My last scans shown on the 25th August 2019 relate to the 9d 9½mm phosphors and included in the last two scans was a vertical block of 10 (5×2) on what was described by me as cream type paper .

This block was the one sent for expertisation and given a whiter paper endorsement by the RPSL on a certificate dated 27th June 2018 , by their definition , all of the papers depicted in the scans are all identical whiter papers purely due to the fact that they were issued post 1962 on 29/12/66 .

In a previous posting in this article dated 18th July 2019 this same block was compared to a 6d plain cancelled in 1960 , can you see the resemblance in the colour of the paper ?

The previous scan showed the reverse only, below is a frontal image of the same stamps .

They are all all cream type papers !img_20190723_100559.jpg

For a further understanding in the use of ultraviolet lamps please read my recently posted article by the name of " Ultra violet radiation of multiple crown Wilding definitives " .

Thank you you .

Dear viewer(s),

If anyone can give any constructive comments or information on the subject of cream and whiter type papers due to the inclusion of 'optical brightening agents' issued since 1962 , then they would be gratefully received .

Surely, it can't just been me that has discovered all of these differences in the types of paper used to print the multiple crown wildings !

Please air your views on the subject,

Thanks, Fred .

Dear Fred

I notice there is a British Wilding Stamps group on Facebook. It has 328 members and an average 3 posts a week. You may find more information and responses there to supplement any you get here

Good morning Paul, thanks for the ' link ' .

It would appear that before you can view any postings on this forum you have first got to become a member, unlike this forum where membership gives you the right to create threads .

Consequently, I will not be giving my personal details just to view it's contents, it's a closed group forum.

Perhaps some of their members could comment on my findings if their interests lie in Wildings, after all there are 328 of them .

They must have read your comments Fred!

It is a closed group (now called a private group as of today!) with the following comments:

It is a private group. Just like before, only members can see that you're a member and what you post.

The group is visible in search and other places. Just like before, anyone can find it and ask to join.

So you only need to request to join, not give lots of personal details. I admit it assumes you are a facebook member of course!

I don't belong to the Wilding group, but I do to QV stamps, Postmarks, Rare GB Stamps & one other. A few have become full of people trying to sell stuff, but if the moderators do their job these are soon deleted and the posters kicked out - much the same as here.

That's nice to know Paul ,

Perhaps some of them may also want to contribute to this subject relating to papers used for the printing of the multiple crown Wilding definitives that some of them study .

Who knows !

They may even have the latest edition of the the part 3 specialised catalogue relating to the rewriting of the introduction on papers that you stated in my thread " Ultra violet radiation of multiple crown Wilding definitives " recently .

Further to my comments made on this thread 22nd August 2019 :-

There must have been several reasons as to why whiter type paper was adopted by the GPO back in 1962 for their production of postage stamps .

One of the reasons for the changeover from cream to white was given by John Sugden in 1969, the then editor of the Woodstock catalogue,he stated.....

" The paper is made with brackish moor water .This is usually discoloured giving cream paper, but can become clear on occasions giving white paper " .

Therefore, according to his statement white type papers were produced before 1962 .

I have never found any white type papers on British stamps issued before 1962, have you ?
