Well done Johan,

I think this is a lovely stamp design. I have a copy in my collection but I did not recognise the detail and I have never realised how nicely engraved these side panels were.

I think one the great benefits of these boards is to see single stamps close up on the screen and to see their fine design and engraving.

My first thought was that the design would be Dutch but of course you would know that was not the case!

So be it, Johan Buvelot! That's very gracious of you. But please don't stop looking at the quiz.
NigelC:
I too love the beauty of many stamps. In fact, I have scanned more than 2,000 of the stamps whose designs and/or details I admire so I can use them as a background slide show on my computer screen. I can even cast them to the huge high fidelity flat screen of our TV set. Many of them can thus be breathtaking -- like paintings on the walls.

Revised scores:
4 -- Blaamand; Jogil
2 5Studebaker, Glenn Estus; Stamperix; Yeapolska
1 -- Florian, NigelC

Johan, this would be the second time after Jean-Paul Sartre in the year 1964 that someone would say "no" to such an honor. I think the GHMEaMBaFEMoPDiOSS (http://goscf.com/t/57762#503878) committee should not accept your decision.

three minutes too late...and just because I couldn't figure out how to put a link on a word in the text here...

The GHMEaMBaFEMoPDiOSS Committee might consider awarding honorable mention declarations for such selfless acts.

I immidiatly knew what region it could be, by looking at the design of the border, it is so typical of Vienna Sezzesion. The designer is Kolom(an) Moser. One of the Co-founders of that movement. in a previous post I have shown and asked a question about a series he designed for the 1911 Wipa. Fabulous design and engraving.

I must unfortunately disappoint the committee upfront, I simply do not have any room on the mantelpiece left for anymore awards or honorable mentions.

Johan Buvelot: I am sorry for any misunderstanding on my part for how this quiz works. It was not my intention to upset you. Obviously, I was wrong about the rules. I do not deserve to get any of your points from this above quiz. Please return back here to play this quiz. You would be missed on here.
