Beginners collection.

On the Map, above the word "Thrace" near South Bulgaria, is Philippopolis,
named after Philip ll of Macedonia, Alexander the Great's Father.
(Now Plovdiv)

Rod, I like the coloured map. Is it one of yours? If so, which software package did you use to prepare it? If not, where did you "liberate" it from?

Hi Tim,
A Penguin.
CV Possibly $2 ? at a second hand book store.

I find it so very difficult, to handle European History, it is so involved.

Thank you Brian.
I am at sixes and sevens with this discipline.

Probably a very inexpensive set to complete, bar a few in the tens of dollars.

I share Jim's opinion with Thrace Stamps.....

Quote:
Out of the Blue
I feel a bit out of my element with Thrace, with the complicated history, and the possibility that the overprints might be counterfeit. In my view, the entire stamp inventory for Thrace is really specialist's territory. Buried somewhere in the philatelic literature is, no doubt, help for the collector if one is truly interested in the overprinted issues.

Jim's excellent treatment of Thrace.......

Brian, I have a few duplicates,
email me if you want me to pass them on, rather than gather dust here.

Rod, thanks for the tip. I used to own this book as a teenager but I've clearly forgotten what it looked like! Off for a bit of pre-Christmas shopping, as I have some Baltic / Polish history to sort out.

Rod - Great presentation I haven't seen the 1913 overprints before.
Now - I guess we can expect something similar for Eastern Roumelia one of these days?

I'm surprised Kirk,
they seem to pop up regularly for me, perhaps because I collect Bulgaria, and they are often found orphaned Back of book.

I wish! Blaamand. I have only 5 Eastern Rumelia stamps, 2 are forgeries.
That discipline is reserved for the wealthy.
