I'd like to thank Allan Brink for his fascinating report on stamp-hunting in Jordan.

This article was interesting enough to inspire me to contact Jordan Post and just as Allan had predicted, the service from the Jordan Post Philatelic Section has been excellent: very helpful and very responsive. I am now waiting for my first order of Jordan Stamps to arrive, following confirmation that my transfer of funds has got through to Jordan Post.

One motivating factor in looking to collect Jordan stamps is how affordable they are: the most expensive yearly collection is £25.00 for 13 sets issued. But 2009 is exceptional, with the norm being around 6-9 issues a year, at around £12-16 for the complete annual issues. Just think, a whole year's stamps at a price that is roughly the cost of the new GB Dr Who Prestige Book!

I'm also intrigued by the novel "Miniature Sheets" which resemble super-size stamps (imperforate commemorative labels) the like of which I haven't seen before.

So it's goodbye GB Post & Go, arriverderci San Marino and hello Jordan Post!

Sounds good, SA! Hope you'll be able to post some of those stamps here when they arrive. We don't get to see Jordan stamps too often.

It's rather different, but Allan has a feature on the first issue of Belgium (the 'Epaulettes' in the May issue.

The recent year packs from Jordan may be affordabale, but the 1964 set of three birds has a SG value of GBP150. One of the stamps is an Ornate Hawk Eagle..if you see one anywhere let me know. smiley
