Moose - I make no claims for my eBay lots! I have some decent French stuff to work through. Most of my other things tend to be reasonably large-scale clear-outs to get me to the objective of a tidy room.

Created a page and mounted the Ukraine unissued 14 stamp set from 1920 for a friend of mine. His wife is from Ukraine.

Also laid out classic Ecuador and Colombia. Somewhere around 100 pages, most of them full or close to it. Hours of mounting in my future. When I'm done, that will leave me with Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

I am still working on custom Machin pages. I am now in 2000 and organize chronologically . Since I collect beyond SG Concise so include all printers, thick/thin values, some phosphor variations, etc. it gets time consuming. The Adminware site has been a great advantage but noticed that the new site has left off some perforation details.

This is my 1999 list but still have more proofing before they are printed. I decided to put full prestige panes as sub pages of the year page and not integrate them with singles on same page.

I looked again at these 2 images
A nice recognition for a lot of work, over the years.

Classic Paraguay laid out and ready to mount, though some pages need fixes. Next stop on my tour of South America: Peru.

Classic Peru is ready to mount and I've finished identifying Uruguay and Venezuela that I have in glassines. Just need to print pages.

Back in Cyprus for a short break, rummaged through cupboards, boxes and more to find the missing Polish stamps, I was not disappointed, found more than I bargained for. Seems that I picked up some nice Poland collections amongst other things about five years ago and had them stashed in my 'to sort stack' which I completely forgot about and started another 'to sort stack' - note to self: get it together man....

Yes, that's been my problem over the years. I don't leave auction lots unopened or unsorted, but I've often failed to unify the sorted duplicates. Doing so has been my philatelic focus over the last few months. France, which is what I buy most of, is the main remaining challenge.

I finished mounting some British Guiana and did more work on my custom Machin pages.

Hello.
I am doing a rather miserable job.
Ripping leafs hinges from Germany to reuse them. I took two days and I don't get to the half.
They are sheets with double stamps, for a joint collection of new and used. No one here wants them.
Regards.

Presented to my local Kiwanis club about stamp collecting and buying/selling. Folks were very interested - asked lots of great questions!

(It also had the positive effect of making me properly label & sort my early Canada collection, as I was showing it...)

Since last time I finally got around to mounting classic Venezuela and Peru. I also pulled Togo 1957-1959 from my Part IV album and remounted on new pages. A bunch more classic South America remains and I'm sure another mount order is in my near future.

Realizing how disappointed I am with some features of my stamp collecting software. But I carry on.

Built a spreadsheet to track the upcoming auction sale of my Russia collection lots. A walk down memory lane but glad to be moving on.
