 Ini adalah definisi yang tepat dari kata “RARE”. Karena hanya satu contoh dari cap ini dikenal maka harus langka. Ada banyak prangko dengan hanya satu contoh dikenal walaupun hanya beberapa dari mereka mungkin berhak untuk mendapatkan nomor katalog terpisah. Item Islandia adalah kesalahan dan digunakan saham lebih tua sebagai dasar untuk, mencetak di 1902 biasanya Perf tersebut. 14 x 13 1/2 6a. ini overprinted di Carmine, yang juga sangat langka tapi yang satu ini overprinted di Black yang hanya 1 contoh yang pernah dicatat. Sebagian besar overprinted pada 6a tersebut. berada di cetak nanti yang berlubang 12 1/2,

ho, ho!
Agaknya lembar keseluruhan harus dicetak, tapi yang lain tidak bertahan …. meskipun yang satu ini tampaknya tidak digunakan, sehingga membuat Anda bertanya-tanya apakah itu menyelinap keluar dari printer oleh seseorang pada saat itu.

Seperti Swedia Tre Skilling Yellow, cap ini juga memiliki sejarah kontroversial. Tapi TIDAK unik.

http://www.scc-online.org/old/ph05feb.pdf

Mencolok dengan ketiadaan dari daftar atau bahkan menyebutkan dalam katalog besar, misalnya, Scott, Gibbons,
Michel, dan Yvert, adalah Islandia sangat menarik dan relatif jarang Ã?? Gildi mencetak di berbagai warna.

Ini adalah cap 16-aur kontroversial, ½ 14×13 berlubang, overprinted dengan warna merah, bukan hitam. Perangko tersebut sering disebut sebagai salah satu Ã?? Gildi “Ferrarities,” memiliki pertama kali muncul diantara koleksi prangko kolektor terkenal Philipp von la Rénotià ¨ re Ferrary.

Hal itu disertai ada oleh tiga merah lainnya varietas warna bukan-of-hitam biaya tambahan (di 14×13 berlubang ½ 50 – dan 100-aur perangko dan di atas materai 12 berlubang ¾ 10-aur), yang dikelompokkan dalam kategori yang sama “kesalahan” dan dianggap unik.

Sayangnya, koleksi besar Ferrary, yang dilelang pada awal tahun 1920 setelah nya
kematian pada tahun 1917, mencakup tidak hanya beberapa langka dunia terbesar, tetapi palsu juga banyak.

Akibatnya, selama bertahun-tahun setelah itu, semua empat dari merah surcharged varietas dipandang oleh banyak pakar terkemuka Islandia filateli, termasuk Lundgaard pada tahun 1941 laporan yang tidak diterbitkan dan kemudian oleh Pihl pada tahun 1946 publikasi, Kepulauan Frimerker, sebagai palsu langsung.

Ini pemalsuan bisa dengan mudah dilakukan oleh Benjamin & Sarpy dan dijual ke Ferrari (Ferrary) sebagaimana dijelaskan dalam posting terakhir dari topik saya – klik di sini:

Langka perangko investasi sekarang ‘lebih baik dari pasar saham
Kita melihat mengapa prangko tertagih menawarkan tingkat keandalan pasar keuangan tradisional tidak bisa cocok

Sampai saat ini, Anda mungkin tidak pernah berpikir untuk berinvestasi dalam perangko langka. Namun dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, semakin banyak investor telah berpaling perhatian mereka untuk melakukan diversifikasi portofolio aset mereka dengan berinvestasi di pasar cap – dan dengan alasan yang baik.

Merrill Lynch, cabang investasi dari The Bank of America, menyarankan investor tinggi layak untuk mencari investasi 10% dari modal dalam sumber-sumber alternatif – istilah umum yang mencakup perangko langka. Dan ketika Anda melihat angka-angka, mudah untuk melihat mengapa.

Para GB30 Rarities indeks adalah panduan definitif untuk nilai 30 perangko Top Inggris jarang direkomendasikan untuk investasi. Dan itu membuat bacaan menarik untuk setiap investor melihat ke arah dunia perangko langka bagi peluang.

Selama periode 2007-2008, indeks GB30 menunjukkan peningkatan keseluruhan 38,6% untuk 30 langka atas Inggris. Nilai dari daftar meningkat lebih jauh pada 2009-2010, dengan peningkatan 7% lebih lanjut.

Para Kirkudbright terkenal Penny Hitam Sampul Hari Pertama
 

Para GB30 diperbarui langka indeks untuk 2010 menunjukkan bahwa lebih dari empat puluh tahun terakhir, telah terjadi peningkatan 6.403% dalam nilai dari tiga puluh perangko langka terdaftar. Selama periode yang sama, pasar harga rumah mengalami peningkatan dari 3,559%.

Angka-angka untuk periode ini juga menunjukkan pertumbuhan yang stabil dalam nilai perangko langka, di samping mengalami fluktuasi di pasar perumahan dan emas.

Jika kita menganalisis persentase pertumbuhan lima tahun dari pasar selama empat puluh tahun terakhir, 1995 angka menunjukkan bahwa nilai harga rumah turun sebesar 12% dari £ 58.982 – £ 51.633. Selama periode yang sama, GB30 langka menikmati peningkatan nilai 5% dari £ 370.750 untuk £ 390.500.

Harga emas berfluktuasi sangat selama 40 tahun terakhir. Pada tahun 1985, pengurangan 38% dalam nilai dari Gold terjadi dengan harga bergerak dari £ 514 sampai £ 317. Selama periode yang sama, GB30 Rarities indeks menikmati pertumbuhan 10% dalam nilai dari £ 309.750 untuk £ 341.500.

Baru-baru ini masih, pada tahun 2000 sebagai gelembung pecah e-commerce, kami juga melihat Harga emas turun 29% dari £ 385 sampai £ 275, dan belum daftar Rarities GB menikmati peningkatan nilai 29% dari £ 390.500 untuk £ 505.250 dalam periode ini.

Para GB30 Rarities indeks telah memberikan pertumbuhan senyawa rata-rata tahunan sebesar 11%. Untuk menempatkan angka ini ke dalam perspektif berdetak inflasi oleh 4,4% rata-rata per tahun.

Perangko investasi booming di Asia, dengan
besar penjualan termasuk Pendapatan Merah ini terkenal
 

Sementara pasar emas, perumahan dan saham terus berfluktuasi, dalam sejarah 40 tahun dari indeks Rarities GB30 tidak pernah ada penurunan nilai dari setiap perangko dalam indeks.

Bahkan selama periode terakhir mengalami inflasi yang tinggi di Inggris – 1975-1980 – nilai perangko langka naik sebesar 593% luar biasa.

Hal ini karena sumber investasi tradisional tunduk pada variasi tergantung pada masalah ekonomi seperti inflasi atau crash di pasar saham.

Para GB30 Rarities indeks dan nilai-nilainya didukung oleh pasar konsumen barat sekitar 30 juta kolektor prangko. Oleh karena itu, ada sedikit kemungkinan dari nilai-nilai dari setiap perangko langka, semalam menghilang.

Yang benar adalah bahwa sementara sumber investasi tradisional telah menyebabkan sakit kepala bagi dunia keuangan, pasar perangko langka tidak bisa lebih sehat.

