Hi Rod,
Yes, they starting issuing 'Christmas Seals Gift Tags' (this is their description, not mine) within the sheets of Christmas Seals. Since I only collect Christmas Seals (which are meant to be used on envelopes), I choose to not add the 'Gift Tags' to the pages.

Don, as the current editor of Green's catalog of U.S. National Christmas seals, I found the approach you took for your pages to be clear and concise. In many ways it reminds me of Vernon Bressler and Elmer Long's 'Christmas Seal Album' distributed ca. 1939-1950s, but no longer published.

Fyi, I have been considering a change in how we list the 1913 issue. Scott's of course identifies 3 main varieties, with WX11 (Type 1, with poinsettias) being the rarest; there appear to be fewer than 100 copies in existence, so most collectors will never own one. Green's catalog has listed it in the same fashion as Scott's since the 1930s. Research suggests, however, that the Type 1 is actually an essay or a kind of hybrid proof, and there is no clear evidence that it was ever issued or released in that design. None are known on cover, and we don't even know what the sheet format was. But philatelic tradition can be strong, so rather than moving it to the essay/proof section where it probably belongs, I am considering just adding a cautionary note to the listing.

I have no real point other than to offer info on a topic that is dear to my heart. -- Stephen

What about type IV and type V in the 1911's? And type IV in 1913?. Also the varieties in 1913 Type II? And then there is the whole 1908 ongoing issue with the UNK's. Wish you could've made the stamp show Stephen, would've been great to meet you. The CSCSS booth stayed very busy.

Rod, will post updated pages no later than tomorrow.

Turf,
I am in development of a new catalog that has number organized at three levels; the basic number, a 'variety' number, and a 'sub-variety' number. I will then publish three sets of album pages, each will match the catalog levels. This organization will support collectors at every level, providing an upgrade path as the collector grows their collection.

But note that I am one person and have a finite amount of time to apply to this project.
Don

Don,
I was just mentioning them for "completeness" purposes. I'm not an album page guy anyway. One day maybe, just not enough time in a day right now..

Thank you very much Don,
Great pages, I am enjoying placing the few I have.
I'll just paste over the error with your new text.

Goodness me, I thought the current pages were highly specialised.....

I'm having a real hard time finding images that confirm my identification of the three types of the 1928 issue. Can anyone help me with the shading on the sails and the spots on the flag? I have already done a good deal of searching on the Google.

I had never sorted my meager pile of about 20 copies, but find about equal numbers of these 3, which I ID as:

Type 1:


Type 2:


Type 3:


The long, continuous, black shading lines in the lower right corner of each sail made pulling type 3 out quickly, then splitting types 1 and 2 was fairly obvious with different black shading and screening quality of the red in the sails. If I've erred here, then I'll learn from the correction too.

This really helps John, thank you. I'm surprised no one has more detailed images of each variety online. The Scott catalog descriptions are hit or miss for me.
