I do not see any reference to this color shade and I'm thinking it may be either dyed.... or was on a blue paper envelope that bled
any thoughts on this?
and more questions?
I have Sectional Postage Stamp Catalogue, 1971: Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands (Paperback) by Stanley Gibbons (Author)
Is there something more specialized on the early Belgium stamps? Scott WW specialized doesn't really add much and i don't find this to really broaden my scope , compared to Maury | Spinks, etc for France I have a PDF which shows a nice collection.... but still lacking
I don't want just the gravy, I want the meat and potatoes (and you can hold the gravy!) There is this Belgium Specialized Postage Stamp Catalog but all i can find is the 2019 issue (all earlier issues are sold..... and as I only collect up to about circa 1950....2019n only if I must) If anyone has an older edition and would like tonpart with it, PM with terms!
adding on to my lengthy list of questions - anyone have knowledge of Philex Belgien/Belgium Stamp Catalogue?
finally enough #9 to compare 1,2 & 3 (from L-R) appear to be different shades although #1 is the only sound stamp of the 3 #4 looks to be same color as #2 (maybe lighter?) but the cyclops thin is unfortunate (looks like maybe a hinge was the culprit)
#2 is too closely trimmed, but matches the dimension 17.5 mm x 22mm (left side)
#3 has the torn top right corner but it does miss the edge of the printed area (just barely)
anyone with examples of #9 (...#9...#9... sorry to Sgt. Pepper) please post
and could someone translate "Flessegroen/vert bouteille... I'm not having much luck with the translator.....
There are 4 shades of green Green, pale green, dark green and the above..... on thin paper, and only green on thick
still need some examples of #5 ... these are proving harder to find the 1,2, 3 and 4
