Thread: Covers

If you find a site called postbeeld and enter royal wedding or similar you should find a long list of countries that issued stamps to commemorate the wedding.

I would assume they all issued first day covers.

Is the one you show French?

Looks like stamp A has been in the sun too long. Faded.

Thread: Chile postal stationery
06/04/2020 10:23:02

This is a Chilean prestamped envelope from the 1907-1910 series.

Postmarked 14th April 1911 but no address.

Is this the equivalent of CTO (cancelled to order) for stamps?

Otherwise why would they postmark a blank envelope?

I don't consider perfins as "damaged stamps".

I and a lot of other people have collections of these stamps and consider them a valid part of our collections.

Agreed not a lot of value in them but an interesting field for study.

Hi Paul

Thanks for the lead. I ordered a box of "medium" corners,20mm wide from Herma.

Just the job, a lot easier to handle than ordinary photo corners but without hiding any of the cover.

Again thanks for the help.

Thread: Displaying covers.
09/02/2020 16:37:19

I have a collection of First Day Covers which I keep in albums made for the job.

I am now collecting "postal history" and would like to "write up" the covers.

Would any members please advise on their way of attaching covers to sheets of paper.

I have had a go with a few clear photo corners but I could only find very small ones.

Not being the most dexterous person with my fingers I am struggling.

Could anyone suggest and alternative method or the name of a supplier of larger corner mounts?

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.
