  • A Quick Review of Michel Russia Specialized Catalog

    Keijo
    23 May 2015 | 1:25 am
    During my latest business trip to Helsinki, capital of Finland, I had a day off between the meetings, so I headed to local library. Though most of the philatelic books were something I’ve got copies on my bookshelf, there was one particular item that I had never seen, namely Michel’s specialized Russia catalog Michel Rußland /Russland Spezial. So here’s a quick look / review of the catalog. For starters, this is an extra-ordinarily thin volume for a Michel, only about 400 pages. It is explained by the fact that the title covers only stamps of classic Russia, civil war era…

    Keijo
    9 May 2015 | 7:12 am
    Lately I’ve been doing some Singapore stamps, and the various reprints of it’s definitive series have caught my radar. They seem like an daunting area where general stamp catalogs provide very little details. Take for example the 1994/97 Marine life definitive series. Based on catalog details the low face value stamps were printed in 1994 by Leigh-Mardon using offset-litho. In 1996/97 the stamps were reprinted by Jon Enschede using photogravure. All the stamps (including the reprints) have same perforation 13×13½. In Michel these stamps share the shame major number;…
  • The real value of Elvis and other celebs on stamps – what pop culture on postage stamps has left us with?

    Keijo

    Today’s the 175th anniversary of Penny Black and the postage stamp, but instead of talking about ‘the Queen’, I thought I’d write about the ‘the King’ and his companions. For us stamp collectors any reference to ‘the King’ often times means King George V, one of the greatest stamp collectors of all times, but for rest of the world the King usually equals Elvis.  So what do You think King George V (or for that matter Queen Victoria) would have said if he was displayed the stamps of today featuring Elvis and other pop culture characters? Would he…
  • Cancellation forgeries on Finnish stamps

    Keijo
    22 Apr 2015 | 11:01 pm
    Possibly the most dangerous forgery type involves fake postmarks. With them you’ve got 100% legit stamp, but the postmark on top of it is either complete fake or fraudulently used genuine canceller. Many of you readers may know that for example the German inflation era stamps are a minefield for cancellation forgeries, but how many of you did know that the same applies for classical stamps of independent Finland as well? In short, the issue affects stamps that are somewhat plenty as mint, but less common (and in few occasions extremely rare) as fine used. The usual suspects include (but are…
  • Color variations on Zambian 3 ngwee National Dancing Troupe stamps

    Keijo

    Lately I’ve been working my way through a largish bulk lot of Zambian definitive stamps that I got last year. In case you’re wondering why a worldwide collector like me purchases bulk lots containing possibly hundreds of copies of the same stamps, the reason is two fold. First, it’s because of quality. The more exotic the country, the harder it is to find specimens that are in desirable condition. The 3ngwee National Dancing Troupe stamp is a prime example of this. It’s somewhat common stamp found on number of worldwide stamp collections, but coming up with a specimen…
