Hi Alex,

My SG catalogue is the 2005 edition, but it shows a 12c pink/blue issue for 1865, SG no. 82.

Hope that this helps,

Thanks for the welcome, Carmen.

@Clivel - that was most helpful, it did indeed work. Now why didn't I think of that! dont know

And many thanks for the link to AlbumEasy - I didn't think that there was any software for album pages that would run on Linux - I have been using LibreOffice to produce template pages. I will give AlbumEasy a try.

Hi all,

I think that this is my first post here, so hello everyone!

I returned to the hobby of stamp-collecting last year after a (far too) long absence.

After much indecision about what to collect, I seem to have developed somewhat of a passion for engraved stamps. So I am starting a collection of engraved stamps (though I doubt that I will ever manage to get them all), and designing/printing my own pages accordingly.

But I have a couple of questions, if you could help:

1.I had been using the website '' which has a wealth of information about various engravers, and their issues. But sadly, just recently, it has been inaccessible. Anyone know why ? Are there any other websites that I should visit ?

2. I know that there are societies for various specialisms, such as postal history, perfins, thematics, etc. But is there a society for those interested in engraved stamps, and their engravers/designers ?

3. Are there any good (and affordable) books on engraved stamps ?

Sorry to introduce myself with a load of questions, but I tend to be a 'lurker' (in the nicest possible sense).
