Ken ----My albums all have stuff mounted with that overlap ,some are color ,some are perf differences and if the catalog has type differences .The perfs and types will have something written next to it ,but color I leave that to sight only.

The problem with color is not knowing if it is a true color due to different printings or a chemical changling ,without some 150 different specialized stamp Catalogs ,I just mount all of them and let someone else figure it out when I am gone .

I do something similar with shade/color differences, but I write "shade" or "color" very small (in pencil) just below the stamp so it's visible. That way, even I can remember what that extra stamp is doing there.

Mine rarely go in the margins as I think this makes an album look really sloppy really fast. More often, I put them in a blank space often at the bottom of the page. Occasionally, I've added an entire blank page for color/shade differences. I use International albums for the bulk of my world collection, and those albums are pretty limited in that regard unlike European albums which often include multiple spaces for varieties of the same stamp including colors.

I don't put ordinary duplicates on my album pages, and I would never put second copies beneath stamps in the way a lot of collectors used to do and maybe still do. It creates a mess and it bulks up the pages a lot, making them heavier and unwieldy. And you can't even see those stamps, so what is the point? I just think you have to decide which copy you prefer and consign any others to a stock book, a glassine, or another album. Most of my collections are either on Scott Specialty pages or, when those are not available, on home-made pages I've printed on Scott Specialty blank page and put into Scott binders. So they "look like" Scott Specialty pages. All the duplicates and others go into my Scott International albums -- which solves a lot of my "what to do with duplicates" problem. Duplicates beyond that, the ones that are't shade or other varieties, I'd just give away -- someday -- to keep the clutter under control. Either that or drown in my stamps weeks before my wife can find me. Now there's a thought.

Drew -- Congratulations on your 1,000 posting .

Each collectors has their own method of keeping their collection which works for them . I don't put duplicates in my albums ,I just keep a second set of albums . As you do ,I do the same with small penciled notes .

I just redo the page when I run into something I want to add, such as a shade variety. Here's an example from my Sweden collection, the Carmine shade at the top isn't called out in Scott (it is in Facit), though the pink and rose are:

Bill ---Nice page ,agree with the way you put that page . There is a important point you bring up when you collect beyond what your catalog says . I guess the correct answer is write it up and mount it in your album and come back to it at a later date when your research or other catalogs become available.

I avoid a lot of problems by using quality stock books rather than printed albums. I can then keep as many color varieties as I like, arranged however I like. Also perf varieties, used and unused copies, interesting cancellations, etc. Always plenty of room.

It's true that once you invest in printed albums it wouldn't make much sense to change, not for a collection so large. And in any case, yours on Steiner pages are some of the nicest I've seen to date. Keep posting images of them, Floortrader; they're an inspiration to the rest of us.
