Wanted meter stamps topic turtles and tortoises

Post by tartamimmi »

Hallo to all,
I'm Miriam from Italy, I collect turtles about 15 years.
I work in cataloging of Turtles Meter Stamps
I have cataloged about 230 meter stamps with turtles, and I search forever for new images and new items for my collection.
I collect also meter stamps and letters from cities that have "turtle" in their name (turtle lake, turtletown, turtlepoint and all other)
my collection is about 150 meter stamps (cut or letter)

this is my new webpages on turtle meter stamps!
http://turtlemeterstamp.altervista.org/
(germany and france update coming soon)

and this is my new webpages on Turtle Post Office
is not complete, (update coming soon)

I will keep a lookout for you, Miriam.
I collect franking machine meters slogans on some topics, but I can't remember one with a turtle on it from Australia.


Covers and postmarks are easier to obtain than meters.

Not a particular interest of mine but have made both sites 'favs' so that I can keep checking back on them. The Canadian meter postmarks were a pleasant surprise. I haven't seen them as yet.

Thank you for sharing.

You might want to contact the Schildpaddencentrum in the Netherlands. They might have their own meterstamp.

Wow... that means you have quite an extensive knowledge of the subject

Hindi for turtle is " Kachhua". My mother tongue is Bengali, its " Kachhap" in Bengali. And considering the number of languages in my country.... well the possibilities are immense... :D

Hi

Recently got this postmark from a place called " Kachua" in Nagaon district of Assam. Actually letter came in a cover, but due to Assam floods the cover was damaged.
Kachua means Turtle in Hindi and other Indian languages.

Also a nice FDC from Bangladesh with Tortoise stamps and cancel.

prioritary letter 51/100gr euro 4,00 - registered mail euro 8,00
prioritary letter 100/250gr euro 7,00 - registered mail euro 11,00

Hi!
Miriam,
We have One Post Office named "KACHHUA BO" in the state of Bihar.
The Post Code for this Post Office is 847410.
Another Place is "LANKA KACHHUARA" in Bihar state only. "KACHHUARA" means Fisher. The Post Code for this Post Office is 804453.
Another is "M. KACHHUARA" with Post Code 800016.

The place called is "KACHHUA" which means Turtle. Another name "KACHUA" has different meaning.

Another place in India named on Turtle is "Sri Kurmam" in the state of Andhra Pradesh. "Kurma" is known as the Lord Vishnu's Avatar on Earth which is linked to one Mythological Story. "SriKurmam" Post Office has 532404 as a Post Code.

I am trying to get the cancellation from all these Post Offices but will have to wait for sometime as it is time consuming Job. "KACHHUA" Post Office of Bihar will take much longer as they do not have Cancellation Seal yet.
Warm Regards,
Jatin Trivedi

Hi Miriam

Glad to see this post, though seven years late. I knew your Turtle Meter website many year ago.

I do not have any Turtle meter. I have been collecting Turtle stamps only, having 1000+ turtle or tortoise stamps so far. However, my want list always include materials such as meters, covers, postmarks, postcards, even cinderellas related to Turtle or Tortoise.
