Each issue of my Dummy Stamps Newsletter relates to items from the world of British dummy philatelic material from postage and stationery stamp printers, with an occasional excursion abroad when relevant to Britain somehow.

Please go to www.stampprinters.info/dummystamps.htm for the latest 20 page issue, now available online to download, read on screen, or print-off. All 26 back issues and supplements are also available from the same URL.

I have also uploaded to the same location a 30 page document relating to the printing presses and dummy stamps produced by the Swiss firm of WIFAG. It incorporates much research and 200+ scans of cinderella material, which will hopefully interest those with non-GB interests.

Thank you for sharing this Glenn

It sure is an interesting facet of philately.

Maybe one of the PDF bulletins might explain a couple of items in my collection? I know I have a few of the British "Test" stamps.

Bujutsu, if you don't find your test items in the newsletter, why not post them here and I will give you the story behind the items (hopefully!). That goes for anyone else, too, of course.

Has publication of this newsletter stopped?

The latest issue online is from the second quarter of 2019: https://www.stampprinters.info/dummystamps.htm

Halfpenny Yellow, sincere apologies for the difficulties in accessing recent issues of Dummy Stamps - and for your interest. Registered users have been unaffected, but I had been unable to correct a technical issue that prevented me from updating my web pages. I have spent four hours this morning resolving matters and you will find the missing issues 55 to the new issue 60 at the link that you provided in your posting. GLENN

Most likely. At least, the Susten Pass and Basel are in Switzerland
