cddstamps on stamps

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

Hello, one new stamp, one of 5 new Machins actually to be issued on 20th March.

This to let you know we are leaving for the UK in 5 days and all orders from our cddstamps online store will be mailed from the UK. So you will get VERY fast delivery if you are in the UK and much faster delivery for US, Canada and Europe. I think even Australian / NZ customers will get faster delivery.

AND if you collect GB we will be using the new rate Machins or RAF commemoratives (also to be issued on 20th March) on the letters.

AND we will be getting the stamps hand franked. Hopefully ensuring some nice stamps on your letters and not the scribbled pen cancels we so often see these days from Royal Mail. Hope to see a rush of orders before we leave :-) if you want Machins rather than RAf commemoratives (or visa versa) on your letters, just email me before we leave at

Perhaps you can fill a few gaps in your collection from us at

Best wishes, enjoy your stamps, and especially our online store. Michael cddstamps

On the subject of pen-cancels, see

And on the subject of the RAF stamps....

Your readers may be interested to know that the airmail rate stamps are valid for specific postage rates for only 5 days, 20-25 March.

As modern postal history, any up to 100g letters to Europe or 20g letters to the rest of the world are worth keeping. I know several collectors who will be looking for proper solo use.
