For Cuba, it would be Scott # 308-310 for rotary press printing.
For Philippines it would be Scott # 461 for rotary press printing.

For Canadian stamps, there is a booklet entitled "Canadian Postage Stamps Printed by the Stickney Rotary Press".

I just found out after searching that the engraved stamps of German protectorate/occupied Bohemia and Moravia perforated 12.5 were printed by the Stickney rotary press which means that the infamous dictator A.H. has his portrait on Stickney rotary press stamps such as Scott # 68-83, 90, B9-B12, B18-B19. This is in addition to U.S. Presidents on U.S. Stickney rotary press printed stamps, Kings on Stickney rotary press printed Belgian, Canadian and Swedish stamps and politicians and leaders on Stickney rotary press printed Czechoslovak and Cuban stamps. How did A.H. get to be on Stickney rotary press printed stamps? Czechoslovakia had been using this press from 1925 to 1958. Thus, when the Germans occupied Bohemia and Moravia from 1939 to 1945, they used the same printing press that was there to print stamps. The interesting and exciting thing about philately is that one never stops learning something new as well as sharing it with other philatelists.

Here are two similar and interesting articles on Benjamin Rollin Stickney who invented the Stickney rotary press:

Quote:
The Stickney Press was coveted by many other countries, providing another source of revenue for the United States. In 1919, accompanied by his 16-year-old son Malcolm, Rollin made one of several journeys overseas for the installation of Stickney machines, the first of which was in Sweden. They also visited Denmark, England, and France. Other trips for installations were made to Belgium, Canada, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Italy, and Mexico.


No Stickney presses in Mexico or Italy?!

Hi, jogil - Let me inform you that two Stickney presses were used in Czechoslovakia and refer you to what I said on them in my posts of 01/19/2012 07:55 am and 01/20/2012 08:28 am on pp. 58 and 59 respectively of the Collecting by Engraver thread:

"The very first Czechoslovak rotary press stamps were the 1925 President Masaryk definitives printed by a newly-purchased U.S.-made Stickney press. Another Stickney was bought in the early 1930s and remained in operation until 1959 while the first had been donated to North Korea in the 1950s."

"Specific printing presses have never been mentioned in info on new issues."

Regards,

Florián

florian: It would appear that all stamps that were printed by the Stickney rotary press were wet printed in that the paper web roll was gummed after printing. An exception is Canada Scott/Unitrade 195d which was dry printed in that the paper web roll was gummed before printing (pre-gummed). This stamp should be of interest to those who study stamp printing.

There's a decent write-up on Stickney and the Stickney Press in
United States Stamps 1922-26 by Gary Griffith
ISBN 10: 0940403757 #8260; ISBN 13: 9780940403758
Publisher: Linns Stamp News, 1997

Had it on the shelf for a good 10 years and I just read it about a month ago.

jconey: Thanks for posting about this book since this book would also cover some of the most valuable Stickney rotary press printed coil waste and sheet waste stamps.

Galeoptix - Rein, basing my reply on recent interviews given by Mr. Bedřich Housa, this is my reply:

In 1961, the Czechoslovakian Posts donated a reconditioned Stickney rotary press to the Posts of North Korea. The engraver Bedřich Housa and two printers went to the country to reassemble the machine and put it into operation. Mr. Housa recalls to have spent less than a year in North Korea and to have engraved the first stamp to be printed on it (see Newsletter 4/2017 - PTC Praha, a.s. on http://expo-net.blogspot.cz/search?...x-results=15 ).

The question is whether the stamp was issued and if so, which one it was. Considering the gap in Mr. Housa's work for the Czechoslovakian Post (his last two stamps for Czechoslovakia were issued on March 6, 1961 and his first after his return appeared on Feb. 5, 1962 ), he will have returned home for Christmas 1961 even though in an interview for his 90th birthday he had said he had been there at the end of the 1950s, after the Korean war.

North Korea continued to print her engraved stamps on the Stickney rotary press in the 1960s.

Zdravím,

Florián

Does anyone know of any U.S. experts on the Stickney rotary press stamps? I know that Louis Repeta was one of the experts.
