According to Wikipedia The US controlled the Canal Zone from 1903 - 1979. Why does my US Liberty stamp album leave out the time period from 1905 to 1923? In other words Canal Zone stamps 1,2,3 and 9 - 69 and also J4 to J11 are not there. Is there an actual reason why these are not considered to be US BoB? I guess I am going against the flow a bit and collecting all of The Canal Zone. Also my album doesn't include Hawaii and a few other areas. All you US BoB people out there, which protectorates do you consider to be part of your collection?

re: Question about Canal Zone

Because, you are using a Scott International album (see my previous response to your question about about Scott International albums.)

Also remember as per the title pages of each International part, that Scott International Album is designed to provide the collector with a "representative collection of the postage stamps of the world". That means that Scott decides which stamps to exclude. Usually it is the more expensive stamps that Scott believes an average collector will not obtain. However, quite often cheap (even minimal value stamps) are left out.

Scott National pages for US Administration contain all of the stamps issued.

re: Question about Canal Zone

A free Canal Zone album can be download here: http://www.thestampweb.com/albums.html (scroll down to US Possessions).

It can be downloaded as a ready to print PDF file or, if you would like to modify it, as a file that can easily be changed using the free AlbumEasy software.

I believe that all the albums in the US Possessions section are very comprehensive as they were created in coordination with the United States Possessions Philatelic Society.

re: Question about Canal Zone

My own Canal Zone collecting has been limited to Scott Number 4, which is the USA One Cent Franklin issue of 1902 (Scott 300) with a "Canal Zone" overprint. The stamps are available easily, but try to find postal usage! The stamp was only in use about a year. I've been searching for years and have managed to purchase a few.

I have been coming across a lot of Canal Zone material and like the designs and history. People (right Len?) had been persuading me to collect it, but I've resisted starting a new collection so far.

Then last month I went to a meeting of the Philatelic Gathering at the Chester County Historical Society here in PA last month. A fellow did a presentation on his collection of Canal Zone and showed that there were only about 250 different stamps! That got me thinking....
