Hi Rob

Very nice selection.

It is amazing how many colour variations stamps can have.

You have impressed me once again.

I am in the process of rehousing my collection.

Albums for KGV, KGVI. QEII PRE DECIMALS, QEII DECIMALS


and then there are all the Australian State stamps as well.

Once that is done, then the long task of issue dates for each, I will then have to worry about papers, colours, varieties.

It is a never ending task.

Regards

Horamakhet.

Hi Horamakhet.

These are the most obvious of the shades for this set of stamps, there are a few others I have seen but they are very insignificant in shade difference.

I have pre-decimals and state stamps in one album, including 1966 (1853-1966), decimal stamps in two albums (1967 - present), varieties in one album, B.C.O.F. stamps in one album, FDC envelopes in one album, NZ, British countries and German (1923-1946) stamps in one album, 1938-1956 ½d kangaroos in three albums (one album is A3 in length and width (just over 4,000 ½d kangaroos in coils and sheets).

I created a very detailed catalogue in excel, each page is designated to a monarch showing condition, both ACSC catalogue numbers (2015, 2018 & 2019), invoice dates and what I paid for each stamp, perforations (in both styles), colours and shades, description of design, denominations, special features such as varieties, specimens, imperforations etc.

I'm still waiting for my humidifying cabinet for the albums and will have that soon and that is going to set me back $1300.

It definitely is a never ending task.

Rob
