cddstamps on stamps

my thoughts on stamps, stamp collecting, philately in general and maybe a few other topics !

Hello, just one stamp tonight from Ceylon because I really like the colour and thought you might enjoy it too.

SG 336 bright magenta with the War Stamp overprint.  Often seen with faded colour due being soaked. But this copy seems good to me.

Tonight tip then is not to soak older stamps in too hot water or for too long, especially if they have a useful catalogue value. :-)

Enjoy your collecting  

Best wishes.... Michael
