I noticed on Ebay, there is a First Series Revenue said to be a double transfer, it is nothing but a dry print. The seller is asking a few hundred dollars for a dry print and not a double transfer.

Hope nobody on StampoRama gets burned.

re: Not a Double Transfer

Just did a membership search. Counting you and I there are 9 members who collect US revenues. That's not a huge amount to choose from, but thanks for the warning anyway! Very few people are into revenues to your degree so we very much value your knowledge and any information really is appreciated! Thanks!

Dear Guys,
Just a thought- what do you think about reaching out to the 9 revenue folk to make sure they know about each other?

re: Not a Double Transfer

All you really have to do is go into the "Member's Information" and do a search. I've done it for several areas I collect just to see what the numbers are. For example only 8 of us collect Poland whereas 12 collect Russia if you count the person who collects only Russian stationary. I haven't the nerve to check US or Canada. I wonder if any one of you real "nerds" out there could write a program to calculate the numbers for each country that is listed in the interests. Might be fun to know. There were only 3 for Latvia and 2 for Lithuania - not very popular! But by just checking individually Bulgaria would not be included with those who specify the Balkans, if anyone does (actually no one does)!. This would make a very interesting study but I think only IAN would have the patience to do it individually! Big Grin

re: Not a Double Transfer

Harvey, I agree with your good suggestions about how to get folks together who have a similar collecting interest. Because of your suggestions, how would you like to head up a group to do exactly what you are suggesting? I'd be happy to assist, but my computer skills are woefully inadequate to do much else. What do you think?

re: Not a Double Transfer

If I was going to do this I would have to do it individually by country. I used to teach computer courses in the 1980's and 90's, that was the last time my skills were current! There must be a programmer among our renowned group at the top who could dash off a program and do this in an hour or so. It would take me a week to do it the way I would have to. What do you say? Any takers?

re: Not a Double Transfer

So if I am reading this correctly, you would be willing to chair an effort to increase interaction with our members around their special interests. If this is correct, I'd be happy to present this to the MT for their input. (I'm assuming that they might not be automatically catching all conversations.)

I'm not sure how to define an "effort". It is very easy to find people in this site with a common interest, all you have to do is a very simple search of Member Information. I assume we all know how to do this. If I wanted to do so, and I might, I could then contact the people of like interest to see if we wanted to stay in touch with each other about stamp issues. This has already happened to me several times. If I mention in the discussion area that I have certain interests I have had people get in contact with me on several occasions. Lately I mentioned I was interested in US revenue wine stamps and three people contacted me about stamps they wished to sell and in one case, give away. Maybe all that needs to be done is a message from one of our leaders sent out to everyone reminding them about how easy it would be, if they wish to do so, to discover who the like minded collectors are, and how easy it would be to make contact. I really think a reminder like that would be useful since our reason for even joining this site is to further, or discuss, our collection with like minded people. I have no idea if anything I just wrote makes any sense, but I hope so! Confused

I think it does make sense, and I'll ask the MT to check in on our discussion for any input they may wish to offer. I personally like the ideas being kicked around.
