Longest or favourite joined continuous scene on stamps?

Post by PeterTaylor »

stamp strip002.jpg
I love sheets of stamps that make up a continuous scene, and strips like this 1995 Canadian Fortress of Louisbourg series that extends 8 3/4 inches - just over 22cms.

Do you have any that are longer, or any particular favourite strips?

Not particularly of great length, but I always liked this 1977 18c se-tenant issue.

This one of Shakespeare's Globe (1995) reminds me of the illustrations at castles and in English Heritage gift shop books. It isn't particularly long at 17cm~.

The GB 1966 commemoration of the Battle of Hastings, showing part of the Bayeux Tapestry is a nice example. It is difficult to show it well on here as the se-tenant item because of the stamps long and thin rectangular shape.

The other 2 stamps in the set are also shown.

This one from India in 2009 on the 12th century poet Jayadeva & his poem Gita Govinda, the 11 stamps issued in a strip show the 10 incarnations of Vishnu. The strip is around 25 cms in length.
97A1924C-A9F6-4E7B-B6FC-CAC17F68DB8E.jpeg
Seems to be hard to store in a regular stock book or album and most collectors break up the strip in two or three parts.

Very nice strips there fletches1, especially the lovely China issues.

There’s a limit to the size of the strips you can fit on a standard album page of course, which makes them harder to display....

There’s a limit to the size of the strips you can fit on a standard album page of course, which makes them harder to display....
Yes true. Australia has gutter blocks that are hard to fit on an A4 page, in fact Seven Seas produced a preprinted album where you had to remove of fold the selvedge

That GB 1966 Battle of Hastings strip is pretty long!

I always liked the 1981 22c Waltzing Matilda strip.

These have been wonderful and so interesting. Thanks so much folks - especially above and beyond, fletches1. Love those Chinese rivers and mountains, and that Indian series is amazing, Hyderabati. It always seems a shame to break these strips up, but 50cm for the Argentine panorama is crazy, tonga2!

Though I'm now in Australia, I lived in England until 1982 and have a first day cover of the Battle of Hastings...pity they didn't have an envelope of a size to match.

Here are a couple of Russian sets:

Erm, they did, and they currently fetch about £1 on ebay

One of the longest covers you see in the UK is the Battle of Trafalgar vista, comprising three pairs of stamps to complete the single view

Finally, if you are into Bridges, the Canadians will sort you out ...

An all weather link between Prince Edward Island and New Bruswick (Mainland), I still recall the car ferry running alongside the piles, whilst it was being built.

What a very confusing set of stamps - unless the Lion (stamp 1) is also in a strip but you just haven't shown it?

That must be one of the most unusual, as many long s-t strips are only once in a row.

Here stamp 5 also flows into stamp 6 (which is the same design as stamp 1), making it a s-t strip of 10.
