  • Is the cost of becoming a stamp collector too high for the kids of today?

    Keijo
    27 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    A while back SCF discussions had a statement that stopped me. “The thing is, it took weeks of researching how to collect to even discover Steiner’s pages. And I still had to invest $100 into a Scott catalogue, $100 into mounts (I refuse to use hinges), and then the cost of the stamps. The barrier of entry to the hobby was just so high that I can’t imagine kids these days being willing to go down the route of building albums.“. I acknowledge the author had written the statement from ‘adult american perspective’, but is it genuinely so? When I entered in the…
  • Puzzled by size difference in pair of 1906 Liberian OS (Official) stamps

    Keijo
    5 Jul 2015 | 4:12 am
    Recently I’ve been working with backlog of African stamps, and there I’ve found few stamps that have made me puzzled. For recent stamps I can understand the lacking and contradicting catalog information, but with items of 100 years of age not so much. Surely somebody else must have noticed the same differences that I’m seeing; so why isn’t there anything in the catalog pages. Let’s take a look for the brain-buzzler of the day: a pair of Liberian OS (official) stamps from the 1906 series. Based on catalog information these stamps should be easy. The second…
  • Men who changed stamp design forever

    Dynamic duo, designer Koloman Moser and engraver Ferdinand Schirnböck revolutionized stamp design in the early 20th century. One of their most recognizable works is the 1906/1912 pictorial landscapes series for the Condominium of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These stamps are big, bold and beautiful in every sense (and of course there are forgeries involved as well). The original stamps are sharply recessed by Wien Staatsdruckerei (Vienna State Printing Office) with line perforation of approx. 12½. Just like with the Austrian stamps of the time, the stamps were printed and perforated wet, and…
  • From British Southeast Asia to Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia

    One of those reasons that I love stamp collecting is the fact that it teaches me historical and geographical tidbits time and again. When I started working up with the stamps and history Malayan peninsula way back in late April, little did I know that I’d be spending the following month digging in deeper and deeper with the topic. The story of how British Southeast Asia evolved into Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia is a story full of historical twists and complexity that easily rivals with what many associate with history of Germany or Indian states.  So get yourself a cup of your…

I wish somebody would have told me these when I started years back. Things you can’t write about (but still want to)… Though this blog is entirely about my collection and my views on stamp collecting, there’s a range of sensitive topics I avoid writing about. A good example are the stamps of the Third Reich, especially those featuring Swastikas or Hitler’s head. I can almost…
