Thanks gvol21

As a worldwide collector who has viewed 100's of other people's collections ,especially worldwide collections [ mostly at large public stamp auctions ].Got to understand some of the big gaps in these collections as well in my own collection was the early Spanish Colonies .

As I builded up my Spanish Colonies also notice other areas that were lacking a decent showing in worldwide collections . Over the past few years my goal has been to add those stamps especially in complete sets that rarely come on the market .

floortrader,

I've really been enjoying this thread, especially the Austria pages. For the Steiner pages, are you using 8.5X11 paper or something larger? Is there a particular brand/color paper you use?

Statesman ----I use STAPLES 20lbs Tan paper . For a couple of reasons ,first it is easy to find ,second it is light weight . Third it is cheap ,fourth it can be purchased and stocked up for future use . Years ago I purchase a higher quality International Paper Cream color paper and was using that ,then they discontinued it and had no stock inventory ,as I needed to add extra pages .

Weight becomes a issue with the more binders you have . I recently purchased a Belgium collection in Palo {sp. incorrect } it was 2 binders with pages they cost $200.00 ,but I bought the whole mounted collection for $400.00 with nothing for the binders and pages . So at auction you get little or nothing for expensive binders or pages that you buy .

Statesman -- I finished a nice binder/album of Austria on Steiner Pages recently . Then I seen a ad for a speciallized book on Austria stamps which I just purchased . The book goes into a lot of items not listed in my Scott Classic .

So I am thinking to do a seperate section on Austria on Steiner pages and add a 100 or so blank not printed pages with stamps that the Scott catalog doesn't mention .

floortrader,

I hope you'll post some photos of the non-Scott listed pages once you have them done. If I may ask, what book did you pick up? Besides Scott, I have an older Michel Austria catalogue but haven't done anything with it yet.

floortrader,

Some great pages. Thank you for sharing.

The Victor Emmanuel set gives me a chuckle. Such a serious looking guy framed in all those different colors.

I like the Shah Ahmed set. I picked up some of these in a set of old approval books a couple years ago. For this set I have everything through the 3 Kr stamp. There are a bunch of others, but I've held off doing anything with them because I don't have any resources to help identify the forgeries.
