Brickbats to the Scott Cataloguing system

Just spent 30 minutes finding 1 stamp
I knew : It was 1996, (June 6th) it was 80 yen Philatelic week, and the prints by Moronobu.
Easy peasy ? ...not on your life.

Hi rodd222.
In my old 2010 std. it's just a notation, no pics.
Try Sc.# 2418 - 2421a ;)

PS...From type A206, 1948, Nov 6th. Sc.# 422, might help.

Thanks Jad,
also in Scott, just a notation

Scott in their wisdom has included it amongst the 1994 issues.
Whomever does the descriptors for Scott and Japan, earns a gong from me.

Sakura has it as "1996 Philatelic Week", Scott shows a differing image for that.

Scott hiearchy listings goes, 1994 1994, 1995, 1995, 1995, 1996, 1994, 1994 and onwards

I just realized I misunderstood your post & you had already probably found it..... Long day here mate ;)

Mine has the picture of the earlier design, & with pretty much the same notation as you posted & mixed in with the 1994 issues

All's good, Jad.
Just starting to organise Japan, before mounting.
Started with a pile of about 1000, and it can be like pulling teeth to catalogue as Japan has a hit and miss attitude with dating stamps.

Then there are the Prefectures.

My results for Moronobu thus far ..................
Have to transpose the Gibbons number also, I am now employing Scott as a preference.

Sharing what I believe to be my Older Japanese stamps :). I have been focused on my Mexico collection and have not gotten to categorize these. Just felt like sharing and adding to the thread - these may not even be Japanese - but I assume they are... as well as being common - They are eye catching to me.

Yes, Nora, all Japanese.
May be common, but hold a lot of intracasies for study
I am only learning, so beyond me, but there are lots of threads here
for the "Koban" series.

I am just sorting and cataloguing, will probably take a month.

Hi Rod,
Pardon my technological ignorance, but would you explain your cataloguing system? I assume those are scans of individual stamps. What are they superimposed upon, and how do you enter the ID information? Lovely to look at, but rather time-consuming, I should imagine. Do you keep a record of all your stamps this way? Surely that must make several hundreds of thousands, no?

Hi Eric.
Yes
The payoff comes when a country is nearing completion.
1 click gets you every stamp you want.
Your naming regime opted for, returns the result
There are tricks, copy and paste names, just alter the suffix, or the cat number.
Using our SCF member "Postmaster GS" (Free) "stamp fix"
That automatically deskews, and crops the images
40 stamps takes me about 30 minutes.

Using this method, one has the entire stamp collection at your fingertips.

Another irritating item from the Scott descriptor
The stamp offers the scientific name, but no, the descriptor offers his own opinion, and what is that? ..."Tortoise"

So what do we have here, a Turtle or a Tortoise

Sc#1203 1975

Rod,

Just read through the 11/14/2019 thread in which you and PostmasterGS work through some of the difficulties you had encountered with his software. Think I understand better now the process you're using to catalogue your material. The result is certainly impressive.

Eric

Thank you Eric, nice words.
Kudos goes to Postmaster GS, fabulous piece of software,
I donate a small sum every year for its use.
Possibly one of my most used philatelic items.

It can be clunky to use, for us,one finger typists, but I am glad I persisted,
Once mastered, is a fabulous tool for the Image Philatelist.

Sometimes I crop and deskew 100's of stamps I originally scanned 10 years ago, when I began.

We have a Ryukyu black-breasted leaf turtle. Or as the katakana to the right of the scientific name call it, a Ryűkyű yamagame (literally "Ryukyu mountain turtle").

But the Japanese word kame that appears in yamagame can mean either "turtle" or "tortoise".

Again, thanks erilatz, translation error.
The stamp scientific name as shown, is now incorrect, it is now binomial. (1992)
