|Thread: Vatican Stamp Engravers|
That would be fantastic. Look forward to hearing what reference material he uses for Vatican stamps.
My favourite stamp engravers are Czeslaw Slania and Albert Decaris.
I am aware that some catalogues have who designed and engraved which stamp, unfortunately I do not have a catalogue for the Vatican
Also, I do enjoy reading through the Stamp Engravers blog as well.
Thanks for you response
I was going through a small collection of stamps from the Vatican City and a few of them caught my eye. This lead me to try and find a list of engravers who engraved stamps for the Vatican.
Unfortunately my research has failed me and I was wondering if anyone here new of a list or could share a list here.
|Thread: Help with identifying Greece Hermes|
I am not very good with depicting Colours, luckily my wife if pretty good at it.
Once I work out the colour I guess that will help with what year this stamp was released.
Thanks for this info Michael.
I am thinking of selling this stamp on ebay, just wondering what would be the best description to put on it. Oh and I will be starting this at .99c.
Thanks for your assistance Michael. I have just been looking at my 2009 Scotts catalogue and I am unable to locate this stamp for 1880-86 series.
Here are the pages from Scotts I have. I was just wondering if you can point me in the right direction from these pages.
Thanks in advance
I have had a look at that site as well but it was also confusing, well for me anyway.
Thanks Adrian. I look forward to reading your findings.
I found this stamp in a bulk lot I bought quite a while a go and only now going through it.
I also have Scott catalogue and noticed all the different plate etc. I am not sure how to determine which one it is though.
I have just come across this stamp from Greece. I don't collect Greece so this is well out of my collecting interest.
I was just wondering if someone can me to identify this stamp with a CV.
Thanks in advance
|Thread: It's a boy!|
Here is the sheetlet of 10 that Australia Post has released.
|Thread: What do you collect?|
I collect Australian, Australian Antarctic Territory, British Commonwealth upto and including 1970 and a engraver with the name of Slania.
I am also thinking of collecting France as I do enjoy looking at the engraving work on there stamps.
|Thread: Elizabethan stamps|
I recently purchased a small lot of Hong Kong stamps and decided to do some searching for varieties.
This variety in my 1973 Elizabethan Catalogue has a CV of £1.40 Mint and no CV for used. If anyone has a more current Elizabethan Catalogue can you please help with a CV.

This is my first post, so I do appologise if it doesn't work.
One of my favourite King George VI stamps is this 1945 Nyasaland 20/- Badge of Nyasaland.
