I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

Approvals
I have the complete set of 13 Guinea Scott #817-824 and C148-C152. All the stamps are in sheets as indicated by the sample below. Scott indicates that all are perforated. All the sheets I have are not perforated and they are not imperf unless you cut them apart. There is an indication on the envelope that they came in that says:

681/88 + LP 139/43. 142,5 X 20 = 2850,00 FF.

I am guessing that the first numbers are catalogue numbers from Michel? and the second numbers are what was paid or purchase price and what it equals in French Francs.

re: Guinea Question

Hello Mel!

You may want to go to Ebays "Search For Anything" to find similar Items listed and/or comments from other Collectors. I find myself going there several times per day.

re: Guinea Question

Hi,

Scott has a note saying that most stamps from Guinea from 1962 onwards exist imperforate.

The first and second numbers are Yvert & Tellier catalogue numbers.

I'd guess the third numbers represent 20 x the Y&T catalogue value at some point for an imperf set in French francs.

I don't understand the comment: "they are not imperf unless you cut them apart".

Cutting them apart doesn't make them any more or less imperforate.

re: Guinea Question

I have tried the Ebay angle with no results. Maybe doing something wrong.

Nigel, good question. There is no gum of any kind on the back of the sheets. I was just trying to say that there are no perforations ( which makes them imperf) and that to use them as postage, they would have to be cut from the sheet and used as imperf postage. Make sense?

Proper grammar and math were not my best subjects. Don't Tell Anyone

EDIT: OK I made a big mistake, there is gum on the back of the sheets. Thus, the stamps are imperf in sheet format, 20 stamps per sheet. I found the note Nigel mentioned. It all makes sense to me now, I think.
