Thread: SG numbers required for Chilean stamps.
20/11/2019 17:33:12

Thanks Brian, that will do at this stage. I have a copy of S.G. part 20 but seem to have mislaid it at the moment.

Could anyone help with S.G. numbers for these three 1970 Chilean stamps?

Hi Alex

Just had a look on and I found an issue of January 1865 which shows there was a 12c blue/rose stamp.

Stampworld don't give any equivalent catalogue numbers but this might give you a lead.

Picture taken by a friend while on holiday on the Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire border.

Anyone know what this might be about?

A quick scan on ebay uk shows several sets of used sets of the stamp area you are interested in.

It's a bit difficult obviously to tell the quality from the scans but from the prices shown it would pay you to buy the set rather than look for individual stamps.

When I get chance I will have a look through my G.B. spares.

Hi Carmen

Don't know if you are just looking at current issuing countries or past ones?

If you are interested in past ones try

It might put you off but I certainly found it of interest.



Thread: Could there be a reversed multiple crown watermark ???
22/06/2019 20:03:51

Can you show the watermark? I know these are difficult to see at times and probably very difficult to show on a scan.

22/06/2019 19:26:08

Probably a silly question but how could you tell if the watermark was reversed?

The multiple crown watermark is just the crowns and nothing else to distinguish which way round it is.

Thread: Perforation error on the 22p Flame red
22/06/2019 19:12:09

Hi Fred

Had a look on a well known online auction site. There were several mis-perforated machins for sale but I couldn't see the 22p red.

Maybe you have found one of a very few example. Some of the stamp were making a bit but not large sums.

Might be of interest to put it on there and see what it makes.

Hi Kim

Just looked in SG Great Britain concise catalogue and only info is date of issue 1969.

Thread: "Via Andes" on Chilean cover.
01/04/2019 15:32:10

Thanks Alex.

That makes sense, what confused me at first is that Valparaiso is on the coast so why go over the Andes? But it's a long trip across the Pacific then across Asia and Europe.


26/03/2019 16:05:31

Can anyone explain what "Via Andes" refers to on this Chilean cover.

I know the Andes are a range of mountains in South America but can't see the significance of this on the cover.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One of my other interests is football. The postmark doesn't give the name of the club. I assume it's Notts County who were formed in 1862.

Thread: Stamp cancellation by pen
07/09/2018 15:15:02

I don't know about a pen cancellation, that looks more like a paint brush job.

Thread: Is this SG35a?
07/09/2018 15:11:50


Is the plate number shown on the stamp?

Thread: Help and Advice
14/08/2018 19:07:32

I agree with Paul on this one, treat with care. They seem to come from the Ukraine.

Not anyone I have heard of before.

On the website it is difficult to get any real contact details.

I would put in a couple of low bids and see what happens.

If you do go ahead please let us have some feedback. Could be an interesting new site.

Thread: Stamp cancellation by pen
03/08/2018 15:42:19

Hi and welcome to the forum.

This subject has been aired on this forum and many other websites numerous times.

Many collectors, myself included, have contacted Royal mail requesting the use of date stamps in preference to a biro or felt tipped cancellation.

If you are lucky enough to get a reply it will probably be along the lines of " the stamp has to be canceled so it cannot be reused."

We don't mind the stamp being canceled with a proper cancellation but to be defaced to me is just laziness.

However there are some in the hobby who now consider this type of cancellation to be part of postal history.