Pada bulan Juni tahun ini, Robert A Siegel diselenggarakan Dunia tahunan mereka Rarities lelang cap, yang sudah berjalan sejak tahun 1964 di Amerika. Secara keseluruhan, banyak 352 terjual, membawa sejumlah tokoh lima besar dan bahkan enam digit hasil.

Dari banyak bagian tunggal, kedua penjual terbesar keduanya membalikkan dari seri Pan-Amerika, ditemukan di setidaknya empat kantor pos yang berbeda di seluruh Amerika Serikat.

Dan dari dua, yang pertama adalah untuk menjadi salah satu banyak atas: strip dari empat cetakan 1c hijau, yang memiliki serangkaian huruf plat sketsa hitam dan “1c” jejak denominasi – contoh hanya dikenal karena cap 1c.

Banyak yang dijual hampir persis perkiraan pada $ 145.000. Namun, ia dikalahkan oleh contoh kualitas permata dari 2c Pan-Amerika invert. Perangko tersebut memiliki harga diperkirakan sebesar $ 55.000 tetapi pada akhirnya dijual seharga $ 105.000.

Di Inggris, pasar juga terus booming.

Hanya sebulan lalu, dealer cap Stanley Gibbons menyimpulkan kesepakatan untuk salah satu prangko terlangka Inggris: Edward II pada 1904 6d Purple kusam Pucat, seharga £ 400.000.

Juga dikenal sebagai Resmi IR, cap ditarik segera setelah masalah itu pada tanggal 14 Maret 1904.

Menurut para ahli, sebagai sedikit 19 lembar cap dibuat, dan semua lembar hancur setelah overprints resmi telah berakhir. Contoh lain yang dikenal dari cap yang beredar dapat ditemukan di Koleksi Royal dan museum seperti National Postal Museum.

Angka diterbitkan oleh Stanley Gibbons menunjukkan bahwa sejak 2005, Ungu Kusam 6d Pale telah tiga kali lipat nilai. Sementara sejak tahun 2007 telah meningkat sebesar 150%.

Pada ujung bawah pasar, perangko langka yang menikmati keberhasilan di lelang. Yang sangat langka dan penuh warna 1d oranye merah terang, dengan tepi kiri lurus, pergi untuk pelelangan dengan perkiraan 3.500 presale £. Cap, yang telah melakukan perjalanan surat dari Sydney ke Bologna, dijual seharga £ 13.000, hampir empat kali harga perkiraan.

Sejarah di tangan Anda: Vermilion Oranye 1d
 

Pasar perangko langka selanjutnya disahkan melalui kolektor profil tinggi seperti, Bill Gross, pendiri dari Pacific Investment Management (PIMCO).

Pada tahun 2007, Gross dijual koleksi perangko langka awal Inggris untuk $ 10.500.000 di lelang. Dalam New York Times, ia menggambarkan perangko langka sebagai “lebih baik dari pasar saham.” Anda bisa memahami maksudnya. Hanya tujuh tahun sebelumnya, ia telah membeli koleksi langka perangko Persemakmuran Inggris hanya di bawah $ 2.500.000 – mengubah keuntungan lebih dari 300% dalam waktu kurang dari satu dekade.

Sementara minat perangko langka sebagai kendaraan investasi terus berkembang di dunia barat, dekade terakhir telah melihat perkembangan pasar di China dan India pengisian bahan bakar permintaan.

Dalam dekade terakhir, kelas menengah dasar kolektor baru telah muncul dari Brazil, Rusia, India, dan China, atau dikenal sebagai negara-negara BRIC.

Jim O’Neil Kepala Riset Ekonomi Global di Goldman Sachs pertama menciptakan istilah “BRIC” dalam tahun 2001.

Dalam laporan 2003 “Dreaming dengan BRICs: Jalan untuk tahun 2050,” Goldman Sachs menduga hal berikut:

“Selama 50 tahun ke depan, Brasil, Rusia, India dan China-BRICs ekonomi-bisa menjadi kekuatan yang jauh lebih besar dalam perekonomian dunia. Menggunakan proyeksi demografi terbaru dan model akumulasi modal dan pertumbuhan produktivitas, kita merencanakan pertumbuhan PDB , pendapatan per kapita dan pergerakan mata uang di negara-negara BRIC sampai 2050.

Jika ada yang benar, dalam waktu kurang dari 40 tahun, ekonomi BRICs bersama-sama dapat lebih besar dari G6 dalam dolar AS. Pada tahun 2025, mereka dapat menjelaskan lebih dari setengah ukuran G6. Saat ini mereka bernilai kurang dari 15%. Dari G6 saat ini, hanya AS dan Jepang mungkin di antara enam perekonomian terbesar dalam dolar AS pada 2050. “

Dari jumlah tersebut Bangsa BRIC, Cina telah muncul dengan pasar langka yang luas dan cepat berkembang cap kolektor yang diperkirakan sekitar 18 juta kolektor.

Pasar cap Cina adalah menciptakan harga rekor dunia juga.

Pada bulan September 2009, salah satu kolektor Cina, dibayar $ 331.671 untuk satu cap Pendapatan Merah, yang merupakan salah satu dari 32 kiri dari dinasti Qing 1897 Cina.

Ini adalah Rekor Dunia Harga untuk penjualan perangko Cina tunggal, tetapi lebih dari tiga bulan kemudian, contoh lain, dijual seharga $ 711.600, lebih dari dua kali lipat jumlah yang dibayar hanya empat bulan sebelumnya.

Sementara pasar Cina baru terus tumbuh, pasar cap Barat langka segera juga mengalami peningkatan jumlah kolektor.

Di AS dan Inggris, angka pensiun diatur untuk meledak pada dekade berikutnya, dengan sekitar 95.000 dari generasi baby boomer 1950 pensiun setiap minggu dari negara-negara saja. Ahli Koleksi mengantisipasi tingkat peningkatan minat pada hobi dan barang-barang nostalgia di antara kelompok ini.

Tambahkan ke ini tingkat tinggi dari pendapatan yang tersedia ke grup besar dan Anda memiliki potensi untuk permintaan lebih lanjut untuk prangko langka.

Museum dan lembaga yang mengambil minat dalam perangko langka juga. Bill Gross baru-baru ini menyumbangkan $ 8.000.000 senilai perangko langka untuk sebuah galeri di Smithsonian Museum Pos Nasional yang akan dibuka pada 2012.

The Yellow Treskilling sangat berharga
 

Hari ini, perangko langka juga merupakan komoditas yang paling berharga di dunia dengan berat badan. Hal ini disebabkan salah satu Stamp semacam “Treskilling Kuning”, yang baru saja terjual di lelang seharga £ 1.600.000. Perangko tersebut sebelumnya dijual seharga $ 2.330.000 pada tahun 1996 dan disamakan menjadi senilai $ 71000000000 per kilogram.

Para minat baru dalam perangko langka berasal dari kekayaan global yang baru ditemukan, minat baru di pasar dan daya tarik keuangan jelas memiliki toko sangat portabel dan diakui kekayaan.

Seperti setiap investor yang bijaksana akan memberitahu Anda, masih tentang membuat pilihan yang tepat dalam investasi perangko langka Anda. Membeli apapun perangko dapat meninggalkan Anda siap untuk daftar kartu Natal tahun depan, tapi kunci untuk investasi apapun adalah untuk penelitian pembelian Anda. Cobalah untuk mendapatkan pendapat kedua dari seseorang dengan pengetahuan perangko koleksi langka.

