I am starting to dabble in Panama - especially the early used issues, like the map overprints

BeeSee is a lost cause,
he loves all stamps, he is on the cusp of
being a stamp collector, to becoming a stamp hoarder :)

3 more beautiful examples of engraved stamps.
Really like the borders used in stamps during the early 20th century.

Scandinavian countries did a lot of great engraved stamps between 1960s and 1980s.

What would everyone like to see?
I am a big fan of engraved stamps and have quite a few scanned.
How is this to start?



Image size OK or could be bigger/smaller?

Lovely stamp Anthony, I really like local crafts and customs shown on stamps. A glimpse of another culture. There are lots of engraved stamp fans on this forum - you have probably noticed!
I think that's a great scan, Rod will be along later to cast his professorial eye over it

You read my mind

The quality of scans on the forum is fantastic!
and improving all the time.
We all get to see some lovely work by designers and engravers.

Welcome AnthonyUK !

I see you use Flickr.com and, for me on dial-up, it doesn't time-out and lose three quarters of the image, expecting you to be on hi-speed.

Beautiful! Thanks for asking from all of us on dial-up connection.

Many thanks. It is a pleasure to share and be in the company of like-minded folk.
Glad to hear Flickr is OK too.
I'll have to search for the original thread unless duplication isn't an issue or it has been a while since it was active :)
Here is one of my favourites. Simple but delightful.

I wouldn't worry too much about the occasional duplicate, but it is worth finding the original thread, anyway, for the great material.

I also love these steel engraved/recess/intaglio (whatever name you use)little works of art.

Here are a few from Sweden's master court engraver Czeslaw Slania.

I've never seen those enlarged...spectacular.

This gets repeated every few months, but there are lots a new faces here, so it bears repeating that he could engrave ten lines in a millimeter. Think about that...

Austria also produced some nice stamps and they had many excellent engravers.
On the bottom right is the name of the engraver and on the left the designer.





















I hope I'm overloading the site with too many images.
