It started here 16 months ago but there is no reply box to continue the topic:

http://goscf.com/t/74341&whichpage=...Terms=russia

In any case today I purchased the last stamps needed for substantial completion. Every major Scott number is included save for two that catalog multiple five figures each. I also added a number of minor numbers and things that interested me.

It has been a blast and I intend to keep going adding varieties and things that add interest.

It feels really good.

I will be scanning every page and posting them here for those interested in looking.

Next step is to remount it all on my own pages and flesh things out and provide more space.

Congratulations, Rogdcam.
Sounds like you are enjoying a happy new year year with your Russia milestone.

You'd mentioned in the earlier thread wishing to have commentary about some of the historical aspects and such, which your Scott album lacked. I find garnering and summarizing either the technical production or the historical subject matter quite enjoyable when creating my own pages. I hope you post some of those custom pages too as they develop over time.

Happy new year.

Congratulations - I've been half heartedly working on 1900-1975 for probably 10 years and may be 75%. For you to get this done in 16 months is amazing.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

Gotta tell you that it was an eye opener as to what the most difficult pieces to locate were. They were not big dollar items. Some of the low cv stamps are extremely hard to locate and I have to wonder what the backstory is as to why. The numbers printed are published and you cannot find any information regarding what happened to the population that should be abundant. Dealers, internet platforms and other collectors do not have them. The values are too low for traditional auction house's and they are not in collections that are sold. Very strange. When you find one and obtain it you feel as if you just scored an inverted jenny.

I will be scanning starting tomorrow. Likely a couple of hundred scans. You will see why I need to remount. I used Scott pages and they are crowded and lacking information. These Russian stamps have rich historical and biographical subject matter and deserve a descriptive layout. Makes it so much more interesting. I estimate a new layout might double the number of pages.

Congratulations Rog! I looked it up in Scott, it looks like 2,000 regular issue stamps. It would be really interesting to see some stats like how many different lots were purchased to put it together, how many different auction houses and dealers. Were they mostly purchased by set? Were any feeder collections used? Much left over duplication? Can't wait to see the photos!

Well done Rog - that is quite an amazing achievement.

I know exactly what you mean with regards to low cv stamps and not being able to find them.