Adrian Roose, cap investasi ahli Paul Fraser Koleksi, menjelaskan: “itu pasokan sempurna dan permintaan pasar Permintaan meningkat terutama dari Cina dan pasokan berkurang sebagai koleksi lebih besar yang disumbangkan ke museum..”

Dengan pasar diatur untuk boom, investasi semacam ini mungkin saja kesempatan Anda untuk mencari tahu mengapa Bill Gross memandang investasi perangko langka sebagai “lebih baik dari pasar saham.”

Filateli-
Raja Hobi
 

Mengumpulkan perangko memiliki hari ini

Menjadi

 salah satu hobi yang paling populer

 di dunia.

 Hal ini secara luas dikenal sebagai

 “Raja Hobi dan Hobby of Kings”,

meskipun Raja dan Maharajas kini telah menjadi obyek sejarah. Tiga terakhir raja-raja Inggris adalah kolektor tajam seperti Ratu ini. Di Amerika Serikat, mantan Presiden Franklin Roosevelt adalah pendukung dalam filateli dan mantan presiden Ford adalah seorang kolektor perangko rahasia. Selama bertahun-tahun, Kings, Queens, Politisi, miskin, kaya, pengusaha, akuntan, bintang film, ilmuwan dan banyak orang lain di bidang yang berbeda telah mengejar hobi ini dengan minat. Singkatnya, anak-anak, muda, tua dan semua orang yang terlibat dalam hobi terlepas dari usia atau posisi. Ini benar-benar secara benar disebut ‘Filateli-Raja Hobi.

Koleksi perangko tidak hanya memberikan kenikmatan tetapi juga meningkatkan pengetahuan kita.

Orang mungkin mendapatkan kenikmatan dengan melihat prangko tetapi tidak akan menjadi pengetahuan dengan melihat itu. Untuk ini, kita harus mencari pengetahuan dalam literatur masa lalu dan sekarang filateli.

————————————————– ——————————

Filateli dan Filatelis yang

Filateli adalah nama yang diberikan untuk mengumpulkan perangko. Siswa perangko disebut filatelis.

Kata ‘Filatelis’

 berasal dari dua kata Yunani, “Philos ‘, yang berarti’ cinta ‘dan’ atelos ‘atau” bebas pajak, atau dibayar. Prangko adalah tanda-tanda bahwa perangko atau pajak, telah dibayar.

Ini adalah studi dan koleksi perangko dan pendapatan, label dan sampul hari pertama.

  MG Herpin orang Perancis telah memberikan nama ini “Filateli” untuk mengumpulkan perangko.

 Bahkan, filateli sangat erat terkait dengan layanan pos dan Departemen. Kata “Postia” berasal dari kata Latin “Pos” berarti “Tempat”. Ini diperoleh makna yang tepat terhubung dengan membawa Surat di bagian akhir dari usia pertengahan.

Filateli adalah hobi yang sangat baik.

 Ini menyebarkan kebosanan yang, sesuatu yang tak hidup dan kelemahan. Ini memberikan waktu keterlibatan penuh dan kenikmatan. Apakah itu hujan atau bersinar atau apakah itu siang atau malam, menyebabkan gangguan tidak untuk siapa pun. Bit-bit kecil dari kertas (Prangko) yang elegan dan imajinatif penonton merasa seolah-olah ia bepergian di negeri-negeri jauh saat ia melihat pemandangan indah, piramida, pigmi, kanguru, teratai, potret burung patriot dan berbagai tema lain. Prangko adalah utusan perdamaian Internasional baik, kehendak dan persahabatan dan telah menjadi media komunikasi gagasan budaya, sastra, agama, ilmu pengetahuan, perdagangan, sejarah dan industri. Berbagai jenis ide menyebar melalui perangko yang pergi ke semua pria dan wanita di seluruh dunia dan itu benar-benar global. Pemenang Hadiah Nobel fisikawan Hans Bethe “kata,

“Stamp mengumpulkan adalah hobi tertib dan album saya adalah satu-satunya tempat aku tahu pada saat mana bangsa-bangsa di dunia bersama tongkat damai”.

Ini hobi yang unik mengembangkan ‘Lima Hs’ yaitu Kepala, Tangan, Jantung, Kebiasaan dan Kesehatan.

Pengetahuan melalui pengumpulan stempel, adalah slogan pengumpulan Tropis Amerika, Asosiasi Tematik (koleksi berdasarkan tema tertentu atau atas a) meningkatkan nilai-nilai pendidikan dan memberikan insentif untuk hobi ini.

Bagi mahasiswa di India,

disarankan untuk mengumpulkan prangko Pos India periode Pasca Kemerdekaan sebagai perangko ini tidak hanya mudah tersedia dan murah tetapi juga menanamkan minat berkelanjutan dalam hobi itu sendiri.

————————————————– ——————————

Hari Pertama Meliputi
 

Sampul hari pertama adalah amplop khusus bantalan stempel digunakan dan pasca ditandai pada hari masalah juga dapat dikumpulkan. Folder khusus dibawa keluar pada saat isu tersebut harus dikumpulkan dan dipelajari karena memberikan banyak informasi dan meningkatkan pengetahuan umum.

  
Sebuah SAMPUL HARI PERTAMA DITERBITKAN DI 1981 (Dari koleksi PV)
 

Filateli bukan hanya subjek seni tetapi juga ilmu pengetahuan itu sendiri. Pertanyaan seperti “Apa, Kapan, Mengapa dan mana”, yang Ws lima selalu ditanyakan dan dijawab “Sebuah gambar adalah seribu kata” adalah pepatah dan ini pepatah lama dapat tepat diterapkan pada setiap halaman album dari setiap koleksi topikal, ditata secara artistik dengan baik menulis-up.

Hobby perangko pengumpulan menjadi lebih dan lebih populer di negara kita. Beberapa tahun lalu ada tidak begitu banyak kolektor atau masyarakat atau klub seperti sekarang dan pada hari naik hari. Hal ini menunjukkan popularitas dan kemajuan filateli. Beberapa masyarakat utama dan filatelis banyak dan tentu saja Post & Telegraph Departemen telah memberikan kontribusi luar biasa terhadap pertumbuhan hobi ini. Tingkat kabupaten ke negara, Nasional dan Pameran Internasional di sepuluh tahun terakhir telah tercerahkan ribuan orang yang tertarik pada semua aspek hobi ini. Saat ini ada majalah dan masyarakat banyak literatur untuk memandu orang yang ingin tahu lebih banyak tentang negara kita ini juga bangsa lain itu filateli.

Sebuah Filatelis baik mengumpulkan perangko untuk kesenangan murni mereka berasal daripada aspek nilai yang insidentil.

Salah satu kolektor prangko pertama tercatat dalam sejarah adalah seorang wanita dari Isle of Wight (U. K.) yang memulai perangko bersasaran mengumpulkan pada tahun 1841. Saat itu, ada beberapa prangko yang diterbitkan di seluruh dunia. Dia pergi untuk kuantitas dengan sebuah ide untuk kertas dinding kamarnya dan dia meminta bantuan dari teman-teman dan kerabat dan menerima paket perangko digunakan. Salah satu bidang tersebut meledak di Kantor Pos mengakibatkan penyelidikan polisi. Pada akhirnya ditemukan bahwa dia bukan penipuan tapi hanya penggemar tidak berbahaya. Dari awal naas sedikit, cap pengumpulan hari ini telah menjadi salah satu hobi yang paling populer di dunia.

