Thread: Can anyone identify this stamp
05/10/2018 06:41:22

Thanks Paul.

Personally I have never seen one but that explains why I can't find it in the catalogue.

So mystery solved.

Found this while going through an old tin of stamps, any help in identifying it would be appreciated. To be honest I don't know if it is even a real stamp.


Thread: Thematic Collecting protocols - for omnibus issues

Thanks Clive

I thought that this would be the case but just wanted to get it 'right' if you know what I mean.

I will probably go for the single mixed collection first and then split the collected stamps as the collection grows etc.

As I will mount all of the stamps both mint and used it shouldn't damage the stamps the way a hinged collection would.

Hi All,

I may have put this in the wrong place as I suppose this question could relate to all collections not just thematics if I have I apologise.

When collecting a thematic issue it is considered 'Bad practice' to mix mint and used sets in the same issue or is it a matter of choice.

ie. The 1935 Silver jubilee - I have several sets which are used but I also have some sets that are mint should I mount the whole lot in one set of album leaves and mix the two types to try and complete the whole issue or should they never be mixed and therefore I should use two sets of album leaves thus doubling the size of the number of pages used to achieve the same result.

Thread: Advice on this Malaya stamp would be appreciated

Hi Trevor,

Many thanks for your response as I am only what could be called a casual collector I got a bit excited when I found this but I will leave it as is for now.

If in the future I do get it looked at I will return to this post and let you know the result.

I have found the stamp below whilst going through an old album. Would it be worth the time/money investment to get it properly valued or is the flaw so slight as not to bother?
