Image Not FoundHello. I trust in your help to know what you think of this variety of colors on these stamps. Are they common? Or can they have some importance in philately? I kindly ask for your opinion on the future of philately, I hear many voices from collectors who think that it is going through a bad period and that many are now abandoning given the lack of interest that exists especially in the new generations. A cordial greeting.Image Not Found

re: Variety of color.

Hello
I don't have the Yvert Tellier catalog for French Post Abroads of Port Said (Egypt), but for use in France this stamp has 2 varieties of color: slate (ardoise) and gray (gris), both common.

re: Variety of color.

Thank you. So much for your reply. Unfortunately I don't have the catalog you mentioned either. I'll try to get it.

re: Variety of color.

This stamp for France (at the bottom is written "Postes" instead of "Port Said") has a lot of varieties of paper and drawing.
They may also appear for your stamps.

re: Variety of color.

Thank you. Incredible how many times a stamp can be many variations, without adequate documentation many have bought stamps that maybe they thought they had a certain value, perhaps from fake appraisers' only to realize that they were not worth anything. what do you think of my question asked at the beginning of my post about the future of philately?

In response -

Philately - like nearly everything else - goes through ups and downs/highs and lows as far as popularity.
I go to shows in my state (MICH) regularly, and I see all age groups attending these shows. Yes - the majority of attendees are retirement age, but the point is that there ARE YOUNGER ATTENDEES AS WELL. Younger attendees/collectors will never be the majority.
Dedicated stamp collecting nearly always comes with more time to dedicate to it - such as retirement.
If shows were scheduled only on weekdays - no weekend dates - some would assume only the elderly are collecting! People such as myself - 59 yrs. old and still working full time - would seldom attend a weekday show.


I hear and read about stories and statements that claim that philately is dying out. Where I come from we have a word for that - HOGWASH.
It just isn't true. Plain and simple.

I will go even further and say that stamp collecting is just as strong as it ever was. It is DIFFERENT than it was 10 years ago, yes. But it is still going strong.

re: Variety of color.

I am a beginner collector (only 4 years old) and since I am 60 years old, I think that the future of philately is longer than mine. I am joking, of course.
After 4 years I learn daily about printing methods, paper types, perforating methods, color varieties basic elements for a philatelist.
I still haven't been able to buy a UV lamp to start studying fluorescence / phosphorescence for paper and ink. Philately is closely related to the historical, economic, political situation in various periods of the world (local kingdoms, colonies, world or local wars, military occupations, etc.)
There are thousands of philatelic works that describe the evolution of stamp issuance over time.
They are no longer edited, they are forgotten in libraries or museums or in the possession of older collectors who no longer have the energy and enthusiasm to share them with novice collectors and it is essential that they find passionate young people to give copy after the philatelic works collected in a life.( in general, their heirs waste this accumulation of information)
I believe that philately has a future as long as there are people who want to learn and people who have this information and share it.
These philatelic associations with valuable members (stamporama, stampcommunity, stampsmarter, worldstampsproject, philatelietruchtersheim.free.fr and many others) are real philatelic schools (if you collect German stamps I recommend you to read HockeyNut's posts)
I end here ... I don't know what the future of philately is.

re: Variety of color.

It's a life long learning experience. That's why I suspect I'll be around along time. And I'm a new collector as well. And that's exactly what I enjoy about it. There is never a shortage of information to learn. See I get bored easily once I master something. And then I move on. This is definitely different. And I think it is great.

And your talking to a guy who went as far as mastering how the electric lightbulb socket came into existence. It was originally wood. :-)
