I acquired a little over 1000 WW stamps and am adding them to my stock pages, organizing reading up - enjoying.

I have been really pleased with the variety and excited to add new stamps to my budding collection. There are a few I am not 100% sure on. Hoping you can help. I will also add to this thread some of my new pages :) - I like to share.

I can't help with the first two, but the third is an early Russian stamp and the fourth is from Hungary. I've been sorting some eastern Europe and issues like these are still fresh in my mind.

The Hungarian is a newspaper stamp; one of three different from 1874-99, depending on the watermark. The cancel is CSORNA from the far northwest of the country.

Thank you, I should have gotten that Russian one - the rest, wow - you guys are quick. I appreciate it - this will help me with knowing where to place them in my book.

A few I have sorted. The largest collection is from Ecuador- I have yet to tackle that (will be fun and interesting). and quite a bit from Germany. of course a lot from Hungary - though there are a lot of very old stamps, so those should be interesting to learn about.

In attempting to put the set of Swedish stamps showing King Gustaf V in order of increasing face value, someone mistakenly put the highest valued one first, probably thinking it's a one ore stamp, when in fact it's a one krona. The lowest face value stamp in that set is the 5 ore green. Incidentally, it's worth checking the 5 ore green for a watermark. If it has a crown watermark it catalogues for $29, without it, only 30 cents. And if you had the 55 ore pale blue or the 80 ore black from that set you'd have some real bucks!

Thank you waddsbadds, nice catch. I really like those stamps - I only had 1 and with this new lot I acquired I got several more. I will check for the watermark - ugh, those darn watermarks that I can't ever seem to see :)

You guys are all so wonderful and helpful.

Ok, I dug into the Ecuador stamps - phew, I ran out of steam around 1950something...

Some really nice stamps and history so far. I see a lot of overprints to learn about as well.

Is this real? If so I assume it's damaged and probably worthless. Not that I care about value, I'm excited to collect and learn :) the cheap lot I bought had it plus a weird Gibraltar stamp which I assume is some printed cut out. No matter fake, real, worthless whatever, I'm loving this.

The Great Britain stamp is the popular penny red of 1864, Scott #33 (or Stanley Gibbons 43) A lot of people collect the different plate numbers, which included most of the numbers from 71 to 225 (75, 126 and 128 were not used, and 77 is exceedingly rare, less than ten copies known to exist) Yours appears to be plate 172, one of the more common ones, but a fun stamp to collect nonetheless. Yours also might appeal to someone who collects their initials in the corners, so if your initials are either BE or EB, you might like it, also, collectors interested in postmarks, yours appears to have been postmarked in Newport, which might be either on the Isle of Wight or in the County of Gwent (formerly Monmouthshire) in South Wales. The Gibraltar one is not a true stamp but appears to be a cutout from either a wrapper or a postal card, both issued in the late 1870's, and would interest collectors of postal stationery. You seem to have a nice start to a collection, and lots of enthusiasm, keep up the good work, you'll never regret getting into this hobby.
