716-31 Huangshan Set

This set is to me, the most beautiful of all PRC issues. I don't know how they did it, given the relatively primitive printing processes they had in 1963 compared to today, but these stamps seem to have an almost hypnotic beauty. They almost glow on an album page. A CTO set will set you back over $1...

Back Again

This is probably my third spell of membership. I rejoined in 2015, lapsed out last Fall then rejoined last month. Hope to stay around awhile this time. My first membership was as a youngster back in the mid 1980's when I joined as a younger PRC collector. My experience then was a bit disappointing, ...

Re: Mystery Albums for China

I wanted to post an update on the STAMPIKO album pages, I just got my set today. Very well packed, received in a short time. It appears they provide for a basic China pre 1949 collection plus pages for occupations, Manchuoko, just about the works in five sections with about 280 pages. My only compla...

Re: Michael Rogers, No Longer Selling Literature?

Michael authored a number of monographs on various subjects. Most were sold by his firm for just a couple dollars each. I wonder if perhaps the society could offer those as downloads on the website? Perhaps for members only? Just a thought.

Michael Rogers, No Longer Selling Literature?

I know he is now a partner in the Kelleher auction group. While surfing today I ran across this retail Literature list on lne: http://www.michaelrogersinc.com/books.htm I have some interest in some of the literature offerings on there but when clicking elsewhere on the site I get a message that beca...

Re: Mystery Albums for China

Thanks for the reply. I am familiar with the Fidelity album and have a set of them, complete up to 2001, will need to update sometime soon. I believe that album is just for PRC issues. The album pages I was referencing are for pre 1949 China. I have since posting found them. The name is 'Stampiko', ...

Mystery Albums for China

Some of you will know what I mean. You see something on eBay or some site and take mental note of it then months later you try to find it again and cannot. Does anyone recall seeing listings for German made albums and pages for the China area, both standard and hingeless from a company named somethi...

Re: Applied last Month- What's Going on??

Still nothing. I have started a refund process with Paypal.

I hope someone in a position to help is monitoring this board. This is a very unfortunate situation.

Re: Applied last Month- What's Going on??

LOL- glad to know I am not alone. I've been in touch with Mr Maxwell and he has been given payment details. I think maybe the Secretary may not be up to speed on some things yet. I may be withdrawing my application shortly and asking Paypal for a refund. Sorry to have to do that but don't know what ...
