Here are some recent and not-so-recent Machins I have purchased in the last week or so.

As best as someone can phonetically display, how do you pronounce "Machins"?

'may' as in the month of May ... 'chins' as in I have two chins. That's what I got from Robin Harris's excellent site.

Thanks Marius. Machins are a lot of fun (and a headache at the same time).

Hey Trainwreck, I only collect US...What makes collecting Machins fun to you (and a headache too)?

The number of varieties is what attracts me to Machins, and many other definitive series. I have fun searching for them, identifying them and putting them into my albums. I use the Deegam handbook for cataloging my Machin collection. The amount of data (and the number of cataloged differences) contained in this publication is enormous, hence the headache. I've developed a method by process of elimination that helps narrow down the choices when trying to identify a particular Machin, so that helps. I also search out differences in modern U.S. definitives, particularly tagging changes and die cut varieties. I'm currently keeping an eye out for the recent 86c Tufted Puffins reprint. I had a ball with the Canada Mammals, Fruit Trees, Flag and Queen definitive series of the late 1980s to 1990s--lots of variety there (many perforation, paper and printer changes). Alas, I'm only passively collecting Canada definitives right now.

I collect commemoratives and anything else I find interesting (U.S. and worldwide), but I concentrate on definitives.

Just picked up a batch of 1920's Germany to fill in some holes. Here's an example of such:



One thing I can say about these stamps ... you need to be just about blind to miss the watermark.

I have many MNH extras of Scott 175, 188, 198, 229, 230, 232, 233, 234, 251, 252, 255, and 269. If anyone is interested, please send me an email. (I will also post in the appropriate forum.)

Germany, after WWI, underwent unspeakable inflation. Is that a surcharge (5m to 100m) that had to do with this?

Oh, absolutely yes. Scott 269 is a 200 Mark stamp surcharged to a new value of 2 million marks. The highest value, I believe, is 50 Billion marks ... quite the wheelbarrow filled with cash.

It was tragic the way the Allies butchered the German economy by making them pay all the reparations after the way - in that Adolph Hitler became a national hero when, once named to high office through his sway with the rising National Socialist Party, persuaded England and company to ease the financial strain, thus improving Germany's economy quickly and making him a hero in the countries eyes.
