Any more votes? Looks like 'hardcore philately', varietal collecting, and forensic philately are taking the lead. Clever names all. I'll wait a bit more for the weekend voters.

Cheers!

re: VOTE for your favorite term :)

So how will we use Hardcore Philately as a present participle?
"I am hardcorely philatelizing this stamp, trying to determine which variety it is."

I like "stumping." That's what I'm going to use.Big Grin

re: VOTE for your favorite term :)

Here are the results;

The most votes go to Hardcore Philately with Forensic Philately a close second and Varietal Collecting 3rd place. Hardcore Philately wins the imperf block of 4! Woohoo! Applause

So we now have a NOUN to describe this aspect of philately but as Ted points out we need a verb. So in honor of Ted's grammatical observations, "stumping" will get an imperf pair mailed on a cover as a sort honorary mention prize. Party

So, all you 'hardcore philatelists', raise your perf gauges, watermark detectors and UV lights and salute Josh Tanski the clever, witty creator of the term.

And a tip of the tongs to White Buffalo for giving us a handy little verb we can use when scratching our heads trying identify those tricky varieties.

Thanks everyone for joining in to have a little bit of silly fun. All of the entries were winners.


I have your addresses fellas - your prizes will be in tomorrows mail. Congrats!
