I'm thinning out the library and getting rid of some of my older catalogs. So, let's have some fun with it.

Winner will receive at no cost a like-new copy of Michel Briefmarken-Katalog Deutschland 2000/2001. This copy is as close to new as you can get without the wrapper. The spine's not even creased.





This is Michel's basic (as in not specialized) German catalog. It's in color, and this was the last issue with values in DM before the switch to the Euro. It covers the following areas:

German States
German Reich through WWII
German Post Offices Abroad
German Colonies
German Ship Post Abroad
German Plebiscite Territories
Danzig
Memel
Saar
German WWI Occupations
Sudetenland
German WWII Occupations
German Feldpost in WWII
German Locals post-WWII
Allied Occupation Joint Issues
Berlin and Brandenburg
Soviet Zone
East Germany
West Berlin
French Zone
American and British Zones
West Germany

So here's the task. Germany once had a colony with a capital at Lomé. The founder of this colony was later commemorated by having his picture on a German stamp.

Post a picture of the stamp. First person to post it gets the catalog.

Very good, Rod!

It's Dr. Gustav Nachtigal, founder of the German colonies in Togo and Cameroon, and he's featured on a stamp from the 1934 Colonial Celebration set.

Please e-mail me your address and I'll have the catalog posted tomorrow.

Wow!
that is absolutely fantastic!
This deserves the banana

I hope you don't mind, but when I get it
the spine will be creased and the pages dog eared,
I have oodlies of German to ID.

That is a great gift!

Just an idea, if you are thinning your library
perhaps put one up for auction with the proceeds
going to SCF

Once again, Thanks, email sent.

That was my plan for the stack of Specialized catalogs I have waiting in the wings. They're too valuable to give away on contests that are obviously too easy!

Nice job Rod, now did you know the answer or have to google it up. (And if you say you knew the answer, I will have to commit hari-kari. No one should have that much information running around in their head!) :)

No matter which way I answer, I'll disappoint someone,
so I shall remain mute, other than to
congratulate Postmaster for such a lovely Prize,
it shall be put to good use.

did you say you worked for the diplomatic corps? How to squirm around the answer. I am going to go with "you knew the answer". That way I can keep you on your pedestal! :)

but hey! I have a $60 toaster, it does crumpets,
it has "a bit more" button, it's stainless steel,
but I stiill manage to burn the toast.

I think I should be a road test dummy for toasters.

I still eat it too they say charcoal is good for the teeth.
