    If I had to to pick and choose one modern specialty area to research and study, then I would likely go with modern Ukrainian definitive stamps. They are beautiful, cheap, plenty (but at the same oh so elusive), and above all loaded with microprinting differences. This article tries to provide a somewhat detailed overview on the topic. Flowers series 2001/2008 The flowers series was issued from 2001 to 2008. It has got 18 different designs, that can be found both without microtext (2001 release) and with microtext containing the year of issue (2002-2006).  Additionally, the stamps of year…

    The latest blog entry by Commonwealth Stamps Opinions is a truly read-worthy and thought provoking piece for anyone collecting modern worldwide stamps. In short, the news is that Stanley Gibbons has significantly increased the number of new issues going to catalog appendix instead of the usual listings, and it seems that a new editorial policy is taking place.  I know some more conservative stamp collectors will rejoice this step against the ever increasing flow of new issues.  But I must say I’m deeply worried by the long term affects of this change, and wonder if the editors…

  • The mystery of Peru 1874/79 Postage due stamps without grills

    Keijo
    6 Mar 2015 | 1:49 am
    As some might know, Peru is the second country in the world besides United States to have used grills (embossed patterns) on their classic stamps. This was simply because the printer of classic Peru stamps was National Banknote Company, which also was the printer of grilled US classic stamps. The grills can be found on number of Peruvian stamps issued between 1874 and 1884. Facts aside, here’s an interesting item that’s got me perplexed. This is the 1879 postage due design but WITHOUT grill. And this is where general catalogs and resources fail to provide unanimous information.
