Thanks Ryan,
Would you be willing to say how much you paid?
There is a signed copy of the Bernadotte book on eBay at the moment but it is too expensive for me.

I think it was £52 plus shipping from Britain to Canada. Seemed reasonable to me, I had set the sniper to bid at £80+.

Damn, too late to get it blocked at customs

Good price though considering the shipping too.

Something happened to that 4-franc parcel stamp...not very impressive at all...the preview looked fine.

I'll try the 5-franc...

I like those Chinese ones BeeSee. Actually the PRC has issued some very well designed stamps and excellent printing too.

This Unofficial SS shows reprints of 3 values from the 1922 composer set.
The Austrian State Printers produced it using the original plates but different colours.
The engraver was Prof F. Schirnböck who also engraved the Bosnia & Herzegovina landscape stamps of 1906.

There is debate whether Collin's "7c Temple of heaven"
was engraved by the American L J Hatch.
I have seen a banknote of Polk by Hatch, anyone aware
of any American postage stamp engraved by L J Hatch?
Thanks

Here's an interesting article on engravers of stamps. It includes Machin and Slavia. I didn't know that Paul McCartney was a designer. He did a set of stamps as well. The rest of the site isn't bad either. Nice article on the history of the stamps.

There is some good stuff there Donna, thanks.
I always like new info about stamp designers & engravers since there isn't much available.

Paul notates his hobbies as.."Vicars" and "Stamp collecting"
