Hi Marcel,

Did you notice that 2 weeks ago on ebay item 6 and 9 goes up to USD.600 plus ? some said this is due to the NEW release SG Cat.price increase on NB stamps, I havenot seen the Cat. yet.

Regards.

Owh really? Did I miss other listings on ebay for the $5 and $10? :(

I haven't seen the new SG catalogue yet, mine is the 2010 edition and is still brand new apart from the North Borneo and Malaya section...:)

Hi Marcel,

Opsss, after relook on my records then found out that it is the other type of Red Cross over print, any way it is still the highest of I ever seen. here is the item no:190448172371 and 220673437220

Regards.

Hi Anthony,

I have checked both items, and you are right, they reached $565 and $676 respectively, but I'll put them in the next list for October & November since they ended in 03 Oct. Surprisingly they can't beat item no: 220673437439, which ended at $898!! This is probably the single most expensive North Borneo stamp auctioned in ebay to date!

Regards,
Marcel.
