cddstamps on stamps

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

Hello again. I was sorting some Regional Great Britain stamps this afternoon and decided to have a look at them under the UV light. I found this difference for the 1999 - 2000 Scottish Lion 1st Class issue. My Specialised SG catalogue only has a 2 phosphor band issue mentioned SG S95. These have never been an area I have been knowledgeable of and I realise I do not have another more detailed catalogue. Can anyone tell me the SG catalogue reference for the non phosphor (it looks non phosphor) copy. I checked Scott and they do not have it either. Or am I being confused and missing something obvious and embarassing myself completely :-) I welcome comments. Michael enjoy discovering new things with your stamps.

The phosphor on used - and soaked - stamps is often affected by the soaking, especially in hot water. No non-phosphor 1st class stamps were issued, although the brightness has varied over the years.
