Hi guys, I came home from an auction this week with loads of album of MNH machins. Hubby and I only collect to SG concise level, but these albums looked so lovely that we spent a fortune on them! Having got them home, and had a good look through, it appears that they were collected by a Deegam lover, as they have codes starting DP, which I believe is Deegam codes. I was simply going to break the entire collection down and sell them all as standard Machins before I realised just what level they go to. I have no idea which level of Deegams they have been collected to, as I don't have Deegam. I am way over my head if I even pretend to understand them. What I wanted to know from you higher levelled experts, is this. Should I take them apart to sell them, should I try to sell them as complete collections, or should I treat them as standard Machins and ignore all of the variations, since I don't fully understand them? It just seems a shame to take apart a beautiful collection that someone has worked hard at, but I will if that is necessary. Hope you don't mind me asking you all, but I'm well over my head. SG shades are scary enough for me-let alone all of this craziness!!!

I can't choose one because my mind cannot contemplate selling them.

You don't say if they are MNH or Used ....

Whichever .... the decision would be easier for the forum to vote if you were to post a few images so that the detail could be seen.

Sight unseen - I would vote for the top one but that may change after seeing a few images.

My question is - if you have no interest in any of the items in the lot and intend to sell in any case - what would your price be for the whole collection?

Sorry, I should have said, they are all MNH. I will take a few photos in a while and add them for you to get a better idea of what is here.

I understand you not contemplating selling them, I'm the same with my collection, but as I only went to concise level, I can't keep them all. I collect used, and my husband collects MNH but they are too advanced for us. I'd rather they were sold and we managed to buy some more MNH that my hubby needs to fill up some of his gaps instead.

I'll post photos dreckly (as we say in Cornwall).

Thanks for the quick replies though.

I look forward to the images Kirsty ... I MAY be interested in purchasing the lot as a whole if the price is right, partly to stop it being broken up.

I may also be able to supply some of your husband's requirements to fill the gaps.

Right, I'm not sure how photobucket works, but if I've got it right, this link will take you to the all of the albums I bought. The 5 titled Specialised Machin stamp albums are the ones I think are based on Deegam, but the one titled Special Machin album may also be, but it doesn't seem as comprehensive to me.

(I think the albums have uploade backwards, so the front on the album is the last photos and the back of the album are the first photos).
All opinions gratefully received.

This is the first page, not sure if it will load as a code or a photo!

Hi Kirsty - Thanks for the images .... Just for clarity (for non-Deegam users) can I just say (although I haven't checked every page yet) these appear to be listed using MBPC* numbering rather than using the Deegam nomenclature.

With Deegam, for example, you would see DG1000.1.1 or similar for the first 1 issue.


*MBPC = Modern British Philatelic Circle ( http://www.mbp-circle.co.uk/ )
