I got an email today that indicated Colnect had improved their image search. Well, I had never tried the old one but decided it was worth giving this a whirl.

I tried a couple U.S large size banknotes and it found them without difficulty. So, I decided to try a hard one, heavily cancelled and not really clear whether it is a Sc.136 or an Sc.147 and that also looks a lot like an Sc.184 not to mention Sc.207. The example I used is included below -- heavily canceled but the important parts of the stamp are visible and it came back picking out Sc.136 and had Sc.147 as a next choice. Pretty neat.

Image Not Found

Here is a link to the image search:

re: Colnect Image Search

I got that mail too, but have not tried it yet. My experience with image recognition is not that great but now that I read your review, I may have to revise my opinion.

Still, it somehow takes away the charm of fanatically going through a catalogue in order to find that one stamp you have in front of you. But I also understand the practicality Big Grin

Did you do it using the phone app? I tried the phone app recently and if the stamp is cropped so only the design shows (no perfs) it did a decent job on identifying.

Angore asked if I used the phone app. Nope, just my desktop with a huge screen. I have an iphone and like it but don't use it for everything but it could be interesting to see if it can id really obscure stuff. So, I may try it.

re: Colnect Image Search

As one of my grand fathers once said in 1908 when confronted with a Model T;
"It looks nice but takes all the fun out of handling the reins."

In a few years the vast amount of knowledge required to collect World
Wide or specialize in some obscure serieswill be taken over by
computers, catalogs will be online applications and the neat hinge folder will be equipped with a moistened tongue that sticks out when the robot fingers are
ready to insert the stamps into a moulded plastic page. HUZZAR! !
Have no fear, the plastic will be reprocessable, of course the stamps
will be ruined.
The damn thing may also have a cup holder for the coffee flavored
Soylent Green refreshment it brews on command.

re: Colnect Image Search

In the Logan's Run book the age for "retirement" was 21!

As wikipedia states "the novel depicts a dystopic ageist future society in which both

population and the consumption of resources are maintained in equilibrium by requiring the

death of everyone reaching the age of 21. The story follows the actions of Logan, a

Sandman charged with enforcing the rule, as he tracks down and kills citizens who "run"

from society's lethal demand—only to end up "running" himself".

The book was published in 1967.

"Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep" made into one of the best science fiction films, (in

my opinion) ..."Bladerunner", was published in 1968 and one has to wonder how much Philip.

K. Dick was influenced by the earlier work.

Ah well back to the real world and sorting some more machins.

Best wishes,

Brian.
