Time to start a new thread. This will probably be the last thread of World wide regular issues and then I'll move on to WW Semi Postals and Airmails.

To start this thread off I'm showing Iceland today. Shown are the first page and a few more of the earliest pages. This collection got as far as I could go in reasonably completing it several years ago. I ended up selling many of the more valuable early ones.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

I'm always surprised at how 'modern' some classic stamps appear. The Sigurdsson cameos always struck me as having an almost '60s feel.

For today another beautiful French colony from Africa; Upper Senegal and Niger. The first set is probably my favorite issue used in several of the colonies. The first set of Postage Due are also some of the best
Shown are the only 3 pages from the colony

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

For today the Portuguese colony of Macao. Yesterday I got in a bidding war for the first set. It was complete and cataloged for close to $1,500. I'm regretting that I did not keep going because I'm pretty sure the other guy would have quit pretty soon. I Rather doubt I will see another one where I could win at a price anywhere near that one did.
Shown are 3 of the first 4 pages. Crying

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

I posted this country yesterday but for some reason it has disapeared, so I will try again.
I's the British colony of British Honduras. As with many of my British colonies it has not been worked much so is rather spotty but still probably worth showing.
Shown are the first two pages and another latter one.

The country for today is Turkey. I spent sometime working on Turkey last year adding many stamps and new pages. I have a bit to do in the 1950's before I can continue scanning and updating the site up into the 90's which are near complete.
Shown are the first three pages and a couple later ones.

Michael, I never thought that someone would have deleted it. Just wondered if there was another known reason or if it had happened to anyone else. After making over 200 posts on the "page of the day" threads, I've never noticed it happening before.

Received a couple of auction lots today so I thought I'd show them. The first is the one and only Semi Postal set from Mozambique. Issued in 1920, I've always thought it was quite nifty but only had one of them before now.
The second is a 1947 semi postal sheet from Monaco featuring Prince Louis II

Thanks Mike.

For today the British Colony of Ceylon. A fairly tough country to collect and my collection shows that and consequently needs much work. In fact it borders on what I feel is worth showing as will be the rest of the countries I show to finish off the thread.

Shown are the first page plus a few others.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Ralph, They are very pretty pages as are mot of the colonies. They are not all that expensive but you really need to get them in complete sets. I like getting complete sets like this from auction lots more pages the better. Otherwise paying a dealer top dollar will start to get expensive. Most of the colonies of the world are much more difficult than their parent country to collect. Most collections before 1940 are pretty spotty because the stamps are just that more difficult to find. My French is pretty good but I haven't worked on it for twenty years or so. I've been working on Portuguese colonies for the last couple years, it looking pretty good in many places but their are still many many I need, cheap to pricey.

Today another spotty Portuguese colony; Horta>
Horta is part of the Azores who had their own stamps for while.
I've been bidding on the few I need for years and I almost always lose cuz I'm just to cheap. If you are going to collect this colony you might as well buy it complete as it only catalogs for $185 used and $305 mint.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

When I took up collecting again in 1988 Chinese stamps were starting to take off. While other catalog values for most countries were tanking, China was headed the other way.
I decided that I would put China on the back burner until the Chinese market weakend.
Unfortunately it never did and I have spent very little time trying to build on that collection. Most of the stamps I have in my China collection are stamps that I collected when I was a kid.

Shown are a few selected pages.

My goal is to get as close to 99% of completion for any country of the world. 100% completion is impossible for many countries so I need settle for the next best option 99%
I have need lists for most countries and I consider them my most important collecting tool in reaching my goal. In addition I keep percentages of completion with my need lists so that I can see how close I am to my goal. Below is a list of completions for many countries.

Denmark 98.2% thru 1982
Finland 96% thru 1962
France 99.3%, semis 98.6% thru 1977

Antonius, I note with interest that your St. Thomas and Prince Islands (Portugese) stamps of 1895 depicting King Carlos are a straight up match for the Nyassa stamps of 1898 (Portugese as well) stamps. Instead of overprinted with Nyassa, overprinted with St. Thomas et Principe). Was this the norm for all the Portugese colonies?

