|Thread: Wavy "Royal Mail" iridescent wording|
Good day, I hope you are all well?
I'm currently working on the more modern parts of my GB collection and have 'discovered' stamps with these markings. As a simple example, I have 1st Gold and 2nd Blue "Large" PIP stamps in front of me with the markings - but I'm sure I have also seen the same values without it.
So, is there a list or website anywhere of when iridescent markings were introduced to individual values?
|Thread: Remember Stamp Hinges?|
Thanks for such a prompt response Paul, I noticed you mention Stanley Gibbons hinges - well I am in sunny Wales so may try to get hold of a packet
I'm a new-returner to the hobby and although hinges were 'default' back in my day, I do understand that the clear plastic mounts are far more favoured now-a-days.
However, without boring you, my return to the hobby is accompanied with reduced means - plastic mounts are not cheap in the quantities I need for my new collection and the stamps are predominantly modern-ish used, so hinges are the favoured route.
I believe Prinz are the only manufacturer nowadays (various brands) and I bought some of those but am disappointed. Research online suggests this is common with a number of alternatives (other than 1970s Dennison hinges @ US$20/30 a pack) but these posts were 5-7 years ago and product names / internet links change
So, to the main question. Does anybody successfully use hinges in 2020? I'm not sure if forum rules will allow you to mention brands - but that would be really useful.
Don't get me started on Watermarks - as a kid, Morley-Bright 'Rollatector'? Now it seems, pay a fortune or risk lighter fluid! In this non-smoking age, I haven't found anywhere to even buy lighter fluid.

|Thread: 1982 Postage Due Labels|
Thank you Paul, your help is appreciated.
Can I ask where that nugget came from as I obviously need to expand my library of resources.
Coronavirus lockdown has given me the time to put together a GB decimal album, it'll look so much prettier than shoe boxes!
Building the individual leaves as we speak and I can find no information about the designer of the 1982 "To-Pay" labels. I don't know if that info is in any SG publication but I'm currently relying on free online info, haven't invested in a copy of Collect British Stamps yet!
