Hello, two weeks have passed since I last wrote. I cannot believe it. What have i been doing you may wonder. Well in 7 days time I will reveal all. A really interesting and what I think has been a creative project. I did look through a few stamps and found some of my Mauritius stock. All now listed in the cddstamps online store. For the thematic collector perhaps the early QE II Bird issues will appeal. I hope you enjoy seeing these whether you collect Mauritius or birds on stamps. All new listings have both SG and Scott catalogue references. Enjoy your stamps Michael

Hello, well it is now June.. I cannot believe another month has gone. Just like that! but to is one I hope you enjoy seeing. I was sorting GB Regionals and I found some lovely cancels. This is from Scotland, SG S95 (Scott #15) and I think a rather nice cancel. Not 100% as the date is not entirely clear but it is a year 2000 cancel, and from Edinburgh. Many collectors look for cancels and such as this are often hard to find given the way the postal services use cancelling machines with adverts and lots of wavy lines. ok and pen cancels. :-) Just one of the reasons to look at cddstamps online store and select the cancel you want as we try hard to list nice stamps like this. Enjoy your stamps, have a great philatelic weekend .... Michael
