Quality Check Part III

Hello, actually not so much about quality but more about knowing what you are looking at. I got the idea for this from the emails and comments received to previous articles, so thanks to you all for responding.

This is about having a good catalogue. I am certainly not the first to say this and I won't be the last but you must have a good catalogue. Since I was showing GV in previous articles and since I saw this catalogue today I thought I would share it with you in case you are not aware of it, or are looking for a Christmas present for yourself :-)

Issued a few weeks ago now by SG and available at £39.95. This catalogue is the standard reference work for specialist collectors of the "Four Kings" period of British Philately, from 1902-1952. Background information is given for all issues, with full details of plate markings, sheet arrangements, inks, papers and shades, with helpful guidance on identification. Essays, proofs and colour trials are listed and priced. Many plate flaws are illustrated and priced as are shades not listed in the GB Concise catalogue. Detailed listings of control numbers and marginal plate markings are provided. Booklet panes, postage dues, officials and Channel Island occupation issues are all fully listed. Appendixes cover perforators, booklets, specimen overprintsw, protective underprints and inland postage rates. Prices are given for mounted, unmounted and fine used examples for the period from 1902 to 1935 and for unmounted and used thereafter. On cover prices are also given for Edward VII issues. More details at Stanley Gibbons

Best wishs.... Michael
