"Meter Stamps from Kyiv" stamp catalogue by Andriy Bilous

Post by vicaf60 »

Andriy Bilous, a Ukrainian collector, published another reference book of his - "Meter Stamps from Kyiv".

Image

The book contains 366 pages where the author has summarized all known types of meter stamps used in Kyiv during the period that covers years between Ukraine's gaining independence and the present day. The text in the book is in Ukrainian and English languages.
The meter stamps are divided into types and subtypes depending on the period of their use and component elements, each (sub)type is illustrated by pictures from the author's collection and by pictures provided by partner collectors.
Here's a sample page of the contents:

However, the author admits that not all denominations used have been catalogued in his book, the main reason being the absence of material (postally used covers) with high face value meter stamps that were normally sent abroad.

Some part of these might have ended in foreign collections, and Andriy Bilous hopes that some of those collector (I know several here in the Forums who are interested in the subject) will share scans of their covers with meter stamps from Kyiv, to further extend his catalogue.

To give you a better idea of what is meant, here are two sample pages from the Index of Meter Stamps contained in the book:

I would like to acquire this catalog. Do I need to contact him directly, or is there a place online that I can purchase it?

Good seller and keeps their stock list regularly updated, so that should be available: have purchased from them on a semi-regular basis.

@pacneil. They shouldn't have any issues selling direct although postage to the USA may be a little on the high side. If so, I'll happily add this to an order of my own and forward it across for about half the postage & packing charge quoted (max. 60% of Royal Mail rate with no additions).
