HORNET785 ---- Thanks for that info. didn't see anything in Scott's or Michel on that variety. I will rescan the page with the "long nose " and the regular stamp . Been working on other stuff ,seems like I am falling further and further behind on my WW collection as I keep getting more unusual stuff.

Hello Floortrader.

From memory:

I believe the long nose plate flaw is (first) mentioned in the Schantl catalogue.

Believe it also has the 39 I Plate Flaw number.(recently?)

I also have the flaw I believe a used example. Have to dig it out.

Hi floortrader
The official stamp 20 pf (Bayern coats arms) also shows plate flaw (white line through I and white spot under N in DIENSTMARKEN)

I'm a big fan of Fiji stamps from this era. No, they are neither rare nor are they up to the standards created by engraved and typography stamps c. 1890-1960. But there are a lot of definitives issued during the early Elizabethan period that while not engraved, make an awesome display in an album. Other examples for me would be Falkland Islands, Papua New Guinea, Hong Kong, Malaya, British Honduras, Cayman Islands... there are many others.

SHERMAE ----Since I collect the world ,I try to show a decent variety of material . I grew up with Harris albums from my first 25 cent album until I reach a 64 volume set of Scott Internationals . Now going to Steiners Pages which has cause me to have a few volumes for each country, the one thing that I enjoy no matter what kind of album or how many volumes I have is the enjoyment of filling the whole page with the right stamps .Having seen over 1,000 other stamp collectors collections,again the one thing I enjoy is seeing a full complete page with stamps in their albums .

Great stuff Floortrader. I can see how Steiner pages would be a good fit for how you collect (trying to complete sets with all high values). I assume that the Internationals do not provide spaces for all high values in long sets.

Shermae --- I got tell you a true story about Scott Internationals .

Back in the 1990's Richard Drews {today he is a top APS Judge } owned a stamp store in Chicago and specialised in top quality U.S. material . He also had stamp auctions thru Richard Drews Auctions, again the best of the best of U.S. material.At the end part of his auctions was a very small group of worldwide lots .

I found this to be a golden place to buy worldwide material . The auction room was filled with many top U.S. collectors and dealers ,then at the end I and maybe two people who over slept were still in the room . I got bargins and Rich got rid of the stuff that came along with the collections he purchased ,mostly from estates .

At one auction he had a lot that read 5 volume Scott Internationals 1840 t0 1940 for opening at $4,000 ,which was high . I got the lot at $4,000 . The first four were all regular Scott pages which were filled to the spaces of the album pages . The last volume was filled with blank pages with thousands of stamps that Scott dropped because the stamps were the high values to complete many of the sets or the stamps were to diffcult to be included in the Jr. Internationals. It was worth a lot better price, a golden opportunity all because I just couldn't figure out why they priced it at $4,000 for volumes that should be started about 1/2 of the opening asking price .

Floortrader- sorry I didn't see your post about Richard Drews. That album was certainly a very interesting solution to stamps not pictured in albums like Big Blue. I was actually at Stamp King once. My wife was attending a conference at the Rosemont Convention Center, so I had free time during the day. Richard no long owned the shop, but showed up that day to "coach" the new owner while I was visiting. Was hard to shop- prices were basically full Scott and numerous KGVI varieties for Africa were misidentified. Still, it was the coolest stamp shop I'd ever visited.
