I would be interested in a list of the existing stamps (between 1995 and 2011) that deal with the invention of the telephone and all that is related to it (inventors, technology, long distance, cell phone, calling cards, help lines etc) I used to be a ATA member (in the 1980s) and I have an old list of those stamps. I would also be interested in covers that carry phone messages. Thanks!

Welcome Zazou.

When I first saw your post, I was going to recommend ATA, but I see you're already familiar with them.

I haven't seen many topical lists being shared on SCF, but there are several topical collectors on SCF. I'm sure there is someone here that shares your interest in telephones.

If you haven't already, hop over to the Introduction forum and post an intro there also. It will give everyone a chance to "meet" you and learn more about your collecting interests.

Welcome Zazou.

Romania :
Inauguration of the mobile phone network.





Canada :
The first ever mobile phone is mooted,
widely dismissed as lunacy.

For starters, if you check the Freestampcatalogue, just using the heading Telephones, you will find 77 listed entries from 1995 to now:

Not a stamp, but a memo pad cover that I happened to come across that must date back to the late 1950's or early 1960's. Thought some might find it interesting on this post:



Back to stamps, though, I always chuckle at this 1940 slogan cancel from Southern Rhodesia "It is Quicker to Telephone". Nice way to encourage people NOT to use the postal system.

I don't know because I didn't do any research for the last 15 years but would be interested in those covers and postmarks. They would fit perfectly in my collection!...
