Kirk I feel the same way looking at many of Swedish single
colour stamps of the 1970s, like the set engraved
by Czeslaw Slania below.
The Swedish Stamp Printing Works had excellent engravers but so were the printing presses,
the print techniques and the high quality standards.

stamp_nut Jean de Vos was certainly another great
engraver and he seem to excel at doing portraits.
I really like the Scott B957 Camille Lemonnier.

Belgium was another country I was interested in years ago but
I only have a few.

Yes, that one impressed me as well. It is quite a large stamp too (38x50mm).


Quote:
I believe he is the engraver with the most stamp engravings to his name. Living, that is. He hasn't broken Slania's record yet.


800+ up to 2016. When I read how many stamps Mörck had engraved so far, I thought he would have no trouble breaking Slania's record. Seems to be unlikely now. What a shame.



Quote:
he (Slania) was prepared to immigrate to Canada to engrave
for the Canadian Bank Note Co.


In fact, Slania applied for employment there, but the Canadian authorities refused to grant him a visa.

Anyway, here are a few more from Jean de Vos from my rapidly growing collection of engraved stamps.

Please read: We are at 232 pages in this current thread...many posts and images were generated before the Photobucket fiasco..many images since lost in the process. Should we consider starting a new thread that would be more current and reliable as far as content and images are retained. Most of us still have our inventories of images...i am not suggesting that we try and replicate past posts.
Sadly..they are history. And I feel it's time to move forward and continue this discussion under a new banner..."Engraved Stamps Redux"..or whatever title you think would be appropriate.It will also give us the opportunity to add more info that may not have been included in the original post. I got motivated to renew my interest in stamps thanks to this forum and the engravers thread..thanks to all the contributors I have acquired hundreds of stamps and forked out a sizeable amount of money doing so..not to mention binders and stock sheets...at the end of the day..worth every penny.This thread keeps attracting new members and posts..providing a great database of information and images. I have formed friendships with some members off site...not only is there a discussion of stamps..i even get weather reports in parts of Europe and below the Equator!So I welcome your comments on how or if we should face change..or keep riding on the same bus??

If you are collecting Jean de Vos, don't overlook the Christmas mini-sheets he did for Rwanda. I'm sure that they were only produced to make money for the country but, who cares? As engravings they are superb.








Graphis, my preference would be to keep going as is. The old posts will still keep coming up in searches and many of them have images. Also much of the information that has been posted may never get posted again.

I agree with graphis and maybe even add separate folders
for individual engravers.

I have been following this topic and reading the posts that include images with great enjoyment. I have always put stamps I particularly like that I came across in their own collection - the idea of doing so by production process appeals to me and would also add structure to my little collection

I would love to see the earlier posts re-posted with their images which have now vanished.

On another forum I followed a thread which was similarly destroyed, which detailed the techniques used to build a very impressive model railway layout. Without images the descriptions of how the poster went about his work were meaningless, and he felt that the work to replace the images was too much for him to contemplate - it was literally hundreds of posts often with several images to each post

I know it's a lot of work but if some people could re-post favourite or what they felt were their most informative earlier posts I for one would appreciate it and for me it would make sense to have a new topic as when I looked back it seems that posts with images only start around the 220th page

Hi crispinhj

I'm glad that you enjoy this thread and yes it is a pity
that so many images are no longer visible.

I started doing that yesterday for pages 174 to 179.
It took almost 3 hours for those six pages.
Since I have hundreds of lost images it would be
quite a chore and I'm not sure I'm up to doing that.
And even if I replaced all of mine there would be still
hundreds more missing if other forum members choose
not to replace their lost images or don't have them
stored on a hard drive.

It is a problem for sure.

graphis, you sure got a lot of new beauties there.

I like all the Laotian but especially Scott#64 Issued 1959.

It is amazing when you consider the French Govt Printer
used only 3 colours at a single pass through the press to produce this.

About the Cuban stamps of the mid-20th century...

I dont' know who was the engraver of those Cuban stamps of 1943 (posted by graphis, page 229).
In those years the engraving of dies and plates were made in Philadelphia by Security Bank Note Co., and the stamps were printed in Cuba.
The SBNC contracted the engraving of stamps dies with different engravers that worked in other companies (BEP, Columbian Bank Note Co) and they did these works in their free time.
But in 1947 the SBNC hired Edward R. Grove (BEP engraver), who worked with them until 1962 and engraved many Cuban stamps of those years.

Cuba - 1948
International Leprosy Congress
Engraved by Security Bank Note Co.
Printed by Compańia P. Fernández S.A. - Habana
Engraved by Edward Ryneal Grove (1912-2002)
