Oh yes, that made me laugh, King Tut. Now that is surely a winning exhibit that you could, er, exhibit one day. Get together fifteen more pages and make it up into a full frame. It would at least bring a giggle to the judges and just goes to show that philately is never boring. Well those ones are, but you know what I mean. Love it! :roll: :lol:
The big difficulty would be in filling the other 11 or 15 frames for 12 or 16-page exhibit. Commercial use is very hard to find and most were used by collectors and dealers. In fact, I received a Large Letter today with a 2nd class Christmas stamp, a 37p lighthouse from 1998, and the 3½p label, although the ½p was ignored in the total value.

Oh dear, you’ve all made it very hard for me to choose! :lol: Good on you! A very close decision, but here we go...

Could our three winners please message me their postal addresses through these boards?

1st prize: RedKiwi Well done with your (ongoing) venture into New Zealand’s “First Side Face Perforation Varieties (1874 – 1878)". Fascinating to learn as I had no idea that this little stamp came in so many different shapes and sizes. I can only imagine the variety of errors, freaks, varieties, plate differences and so on that must abound across the different types here!

What's the story about the compound perf 12.5" x 12" – or, rather, "nearly 12"? What's that then, like 11.9" or something? I wonder why so few were issued.

2nd prize: Teus Thank you for sharing your “Types of Numerals in Numeral Postmarks”. This was also completely new to me as I had never really given it much thought. I also like the way you have presented your material on the page.

3rd prize: Lesboozman Speaking of presentation, despite the difficulties you've had in converting your page from your computer into something legible that would fit on Stampboards, I think this is a fun, colourful subject. I wish now that I hadn't sold off my “Fiji Bird Overprints” last year (or was it the year before?) and had kept a few! The highlight of your page, I think, is that postally used cover. Have you any others?

4th prize: Goes to Ubobo.R.O. since he asked so nicely. :lol:

5th prize Well done to Brewdog with your superb Canadian page all sorts of higher value stamps. Have you ever tried chasing them postally used on whole covers? Now, that would be fun! Unfortunately I don't have another sausage, which Ubobo.R.O. has already won.

Meanwhile, manrico is to be commended for his artist skills and presentation of the “Oficina postal principal de Caracas (1958 – 1965)" My fiancé saw that and thought it looked "pretty".

It'd be worthwhile me also commending Girish Vaidya for his equally nice layouts. Some “Great American Authors and Poets”. I love the red coloured piece which both brightens up the page and provides a lovely thematic example of postal markings. Have you also got a stamp of Mark Twain in your collection? Now he was a writer!

King Tut have you managed to find any of “Great Britain’s Most Boring Stamps” used on cover? There's a few that pop up on Delcampe from time to time if you're interested. For example...
1984 GB "most boring stamps" used on Cambridge cover to Germany
1984 GB "most boring stamps" used on Cambridge cover to Germany
OldDuffer1: Now I'm sorry that there's only three prizes because so many of you folks here are so well deserving. I love your “Development of Early Pre-Stamp Postal Marks of Edinburgh” and have always enjoyed looking into any of that really early stuff, although the oldest cover I have is comparatively late in use being dated 1795 – and Newcastle at that, which is still south of the Scottish border! The older the better! Any idea what, if anything, featured on transported documents prior to 1660? Or simply the name of the recipients? Rather scarce at best, I guess. Have you considered exhibiting at an, well, at an Stamp Show somewhere? I'm sure you have plenty of good examples from your Scottish thread.

Thanks for drawing my attention to a beautifully engraved stamp, BigSaint. With a keen eye for Kangaroos and the earlier pre-decimal, I often forget to check out in more depth the later pre-decimal issues. Such a mistake!

Elton_Goa_India, I think we’d all agree that the handwriting on your pages is the best yet and the fact that this was not done on a computer makes these a favourite for me. Have you ever considered doing the same? I feel that I lack the talent!

Ah, RogerE, you have the mind of a professor! ;) Lots of fascinating information about stamps I’ve never really noticed nor perhaps even seen before. Thank you for passing on your passion here, because who knows, you may open a new collecting niche for me one day, at this rate (oh dear!) Yes please, do post your other page when you have completed it.

anilkhemlani, feel free to post something anyway. We would all love to see what you have been able to create! I have found this to be all the more inspiring and educational than first expected.

Spartacus, that page would look fantastically grand blown up into several A3 sheets. Of course, that would be storage a problem if you didn't have a large full sheet album! :lol:

satsuma, I think that block is worthy of a page of its own because it is certainly an eye catcher in its own right.

Yes, that's something I'm after too but that's not a thing to rush.
Will need to check but I've got almost every copy in used condition, except a whale, and some copies on covers too.
So these might be posted for our future One Page Exhibition thread. :mrgreen:

Thank you, Catweazle. That is a nice surprise. :)

I created the 1 page to see how it would come out, but did not expect, given the interesting and diverse entries, that a page on an obscure topic such as rare perfs would be of interest.

The short answer regarding why the perfs from this period in NZ philately are so varied is that we don't really know. Precise records did not survive, so most of what we know has been the result of discoveries by philatilists.

The broader answer is that the 1870s was a period of experimentation and new technology in NZ, with new machines and processes being introduced as the small colony underwent rapid expansion. There seems to have been a high error rate with perforation machines, but the postal authorities did not like to write-off stamps (even patching and repairing badly perforated stamps on occasion). In a frontier land, nothing went to waste. When missing lines of perforations were found on sheets, it seems they just put them through whatever perforation machine was available.

It makes for some fun investigative work, and means that there are some real rarities that can be found by collectors just by paying very close attention to small details (not everyone's cup of tea, understandably) :ugeek:

I will have a new post tomorrow on my NZ First Side Face thread where I show what can be found on eBay with a sharp eye. https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=103772

Thanks again, and congratulations on 5000 posts.

Congratulations to the winners, it was certainly a challenge to put one together.

Thank you Catweazle for the fun & the nice prizes.

Perhaps a one page Exhibit might be something we can do at Brighton Philatelic Society. :D

Thank you catwezel and good stamps to the winners!!

I don't (yet) have any postage stamp commemorating Mark Twain. Am on the look out. Also on the look out for P G Wodehouse. Surprised Great Britain has not issued one on him, or have they?

Very good! I would say that is a common experience when we have celebratory give-aways. Our fellow Stampboarders set a high standard for their posts, and we all enjoy and benefit from their contributions :D
