Thread: Is my sg8 the rare plate 107?
19/05/2020 16:21:19


depending on which Plate number it eventually is, it might be one with missing imprimatur lettering. Have a look at

**LINK** which shows a lot of the missing imps. But I don't thinks it's Plate 107

Good luck

Thread: Free Machin Album to download
19/12/2018 10:41:17

This is a great resource for any GB collector as it not only has Machin pages but EDVIII, GVI and pre-decimal QEII Definitives plus other countries such as Japan and India. Worth taking a look to see if your interest is catered for.

Always good to store spares on if you don't want to use an album.

Thread: Is this SG35a?
04/09/2018 08:52:08

Hi all

As a keen collector, but by no means an expert, I was hoping someone out there can confirm if my assumptions are correct. I believe this stamp is SG35a - Deep blue QV2d with lines (thin). Large Crown watermark, Imperf.

Whilst 3 margins are cut off the right hand margin definitely shows the left side of the next stamp, thus making this an imperf stamp rather than one with its perforations cut off. Also looks like Alphabet III.

Can the experts out there confirm or correct me pleasesg35a.jpg?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi. I''ve just found these 2 Machins in my collection but can''t find the flaws in my GB pt 4. However mine is 1981 issue. Can anyone shed light please? They are both 1p crimson. One has a white flaw across queens neck, like a choker and the other has a scratch through the stamp from bottom of hair, passed end if eye and tbrough front of dress.

No one out there expert in Malta Stamps then?

Who should I turn to now? the Malta Study Circle or Stanley Gibbons?

Hi all. I was going through my Malta collection today and noticed that the colour of the value tablets were different. Can anyone tell me if this is fading or possibly a 'missing blue'. Can't find a reference in any book that I have.

Thread: Ed VII variety
12/11/2013 22:43:22

Hi all

I came across this in my attempt a sorting out GB, but can't seem to find a reference for it in SG. Is this a known variety?

It is Green 1/2d Ed VII overprinted Army Official but the O seems to be a C

Sorry the picture quality isn't great but I think you can still make it out ok.

Any info anybody can give me will be greatly appreciated.

I also found this Venetian Red penny which seems to have a split in the NE letter frame - top left corner of frame:

It also has a white dot to the left of 'E' in Postage and above the 'E' in the first RH scallop of the top framework. Hope you can see all that

Many thanks for any assistance and info

Following on from my post of a couple of months ago i can finally now upload a photo.

Is this a No Cross? Or does the 'splodge' count?

Thanks for all your input. Shame, but it does make sense that the ink has run. Thought I had found a little gem.....nevermind, keep looking I guess.

Have a great weekend all

Hi Billy

Sorry, tried to upload from my phone but was taking too long.

I now attach a photo of the pink one, next to a 'normal' 1d red.....and sorry again but it is GV stamp.

If it is washed out does that mean that it got wet and the colour has run?

The 'pink' one also has an inverted watermark

Hi all. I found this penny red in my collection but it looks like its on pink paper. Is there such a stamp?
Thread: 1965 Churchill
10/04/2013 20:59:24

Thanks guys for all your input. So I guess none of you have seen a Churchill like this before?

Adrian, thanks for all your info. I do have a couple of other 3d's but they don't look like they have phosphur on and also look like the Timson version anyway, otherwise I would have experimented to see if hot water gave the above effect.

Thanks again all


08/04/2013 20:21:16

Hi guys

thanks for all the info. I didn't know it could be so detailed....

I will try and attach the stamp in question but the house lights /flash ave reacted with the phosphur and does not give a good picture. Hope its good enough for an opinion though.

Thanks againChurchill 65.jpg

Hi All

I'm new to this forum and fairly new to stamp collecting. I have been looking through my collection and have found a 3d Churchill that has 3 grey lines across it from top to bottom. I assume this is where the phosphor bands are but is it normal for the phosphor bands to be grey?

Don't have a photo to hand yet but can get one if someone can help.
