Welcome Phil

I like the blocks. I have often wondered what is the biggest sheet regularly issued?

Maybe the few folk who do venture on here will respond? I think mine is 1940 China - US constitution. Wil measure & post a photo (not a scan since it is bigger than my A3 scanner!)

Thanks Paul

I had quite a few full GB sheets (120 values) over the years but always found them to be a tad cumbersome. I passed on most of them.

1/4 sheet (30 values) or slightly larger is as big as I go these days as I keep my stamps in stock books.

Your 1940 China sheet sounds like a big beastie indeed! .. like Kim Jong-un's ego!

Welcome Phil! While I don't collect sheets (and certainly none of the size you've mentioned), I have had some larger stuff come into my collection over the years, and added it with pleasure (like you, anything goes... I'm no stamp snob, let me tell ya!)

Mostly it has been random things I found that have no real value but look great... one of my larger ones is a sheet containing paintings of all the kings and queens of England for one of the UAE countries, and most recently, a cool print (that was meant to be framed) from the UK, commemorating Charles Dickens' life, and including Scott 620a - 1970 Literary Anniversaries Series.

Many thanks Carmen! .. I took my two GB 1970 Literary Anniversaries blocks of 40 from a full sheet (photos posted) SG824/7 .. I've often thought of framing stamps to hang on a wall but never followed it up .. I have about 50 prints of David Roberts c19th paintings from Egypt to frame first! lol ..

Hi everyone
I have a massive worldwide collection that I just recently started up again after a rather long break. I don't concentrate on any particular country, just whatever take my fancy at the time. So I have a very wide interest.
Many thanks
Dave

Welcome Brian! We're a small and kind crowd of collectors here... what made you start collecting them?

Good evening all. I collect GB only from 1840 until about 2013 when I terminated my account with the Philatelic Bureau. That was for two main reasons; firstly, I was just sick and tired of all the commemorative issues and secondly, too many variously coloured Machins to collect - bah!

Welcome David,

I, like you, stopped collecting GB some years ago for the very same reason.

Unfortunately, most countries are the same and look and us collectors for their revenue and new commemoratives are a fine example.

Keith
