back again...........

Hello, how time flies.. seem to have lost a week somewhere.. but am back :-) some days / weeks ago I showed you a GB 1966 Christmas stamp with error – missing T… well one of my readers has written giving me some information about this and I thought I would share it with you.

This variety used to be listed in the SG Elizabethan Catalogue along with many other varieties. Sadly this catalogue is no longer available, but my reader friend has the 1977 edition and the missing 'T' is listed as variety number V82. Catalogue value then was £1.50 whereas the ordinary stamp was 8p - I wonder what it is worth today ? a lot I hope……… :-)

There used to be a good trade in this sort of error or variety, in fact the old Elizabethan Catalogue lists 372 varieties up to 1977. It's a pity SG don't seem to list this sort of thing nowadays.

Anyone have a copy of this catalogue? Please email me at

Now to some current stamps.

I received a letter from a wonderful friend in the UK who saves stamps for me from the office and from home mail. Lots of the security issues now starting to come through. This grouping I particularly like. Nice to see a Post Office using stamps rather than those stupid printed labels :-)

Enjoy your stamps... Michael

The SG Specialised includes the varieties previously listed in the Elizabethan.

My 1984 edition lists the missing T as W109c (ordinary) at £1 and WP109b (phosphor) also at £1.

My Elizabethan is 1968!

And the three 1£ rosines are very nice. A fitting testimonial to the effects of inflation.
