Is there a catalogue of GB modern minor stamp errors/varieties etc?

Post by deltic1575 »

Many years ago Stanley Gibbons published a catalogue for decimal special issues / commemorative which listed minor varieties/errors.

I understand it never really sold well and I think the last edition came out in 1998.

Is there any other catalogues/web site that lists minor errors on recent GB stamps - I'm not talking about major errors such as missing colours but minor ones like broken lettering etc.

I don’t think so, and I don’t think it would sell very well if there was one.

Interest in stamps overall has dropped and interest in modern new issues has dropped even further.

This link shows SG’s current range of GB Catalogues. The ‘specialised’ volumes are not published every year, only the Concise and CBS.

If a new edition of theatre catalogue was to be published then it would bring the listings up to date.
