Fascinating stuff!

If not for those dangerous birds, I would be tempted to vacation on Snark Island. 8)

Great stuff Browny...

I am a huge fan and collector of Mr. Gerald King’s many items including his Snark series...

A part of my Gerald King collection can be found on my webpage
(http://www.cinderellafan.com).

I haven’t added the Snark items to my webpage yet so this post will be very helpful.

Thank you... :D

Another great site about the Snark series is: http://www.askmeaboutstamps.com/?page_id=1747
