jogil check out this PDF file from the National Postal Museum


on pages 22 - 24 which also includes a photo of one the Stickney presses used
by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

Quote from the article:

The rotary presses that Stickney developed, which came to be known by his name, were the "work horses" of the BEP.
Stickney presses produced stamps starting in 1914 and continued in use until 1957.
The last of the Stickney presses was decommissioned on March 15, 1962.


Besides the BEP the only other country I know of using a Stickney press for stamp printing was the
Swedish Post Office in the period between 1920 - 1938.

The Stickney rotary press was used to print Canadian stamps from 1930 to 1933 by the British American Bank Note Company.

jogil, would you know what press Canadian Bank Note used
when they got the contract in 1935?

Also you mentioned previously : The Goebel Press Era of Canadian Stamps" by Ken Sargent with Leopold Beaudet.
It is found in The Corgi Times, Volume 18, Number 4, January-February 2010, Supplement.


Is there any chance you could post this since I cant access it.

Poland, Czechoslovakia, Cuba used the Stickney rotary press too.
CBN may have used the press that they were using before 1930 for 1935.

Does either of you have any information
as to the timeline when these various Postal
entities you mentioned employed Stickney presses
for stamp production?

Most seem to be early issues from between WWI and WWII

In Belgium the Atelier du Timbre - Postzegelwerkplaats in Mechelen acquired a Stickney-press in 1927 and used it mostly for the definitives [so-called Poortman stamps named after the engraver] until 1950.

As far as I know there was NO Stickney press in the PWPW [Pa#324;stwowa Wytwórnia Papierów Warto#347;ciowych = State Printers of Security Papers] in Warsaw, Poland.

And I also have my doubts about the Cuban printers!?

@jogil & Galeoptix, Thanks for the info.

I remember now that the Czech State Printer (whatever he was called then) used a Stickney press in 1925
to print (actually reprint) the Masaryk stamps.

I believe Florian mentioned it some time ago but I had forgotten it.

The Stickney-Druckverfahren is also mentioned in Michel which makes it
one of the rare cases where a type of press is actually noted
in a catalogue.

@ Galeoptix, great thread you started on the Briefmarkenforum
about the Austrian Ferienland-serie.
You certainly come up with interesting topics.

After I saw your posts there I checked my 30 odd copies of the 51c
and found that about 90% were from the first printing.
Then again the latest postmark was February 2003 so maybe that
is not a good indication as to the quantities from each printing.
The new 55c rate did not come into effect until
May 30, 2003 I believe.

I'm always amazed at how much fun one can get out of such minimum value, basically no value, worthless stamps.

I just wish more collectors would get into this kind of stuff, it
just might save this hobby of ours.

For Poland, it is the Silesia miner of 1922 stamps which can be either rotary or flat.
For Cuba, it is the stamps with the round medal 1925-1926 portraits either rotary or flat.

jogil, those stamps were not recess engraved. Scott has
Poland 176 - 190 printed via lithography whereas Michel
which lists them under Poland Plebiscite Area in Upper Silesia
7 - 20 claims they were printed by way of typography.

Galeoptix mentioned here previously that the Belgian Atelier du Timbre, Malines also used a Stickney press.

See this fine article called:

Why Poortman stamps printed on the Wifag press are shorter
than those from the Stickney press.

It's amazing how much information has already been deposited
on this site.

Here is a thread called Booklet versus other stamps
where Russ writes about the differences between R. Hoe & Co. flat plate press and
the Stickney rotary press.

Great information and very well illustrated.

Thank you Russ.
