THANK YOU ROGER!!
I'll post over there. Great link!
Love the 5th Dynasty scribe. As I stated, you can always find that "little gem" of a stamp somewhere.

I'm not new, I'm old.

I've been here since January 2007 (months before the board officially opened to others - I'm member #4. This means there are about 25,000 people who have no idea who I am, and my intro from 2007 is completely wrong now.

I moved to Milwaukee in 2012. Been out of work for a while because of COVID-19, but hope that won't be for much longer.

What I do with stamps: The short answer is I buy larger lots and break them up into country collections (and occasionally individual "goodies"). I've been on eBay since 1997 (erich53212) and normally sell there, but have taken a break since the Postal Service has been so unreliable lately.

I mostly look for pre-1940 WW (anything after 1960 is here because it came with something else that I wanted).

Stuff I personally like to collect:
-- Deep "back of the book" -- proofs, essays, strange revenues, locals. I like finding unlisted stuff and figuring out what it is.
-- Postal "mistakes": EFO's, misdirected covers, illegal usages (revenues used as postage, unauthorized bisects, etc. Basically, anything that shouldn't have gotten through the postal service but did.)

I've gotten back into coins a bit after a 30 year break. Mostly 18th and 19th C. tradesman's tokens.

dl563_7.jpg




They look interesting, aren't expensive, and are obscure enough that there are no modern fakes.

If you're wondering how I got here so early, a bit of history: back in the late 1990s, there was the eBay Stamp Message Board, and also a very basic mailing list run by a guy named Greg Deeter.

Both were somewhat useful, but also had a fair number of crazy people on them, who would argue with the other crazy people; it was very distracting. Glen was also on both of those.

There was a stamp show in NYC in late 2006; I lived in NYC back then and went to most of the local shows. Glen and Margo were at that show, and brought over some lots for me to pick up.

We had a nice chat about stamps over lunch, and he mentioned buying the stampboards domain name the year before and not really got around to doing anything with it. He emailed me when it was set up a few weeks later; that was 14 and a half years ago.

Hi all,

Like many, I started stamp collecting as a child, keeping anything and everything from anywhere. Also, like many, the collection got shelved in teen/early adulthood when other interests and commitments took over.

In recent years I've got back into it and honed my interest to the stamps of Papua New Guinea, dating back to German & British New Guinea. (I'm an Aussie who spent a chunk of my childhood in PNG).

Looking forward to connecting with others :)

Hello erich , now in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

The are some lovely Australian and New Zealand token coins from the nineteenth century, but unlike your US tradesmen's tokens, they are rather expensive. Here's an Australian example, currently on eBay:

I think of token coins as the "cinderellas of coin collecting".

Hello all!

My name is Nik, I generally go by Erase on most Online-Platforms though. Im 24 at the moment and currently studying History and Archaeology in Hamburg, Germany.

I started collecting stamps as a child and while trying to clear out space in the apartment I currently share with my girlfriend, I stumbled across my old collection, mostly unsorted and chaotic, which rekindled my interest in Postal History and Stamps. To me, the many facets of Philately are like a continuous treasure hunt and by joining this Forum I hope to further my knowledge on the many aspects of this 'Hobby'.

I collect by country, specifically Namibia, South Africa and Germany, which are all countries I've spent considerable time in. As far as stamps are concerned, Im mainly interested in completing my pre-1950's collection of the three countries mentioned above.

Due to currently living and studying in Germany Im obviously focusing on the old German States, the second and third Reich, the Weimarer-Republic and the post-war occupation. However, Im always very interested in everything Namibian (my home country) and South African.

Recently, and somewhat connected to my studies, Ive gotten heavily into Postcards and Letters, combining my love for 'everyday-history' and Philately. I really enjoy going to Fleamarkets etc. and discovering personal, scandalous, sad and sometimes hilarious insights into long-forgotten lives.

Although Im on a students budget, my small collection boasts some interesting and even rare items, which I look forward to potentially sharing on this Forum. I aim to focus mostly on this part of my collection in the future.

Although I don't plan on being an extremely active Member of this Board, I look forward to the potential exchanges and conversations!

Thanks erich for showing those lovely New Zealand tokens. They evoke a sense of commercial prosperity and practices of the mid-to-late nineteenth century, and continue in the same tradition as their British counterparts modelled up to and around that time.

Hello and welcome to Erase in Hamburg, Germany.

A brief look at the last 130 years of Namibia's history

I have just refreshed my acquaintance with Namibia's philately and "recent" history.

(A) History through philately
The German colonial period:

.
Sketch of History since 1884
Wikipedia wrote:Namibia became a German colony in 1884 under Otto von Bismarck to forestall perceived British encroachment and was known as German South West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika). The Palgrave Commission by the British governor in Cape Town determined that only the natural deep-water harbour of Walvis Bay was worth occupying and thus annexed it to the Cape province of British South Africa.

