I travel to Germany often and I have relatives in France but the onus is on the buyer to take a hit on exchange charges. Just my preference unfortunately and we are talking about UK items here.

For somewhere to go in June I can recommend Padstow or pretty much anywhere in Devon or Cornwall.

That's perfectly reasonable.
Until the last five years or so, I never had much of a problem using greenback dollars anywhere, but recently several of the people I have dealt with indicate some stiff bank exchange charges.
So I started to limit my purchases except for something unusual to the USA and Canada.
And I am saving my accumulated wealth in a safe currency;
