Nethryk: once again I have to thank you. You are a class act here. An example for the rest of us to emulate.

Nethryk,
thanks for helping out on the pine cone stamp. I do not have a Scott
or any other source (except Internet) to supply all information.
I just enjoy the stamps and connect to them in my own way. The technical aspect is not my forte.

Fifia

cynical & fifia - My pleasure! I actually enjoy looking up stuff about stamps. Kinda weird, huh?

The Persian Fallow Deer (Dama dama mesopotamica) is a rare ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. Its taxonomic status is disputed, with some maintaining it as a subspecies of the Fallow Deer, while others treat it as a separate species, Dama mesopotamica. Here is an image of a stamp depicting a Persian Fallow Deer, printed by lithogravure, and issued by Israel on February 16, 1971 as one of a set of four "Animals of the Bible" stamps, Scott No. 436.

Fifa: thanks for putting on the Faroe Islands Silene dioica and Geranium sylvaticum images. I was unable to find Scott numbers for them and wondered if identification numbers have been given to them yet. Does anyone know?

Rod: Hilarious!

Nethryk: great set of Swedish mushroom stamps. Its been years since I have gone hunting for mushrooms but those images inspire me to go again. The items associated with each mushroom are extremely fitting.

This is a good spot to put in a plug for the Collecting By Engraver thread where Lithograving has put on a mushroom set from Czechoslovakia (see p56 of that thread).

Peregrine falcon. Issued in 1981, a very high face value at the time.

James: thanks for putting on the Sea Eagle. My Facit book goes up to 1974-75 so just managed to find it as 1973 Sweden Facit#842. I couldn't find a Scott number as I'm missing the volume that has Sweden in it. You read my mind. I saw your image on the bird thread and thought it would look good here too. When I started the thread I gave no thought to the overlap that would occur with other threads in that many of the images are already in the database in nature type threads but without Latin name identifiers in the text.