PERTAMA POSTAGE STAMP DUNIA ADHESIVE ‘SATU Penny Black’

Perangko pertama di dunia perekat, Black Penny diterbitkan di Inggris pada tanggal 6 Mei 1840. Ini hanya sedikit kertas, dicetak dengan motif hitam kepala Ratu, namun memiliki keindahan tersendiri dan pesona dan merupakan kepemilikan untuk pamer. Ini menandakan kedatangan era baru dalam sejarah komunikasi. Tidak hanya itu mengurangi bahaya dari mengumpulkan perangko tetapi juga merevolusi sistem komunikasi. Kisah kelahirannya adalah salah satu yang menarik.

Pada awalnya biaya untuk pengiriman surat-perangko-dihitung dengan cara yang rumit.

Dispatcher akan mengambil surat itu ke kantor pos. Ada orang yang bertanggung jawab akan berat atau kadang-kadang jumlah halaman akan dihitung dan kemudian jarak surat itu harus bepergian akan dihitung sesuai biaya ongkos kirim dibebankan. Jika ongkos kirim dibayar di muka ‘prabayar’ pejabat pos akan menandai muatan pada huruf warna merah dan hitam. Kadang-kadang jika uang itu akan pulih dari penerima, sebagian besar waktu itu mengarah pada kerugian sebagai pembayaran ditolak atau surat ditolak. Ini menyebabkan orang untuk menemukan beberapa metode baru untuk menyederhanakan sistem email melelahkan.

Dua penerbit James Chalmers dan Charles Ksatria menyarankan adopsi pembungkus untuk prabayar harga mengirimkan surat kabar. Chalmers menyarankan sepotong potong kertas dalam lingkaran menyerupai kursi, yang akan memungkinkan pengirim untuk prabayar prangko. Dia membuat beberapa sampel pada pers, tapi sayangnya, tidak pernah terwujud. Dengan demikian, James Chalmers ayah evolusi cap.

Ayah dari perangko perekat
 

Setelah Rowland Hill (Bapak Stempel Pos perekat, anggota masyarakat untuk pendidikan populer berlibur di sebuah desa kecil di Skotlandia pada 1836. Sementara mengambil pagi berjalan ia menyaksikan adegan menyedihkan, yang membuka jalan untuk yayasan untuk saat ini sistem pos. Pemandangan itu sangat menarik seorang tukang pos menyerahkan surat kepada seorang gadis desa dan meminta pembayaran bea pos Gadis-gadis terus terang menolak surat dan biaya pos, di bawah alasan yang dia tidak mampu membayar.. Melihat penderitaan para gadis itu Rowland membayar biaya untuk tukang pos dan memberikan surat itu kepada gadis itu Gadis jengkel dengan perilaku Hill, membuka surat itu,. menunjukkan Hill, dan berkata, lihat, tidak ada tertulis di dalam dan apa pun tunangannya di London inginkan, untuk menyampaikan itu ditandai pada surat dengan kode Kami berkomunikasi dengan cara ini.. Versi lain dari cerita ini adalah bahwa, karena gadis yang miskin dan dia tidak bisa membayar ongkos kirim. Namun, Hill tegas memutuskan untuk menyederhanakan sistem dan membuat layanan pos dalam jangkauan untuk masyarakat umum.

————————————————– ——————————

Rowland Hill Pos Reformasi
Rowland Hill menyiapkan kertas yang disebut “Reformasi Pos” pentingnya dan obat yang tepat dari reformasi sistem pos ‘(Judul lain dari makalahnya dikatakan’ Kantor Pos, pentingnya dan kepraktisan ‘). Dia menekankan akuntansi memberatkan terlibat dalam mengirimkan surat dan mengusulkan agar evaluasi ongkos kirim sesuai dengan jumlah halaman dan jarak yang ditempuh harus berhenti, melainkan tarif tetap harus diperbaiki terlepas dari jarak. Dia merasa bahwa adalah wajar untuk biaya tambahan untuk lebih huruf berat badan. Pembentukan tarif seragam sehingga menghilangkan sistem sulit biaya dan mendorong pembayaran di muka bahwa ia berharap akan menjadi aturan daripada pengecualian. Dia juga mengusulkan penerapan lembar surat dicap dan pembungkus, yang masyarakat bisa membeli di muka, dan berita-berita setiap saat di kotak pos ditempatkan di tempat yang nyaman, bahkan ketika kantor pos ditutup.

Selain reformasi ini, dia juga menunjukkan bahwa saat lembar surat prabayar tidak tersedia, perekat label kecil dapat dibuat tersedia. Dia menyatakan lebih lanjut bahwa kesulitan mungkin dicegah dengan menggunakan sedikit kertas. Hal ini dapat ditutupi dengan mencuci di belakang lengket, yang pembawa tersebut mungkin penerapan kelembaban kecil, menempel pada bagian belakang surat itu sehingga untuk menghindari perlunya mengarahkan (dalam kasus penolakan ongkos kirim) saran ini telah memberikan Rowland bukit kredit disebut sebagai “Bapak cap pos perekat”.

Meskipun ada pertentangan yang kuat, parlemen enggan menerima usulan untuk sistem ongkos kirim seragam. Ia pada 10 Jan 1840 Post Penny sistem mulai berlaku. Sebelum itu pada tahun 1839, Departemen Keuangan Inggris memutuskan untuk melakukan kompetisi untuk prangko mungkin. Ada yang sekitar 2.600 karya yang dikirim tetapi hanya empat puluh sembilan yang berhubungan dengan perangko perekat dan sembilan belas untuk perangko perekat. Dari yang hanya sembilan belas orang terpilih dan akhirnya empat hadiah seratus pon diberikan ke entri. Desain Rowland Hill juga juga salah satu di antara mereka.

Rowland Hill dan saudaranya Edwin membuat beberapa sketsa Ratu muda. Kemudian pada tahun 1839 pekerjaan mereka telah diterima dan mencetaknya Mar 1840, (Penny Black dan Dua Penny Blue) oleh menyemangati, Bacon dan Perch di Air Crown Ditandai Keamanan Kertas dan imperf-orated dan harus dipotong dari lembaran dengan Gunting . Pada bulan-bulan berikut ini produksi dimulai dan didistribusikan kepada kantor pos dan tersedia untuk umum di tanggal satu Mei 1840 sehingga Rowland Hill menjadi Hero dan Bapa perangko perekat.

Rowland Hill mengembangkan sistem ongkos kirim seragam pada tahun 1840. Ini adalah bagaimana Stamp Pos ini berasal dan ditakdirkan untuk memiliki masa depan yang besar di bidang komunikasi di seluruh dunia. Pada tahun 1979 tahun dunia merayakan seratus tahun kematiannya dan banyak negara menerbitkan perangko dalam nama-Nya.

Amerika Serikat tidak datang ke dalam gambar sampai 1847. Pada saat itu banyak negara merilis perangko mereka sendiri. Di antara mereka adalah Brasil, Mauritius dan kanton-kanton (negara) dari Swiss. Di tahun 1860 hampir setiap negara mengadopsi perangko sebagai metode membayar biaya pos.

