Hello Pedro,

Not so many contributors nowadays here on RCSD :-(

Identification of your stamp was not easy as the country name is
written only with the arabic / persian alphabet and I do not read it.

I was helped by this site :
http://www.stampmasteralbum.com/Fore...er/Hi/Iran.htm

The country is Iran and it represents the Ministry of Justice in Teheran
50 Dinars, issued in 1944

Scott # 886
Yvert & Tellier # 687

Minimal value : 0.15 Euro or $

HTH

All the best,

Congratulations, good job.

BTW, I couldn't find images of the frp participants in this years
Champerret. I suppose that the reason was their weak participation.

Amicalement,

Victor

Unfortunately, it is more than true.

Interest in all world collections has been dropping as many can not
afford to 'keep up' with the spurious flood of 'issues'.

Many, as myself, have specialized in limited areas.

I 'trashed' my US collection when they went to garbage issues in the
1980's. Cut back my GB to pre-decimal and have further cut back to
acquiring primarily QV period.

All that said, there's little of interest here for me, though I
'monitor' to aid where it falls within my area of study.

Same for me : from the 1st of January 2001, I stopped buying the
rubbish produced by the French Post. At that date the Euro became the
official currency of France and the face values were then written only
in Euros. I had nothing against the adoption of the Euro but it was a
symbolic date.

At that date France has issued 3442 "ordinary" stamps (plus the "back of
the book" ones like Air Post, Postage Due, Pre-Cancelled, ...)
Amongst the 3442 my want list consists of about 10 stamps and I do not
think I will ever be abble to buy all of them :-)

So I decided to limit myself to the 106 stamps of the "Classic" period
(1849-1900) and to acquired stamps of better quality from that period.

I also decided to begin to collect Australia after acquiring some 8 000
Australian stamps in a kiloware sale. And I was delighted and still am
in discovering the philately of this country that I visited lengtly in 2
occasions.


All that said, there's little of interest here for me, though I

The same for me : I continue to come here and try to help if possible.

Thanks for this quite interesting site.
I noticed there is a chapter on Australia that I will visit in detail
ASAP !

BTW, Pedro sent me a very kind personal mail to thank me as well.

Good point, Victor !

On the 1st day there was only one person from frp
On the 2d day we were 3 for a a drink on "Timbres Magazine" 's
stand followed by a friendly lunch in a nearby restaurant
2 persons were present on the 3rd day and nobody on the last day !

Thus no picture taken and placed on the web by myself.

On the 3rd day you may be interested to see this short (1 min 40 sec)
video taken by Gauthier Toulemonde, Chief-Editor of
Timbres Magazine :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKKksF3V4mo
The stamps that changed your life (or your collections)

From frp, you can see Bernard Calmettes speaking of the variety (error
of colour) of a stamp depicting Louis the XIV (second to be
interviewed).
And Michel Bablot (third to be interviewed) explaining that as a young
boy, he was not allowed the touch nor to leaf through his father's
collection, so he decided to start his own collection !

Haunt eBay and don't be afraid to contact the seller and make an offer
on a 'buy it now' listing. I've managed some early mint GB that way.

I also decided to begin to collect Australia after acquiring some 8 000
Australian stamps in a kiloware sale. And I was delighted and still am

You should find a copy of Brusden-White if you are going to study OZ
in detail. They're the Yvert specialised of OZ. You'll also need
access to a 'black light' for the few issues in ordinary and
'phosphor' coated.

Thanks for this quite interesting site.

It's only fair, just a few items, though I'm 97% complete as singles.

Happy hunting!

Sorry for this long delay answering you :-(

Thanks for the trick !

Yes I know the reputation of the Brusden-White.
I have seen that the set of 9 volumes is at 645 AUS $ plus postage
http://www.brusden-white.com.au/
I am not sure I will ever be able to buy them

I imagine you are speaking of the 'helecon paper' stamps
Yes I have already two UV lamps, for each of the wavelengths
used by the different countries.

Go to:
http://www.bookfinder.com/?ref=bf_s2_hd_1
Change the funds and country to yours, then enter:
"Australian Commonwealth Specialists"
as the title and just
"White" as the author.

Right now there are three copies of the 1988 edition available for
under US$90. One in OZ and two in the UK.

Yes, it's 'old' but it has most of the necessary information until/if
you specialize in a period and need one of the 'new' edition volumes.

Many thanks ! I just ordered a copy.
It may be the one in OZ at it will take 3 weeks to arrive !
A nice Xmas present :-)
The shipping cost of 6 € is reasonable.
