Re: Please help to identify this Due mark

Good morning Candarin from Florida, USA. I was hoping someone knowledgeable would answer your question. I mainly stick to the PRC so old ROC or Imperial markings are not my forte. But If I remember, there is an (or more?) excellent book on the Postal Markings of China. One such is Peter Paget's book...

Re: Just Joined? - Please tell us something about yourself.

Good morning Karl, at least it is here in Florida, USA. Welcome to the forum and I see you have already met Dawn. If my memory serves me, William Wise wrote about these numbers appearing on individual stamps several years ago in The China Clipper , journal of the CSS that Dawn referred to. You might...

Re: Newbie

Welcome Peter. Manchuko? Gees, just spent a couple of weeks organizing a part of my collection. Moved it from Scott number organization to the CSS catalogue system, called Mengkiang in the CSS catalogue. Both are very different. I'm staying away from the MLO however. Have to say I got lost and confu...

Re: Have you seen this fakes before?

I do not remember ever being asked to look at this set before.

Interesting to say the least. But as I have said many times on here. it is hard to tell from a computer scan posting.

Re: Hong Kong Annigoni stamps

Welcome Doe, Trying to say something concrete when looking at an online image is chancy. I definitely see what you are talking about for the Queen's right side. That by itself would suggest a mis-registration. But there are a number of other things I see that make me wonder about this stamp. I do no...

Re: Rate to China

A most useful tool for this and future use. The CSS has posted on its website their philatelic database. This includes all China Clipper articles, and a number of others. It can be searched online. I am sure without looking that your question can be answered by one or more articles already published...

Re: cultural revolution stamps and FEC banknotes

Buying/selling stamps unseen is tricky business. Especially when you consider that many GPCR stamps are quite pricey. Might I suggest you consign this collection to the CSS auction? CSS can provide some assurance to both the buyer and seller that the stamps are genuine and the seller will get paid. ...
