One of my top favorite areas of the world are U.S. Revenues and my favorite of them are the Bi-color issues of 1871-1872 . To me they are without equal for design and execution of any engraved stamps. Hopefully this coming weekend I will be adding 4 higher value revenues which are all very hard to come by.
Shown are the first three pages of the issues.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

Today one of the most popular areas for collecting German Colonies Only issued for around 20 years the designs were the same for all of the colonies. The first issues were contemporary German stamps with overprints and the second and last issues were the very popular Kaiser Yacht's. Shown are 3 page from different colonies.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

Today is what I consider the top country in the world to collect. I've heard that there was a time when 90% of the population collected stamps. There is so much depth in so many areas which makes Germanyone of the most difficult countries to pursue. My collection for regular issues is 99.87% complete and semis are 99.67% thru 1988, but I have a long way to go with German states and Colonies, B.O.B. and the many stamps that are not listed by Scott.
The first two pages are shown as well as the fourth

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

I rarely get a chance (or moreso the inclination) to be serious on these boards. But I have to say that I am extremely grateful for your posts here. I actually find myself sometimes just endlessly looking at these beautiful stamps, so nicely displayed, even when many are "the same thing with just different colors and numbers" as my wife would say.

As I prepare to plunge into my endless hoard yet again this long weekend, I think I'll take some inspiration from you. Instead of just reorganizing into more and more envelopes and boxes (still without a single stamp attached to a single page...) I'm going to focus on one actual can-do project like creating a couple pages with some kind of rational theme.

Thanks again for sharing with us. These submissions are truly amazing.

Cheers.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

Avi & Dgp, Thanks so much for your very kind words. This type of appreciation means a lot to me. It's a lot of work but nearly every day brings something new. I believe the site can well be used by collectors for identification, sorting etc. Also to inspire people into collecting or getting collectors into something new. Of course you can view the entire collection anytime and not just a couple selected pages everyday. Try openig a country thumbnail index the next time you are going to sort, you should find it helpful in mant ways. I firmly believe that I show more classic (pre 1980) stamps than any other place on the net. I have searched long and hard seeing what others have and I show more. There are several other well known sites that are using my scans (mostly with my approval) My site is also the quickest to find what you are looking for. Just a couple clicks and you are there. Most all of the other site require you to do a lot more clicks and opening of new pages to get where you want. At first I did not think of my site as getting as big as it is. It was out together very simply but it kind of got out of hand. I'd like to have a search function and some other additions but it would take me forever to do those changes now. Except for the addition of stamps there will probably not ever be any big changes to the site.
The link to the site is always at the bottom of my posts. There is also an index of countries which most people use. Just click on the A-Z link on the opening page.

For today The Dutch Indies
Most of the Dutch Colonies are quite hot right now.
Shown are the first two pages of regular issues and the first page of Semi-Postals.

David, Thanks, I keep wanting to improve my Dutch colonies and search them every week. Problem seems to be that they are quite popular now. The auction prices realized are most often a much higher percentage of catalog than most other areas. I will probably have to wait for it to cool down before I add much.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

I rarely get a chance (or moreso the inclination) to be serious on these boards. But I have to say that I am extremely grateful for your posts here. I actually find myself sometimes just endlessly looking at these beautiful stamps, so nicely displayed, even when many are "the same thing with just different colors and numbers" as my wife would say.

As I prepare to plunge into my endless hoard yet again this long weekend, I think I'll take some inspiration from you. Instead of just reorganizing into more and more envelopes and boxes (still without a single stamp attached to a single page...) I'm going to focus on one actual can-do project like creating a couple pages with some kind of rational theme.

Thanks again for sharing with us. These submissions are truly amazing.

Cheers.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

Avi & Dgp, Thanks so much for your very kind words. This type of appreciation means a lot to me. It's a lot of work but nearly every day brings something new. I believe the site can well be used by collectors for identification, sorting etc. Also to inspire people into collecting or getting collectors into something new. Of course you can view the entire collection anytime and not just a couple selected pages everyday. Try openig a country thumbnail index the next time you are going to sort, you should find it helpful in mant ways. I firmly believe that I show more classic (pre 1980) stamps than any other place on the net. I have searched long and hard seeing what others have and I show more. There are several other well known sites that are using my scans (mostly with my approval) My site is also the quickest to find what you are looking for. Just a couple clicks and you are there. Most all of the other site require you to do a lot more clicks and opening of new pages to get where you want. At first I did not think of my site as getting as big as it is. It was out together very simply but it kind of got out of hand. I'd like to have a search function and some other additions but it would take me forever to do those changes now. Except for the addition of stamps there will probably not ever be any big changes to the site.
The link to the site is always at the bottom of my posts. There is also an index of countries which most people use. Just click on the A-Z link on the opening page.

For today The Dutch Indies
Most of the Dutch Colonies are quite hot right now.
Shown are the first two pages of regular issues and the first page of Semi-Postals.

Beautiful stamps, Mitch. I love your first issue of the colony.

re: A'Ra's Pge of the Day Part V

David, Thanks, I keep wanting to improve my Dutch colonies and search them every week. Problem seems to be that they are quite popular now. The auction prices realized are most often a much higher percentage of catalog than most other areas. I will probably have to wait for it to cool down before I add much.

Today showing Danzig. Following WW I Danzig was made a free city state in 1920. It was taken by Germany early in WWII. Shown are the first page plus a couple other regular issue pages and an attractive semi-postal page.
