Ireland - Thank you! I've never really looked at it as work though. This is just a lot of fun, and very stress relieving.
I'm currently updating my Brazil album.
For reference, I originally started this Brazil album back in October of last year. Here is a quick link to my beginings:http://goscf.com/t/63909&whichpage=4
I recently bought a small batch of older Brazil, and have been accumulating other Brazilian stamps along the way, which in turn has made it necessary to update my album.
Started with the Dom Pedro issues. My original page for the 1866 issues included spaces for 3 types of the 100r, as listed in Scott. Not sure why I did it this way, instead of going by the RHM listing. So I decided to re-tool the page.
Here is my original page, which includes the 1876-77 issues. The Scott cat. lists the 3 types as I, II, and III.
The RHM catalog shows 4 types and lists them as 1, 1a, 1b, and 2. So that is what I went with. I also included graphics, depicting the 4 types, at the top of the page. This required me to actually split the page into 2, which is fine as it leaves me room to add other stuff at a later time. These are the 2 pages created from the 1 old page. I was lucky enough to find examples of all 4 types among the group of stamps I am working on now. I also filled some other holes as well.
The 1878-79 page remained the same, but I was able to add a few more of the missing stamps., as well as upgrade a couple others.
Also while working with the Dom Pedro issues, I wound up accumulating enough duplicates to create a separate page to show some of the many cork cancels that can be found on these issues.
Next up are the Southern Cross, Sugarloaf Mountain and Hermes head issues, of which I have quite a batch to get through.
