Agree with your comments Geoff regarding Indonesia,
New collectors can get a nice representative collection for peanuts.
There is a bite in the tail, however, some miniature sheets are hugely expensive.
I suppose you had to start calling charity stamps "semi-postals" as a condition of purchasing the Steiner CD, Rod?
Au contraire! Geoff.
I absolutely follow and appreciate Scott's "Semi postal" and "Air" at B.o.b.
It make collecting so much more compartmentalised in my opinion.
Thumbing constantly through Stanley Gibbons nearly drove me to distraction.
I know there are passionate followers of both regimes.
