Last evening I decided to try to identify a handful of stamps that I have been unable to find in my catalogues.

After an hour of thoroughly frustrating myself I loaded up Colect, typed in the country and did a search by face value for 5 of the stamps and up popped exactly what I was looking for.

I also tried the search by image for one stamp from Brecquou without any luck even though I did find the stamp by using the search by face value within the Country Brecquou listings.

Saved hours of searching!

re: Saved by Colnect

I look up everything on Colnect by face value. It beats going a catalog that is well illustrated. For modern, they often only have one image when the set may have many.

Agree completely! Face value is usually my first search criteria, too.

re: Saved by Colnect

I can't even get Colnect to work, it loads the main screen and then the little arrow at the top of the site just sits there and spins. It's been happening to me all week. It's probably that little black cloud perpetually sitting over my house, even at night! Any hints, besides try moving?

Bob,

re: Saved by Colnect

Mike - I would suggest you clear your history and cache and then instead of using a bookmark to load the site, try typing in the URL for Colnect which is: https://colnect.com/en/stamps

I just loaded the main page and I do not see a little black arrow at the top of the site.

Is this what you are seeing on the main page?

Did you try clicking on it. It's about using a camera.

re: Saved by Colnect

I get the exclamation mark also, but I just ignore it. I can still use Colnect.

Another thing that I use sometimes when I am trying to narrow down search results is to click on Emissions. Then I can choose Air Post, Commemorative, Definitive, Semi-postal, Official or whatever is the appropriate type for the stamp I am trying to identify.
