Looks fantastic Philazilla. I do wish people would stop posting these lovely looking pages because it really reminds me how lazy I am and how bad my collection really looks with almost zero organization.......




*(I am kidding about the stop posting bit)*

Outstanding! I love the presentation by design rather than blindly following the catalog.

These are great. Very interesting way of presenting the stamps. I think each person has to figure out their own way of organizing. Sometimes chronologically, sometimes by printing technique, etc. This is quite different and I like it.

Thank for the encouragement and interest in my collection.

@stamperix Thanks for the info on the 2c colors. Do you have an article or publication you could point me to on how different shades should look under UV light? Do you know if I need to take them out of the mounts (like you do for checking for tagging on modern stamps)? I'll take a look at some point soon. The Type III Rose Carmine was bought at a Harmer-Schau Auction but does not have a cert. The Type IV Rose Carmine has a Miller cert. . .wonder if I should send both of these in for a PF cert?

@John Becker - good catch on the mistake on the E7 label. I will have to fix that. I do scrap the whole page, mounts included, when I have to fix or update something. I typically fix my InDesign files immediately, but don't always reprint and remount right away. I enjoy mounting stamps, but it gets tedious when there is a lot to do. I wish there were pre-cut 22x27 and 22x28 (or 23x28) mounts. That would save me a lot of time in chopping up strip after strip of mounts.

PSE has written a book called "Philatelic Book of Secrets" which has many interesting chapters, and for some stamps (by far not all classic stamps) they give Pantone colors for the normal light color (which are not always useful) and UV colors for some stamps (which are sometimes useful). There are two volumes of the book, but the 2c 1899 stamps are listed in both of them. You can buy both books as ebook at Amazon. (The Pantone color for rose carmine is given by PSE as 213U-214U)

Yes, you have to take the stamps out of the mounts to check the UV color. In other countries like Australia or Germany, the UV light is a very important tool to check for color differences which can be hard to tell under normal light.

The thing with the pink back I don't remember exactly, where my sources were. I think this is my own conclusion based on several sources. Pink stamps from that 2c issue have a strong pink back sometimes, while other stamps don't, and I think the rose carmine does not.

Indeed, it would be very interesting to know if the PF would certify both stamps as rose carmine.

PS: I don't own any certified 2c rose carmine stamps but I have at least started to sort my 1899 2c stamp in colors :).

@stamperix, I'm now on the lookout for the 2c Brown Orange (279Bi) - none on eBay. . .