Just started collecting Africa colonies so this is a pertinent set of stamps to see. Great fun.

Cheers!

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

rrr, jered, that's not an easy question to answer. I don't collect anything past year 2000 except U.S which my father is collecting for me. Until recently I did not collect many countries past 1977 but have in recent years have expanded most of Europe and some others to 2000.
I do not collect post independent Africa or Dunes. With the exception of San Marino and Spain my Western Europe is nearly complete as is Latin America except for Honduras and Nicaragua.
Countries that need most amount of work are U.S B.O.B., 19th century Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and early British colonies. Thailand, China, Indian States, Turkey. Iran and Iraq

Wine,Yes that is pretty much the way with Portuguese colony stamps. Many of the colonies first used the early issues of Portugal with overprints of the colony. There were also stamps made just for the colonies. many of which resembled the stamps of Portugal. These were either inscribed or overprinted or both with the specific colonies name.

While one of the least populated. It isn't the least. The British Indian Ocean Territory is the least populated colony. It issues plenty of stamps for a permanent population total of 0.

Interesting that you are missing that one 1961 set from Pitcairn Islands. It took me a long time to find a mnh example of that set. I got it last year, but those spaces had been empty in my album as well.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Anyone know why the pages are headed as Libia wheras the stamps and the country was Libya. I appreciate that the first spelling is from the Italian but by the time 1952 came along the country was The United Kingdom of Libya.
Were the pages USA produced and a retaliation for the Barbary wars? Confused
Think my dad was there at some time during the 1940's maybe that's the problem.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Spellings of country names have changed over the years.

old Libia = now Libya
old Jugoslavia = now Yugoslavia

Names used for countries have also been replaced with new names.

old Upper Volta = new Burkina Faso
old Madagascar (French) = new Malagasy Republic

Scott made the changes during the 1970s and 1980s. Just a reflection of post-colonial-era countries. Of course Scott didn't do this with all the countries in similar situations. Just more inconsistencies.

My 2009 Scott lists Madagascar under "Malagasy Republic" despite that name being well out of date even then.

Does Scott still do this or does it now use "Madagascar" again?

I realise I'm getting out of date too!

I bought my copy of Scott when I joined StampWants so I could see what my new US colleagues were talking about. Time flies.

I'd forgotten about the Consular Mail. They are magnificent stamps particularly when you see a number of them together.

I had a few a few of them at one time but that was many years ago.Sad

Nice work. Libya is giving me a lot of trouble in the early years.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

RRR, Sorry but I cannot be of much help when it comes to most of the Mideast. Although some of my countries are starting to look pretty decent I have never really focused on any of them for any length of time. I've had those Libia stamps for quite some time but cannot remember where or when I got them. The No. 155 relative to the other low values of the set is 6 times higher. That isn't much but it should reflect at least how much more difficult it is to find. It also just could be another one of those stamps where Scott is way off in assigning value to them.

Today I'm filling in the gap of the two Libia/Libya issues I've already shown. Today for the period after the Italian and before Kingdom. The French possession after world War II and before Kingdom. Note, the stamps are inscribed "Fezzan"

1st two regular issues pages and 1st Semi postal and airmail page shown.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Keesindy, I've always just like to look at stamps. It use to be difficult to find people who collected and were wanting to share. That prompted one of the main reasons for starting my site. I thought it would also be helpful for collectors to see new countries they would be interested in collecting and help expand the hobby. I hope this showing has encouraged many of the readers to collect something new.

I hope everyone is aware that they can view most any country they want any time by simply visiting my Website. If you haven't yet I hope you will bookmark now: Antonius-Ra.com

Time to start a new thread. This will probably be the last thread of World wide regular issues and then I'll move on to WW Semi Postals and Airmails.

