Its a Friday in October and what could be better than spending some time sorting through uk kiloware. Kiloware is the name given to bulk lots of used stamps for sale to collectors by weight. Most uk kiloware comprises of used stamps, clipped from incoming mail and still on the original paper from the envelope. Less frequently, some stamp outlets offer kiloware that has already been soaked off any backing paper. Off paper stamp mixtures are usually more expensive as buyers get many more stamps supplied for a given weight.
Advice on Soaking Stamps Off UK Kiloware
When sorting on or off paper stamp mixtures and Kiloware you can often find apparently unused stamps or stamps that have not been cancelled as they passed through the commercial mail system. It is important to know that it is a criminal offence in many countries - including the UK - to re-use a postage stamp that you know has already passed through the mail system. It is not unknown for some unscrupulous people to try using cleaning agents or chemicals to remove postmarks or try other deceptive methods to make a stamp appear unused. For this reason we strongly advise readers not to buy unused stamps that do not have gum on the back (or the original waxed backing paper if they are self-adhesive stamps). Obviously any genuinely mint, unused stamps you find with original gum or backing paper while sorting Kiloware and charity stamps can legitimately be used for mail.