It is the exact definition of the word ” RARE “. As only one example of this stamp is known then it has to be rare. There are many stamps with only one example known although only some of them may be entitled to a separate catalogue number. The Iceland item was an error and used older stock as the basis for the 1902 overprint, normally the perf. 14 x 13 1/2 6a. was overprinted in Carmine, which is also very scarce but this one was overprinted in Black of which only 1 example has ever been noted. Most of the overprinted on the 6a. were on the later printing which was perforated 12 1/2,David B.

Presumably a whole sheet must have printed, but the rest did not survive….though this one is not apparently used, so it makes you wonder if it was snuck out of the printers by someone at the time.

Like the Sweden Tre Skilling Yellow, this stamp also has a controversial history. But is NOT unique.

http://www.scc-online.org/old/ph05feb.pdf

Conspicuous by its absence from listing or even mention in major catalogs, e.g., Scott, Gibbons,
Michel, and Yvert, is an especially interesting and relatively rare Iceland Í Gildi overprint color variety.

This is the controversial 16-aur stamp, perforated 14×13½, overprinted in red instead of black. The stamp is often referred to as one of the Í Gildi “Ferrarities,” having first appeared among the collection of well known stamp collector Philipp la Rénotière von Ferrary.

It was accompanied there by three other red instead-of-black surcharge color varieties (on the perforated 14×13½ 50- and 100-aur stamps and on the perforated 12¾ 10-aur stamp), which were lumped into the same “error” category and thought to be unique.

Unfortunately, Ferrary’s massive collection, which was auctioned off in the early 1920s following his
death in 1917, included not only some of the world greatest rarities, but many fakes as well.

As a result, for many years thereafter, all four of these red-surcharged varieties were viewed by many prominent Iceland philatelic experts, including Lundgaard in his 1941 unpublished report and subsequently by Pihl in his 1946 publication, Islands Frimerker, as outright fakes.

Rare stamps investments are now ‘better than the stock market’

We look at why collectible stamps offer a level of reliability the traditional financial markets can’t match

Until now, you have probably never thought of investing in rare stamps. However in recent years, more and more investors have turned their attentions to diversifying their asset portfolio by investing in the stamp markets – and with good reason.

Merrill Lynch, the investment branch of The Bank of America, advises their high worth investors to seek a 10% investment of capital in alternative sources – an umbrella term that includes rare stamps. And when you look at the figures, it’s easy to see why.

The GB30 Rarities index is a definitive guide to the value of the Top 30 rare British stamps recommended for investments. And it makes interesting reading for any investors looking towards the world of rare stamps for opportunities.

During the period of 2007-2008, the GB30 index showed an overall  increase of 38.6% for the top 30 British rarities. The value of the list increased even further in 2009-2010, with a further 7% increase.


The famous Kirkudbright Penny Black First Day Cover


The updated GB30 rarities index for 2010 shows that over the past forty years, there has been a 6,403% increase in the value of the thirty rare stamps listed. Over the same period, the house price market has seen an increase of 3,559%.

The figures for this period also indicate the steady growth in the value of rare stamps, alongside the fluctuation experienced in the housing and gold markets.

If we analyse the five-year growth percentages of the market over the past forty years, the 1995 figures show that the value of house prices went down by 12% from £58,982-£51,633. During the same period, the GB30 rarities enjoyed an increase in value of 5% from £370,750 to £390,500.

Gold prices have fluctuated greatly during the past 40 years. In 1985, a 38% reduction in the value of Gold occurred with prices moving from £514 to £317. During this same period, the GB30 Rarities index enjoyed a 10% growth in value from £309,750 to £341,500.

More recently still, in the year 2000 as the e-commerce bubble burst, we also saw Gold prices dropping 29% from £385 to £275, and yet the GB Rarities list enjoyed a 29% value increase from £390,500 to £505,250 within this period.

The GB30 Rarities index has delivered average annual compound growth of 11%. To put this figure into perspective it beats inflation by an average 4.4% per annum.


Stamps investments are booming in Asia, with
big sales including this famous Red Revenue


While the gold, housing and stock markets continue to fluctuate, in the 40 year history of the GB30 Rarities index there has never been a decrease in the value of any stamps within the index.

Even during the last period of high inflation experienced in Britain – from 1975 to 1980 – the value of rare stamps rose by an incredible 593%.

This is because traditional investment sources are subject to variation depending on economic issues like inflation or a crash in the stock market.

The GB30 Rarities index and its values are underpinned by a western consumer market of some 30 million stamp collectors. Therefore, there is little chance of the values of any rare stamps, disappearing overnight.

The truth is that while traditional investment sources have been causing headaches for the financial world, the rare stamp market could not be healthier.

In June this year, Robert A Siegel held their annual World Rarities stamp auction, which has been running since 1964 in America.  Overall, 352 lots were sold, bringing a number of substantial five-figure and even six-figure results.

Of the single piece lots, the two biggest sellers were both inverts from the Pan-American series, found in at least four different post offices around the United States.

And of the two, the first was to be one of the top lots: a strip of four green 1c imprints, which has a string of vignette plate letters in black and “1c” denomination imprint – the only known example for the 1c stamp.

The lot sold for almost exactly its estimate at $145,000. However, it was upstaged by a gem quality example of the 2c Pan-American invert. The stamp had an estimated price of $55,000 but in the end sold for $105,000.

In the United Kingdom, the market also continues to boom.

Just a month ago, stamp dealers Stanley Gibbons concluded a deal for one of Britain’s rarest stamps: the 1904 Edward II 6d Pale Dull Purple, for £400,000.

Also known as the IR Official, the stamp was withdrawn almost immediately after it’s issue on March 14, 1904.

According to experts, as little 19 sheets of the stamp were made, and  all the sheets were destroyed once the official overprints were ceased. Other known examples of this stamp in circulation can be found in the Royal Collection and museums like the National Postal Museum.

Figures published by Stanley Gibbons show that since 2005, the 6d Pale Dull Purple has trebled in value. While since 2007 it has increased by 150%.

At the lower end of the market, rare stamps are enjoying success at auction. An extremely rare and colourful 1d orange-vermilion, with a straight left edge, went up for auction with a £3,500 presale estimate. The stamp, which had travelled on a letter from Sydney to Bologna, sold for £13,000, nearly four times the estimated price.


History in your hands: the 1d Orange Vermilion

 

The rare stamp market is further endorsed through high profile collectors like, Bill Gross, co founder of Pacific Investment Management (PIMCO).

In 2007, Gross sold a collection of early British rare stamps for $10,500,000 at auction. In the New York Times, he described rare stamps as “better than the stock market.” You could understand his point.  Just seven years earlier, he had bought the collection of rare British Commonwealth stamps for just under $2,500,000 – turning a profit of just over 300% in less than a decade.

While interest in rare stamps as an investment vehicle continues to develop in the western world, the last decade has seen the development of rising markets in China and India fuelling the demand.

In the past decade, a new middle class collector base has emerged from Brazil, Russia, India, and China, otherwise known as the BRIC nations.

Jim O’Neil Head of Global Economic Research at Goldman Sachs first coined the term “BRIC” in 2001.

In the 2003 report “Dreaming with BRICs: The Path to 2050,” Goldman Sachs surmised the following:

“Over the next 50 years, Brazil, Russia, India and China—the BRICs economies—could become a much larger force in the world economy. Using the latest demographic projections and a model of capital accumulation and productivity growth, we map out GDP growth, income per capita and currency movements in the BRICs economies until 2050.

