I am back trying to figure out how to organize my Machins with the ultimate goal of mounting them on pages. The system has to allow adding varieties without redoing a lot of pages. For now, I use Vario pages to organize a prototype layout.
I spent the weekend setting up my stamp room! I was "force retired" due to Covid so I decided to turn my home office into a hobby room: 85% stamps, 10% computers, 5% cat. Sorting everything out I came across material I forgot about: bulk purchases from a while ago, stamps that will keep me in postage forever, and, most interesting, two homemade albums for Germany made by my father in the thirties. I think I will try to complete them.
It looks like it is going to be a long winter, but now I am all set!
I'm cataloging a packet of Brazil stamps (1940s/1950s era) I received recently. Some Brazil watermarks are all over the place: upright, inverted, reversed, sideways, etc. Of eight possible orientations, I have identified 5 so far.
