Side note: I have received confirmation from Kevin Morgan that my year's subscription to Stamp News has been assigned to my nominee (a younger collector whom I've been mentoring for several years), and he will begin receiving his complimentary subscription with the Aug 2020 issue. Thanks Kevin!

I would like to nominate johncrow for his many detailed threads on German stamps. These include how to pick varieties, colours, papers and watermarks. He shares many of his techniques for analysing colours and his extensive collections.

The following are some examples of John sharing his detailed knowledge.

This is pleasant surprise given the other nominations and I thank all involved.

I also humbly thank those congratulating me.

I enjoy the Stampboards community and hope I can continue with my inputs for the benefit of all including myself trying to sort and rearrange what I have.

I must admit that the new easy way of entering scans is fuelling up my inputs

Thanks to all the people and the ´engines` that run this excellent board.

Sure the information is available to all of us elsewhere, but unless one fiddles around the images are next to useless for any study. Allanswood's thread saves us all time and bother.

It's a treat to read about places in Australia and see them in this thread, for me and or those that have never been to Australia before. A fantastic thread filled with philatelic reference that is a must read for all. :D

If it is permissible, Waffle would like to third that nomination. An excellent road trip. I am looking forward to when he arrives in Traralgon, where we spent our first 8m years in Australia.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.
