|Thread: 2012 Austria|
The ants are on a mini-sheet/block of contemporary art by the artist Peter Kogler in which the artist visualises movement. The two central stamps are the real deal. If you look closely at the pink one, you can make out the country/value/artist/price in the corners.
I hope this is the close up you would like.
I agree with you about the change. I do like the look of engraved stamps. I suppose the more "photoshopped" way is more cost effective for the PO, just like that anomaly of a year's worth of football stamps was.
Just taken delivery of this. Congrats to Austria Post - only one "iffy" stamp there - a jigsaw stamp. It is a miniature sheet of four different stamps (Madagascar movie theme) that are perforated like jigsaw pieces.
|Thread: Help please.|
Thanks for that. The million dollar question : what is in the envelope?
I recently bought the above and am curious as to exactly what it is.
It is a small sealed envelope with no real space for an address unless it went on the back. The envelope contains something - I don't know what. Whatever it is is about the size and shape of a playing card. If it wasn't for the submarine theme and stamps.postmarks, I wouldn't have given it another look. Can anyone throw any light on this strange object?
|Thread: New comic release|
@Julia - The Broons were, indeed, DC Thomson.
I'm sure all Scots on the planet of my age, and older, know of them.
That prompted the question: Who did RM ask and what did they ask them?
|Thread: Diamond Jubilee miniature sheet and defins|
With the postages rates about to go up I realised that I was rather low on 1st class stamps at home so I popped along to my local PO.
Do you have any of the diamond jubilee definitives?
No, we've sold out our stock and are now on to comic stamps.
How about the Olympic definitives, I ask?
No, they are sold out too, we only have comic stamps.
What? I thought they were to be available all year?
So buy them on day of release, through Tallents House or though the RM website are the ways to go.
Might be a good investment choice, at this rate used stamps will be rarer than hen's teeth.
|Thread: The Machin Thread|
Aren't we due a yellow machin? A nice bright, lemony yellow!
There is an image here: image
It is very much a work in progress - alignment, background colour etc. It is not a complete series of the stamps, just the ones I have obtained.

I decided to get some stamps framed and decided that the Hong Kong "Machins" were just the ticket. Nice design, nice colours, nicely sized stamps.
|Thread: New comic release|
Whaur's the Broons?
Seriously, I'd like to know how RM came up with this selection.
|Thread: Your favourite postal websites?|
I quite like www.kosel.at
|Thread: The most beautiful stamps in the world|
I really like the look of some of Austria's stamps. They were first brought to my attention with the "Views" set from 1973.
|Thread: Crown Jewels stamps|
About time too! I've been waiting for a classy GB issue for an absolute age.
|Thread: Musicals stamps|
Not impressed in the slightest.
|Thread: What do you collect?|
Austria and Germany are my main areas although I do sometimes buy stamps that are "nice" regardless of where they are from.
Quite like China but looking at the catalogue prices of some post 1945 stuff, I may have to wait a while for them.
|Thread: WWF stamps|
I'd be pleased if I was a thematic collector but am disappointed from a GB point of view.
