I see sellers on eBay getting $20, $30 or more for basic British stamps used in Gibraltar or any other British Possession.
Is the any publication that can show a listing of the different postmarks fro the different countries.
I have started to make a list from what I see on sales of stamps on eBay.
i.e.
C35 Columbia
C56 Cartegena

Thanks in advance

Columbia Canada or USA?

The town in Panamá is called Colombia, as is the country bordering on Panamá.

From memory, Gibbons's Commonwealth catalogue includes the GB used abroad.

Yes GeoffHa is right. The Gibbons catalogue has a comprehensive listing of GB stamps used overseas.

I just went and took a look on eBay and there are many variations under the heading of

Stanley Gibbons Commonwealth catalog
A whole lot to choose from, but none seem to specify that they show postmarks, is there a web site that has this listing?

One seller on eBay has a photo of a 2015 catalog, and in their description they have a printed date of 1900.
And they are so busy that they cannot answer any emails.

Here is the page I was speaking about

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stanley-Gi...143926993465

I bought a catalog from a seller on eBay and they have it in their description that the photo may not be an actual representation of the item that is for sale.
I did not see that notation, and the photo showed a 2015 edition, what I got was a 1976 edition, and they had the gall to say I should have researched the ISBN number for the proper cover design.

Thanks for posting. Sellers who advertise a 2015 Edition and deliver a 1976 Edition won't get my business. Seller has feedback covering 2 1/2 million transactions.

Yes - a 1976 edition would sell for around £5. Should be returned or refunded - using stock eBay images for different items really isn't on.

I just posted 3 days ago...........
http://goscf.com/t/54589&whichpage=30#687856 br /

Example
C35 Colombia: Panama (Now in Panama)
C/35 India : Guntur, Madras
C36 Peru: Arica (Now in Chile)

C56 Colombia : Cartegena
C/56 India , Secunderabad, Hyderabad.

etc & etc

A great resource, but terribly bound Monograph, glued spine
Very difficult to open, without risking cracking the spine.

I paid $48 AUD shipped.

When I had an eBay account that was the sort of seller I'd avoid at all costs. The neutrals & negatives are a giveaway.
