Good afternoon everybody,

Whilst searching the catacombs for varying amounts of philatelic information, I came across this little gem 💎, it's regarding the sorting of Machin stamps by Robin Harris on the Adminwear site.

Anyone thinking of collecting Machins should read this article, as it helps to simplify what otherwise can be a complicated subject.

Fred.

Cool Fred, thanks! It's not an area I specialize in, but useful nonetheless as I do seem to have a lot of the little tykes!

Talking about little tykes Carmen, what happened to the jellyfish on the $10 Whale stamp.

Did they get eaten or what ?

Good question my friend... no they're there... but the angle I had the lamp at didn't show them and since the diver was what I really wanted you to see, I couldn't be bothered to take any more time... I DO have a day job, ya know! wink

Good morning Carmen, with all the postings that you have recently made I was thinking this might be your full time job that you had undertaken.

Fred.

Another posting that I have just updated on the Great Britain philatelic societies discussions board I think you will find of interest, concerning the differentiation between papers used to print Machin stamps using the damp paper experiment.

Have fun, Fred.

Ah, that would be because I am an EARLY riser (usually anywhere between 4 and 5 am) which means that I have time to... (as I did yesterday):

- coffee and bible study

- stamp stuff and breakfast

- 1-hour Walk (all the above between 4:30 and 8:15)

- Work (9-1:30)

- Nap (2-3 - because I woke up at 4:30, LOL!)

- Watch Liverpool defeat Milan (3-2) - best part of the day! wink

So yeah, I'm definitely a lark, not a night owl. I'm usually in bed by about 9 pm.

Nearly as bad as me, but then I am retired.

Have a nice day 😊

Fred.
