Dear Steven ,
Welcome to Newsletter 48.
Some news on the PNG Front-
PNG: Additions to the 2014 K.130 Overprints.
The orchid overprint differs from the previously stamp in the use of red for the value.
I have been advised that this was a "misprint from the beginning". I understand this to mean that it wasn't as easy to read so they changed it to the bolder numbers.
Newly Discovered Version
Newly Discovered Stamp
This is a new value that was
overprinted at the time. I think
there is still one more out there
This Fiji card was apparently prepared by someone who wanted to document their world travels by means of a postcard. It was the early 20th Century version of a selfie.
Modern documents that use either revenue stamps or postage stamps for revenue use have always been intriguing to me.
I am highlighting three recent acquisitions
from St. Helena:
Motor Cycle Policy
Registered Land Ordinance (Rental agreement)
These are complete documents
Other items this month are:
1. Ireland Railway stamps.
2. Easter Island meters
3. And a NZ pigeon gram stamp
We have updated postmarks from St. Helena, Samoa and Guyana as well.
Please enjoy, critique, and comment as always, I enjoy it !
