Thought for the day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good afternoon everybody,

They say that in every life a little rain must fall, but occasionally it pours down.

I'm sure that you have all been there from time to time.

Have a nice day everyone with a sunny dry afternoon all you philatelists out there.

Fred.

For the more discerning of you, I have now started to create individual articles for each stamp separately discovered on the QE2 forum of the GBPS that are not currently listed in specialised catalogues giving a more "in depth" coverage as to my findings, eventually covering the whole spectrum of what I have discovered or found to be of relevant interest/difference.

The ones so far depicted are as follows >

THE 3d WALES PLAIN PRINTED ON A FLUORESCENT WATERMARKED PAPER.

boards/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1793 >**LINK**

THE 10d WILDING PHOSPHOR PRINTED ON 3 DIFFERENT PAPERS.

boards/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1795 >**LINK**

THE 1/3d REGIONAL FOR NORTHERN IRELAND PRINTED ON A FLUORESCENT PAPER.

boards/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1789 >**LINK**

There is nothing quite so frustrating as to finding a variety relating to a particular stamp only to find that on checking with a relevant specialised catalogue it has not been included, deemed to be either inconsequential or of insufficient philatelic importance to be recognised as a variety as such, perhaps this may now get rectified based on some of my findings submitted on the forum.

I can now inform you that a new posting has now been made regarding the 4d Wilding deep ultramarine, first released on the 28th of April 1965 as a follow-on to the composed previous ones, under the name of ....

It looks like the rain is clearing for Wimbledon, and don't stay up too late tonight after watching the match ! Let's hope that England wins ⛹️⚽

TTFN, Fred.

It's not just me that has found discrepancies in the SG specialised catalogue listings. Here's further information relating to the 4d contaminated papers that were reported to have been issued as late as February 1968 in a 10/- booklet in a report made by Hanns Fasching of the Modern British Philatelic Circle in their "Bookmark" journal along with a query over finding cream type papers also.

Come here !

Pages 148-149 from Journal 45-3.pdf [1.15 MiB]

This journal is normally reserved for members only, but Mr Fasching editor of "The Deegam handbook/catalogue" has kindly given his permission for me to show you the extract originally published in the BMJ in 2015 volume 45 no.3 pages 148/9. Thanks Hanns.

Here's a tip from an old timer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It would appear that many dealers don't seem to have the time nor the inclination to check their stock prior to sale, and the many variable type papers which I have discovered can be obtained for the same price as the more prolific ones, which gives the specialist a somewhat overall advantage over other collectors, as an example, I have been purchasing the 1/3d regionals printed on cream paper for the same price as the whiter paper version, stamps that should normally retail for around £3 to £4 can be purchased for as little as 20p or even less, there are lots of bargains to be had out there !

As part of my compendium on various types of papers discovered on individual multiple crown Wilding values, I can now inform you that a posting has been made as per the description below.

GBP'S Discussion Boards • View topic - THE 1/6d MULTIPLE CROWN PHOSPHOR STAMP PAPERS.

boards/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1802 >**LINK**

It just adds to the growing number of different denominations found so far. Fred

For those of you who have not downloaded the bookmark journal pages, here is Mr. Fasching displaying the contaminated papers found of the 4d 9½mm phosphor booklet stamps >

As to why this type of paper has never been listed as a variety as with the cream and whiter ones goes beyond my understanding of what VARIETY means, if something is different it should be listed and classified as such ! Don't you agree ? Fred

On reflection, if you possess a "black lamp" have you found any of these contaminated papers in the stamps of your own GB collection ?

It would be nice to know from viewers like yourself just how widespread and how common this particular variety of paper really is !

The same also applies to the unlisted oxidised cream and fluorescent papers used to print GB stamps after 1962 which also exist, giving specific details of the particular stamp in question along with an attachment.

After all isn't that what this forum's all about : INTERCHANGEABLE INFORMATION.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon, Fred.
