    Having grown up in the world of numismatics and philately I was probably in a rarified group in the audience by knowing just what a Mauritius was. It doesn't matter if you don't know anything though, because the playwright, Theresa Rebeck , gets the audience where it needs to be in short order.

  • SCB turns six – a new look and some new features

    As uncanny as it, SCB is now officially six years old. To celebrate the anniversary, it’s now time to unwrap some of the changes that I’ve been working. The most striking change is likely the new look. It starts with crimson color on the header, but there are countless smaller changes throughout the blog. The goal of these changes is to increase the readability of the blog, and make it even more mobile friendly than the before. There’s simpler and leaner markup on the back, and thus the content should load even faster than before. Another big change is the homepage content…
  • Common but generally unrecognized varieties on Polish definitive stamps

    Keijo
    14 Jan 2015 | 6:19 am
    This year Poland is one of my attractions. Though Poland is one of the largest countries in Europe, there doesn’t seem to be as widespread philatelic interest towards its stamps. Possibly the most worrying result of this are the contradicting and lacking details of major variants in general catalogs such as Michel and Scott. Fortunately I’ve got a specialized Polish stamp catalog to rely on, and with this entry I’ll share tidbits about some of the common varieties that are either missing or falsely listed on major general catalogs. On large parts this entry is about…
  • Interesting variety on 1922 Belgian Houyoux / Albert III stamp

    During the holidays I spent couple of days going through a largish pile of Belgian definitive stamps that had been sitting on my table for some months. All in all it seemed there was nothing of greater interest until I spotted an interesting looking variety on 5 cent stamp from the 1922 series generally known as Houyoux-series (after engraver Leon Houyoux). On the left is a normal copy, and on the right is the variety: Especially the left side ornament has been over-inked into somewhat unidentifiable ‘mush': As the specialized Belgian COB catalog doesn’t mention anything specific…
  • Towards 100,000 stamps and other plans for 2015

    1 Jan 2015 | 1:32 am
    One of my goals for 2014 was to reach the limit of 90K stamps, and that I succeeded (though only in the last day of the year). So I’m now heading towards the uncanny 100,000 major number stamps in my collection. Whether or not I’ll actually reach 100K this year remains to be seen, but I’ve set my target to no later than summer 2016. 2014 was supposed to be the year of Asian countries for me, but the ‘stamps gods’ saw otherwise as I stumbled upon a good number of attractive non-Asian lots and collections (some, such as a recent small acquisition of postally used…