To start this thread off I'm showing Iceland today. Shown are the first page and a few more of the earliest pages. This collection got as far as I could go in reasonably completing it several years ago. I ended up selling many of the more valuable early ones.

For today the Portuguese colony of Macao. Yesterday I got in a bidding war for the first set. It was complete and cataloged for close to $1,500. I'm regretting that I did not keep going because I'm pretty sure the other guy would have quit pretty soon. I Rather doubt I will see another one where I could win at a price anywhere near that one did.
Shown are 3 of the first 4 pages. Crying

I posted this country yesterday but for some reason it has disapeared, so I will try again.
I's the British colony of British Honduras. As with many of my British colonies it has not been worked much so is rather spotty but still probably worth showing.
Shown are the first two pages and another latter one.

The country for today is Turkey. I spent sometime working on Turkey last year adding many stamps and new pages. I have a bit to do in the 1950's before I can continue scanning and updating the site up into the 90's which are near complete.
Shown are the first three pages and a couple later ones.

Michael, I never thought that someone would have deleted it. Just wondered if there was another known reason or if it had happened to anyone else. After making over 200 posts on the "page of the day" threads, I've never noticed it happening before.

Received a couple of auction lots today so I thought I'd show them. The first is the one and only Semi Postal set from Mozambique. Issued in 1920, I've always thought it was quite nifty but only had one of them before now.
The second is a 1947 semi postal sheet from Monaco featuring Prince Louis II

Thanks Mike.

For today the British Colony of Ceylon. A fairly tough country to collect and my collection shows that and consequently needs much work. In fact it borders on what I feel is worth showing as will be the rest of the countries I show to finish off the thread.

Shown are the first page plus a few others.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Ralph, They are very pretty pages as are mot of the colonies. They are not all that expensive but you really need to get them in complete sets. I like getting complete sets like this from auction lots more pages the better. Otherwise paying a dealer top dollar will start to get expensive. Most of the colonies of the world are much more difficult than their parent country to collect. Most collections before 1940 are pretty spotty because the stamps are just that more difficult to find. My French is pretty good but I haven't worked on it for twenty years or so. I've been working on Portuguese colonies for the last couple years, it looking pretty good in many places but their are still many many I need, cheap to pricey.

Today another spotty Portuguese colony; Horta>
Horta is part of the Azores who had their own stamps for while.
I've been bidding on the few I need for years and I almost always lose cuz I'm just to cheap. If you are going to collect this colony you might as well buy it complete as it only catalogs for $185 used and $305 mint.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

When I took up collecting again in 1988 Chinese stamps were starting to take off. While other catalog values for most countries were tanking, China was headed the other way.
I decided that I would put China on the back burner until the Chinese market weakend.
Unfortunately it never did and I have spent very little time trying to build on that collection. Most of the stamps I have in my China collection are stamps that I collected when I was a kid.

Shown are a few selected pages.

For today something different.
My goal is to get as close to 99% of completion for any country of the world. 100% completion is impossible for many countries so I need settle for the next best option 99%
I have need lists for most countries and I consider them my most important collecting tool in reaching my goal. In addition I keep percentages of completion with my need lists so that I can see how close I am to my goal. Below is a list of completions for many countries.

Antonius, I note with interest that your St. Thomas and Prince Islands (Portugese) stamps of 1895 depicting King Carlos are a straight up match for the Nyassa stamps of 1898 (Portugese as well) stamps. Instead of overprinted with Nyassa, overprinted with St. Thomas et Principe). Was this the norm for all the Portugese colonies?

Just started collecting Africa colonies so this is a pertinent set of stamps to see. Great fun.

Cheers!

