I started to move 16 stockbooks of Hungarian stamps sort by denomination in other stockbooks sorted by Scott # . This project will take a year from what I see .

It is going to be a rainy weekend due to Hurricane Matthew so will be spending a lot more time on my stamps than detailing my truck. If I can get it wash and prepped I can do it too.

Working on my Blood's Despach today. If oldguy is interested in Post Roads then the struggle between private companies and the United States Post Office should be of interest.

I have been working on sorting a Canadian collection I purchased. It was about 30 stock book pages. There was a lot of material to sort. I was really surprised of the value of the collection. I need to start selling all of these extras I now have.

And I have been working on my Scott Specialty Canada album pretty hard. It is coming along well. Putting the extras in my international album.

I have a collection of Norway on pages that I need to go through waiting for me.

I purchased more year supplements for my Scott international album (currently complete to 1992). I bought 1994, 2000 and 2002. All three came with new 4" binders and two had the sleeves. The 2000 are unopened.

This morning, I researched and compiled an article about World Post Day/International Letter Writing Week for my blog. I began research for tomorrow's topic on the establishment of the U.S. Naval Academy.

I paid for an eBay auction that I won of stamps from Cape of Good Hope and I scanned some mint U.S. stamps covering 1965-1967.

I also wrote an introduction and posted a few images to this wonderful forum...

I order some more mounts and the 2017 Scott US Specialized ($95!) from Amos. It shipped yesterday (next day processing). I realize I am spending more on supplies than stamps at this point. I also need to order some more slip/dust covers. They sure are nice to have.

While we got hurricane Matthew effects (no real damage in my area although the local grocery store loading dock got flooded), I was able to inventory most of my recent US (post 1990) and see what I was missing. I do collect most tagging, gum, year date varieties so need to fill some spaces (need to create pages for these). Scott definitely has a different standard for numbering classics versus modern but in 50 years will these be classics? I guess pre-1940 will always get special treatment...where minor die and paper differences get major numbers and often minor status in anything after 1940.

If Scott would put a space in their albums for these minor issues, it could help promote collecting of these materials.

Nothing for days. This was supposed to have been a weekend with the wife out of town and my daughter tied up with school events leaving me free to work on my stamp projects. Unfortunately it ended up being days without power or water, debris clean up, etc! Hopefully if there are any members in Eastern North Carolina they are safe and dry.

Odd that ClassicalStamps was pootling around with Ostland recently. I've just finished writing up all my Estonian Ostland covers (79 of them). I've got 48 Latvian Ostland covers to do next, a lot of which are correspondence within the Indra family, from Olmütz (now Olomouc in the Czech Republic). That should make for some interesting research.

After that, it's onwards to researching and writing up a simlarly large number of German East Africa covers and cards, hoping to exhibit some time in 2017. In any other spare time I need to re-arrange all my modern Iceland to accommodate some nice errors in blocks of 4. I will try and get round to posting these some time.

In the more immediate future I'm nervously waiting for a delivery of 150 A4 clear protectors as I have an exhibition of Estonian covers next week and need them for the exhibit. The order is over 2 weeks late (as is often the case with Vera Trinder)...

Tim,

That sounds like a nice collection of covers I look forward to the thread with images

Very interesting period with lots of things to collect!

What books do you use in you research?
I just bought Hofmann's massive 450 page reference books for both Estonia and Latvia. Very good (although the Latvia is only in German).
