Sc#259 and 259c
Yet to find the "Pink" issue (Perf.12)
The two varieties, appear not to be afforded a space with Steiner.

That Great Buddha stamp brings back great memories for me. A friend of mine lives in Kamakura, and her family and the family of the priest at K˘toku-in (the temple where the Great Buddha is located) have been close friends for many years. So when I visited Kamakura five years ago, I got special treatment and was able to see some parts of the temple complex that are off-limits to the general public.

Nice story erilatz,
I have seen some huge Buddha images in country Thailand,
they are sight to behold.
Kamakura is cast, which makes it extra special.

Hi, I took a break from my Mexico album and found this one in my World stash. Any information on this stamp? It was with my Burma stamps, however this looks Japanese? Thank you.

Sc#149 1915 A38 3 sen Imperial Throne CV:$1.50
Issued 10th November 1915
Amongst 4 in the set.
Commemorative: The Enthronement of His Majesty the Emperor Taisyo.

Stamp vignette is the Imperial throne, called Takamikura used at the enthronement.
Around the circle enclosing the throne is the pattern on the robe worn at the enthronement.
Bi-colour Typography


Quote:

All (or most) Japanese stamps, show the Chrysanthemum flower Icon (Top Centre)
Always must have 16 petals, otherwise forgeries.

Lovely stamp Nora.
Surprised the stamp colour is so fresh, usually the centre colour (Magenta / Purple) is soiled / degraded by soaking.

Yes! I found it, should have looked harder in my catalogue. The Imperial throne. I think the color is fantastic too. The ceremonial cap Stamp looks interesting too. So many countries to explore...one day, one day I'll have the time and freedom to explore so much more. Thanks Rod.

Hi everyones,

I'm in need of some help. I recently acquired a few pages of Burmese under Japanese occupation stamps.
Could you please let me know what the pencil references are?



Thank you in advance,
