Machin Kiloware is a mass of used postage stamps still stuck on paper and sold to stamp collectors by weight. Some older collectors reading this page may remember a BBC Blue Peter Appeal for used stamps which fueled the kiloware industry for a long time!
On a Tuesday in August there are few things better for a philatelist than sorting through a pile of old used postage stamps. The machin kiloware you buy should appear to be a completely unsorted mixture of postally used stamps which are still stuck to clipped envelope paper. Sometimes mixtures of stamps off paper are offered for sale as machin kiloware but, most collectors would probably agree, this is not the correct use of the term as off paper stamps are more often sold by the number of stamps rather than in kilos!.
Advice on Soaking Stamps Off Machin Kiloware
Some kiloware dealers seperate kiloware in to small, low-value definitives, commemorative and pictorial stamps, higher values and air mails etc. and price these mixtures by the kilo accordingly. However, some kiloware enthusiasts avoid buying these stamp mixtures as, having already been sorted and graded, lucky finds are could be less likely.