From 1904 to 1907, the Herero and the Namaqua took up arms against brutal German colonialism. In a calculated punitive action by the German occupiers, government officials ordered extinction of the natives in the OvaHerero and Namaqua genocide. In what has been called the "first genocide of the 20th century", the Germans systematically killed 10,000 Nama (half the population) and approximately 65,000 Herero (about 80% of the population). The survivors, when finally released from detention, were subjected to a policy of dispossession, deportation, forced labour, racial segregation, and discrimination in a system that in many ways anticipated the apartheid established by South Africa in 1948.

Most Africans were confined to so-called native territories, which under South African rule after 1949 were turned into "homelands" (Bantustans). Some historians have speculated that the German genocide in Namibia was a model for the Nazis in the Holocaust. The memory of genocide remains relevant to ethnic identity in independent Namibia and to relations with Germany. The German government formally apologised for the Namibian genocide in 2004...

During World War I, South African troops under General Louis Botha occupied the territory and deposed the German colonial administration. The end of the war and the Treaty of Versailles resulted in South West Africa remaining a possession of South Africa as a League of Nations mandate until 1990.

There's plenty of historical content and documentation inherent in the philately of Namibia. Best wishes Erase, for your growing interest in that field.

Greetings everyone,

I started collecting anything I could soak off envelopes as a child. With my family running a small business back in the day, we had a steady supply of stamps. However, that stream slowly dried up with fewer people using stamps and the widespread use of self-adhesives in the USA.

I’ve always kept my childhood stamp collection though, and as an adult my interests are focused towards collecting topics. My favorites are birds (specifically kingfishers), fruits, and local foods from around the world. I like to collect postmarked used, as well as covers, because of the stories they tell.
Topical collector: kingfishers, fruits.

Greetings! I'm a resident and native of Toronto. I've been collecting British colonial engraved stamps since I was about 11, when I walked into a local bookshop where the owner sold small packets of stamps. In one, there was a 1956 1/2 d. beauty from the Gilbert and Ellice Islands. It was love at first sight, and the passion hasn't abated.

I specialise in the early Elizabethan period, from 1953 to whenever the last classic stamps were issued, usually round 1960. However, I do go back as far as George V. I'm currently very enthused about getting full sheets - to get a better feel for what it must have been like to be a postmaster in some backwater colonial post office opening his book to these glorious miniature works of art :P

Oh my goodness! Roger, my heart leapt when I saw the stamp (super-sized) that launched a thousand other stamps :P . As you've so ably shown, the whole series is positively magnificent. Thank you so much for posting these!

One interesting thing (of many interesting things) about this series is that three portraits of Her Majesty are used, whereas most series content themselves with just one (or two, where the Queen faces opposite directions).

Pursuing that assignment, I think these are the three different portraits:
(A) ½d, 2d, 2/6
(B) 1d, 5d, 6d, 2/–, 5/–
(C) 2½d, 3d, 1/–, 10/–.

Perhaps hansboyca would be kind enough to evaluate my homework assignment ;)

Roger! A+! Even had you got a few wrong, I'd have to award you top marks for doing unassigned homework :lol:

Looking at the George VI equivalents, I see that FOUR portraits were used. I assume just three were used for the Elizabethan series, because that's all that was available at the time.

For your next assignment - quite a bit harder, I'm afraid - tell me what other colonies used the same model of mixing-and-matching royal profiles.

This discussion about QEII portraits is taking us away from the purpose of this thread, which is for New Members' Introductions. The recent discussion is more appropriate to the QEII thread, so let's summarise and continue it there. ;)

Welcome to Stampboards Shankly from Liverpool, UK :D
Greetings, Shankly, and many thanks for welcoming me to the board. My mum is a graduate of Liverpool University. And Sonia is a Liverpudlian - what better credentials could a city have?

Hello, I'm Phil. Pleased to join you all in the discussion of this wonderful hobby.

I hope a new topic isn't considered a new thread. Apologies if my first attempt at communication is a rule breaker. Hope it's only a misdemeanor. I've been collecting for most of my life. I will gladly try to help other in areas that I have knowledge and reference material. Willing to trade. Looking forward to many interesting discussions, and reads. Thank you for accepting me into your group. Cheers.

I am new here and I do not know a lot about chat boards, so be easy with me. My name is Charles Brack and I live in a small town in middle Georgia USA. I have collected stamps for some time but have not been active for about 20 years so I have a lot of catching up to do. I am an engineer, that sold computer sofeware all my life, but I know so little about PC's and windows it seems. Glad to be here and thanks for letting me on

Hello, my name is Graham, I have started collecting again after 28 years, my main two interests are GB and the Italian Republic, I am concentrating on my Italian collection for now and I can truly say the Star watermarks 2,3 and 4 are giving me a headache.
