Woo hoo thanks. The postie has visited me this week a couple of times, so will need to update that thread at some point. I send, therefore I receive! I'm lucky at least a few penpals do appreciate using nice stamps on letters.

It'll be an honour to join the ranks of posters of the month!

I'd like to nominate lanuii for the thread "Sharing an old collection of German Stamps - Third Reich Era (1938-45)". It sparked one of the most fascinating discussions I've seen on the boards regarding German philately. :)

Hear, hear! Dr Waffle puts a great deal of work into a lot of threads and that is one of the best.

I only wish there was time to ask questions or comment on more of them, and other similar threads, because we learn by asking and answering, as well as by looking at pictures.

I'll nominate -

'PHILAS NSW Committee appear to have LOST $3 MILLION in under a year?'
https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=100819&start=1351
David Benson.

Probably the largest organised philately financial disaster/scandal in global HISTORY, and the idiots behind it all are cheerfully trying to get re-elected this month. Around $3 Million of collector money now lost forever it seems.

David Benson has worked tirelessly to expose the incompetence of the current Committee, and was abused, and intimidated and stood over in the process and reportedly copped anti-Semitic comments from PHILAS president John Moore, who is also sadly on the Committee of the Federal APF collector body, and has refused to apologise. SHAME. :roll: :roll: :roll:

I'd like to second this nomination.

As a big fan of the New South Wales De La Rue issues I felt an affinity with the stamps shown. The 6d for both entities are almost identical, and the NZ 2d of the second sidefaces has turned up in mixed lots masquerading as a NSW 6d on more than one occasion.

I hope RedKiwi has some success in tracking down postal history items, which appear to be much more scarce than their NSW counterparts.

Thanks for the nomination Margo, but I'd like to be not considered for that thread. When I started it I had a vision that the thread would be somewhat educational, providing information about the locality, a precis of what one could do in the area, and perhaps to encourage interest in visiting.

Of late the thread to my mind is a bit more personal, but little different than the postcard thread: - guess where this is, and now this, and now this.

There's nothing wrong if people want to do that, but I'm not that impressed with how it has been reincarnated.
