Thank you very much for your compliments Joel. Anyway, I want to rewrite my colection after my visit to Estonia a week ago. I'm interested on 1989/1992 Estonian Postal History items and also on 2001 to date Estonian FDC; I'm some but I would like to complete my collection.

Is anyone here interested in buying/trading Estonia stamps?


The 'Rules' for this forum do not allow a member to engage in buying / selling / trading until they have reached 50 posts and 14 days I believe it is.

But this number is easy to reach. Look around at other threads / topics and ask questions (keeps us all on our toes!) or add in your opinion. It is OK to waken old topics that you feel you have some input to add to.

I also am a fond collector of Estonian stamps. When the USSR collapsed I wrote letters to addressees like "The Philatelic Department, Central Post Office, Tallinn, Estonia" (and similar to Vilnius, Lithuania and Riga, Latvia) asking to subscribe for new stamps issues. Estonia was the first to reply so I am now subscriber #52. Latvia followed shortly after, while Lithuania did not set up a philatelic service for about 3 years; nonetheless somebody else from Vilnius picked up my letter and I started a correspondence with him and he supplied me with the first issues (2-3 years) of Lithuania.

I also bought a few lots of these countries 1918-40, Estonia being the most advanced with only 3 stamps needed to complete (apart from the 1918 Vilnius Local Issues, which some catalogues consider normal issues; one of these stamps was issued only in 7 (SEVEN) copies. It is the 1 Kop yellow perforated. I have a few of these but am not 100% sure if the overprints are genuine. Here they are. Any expert's opinion welcome

I wouldn't call myself an expert but from what I know and what I've seen those look genuine.

Beautiful collection. Thank you for sharing. Don't see those very often.

Yes, I have a list, I use the Estonian cataloge, although with those provissionals You're always unsure.
But is better to wait until you are free to trade. I'm also quite new (a month, or so)and I don't want to break any rules. It's not so hard to reach 50 posts. In one month (from which I haven't posted for 2 weeks) I've nearly reached twice that figure.

Very nice issues, the Estonian Parliament at Toompea and St Margaret's church in Muhu island (I guess). But tell me Joel: Do you know why they issue a new 0.58 € definitive stamp, afer 2 1/2 months of issuing this one:





If there's a need of more 0.58 € stamps. Would't it be easier just to run another print of the June one?

Post offices, will never stop surprising me...

Few days ago I asked for those purple 0.58 € stamps, they said they are all out and no more will be printed. And today there is more...just a different color. I am not sure as of right now why they decided to change it.
I was surprised to even see this stamp released. It was not in the 2011 release plan.

I think so too.

They only printed 200 000 of the purple ones. 750 000 for the new green one.
I'm not surprised that they went so fast. It costs 0.58 € to send a letter out of the country so must have been a perfect stamp for everyone.

On the new Estonian stamps, do they have a phosphorescent tagging, and, if yes, how is it applied? On all four edges like Canada, or on two edges or just one or perhaps the paper itself is all-over fluorescent?

What type of UV lamp would you need to examine this? Long or short wave?
