aviation on stamps blog as I do try to write there most nights. I was sorting through an old album a friend gave me recently and found a few nice looking stamps. I have no catalogue but anyway I doubt they have any useful value. Just thought you would like to see his, and over next few days, I hope, I'll show a few more. If you can tell me anything about these of course I would be most pleased to hear from you. Best wishes.. Michael

Hello, something tonight that proves yet again why Royal Mail is both useless and in need of the security definitives.
I am not a great fan of collecting mint current GB. Anyone can do that but to get some nicely used is more difficult. As this proves. Mailed to myself from England. And not franked through the mail. I will rectify that of course :-)
best wishes .. Michael

Hello, just something a bit different tonight because I read this in the news. Used but not used stamp in the picture. Panic buying GB Stamps
Think of all those "collectors" with mint stamps they purchased. Time to start using them maybe :-) Or will we see an rise in the number of people reusing stamps. Even the security issues are reused. I know it is illegal but I have received mail where the stamp used was closely cut and glued back onto another letter. Of course if you live in Hong kong you really don't think of that as the postage is very affordable by comparison to many countries, UK in particular.
Enjoy and don't panic buy. :-)

Hello, Something different tonight. Sorting through lots of world mix today I found a nice selection of stamps from France. These are just three I thought I would show you. Why, well because I really liked them, and the others I found. What stunning designs, artwork, engraving probably. It had me thinking, you don't see this quality in a stamp design anymore, generally, do you.
I have no catalogue with me to refer to so I cannot tell you anything about the stamps. I just enjoy seeing them. Hope you do.

Hello, sorry, been away and little time to write although I have done some more stamp sorting. Lots of nice quality used Machin security copies and more stamps in my childrens' corner collection.
I have been looking at Machin security issues on eBay and you can buy the odd one, plus postage and pay a fair price when everything is added up. Look at what you get from me CDDSTAMPS SECURITY MACHIN COLLECTION this from my entry to the Great Britain Philatelic but I will send you a collection of 27 used stamps 2009 - 2011, nicely cut on paper for US $25.00, all identified and including postage and packing plus I will include a few extra of the Large Format 1st and 2nd class stamps, identified of course . Now that is a lovely collection to get you started.
Also, for children collecting I am sending 100 or thereabouts free stamps to children and new collectors, I pay postage. Please be honest. I have been sorting lots of stamps I received from an old friend. Completely random pick from a large box. Just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org subject "free stamps" with your mailing address. This offer is special and only applies to first 10 emails but don't let that hold you back
An Easter treat I hope......... Best wishes ... Michael
