By looking in stamp issue programs of international post authorities the following feature issues found:

15.02.2109 - Latvia - Unique exhibits of the Latvian Natural History Museum (tentative: it is still not clear what will be depicted there)
22.03.2019 - Slovenia - Mammals fossil: Oligocene anthracotherium
05.09.2019 - Germany - 250 anniversary of Alexander von Humbolt - great German naturalist. Some collectors might consider this stamp as Charles Darwin made frequent reference to Humboldt's work in his Voyage of the Beagle, where Darwin described his own scientific exploration of the Americas. Some more details can be found in Wikipedia
xx.xx.2019 - Portugal - ATM stamps "Fossils Discovered in Portugal"

xx.xx.2019 - Ukraine - commemorative cover "100 anniversary of zoological museum in Kiev" (there are big Paleontology exhibition in the museum)

If you know any other please share it with me.

Thread: Stamp Issue Plans

Hi everyboy,

I just try to update a list of stamp issue palns of wold wide Post Authorities for the next year. [ This is important to me, because I'm a topical collector who collect not only mint stamps but also used FDC and covers. I always try to find somebody who can send me a cover with stamps of dinosaurs, prehistoric animals, fossils ... at the day of issue. Therefore I have to know in advance when and where such stamps are going to be issued. ]

So far only few Post Authorities are published their plans for 2017. Here you can see it:

Just in case you know about any other not listed there, please either share it here or send me an email:


thank you in advance and Marry Christmas,

Just received these very rare stamps of Congo 1998, overprint multiple 'AUTORISÉ' on stamps of 1993. (MiNr. 1524 & A1530)
According to : "The late nineteen were chaotic times in the Congo. Rebels / warlords took control over parts of the country, and seized significant quantities of valid stamps. To prevent these from being sold or used, the central government had their stock of stamps overprinted, and declared stamps without overprint invalid." In total almost 50 stamps from various stamp sets are overprinted. two of them are from prehistoric animals set from 1993. Michel add - short time after, also in 1998, another overprinted stamps with "LEGAL" text, are issued all stamps with previous overprint declared invalid too. However it were still on sale for collectors.

Curious about its catalogue values. In my Michel copy (2007) price is not provided.

Just finished to sort out all Paleontology related stamps of my site at Chronological order: /

All thematic catalogs I know, order stamps at country order. This is also on my to do list, but to me a chronological order is even more interesting as it shows development of the topic during the time.

Feedback is welcome, enjoy it !

Today I received Nepal 2013 "Fossils of Nepal" set.

There are some blue lines on front and back of each samp. I was thinking there are some pencil tracks, but seller claim it is security protection.

"Please note that the marks are not pencil marks but visible fiber security marks that were placed on the stamps as a security measure. These fiber marks appear on most all stamps, both on the front and back. You can view this information on the Technical details on the back of the FDC ( Point No.5)."

Technical details on a back side of FDC have the follow statemen ( Point No.5)t: "Paper: security stamps paper UV dull with visible & invisible fibres & phosphorescent dots."

What is your opinion ?

Amazing cover came to my mailbox today, actually this an FDC issued on 14.04.2014, but mailed on 21.05.2014. There are two questions about: for how long time FDC is valid in Canada and what are meaning of 3806 M41 1A5 number on machine cancellation on the second post mark row ?