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

rrr, jered, that's not an easy question to answer. I don't collect anything past year 2000 except U.S which my father is collecting for me. Until recently I did not collect many countries past 1977 but have in recent years have expanded most of Europe and some others to 2000.
I do not collect post independent Africa or Dunes. With the exception of San Marino and Spain my Western Europe is nearly complete as is Latin America except for Honduras and Nicaragua.
Countries that need most amount of work are U.S B.O.B., 19th century Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and early British colonies. Thailand, China, Indian States, Turkey. Iran and Iraq

Wine,Yes that is pretty much the way with Portuguese colony stamps. Many of the colonies first used the early issues of Portugal with overprints of the colony. There were also stamps made just for the colonies. many of which resembled the stamps of Portugal. These were either inscribed or overprinted or both with the specific colonies name.

While one of the least populated. It isn't the least. The British Indian Ocean Territory is the least populated colony. It issues plenty of stamps for a permanent population total of 0.

Interesting that you are missing that one 1961 set from Pitcairn Islands. It took me a long time to find a mnh example of that set. I got it last year, but those spaces had been empty in my album as well.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Anyone know why the pages are headed as Libia wheras the stamps and the country was Libya. I appreciate that the first spelling is from the Italian but by the time 1952 came along the country was The United Kingdom of Libya.
Were the pages USA produced and a retaliation for the Barbary wars? Confused
Think my dad was there at some time during the 1940's maybe that's the problem.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Spellings of country names have changed over the years.

old Libia = now Libya
old Jugoslavia = now Yugoslavia

Names used for countries have also been replaced with new names.

old Upper Volta = new Burkina Faso
old Madagascar (French) = new Malagasy Republic

Scott made the changes during the 1970s and 1980s. Just a reflection of post-colonial-era countries. Of course Scott didn't do this with all the countries in similar situations. Just more inconsistencies.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

My 2009 Scott lists Madagascar under "Malagasy Republic" despite that name being well out of date even then.

Does Scott still do this or does it now use "Madagascar" again?

I realise I'm getting out of date too!

I bought my copy of Scott when I joined StampWants so I could see what my new US colleagues were talking about. Time flies.

Scott uses Madagascar only for the British Consular Mail.

Thanks Michael!

I'd forgotten about the Consular Mail. They are magnificent stamps particularly when you see a number of them together.

I had a few a few of them at one time but that was many years ago.Sad

Going backwards from yesterday and showing the Italian (first) issues for Libia/Libya.

Shown are the first two regular issue pages and the first semi postal page, which is quite attractive.

Mitch Libya 1952 so hard to come by! Impressed even with all the holes.
Why is Scott 155 so hard to find?
Nice work. Libya is giving me a lot of trouble in the early years.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

RRR, Sorry but I cannot be of much help when it comes to most of the Mideast. Although some of my countries are starting to look pretty decent I have never really focused on any of them for any length of time. I've had those Libia stamps for quite some time but cannot remember where or when I got them. The No. 155 relative to the other low values of the set is 6 times higher. That isn't much but it should reflect at least how much more difficult it is to find. It also just could be another one of those stamps where Scott is way off in assigning value to them.

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Today I'm filling in the gap of the two Libia/Libya issues I've already shown. Today for the period after the Italian and before Kingdom. The French possession after world War II and before Kingdom. Note, the stamps are inscribed "Fezzan"

1st two regular issues pages and 1st Semi postal and airmail page shown.

Mitch, I didn't collect worldwide past my high school years. I really enjoy your sharing all of this material from your collection. Lots of fantastic stamps I would never otherwise see! Thanks for taking the time to do this!

re: A-Ra's Page of the Day Part XII

Keesindy, I've always just like to look at stamps. It use to be difficult to find people who collected and were wanting to share. That prompted one of the main reasons for starting my site. I thought it would also be helpful for collectors to see new countries they would be interested in collecting and help expand the hobby. I hope this showing has encouraged many of the readers to collect something new.

I hope everyone is aware that they can view most any country they want any time by simply visiting my Website. If you haven't yet I hope you will bookmark now: Antonius-Ra.com