 

If things go right, in less than 40 years, the BRICs economies together could be larger than the G6 in US dollar terms. By 2025, they could account for over half the size of the G6. Currently they are worth less than 15%. Of the current G6, only the US and Japan may be among the six largest economies in US dollar terms in 2050.”

Of these BRIC Nations, China have emerged with a vast and quickly developing rare stamp collectors market which is estimated at around 18 million collectors.

The Chinese stamp market is creating world record prices too.

In September 2009, one Chinese collector, paid $331,671 for one Red Revenue stamp, which was one of 32 left from the 1897 Chinese Qing dynasty.

This was the World Record price for the sale a single Chinese stamp, but just over three months later, another example, sold for $711,600, over double the amount paid just four months earlier.

While the new Chinese market continues to grow, the Western rare stamp market may soon also experience an increase in the number of collectors.

In the US and UK, retirement figures are set to explode over the next decade, with approximately 95,000 of the 1950s baby boomer generation retiring every week from these countries alone. Collectibles experts anticipate an increased level of interest in hobbies and items of nostalgia amongst this group.

Add to this the high levels of disposable income available to this large group and you have the potential for further demand for rare stamps.

Museums and institutions are taking an interest in rare stamps too. Bill Gross recently donated $8,000,000 worth of rare stamps to a gallery at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum that is to open in 2012.


The exceptionally valuable Treskilling Yellow


Today, rare stamps also represent the most valuable commodity in the world by weight. This is due to the one of a kind “Treskilling Yellow” Stamp, which recently sold at auction for £1,600,000. The stamp had previously sold for $2,330,000 in 1996 and equated to being worth $71,000,000,000 per kilogram.

The renewed interest in rare stamps comes from newfound global wealth, a renewed interest in the market and the obvious financial appeal of possessing a highly portable and recognized store of wealth.

As any wise investor will tell you, it is still about making the right choice in your rare stamp investment. Buying up any stamps may leave you well prepared for next year’s Christmas card list, but the key to any investment is to research your purchase. Try to get a second opinion from someone with knowledge of rare collectible stamps.

Adrian Roose, stamp investment expert at Paul Fraser Collectibles, explains: “it’s the perfect supply and demand market. Demand is increasing especially from China and the supply is diminishing as more great collections are donated to museums.”

With markets set to boom, an investment of this kind might just be your chance to find out just why Bill Gross views rare stamp investment as “better than the stock market.”

 

Philately-

The King of Hobbies

 

 

Stamp collecting has today

Become

 one of the most popular hobbies

 in the world.

 It  is widely known as

 “The king of Hobbies and the Hobby of Kings”,

even though Kings and Maharajas have now become a historical object.  The last three kings of England were keen collectors as is the present Queen.  In the United States, former President Franklin Roosevelt was a stalwart in philately and ex-president Ford was a secret stamp collector.  Over the years, Kings, Queens, Politicians, poor, rich, business persons, accountants, film stars, scientists and many others in different field have pursued this hobby with keen interest.  In short, children, young, old and everyone is involved in this hobby irrespective of their age or positions. It truly is correctly called ‘Philately-The King of Hobbies.

 

Stamp collection gives not only enjoyment but also it increases our knowledge. 

One may get enjoyment by looking at the stamps but will not become knowledgeable by looking at it.  For this, one has to search for knowledge in the past and present literatures of philately.


Philately and the Philatelist

Philately is the name given to postage stamp collecting. Students of stamps are called philatelists.

 

The word ‘philatelist’  

 come from two Greek words, ‘Philos’, meaning ‘loving’ and ‘atelos’, meaning ‘free of tax, or paid’.  Stamps are the signs that the postage or tax, has been paid.

It is the study and collection of postage and revenue stamps, labels and first day covers.

  M G Herpin the French man has given this name “Philately” for stamp collecting

 In fact, philately is very closely associated with postal services and Department.  The word “Postia” is derived from the Latin word “Postal” means “Place”.  It obtained the exact meaning connected with the carrying of Letters in the later part of the middle age.

Philately is an excellent hobby

 It disperses ones boredom, lifelessness and weakness.  It gives full time engagement and enjoyment.  Whether it rains or shines or whether it is day or night, causing no disturbance to anybody.  These tiny bits of papers (Stamps) are elegantly imaginative and the viewer feels as though he travels in distant lands as he seen beautiful landscapes, pyramids, pygmies, kangaroos, lotus, birds portraits of our patriots and a variety of other themes.  Stamps are messengers of International good will, peace and amity and it has become a medium of communication of ideas of culture, literature, religion, science, commerce, history and industry. Different kinds of ideas spread through stamps that go to all men and women all over the world and it is truly global.  Nobel Prize winner physicists ‘Hans Bethe’ said,

“Stamp collecting is an orderly hobby and my album is the only place I know at the moment where the nations of the world stick together peaceably”.

This unique hobby develops the ‘Five Hs’ namely Head, Hands, Heart, Habit and Health.

Knowledge through stamp collecting, is the slogan of the American Tropical Association, Thematic collecting (collection on the basis of a particular theme or a top) improves the educational values and gives a incentive to this hobby.

For a student in India,

it is advisable to collect Indian Postage stamps of the Post-Independence period as these stamps are not only easily available and cheap but also inculcate a sustained interest in the hobby itself.


 

First Day Covers

 

First day covers are special envelopes bearing stamps used and post marked on the day of issue may also be collected.  The special folders brought out at the time of the issue must be collected and studied as it gives a wealth of information and increases general knowledge.

 

 

A FIRST DAY COVER ISSUED IN 1981 (From the collections of PV)

Philately is not only a subject of art but also a science in itself.  Questions like “What, When, Why and Where”, the five Ws are always asked and answered “A picture is a thousand words” is a proverb and this old saying can be aptly applied to each album page of any topical collection, artistically arranged with a good write-up.

Hobby of collecting stamps is become more and more popular in our country.  Few years ago there were not so many collectors or societies or clubs as they are today and on increase day by day. This shows the popularity and progress of philately.  Some of the premier societies and many philatelists and of course Post & Telegraph Department have contributed tremendously towards the growth of this hobby.  District level to state, National and International Exhibitions in the last ten years have enlightened thousands of interested persons on all aspects of this hobby.  Today there are society magazines and plenty of literature to guide one who wants to know more about our country’s as well as other nation’s philately.

A good philatelist collects stamps for the pure pleasure they derive rather than the value aspect which is incidental.

One of the first stamp collectors recorded in history was a lady from the Isle of Wight  (U .K.)  who started colleting stamps in 1841.  At that time, there were few stamps issued around the world.  She went for quantity with an idea to paper the walls of her room and she asked for help from her friends and relatives and received parcels of used stamps.  One of such parcels bursting in the Post Office resulted in a police enquiry.  Ultimately it was found that she was not a fraud but just a harmless enthusiast.  From this little ill-fated start, stamp collecting has today become one of the most popular hobbies in the world.


 

Evolution of the stamp

 

.

WORLD’S FIRST ADHESIVE POSTAGE STAMP ‘ONE PENNY BLACK’

The world’s first adhesive postage stamp, the Penny Black was issued in Great Britain on May 6, 1840.   It is just a bit of paper, printed with a black motif of Queen’s head, yet it has its own beauty and charm and is a possession to show off. It heralded the arrival of a new era in the history of communication.  Not only did it ease the hazards of collecting postage but also revolutionized the communication system.  The story of its birth is an interesting one.

