Am considering the purchase of an Austria specialty catalogue.

If someone owns the Stanley Gibbons Austria and Hungary catalogue, would it be possible to scan and post the catalogue entries for the 1890 - 96 Franz Josef series?

Am interested to see how the SG listing compares with Scott and Michel.

Thank you.

Thank you, HockeyNut.

Yes, that's an interesting and informative website. A site which I have visited several times across the past few weeks. Especially appreciate the cross-listing of catalogue numbers as well the inclusion of minor varieties (e.g., shades, perforations, paper types, etc.)

Subsequent to my earlier posting I obtained a copy of Gibbons' Austria and Hungary catalogue. Am still working on differentiating btwn the various perforation types: line, comb, and harrow.

On the Austrian Philately website, there is a good "primer" in the form of an article entitled "Perforations: The Hole in the Corner" by Martin Brumby.

re: Austria: Stanley Gibbons catalogue

Calstamp, collecting those stamps is a never ending job, I have close to 200 stamps of that period, some of them as many as 5 times each with different perforations, they are to Austria what Washington-Frankling are to us.
I can post a picture or two if you would ike to see them, honestly, I didn't think anybody was interested these stamps.

StampCollector...

Thx for your posting. Simply put, despite being a WW collector for more than 50 yrs, I continue to discover aspects of philately that attract my interest.

Case in point: The stamps (chiefly definitives) of the late 1800s/early 1900s. Am certain hundreds of these stamps have passed through my fingers over the years. And I never paid much attention to the perforation varieties or distinguished btwn paper types, etc. And considered "varnish bars" too confusing. Until recently. And in a relatively short period of time, like you, have amassed a considerable collection of heretofore unappreciated stamps.
