...Rod, I think the ATM stamps (automaatzegels) indeed are counter stamps from a Hytech machine. The thermal printing tends to fade...


NSK is correct. I was an engineer and Project manger for a number of kiosk and retail devices over the years. As such, I was involved with discovery, testing and implementation of a number of thermal printers.

Thermal print does indeed fade over time and will eventually disappear altogether, it is a matter of time and is the nature of the paper and printing technology in the 1990s and 2000s. (The specification back then was 5-7 years.) I know of no way to stop this from happening so I recommend that collectors digitize their material that has thermal printing.

Cheers Don,
Indeed, I digitise my thermal pieces when identified.
Same with Traders counter print outs, (Hardware shops) etc
when you need receipts for the tax accountant.

If I remember correctly, the top glassine was used at post offices and contained the set of annual Child Welfare (kinderpostzegels) stamps.

The "coded message" is a rebus prize draw related to the Child Welfare stamps:

zes - tig - maal - kinder(en) - postzegel + s = zestig maal kinderpostzegels (sixty times Child Welfare stamps). The Netherlands was the second country to issue Child Welfare stamps, in 1924 (first: 1912 Switzerland, Pro Juventute). They were not issued during the war years 1942 - 1944. 1986, therefore, saw the sixtieth issue.

Fascinating, thanks NSK.

added "rebus" to my lexicon, that was new to me.

One can see that only combinations are mentioned. Single stamps are no longer mentioned. Apparantley the nvph thinks that these stamps no longer exist. These single stamps were only available from booklets and should therefore be mentioned in this section and not anywhere else, let alone not at all.


I, recently, bought a 2015 edition of the NVPH Speciale Catalogus. The individual stamps are listed under the basic stamps in the main catalogue section.

Rod,

I wonder if your 25 cent "Juliana Regina" stamp on page 2 is the original issue. The difference in the reds used for the frame and centre is less pronounced in the 1969 version than it is in the 1973 version.

Below shows the 1973 one and stamp book 9-h at the bottom left of the pane's stub not cover as billsey suggested on page 1. This example is the original stamp printed on phosphor-coated paper. It also exists on "ordinary" paper. Under a uv lamp (I used long wave here), the two phosphor-coated paper types are quite distinct. That of the original printing shows a yellow reaction, the 1973 type turns bright white.

All 25 cent stamps in this series were only issued in stamp books.

Hi NSK
I presume you are referencing
http://goscf.com/t/70915&whichpage=2#684574 br /

Unfortunately, I have no UV Lamp, being in the country, I rarely go to
stamp shows now. Been confused at what to buy from the internet,
hence the status quo.

Indeed I am. The difference between the 1969 25 cents and 1973 25 cents is clear even to the naked eye.

Those in the book are the 1969 ones: the border colour is close to the centre colour. The single stamp is the 1973 one. The border is more pinkish and markedly different from the centre.

Western Australia
The Wreck of the BATAVIA

Made from Trees from Saxony and Lubeck

"I think the oldest tree ring that we have found in a plank comes from a tree that started growing in 1342, and I think from a frame 1340 or so."

She said a ship like the Batavia would use at least 700 trees.