In the beginning the charge for transmission of letters—postage—was calculated in a complicated way

The dispatcher would take the letter to the post office.  There the person in charge would weigh it or sometimes the number of page will be counted and then the distance the letter had to travel will be calculated accordingly the postage charge is charged. If the postage is paid in advance ‘pre-paid’ the postal official would mark the charge on the letter in red and black.  Sometimes if the money was to be recovered from the addressee, most of the time it leads to losses as payment was refused or letter was rejected.  This lead people to find some new method of simplifying the tiresome mail system.

Two publishers James Chalmers and Charles Knight suggested adoption of wrappers to prepay postage on newspapers.  Chalmers suggested a piece of paper cut in a circle resembling a seat, which would enable the sender to prepay the postage.  He made some samples at his press, but unfortunately, it never materialized.   Thus, James Chalmers fathered the evolution of stamp.


 

 

 

Father of the adhesive postage stamp

 

Once Rowland Hill (Father of adhesive Postage Stamp, a member of a society for popular education was holidaying in a small village in Scotland in 1836. While taking a morning walk he witnessed a pitiful scene, which was pave way to the foundation for the present postal system. The scene was very interesting a postman handed over a letter to a village girl and asked the payment of postal charges. The girls bluntly refuse the letter and the postal charges, under the excuse she could not afford to pay. Seeing the plight of the girl Rowland paid the charges to the postman and gave the letter to the girl. The girl irritated with Hill’s behavior, opened the letter, showed Hill, and said, see, there was nothing written inside and whatever her fiancé in London wanted, to convey was marked on the letter with codes. We communicate this way. Another version of the story is that, since the girl is poor and she could not pay the postage. However, Hill firmly decided to simplify the system and make the postal service within reach to the common people.


 

Rowland Hill’s Postal Reforms

Rowland Hill prepared a paper called “Postal Reform” its importance and the suitable remedy of reforming postal system’ (The other title of his paper is said to be ‘Post Office, its importance and practicability’).  He stressed the burdensome accounting involved in sending out letters and proposed that the evaluation of postage according to the number of pages and the distance traveled should stop; instead, a flat rate should be fixed irrespective of distance. He felt that it is reasonable to charge extra for over weight letters.  The establishment of uniform tariffs thus eliminated the difficult system of charges and encouraged prepayment that he hoped would become the rule rather than the exception.  He also proposed the adoption of stamped letter sheets and wrappers, which the public could purchase in advance, and dispatches it at any time in post boxes placed at convenient places, even when the post office is closed.

Apart from these reforms, he also pointed out that when these prepaid letter sheets are not available, small adhesive labels can be made available.  He further stated that the difficulty might be prevented by using a bit of paper. It can be covered at back with sticky wash, which the bringer might be the application of a little moisture, attach to the back of the letter so as to avoid the necessity of redirecting (in case of refusal of postage)  this suggestion has given Rowland Hill the credit of being called the “Father of adhesive postal stamp“.

Though there was an intense disagreement, the parliament unwillingly accepted the proposal for a uniform postage system.  It was on January 10th 1840 the Penny Post system come into force.   Prior to that in 1839, the British Treasury decided to carry out a competition for the probable stamps.  There was about 2,600 entries submitted but only forty nine related to adhesive stamps and nineteen to adhesive stamps. Out of that only nineteen were short-listed and finally four prizes of one hundred pounds each were awarded to the entries.  Rowland Hill’s design too was also one among them.

Rowland Hill and his brother Edwin created some sketches of young Queen.  Later in the year 1839 their work was accepted and printed it in March 1840, (Penny Black and Two Penny Blue) by perking, Bacon and Perch on Crown Water Marked Security Paper and  imperf-orated and had to be cut from the sheet by Scissors.  In the following months it production started and were distributed to post offices and was available to the public in May first 1840 thus Rowland Hill become the Hero and Father of adhesive stamp.

Rowland Hill developed a uniform postage system in 1840.  This is how the Postage Stamp was originated and destined to have a great future in the field of communication all over the world.  In the year 1979 the world celebrated his death centenary and many countries issued commemorative stamps in his name.

The United States did not come into picture until 1847.  By that time many countries released their own stamps.  Among them were Brazil, Mauritius and the cantons (states) of Switzerland.  By 1860 almost every country adopted stamps as a method of paying postal charges.

President Roosevelt in connection with this hobby

 

He used to carry his collection of stamps wherever he went and during the world War II time whenever he gets some spare time he involve in checking these stamps and it tremendously reduced his mental tension and maintained a balanced life in those tedious days.

There are a number of stories about the hidden treasures of stamp collection.

“Expect a Miracle” The eminent Indian Philatelist Jal Cooper ones said.  Yes there is always a chance to pick up bargains if you have the necessary knowledge about stamps.  Its really surprising to note that the costliest philatelic cover the Post office Mauritius over which realized US $ 3,00,000/= in 1968 was addressed to the Bombay Auxiliary Bible Society was picked up from Mumbai’s famous Chor Bazar (A market place were goods sold on very lowest price–believed to be a place were stolen articles were transacted) for few rupees.  Due to a minor mistake occurred on the stamps its price value increased tremendously.

More and more people involved in this hobby and non-availability of some rare stamps increased the collectors’ curiosity and that automatically increased the price value.  A One Penny1856 British Guiana stamp sold for $ 935,000 in 1980.  People discovered that the mistakes on the stamps increase the value.  In 1918 United States issued 100 24 cent stamps with airplane mistakenly printed upside down.

Seorang anak muda adalah pemilik pertama dari perangko langka. Dia menemukan stempel ini dari salah satu surat dari orang tua grand. Itu pada tahun 1872 dan dia memutuskan untuk menjual perangko untuk pembelian perangko lebih dari negara lain. Dia mendekati sebuah Filatelis lokal Mr NR Mechinon dan menjualnya dalam pertukaran beberapa prangko harga lebih rendah.

Koleksi perangko langka Catur juara Anatoly Karpov
Salah satu pemain terbesar yang pernah, Karpov memiliki koleksi yang sangat berharga dipimpin oleh prangko Belgia

Anatoly Karpov Yevgenyevich lahir pada 23 Mei 1951 di wilayah Ural dari Uni Soviet. Dia unggul di catur dari usia muda, belajar permainan di empat dan menjadi Guru Calon pada usia 11.

Karpov tidak membiarkan catur mengganggu sekolah, mendapatkan medali emas untuk keunggulan akademik sebelum mempelajari matematika dan ekonomi di universitas. Tapi masa remajanya sebagian besar dihabiskan belajar di sekolah catur Mikhail Botvinnik terkenal itu meskipun penilaian sendiri Juara Dunia Botvinnik bahwa, “Anak itu tidak memiliki petunjuk tentang catur, dan tidak ada masa depan sama sekali baginya dalam profesi ini.”

Menjadi Guru Nasional termuda dalam sejarah Soviet pada 15 tahun 1966 Karpov selesai pertama dalam turnamen internasional pertamanya di Trinec, dan meniti karier peringkat sampai ia dianggap kandidat terbaik untuk mengambil Juara Dunia, Amerika Bobby Fischer.

