I would love to hear your opinion of the Desert Magic drying book.
It is something I have been considering for a while.

If you cover the shipping I'll send you some kiloware in exchange for your France items

They are one of those stamps that are not particularly valuable but difficult to find.
I found a decent one this week after looking through kilos of kiloware.
I'd love to see some scans of your machins Fernando so I can see how you organise them etc.

Place the stamps on the glossy paper so that you can see the images (the gum side is in contact with the glossy paper).

I don't generally collect these, but it was suggested this is a variety that is relatively hard to find? Or is it just postally used copies that are hard to find? (This one is MNH.)

Nothing odd here, I play through the kiloware looking for duplicates for trades or my main, side-way collections. The common stamps go to envelopes and the difficult to stockbook.

Yep, I use that way on my first "Magic" soak&dry, work very fast and the stamps come flat and clean. Thank you.

That is the "game", easy buy of trade a mint 16p/17p/23p green/37p black, but try to find a used stamp
Read the AnthonyUK post.

Somewhere in the past week, I saw a news item about a man who found a U.K. stamp missing the queen's image.

That might be a lucky find...

So I had a good laught yesterday, I always skipped this thread topic because in my noobness I thought machine was a computer printed (meter mail) postage slip...

yesterday I was trying to figure out what my Great Brittan big black 1L stamp was and suddenly I knew what and how painful machines are to ID.

Machin is actually pronounced something like May Chin.

For years I mispronounced it like Match In .

Yeah. Machin was the name of the guy who created the 'bust' from which UK stamps and coins use for the image of QEII.

Anyone with even a passing interest in Machins should download (and donate if possible) the free machin album pages from this site - http://www.adminware.ca/machin/m_album.htm
For the basic free album it shows the current 451 'basic' varieties.
I'll be offering free starter packs here - http://goscf.com/t/11903

Anthony - that was a great link, I saw you had posted it elsewhere a while back, and I downloaded the free "basic" pages (I don't want to get sucked in too deep.... !!)
They are really good pages, but I have a question.. I would like to print a copy of the pages without the images - i.e. with blank squares, but keeping the descriptions. Not being familiar with PDF format editing, I tried to play around, but no joy. Is there an easy way of removing the coloured images, or it is edit-protected? (For me, read "idiot-protected")
