Issues DS29 and DS30 of my free quarterly newsletter are now available as PDFs to read/download/print.

They cover the world of British stamp printers and their dummy stamps which are, of course, defined as Cinderellas, but cover many philatelic items that will be collected for their theme or topic. These latest issues include composer Edvard Grieg, art, banknotes, GPO Tower, ships, flowers, heraldry, etc.

Please go to www.stampprinters.info/dummystamps.htm if interested, from where all 30 issues are available.

Thanks for sharing this is a fascinating area of Philately. I picked up a couple of US dummy stamps (referred to as test stamps in Scott I think). You obviously put alot of effort in the the production of these high-quality newsletters!

Great information Glenn and thank you.

I would think that Dummy Stamps / Test Stamps will find their mark in philately something similar in comparison to meters, perfins and cinderella stamps.

Each are a study all by themselves.
