Thanks Rod,
Those look great, very nostalgic for me. I spent many happy summer holidays visiting Lourenco Marques (now Maputo) as a child. It was the closest seaside resort to where I grew up.

I had never really taken much notice of the stamps before, you have piqued my interest

Clive,
I am an old sailor, that general geographic area, is a fascination to me,
I always wished /dreamed of joining an old tramp steamer, doing the rounds
of the Madagascar channel. Quelimane, Nossi be, Inhambane, Laurenco Marques, even the Comoros.

It must have been just fabulous in the early days.

Nice words, thanks Kirk. you are too kind.

I thought Mozambique /company was a stamp collecting "sleeper"
I have lost 8 of the 10 bids in the past few weeks.

Prices blew me out of the water.
There is strong interest in this discipline.
My gaps shall remain vacant.

Rod,

I tried emailing you but could not do it since I am a new member.

I will check my stamps for trade later on and think I might be able to fill some gaps as we have friends visiting us and it is 4 AM at the present time.

Daniel

Thanks Daniel,
No rush, we have plenty of time.
Note: the material I was quoting was the pre 1938 issues, esp the Common Design Ceres sets, they are difficult to complete in any Portuguese collection.
And the Republic opts.

After 1938 I am still light on, but they are achievable over time.

A shame that your millions weren't available when I struggled to get twenty quid for a stock-book of Portuguese Colonies a while ago, Rod.

Steiner does the Views set a disservice by cramming together two distinct issues (and omitting one of the 10 cent stamps in the process). Without getting too detailed, my ancient Gibbons Europe gives a good separation between the two issues (and the later 1924 printing of the first set). Sadly, I can't scan mine as they've been casualties of the vigorous and ongoing downsizing process.

Geoff,

I understand your point.
I disagree with "disservice" and "cramming"

Mr. Steiner cannot be held responsible, he follows (for us) the layout similar to Scott catalogue, so we must observe the Scott catalogue regime.

In direct comparison, with Gibbons, I choose Scott in a blink, the font is attractive, clear, precise and "sets" are offered in a contiguous list, that is comfortable to the eye.

Your list , I believe, shows 36 stamps in the basic set, Scott 37.

As I have mentioned many times before, I use Gibbons to ID particular variants, and perhaps prices of same, but that's as far as it goes.
I have seen Gibbons break up sets due to release dates sometimes near 10 years, who wants to be thumbing through Doorstep catalogues looking for a lone stamp, 10 years later. Not me.

Here is Scott, 37 stamps (not crammed) in a contiguous list, perf variants and years issued.........just beautiful in my opinion.

The 10c, I would put down to a "shade"

Rod - the problem is that it isn't one set, it's two, with the second being a different group of colours and, in some cases, values. And, in consequence, that Steiner page looks horrible. If there were any design element (and I understand why he doesn't bother with that, given the number of pages he has to make), it wouldn't look so bad, as the 1/4 cent and 2 cent stamps, for example, could be placed at either ends of the row to create some balance.

There, I do agree.
the page is out of balance, I have added a few shades at the bottom, which doesn't help.

Yep, it does look a bit like a dog's brekky, and, he designed it over 2 pages,
so he could have done better, a rare occurrence it must be said.

Add to that, my use of 2nd hand mounts, and (at the time) using UHU glue for the mounts, which then often moved out of orientation whilst tacky.

Phew! I hadn't realised that the Scott catalogue didn't have the detail - I was assuming something like the Gubbons area catalogues, whereas it's closer to Stamps of the World, but with perf and watermark information, by the look of the Mozambique section.

I shall now return to the Egypt page I've been making a nasty mess of.

You must realise the image was taken from a general catalogue.
I am a worldwide collector, I get stamps coming over my desk any day from 300 or so countries, I reach for the Scott in a blink.

You want detail? Scott will leave you mesmerised, whilst Gibbons ends with their postage perhaps, and hands over what they cannot handle to Barefoot.

Scott Specialised....1000 pages of every piece of perfed and otherwise paper produced.

A tour de force of Philately.........