Fischer, meskipun dianggap salah satu pemain terbesar dalam sejarah, adalah tidak menentu dan tidak percaya, terutama di pertandingan besar melawan pemain Soviet. Dia gagal menyusul perselisihan dengan badan FIDE selama aturan, menyerahkan kemenangan rivalnya itu.

Para Karpov frustrasi memasukkan nomor fenomenal turnamen catur selama dekade berikut untuk legitamise statusnya sebagai Juara dimana ia menjadi kekuatan menakutkan dan selama beberapa waktu memegang rekor kemenangan turnamen paling berturut-turut (sembilan).

Stamp Belgia Termonde 1920 invert
 

Ia dianggap salah satu pemain terbesar sepanjang masa. Memang hanya saingannya oleh statistik banyak adalah pemain dengan siapa ia memiliki panjang ditarik, close-berjuang persaingan untuk Kejuaraan Dunia: Garry Kasparov.

Karpov selalu menjadi kolektor, mencurahkan dedikasi tanpa henti yang sama untuk koleksi karena dia harus catur. Seperti kebanyakan teman-teman sekelasnya dia mengumpulkan pin dan menghasilkan koleksi yang menampilkan sekitar 30.000 olahraga, Olimpiade dan pin catur.

Dia juga mengumpulkan perangko bagaimanapun, dan cap pertama dalam koleksinya adalah cap Uni Soviet merayakan 40 tahun Tentara Merah pada tahun 1958. Tapi itu tidak perangko Soviet yang benar-benar meraih kepentingan Karpov itu.

Sebaliknya perhatian Karpov itu diambil oleh koloni Kerajaan Inggris, dan juga perangko menampilkan hewan yang tidak bisa dilihat di Rusia seperti ular, kanguru atau zebra. Dia telah pergi untuk mengumpulkan catur dan Olimpiade perangko dari Olimpiade moderen di Athena, Yunani (1896).

Karpov juga memiliki berbagai perangko dari Uni Soviet, Perancis, Monako, dan Belanda, tapi seleksi yang paling berharga adalah dari Belgia dan Kongo Belgia, dimana ia memiliki koleksi yang ada terbesar. Perangko awal (sampai sekitar 1869) yang terkenal untuk desain menarik mereka.

Karpv telah dirinya muncul di perangko, seperti yang satu ini dari Guinea
 

 

Salah satu prangko Belgia-nya adalah salah satu dari hanya empat belas contoh Termonde terkenal invert yang menunjukkan salah satu bangunan terbalik. Hal ini diduga bernilai sekitar $ 100.000. Dengan beberapa estimasi koleksi Karpov tentang perangko dan barang lainnya yang bernilai $ 15m. Tapi dia tidak dikumpulkan terutama sebagai investasi.

Karpov telah menghabiskan beberapa tahun 2010 finishing dari sebuah buku yang akan menempatkan semua koleksi dalam konteks sejarahnya. Buku itu tertunda ketika teks asli dicuri, tapi buku ini sekarang substansial telah selesai.

Pada tahun-tahun Karpov telah memiliki beberapa keterlibatan dengan politik termasuk pada satu titik sebagai Presiden Dana Perdamaian Soviet, dan memiliki minat pada hubungan internasional. Karpov telah sering mengatakan ia melihat prangko sebagai alat yang berguna untuk menghubungkan dengan budaya lain, dan rute ke berkomunikasi dengan orang sepanjang dunia.

Sebuah invert kesalahan terjadi ketika bagian dari perangko yang dicetak terbalik.

Mengumpulkan perangko adalah hobi yang populer.

Meskipun perangko biasanya lebih berharga ketika mereka tidak digunakan, tua dan perangko langka yang digunakan masih mempertahankan nilai sebagai akibat dari kelangkaan cap. Kolektor akan tetap membeli stempel digunakan untuk koleksi, jika cap sulit ditemukan. Bahkan perangko umum dan baru dijual ke kolektor setelah digunakan, meskipun mereka tidak menjual dengan harga tinggi seperti perangko langka dan jarang dilakukan.

1
Lepaskan cap dari kertas sehingga tidak rusak. Jika rusak, cap kehilangan nilai. Jika menghapus terlalu sulit, merobek amplop itu sekitar cap meninggalkan banyak ruang sehingga cap tidak rusak. Kemudian memotong kertas ke bawah sampai di dekat tepi cap, tetapi tidak dipotong menjadi cap. Tinggalkan kertas ekstra di sekitar tepi untuk memastikan tidak ada kerusakan. Menjualnya di kertas sehingga kolektor dapat menghapus cap. Perangko Rusak memiliki nilai yang sangat sedikit.

2
Mengatur cap atau stempel. Jika menjual perangko digunakan beberapa, mengatur mereka sehingga perangko sama ditempatkan bersama-sama. Jual perangko individu biasanya kurang berharga daripada menjual prangko bertema sebagai kumpulan kecil. Misalnya, pembeli akan membayar lebih banyak uang untuk satu set enam perangko burung dari tahun yang sama dari mereka akan membayar untuk prangko individu.

3
Lihat perangko di Katalog Prangko Pos Scott. Para Pos Scott Katalog Prangko menunjukkan perangko dari seluruh dunia dan memberikan nilai dasar untuk prangko. Perangko Digunakan biasanya tidak berharga, kecuali mereka sangat jarang, tetapi mengidentifikasi nilai potensi penting untuk proses penjualan. Jika ada perangko langka atau mahal, katalog akan menunjukkan kepada mereka. Hal ini memberikan titik harga yang baik untuk menjual perangko masuk

4
Ambil perangko ke dealer American Society Philatelic. Para dealer yang bergabung dengan Masyarakat Philatelic Amerika sering akan membeli perangko untuk menjualnya kepada kolektor dan bertindak sebagai perantara. Perlu diingat, mereka akan membeli dengan harga lebih rendah dari mereka akan menjual sehingga mereka dapat membuat keuntungan. Jual perangko ke dealer jika harga tampaknya cocok. Jika tidak, ada tempat lain untuk dijual.

5
Tempelkan perangko pada sebuah situs lelang. Salah satu cara terbaik untuk menjual koleksi perangko adalah melalui eBay atau situs lelang dan menjual Web serupa. Kolektor akan menemukan perangko digunakan dan membuat tawaran atau membeli sesuai dengan harga pembelian yang tercantum jika mereka ingin prangko.

6
Cari klub perangko lokal dan mengambil prangko untuk klub. Kolektor berkumpul di klub cap dan mungkin ingin membeli perangko untuk koleksi pribadi mereka. Ini adalah menjual langsung ke kolektor, sehingga keuntungan bisa lebih tinggi dari penjualan melalui dealer. Perlu diketahui beberapa klub cap mungkin menerima sumbangan, seperti klub cap sekolah untuk anak-anak, dan mungkin tidak ingin membeli atau anggota klub cap mungkin tidak ingin perangko jika mereka prangko baru atau perangko umum

Dr Iwan catatan:

Saya sarankan tidak pernah memotong perangko dari depan pos digunakan karena nilai yang lebih tinggi jika stakp masih di sampulnya.

Mengumpulkan perangko, juga dikenal sebagai philatelism, adalah hobi yang memuaskan dan populer. Banyak orang mengumpulkan prangko tidak terlalu berharga, tetapi beberapa prangko langka dan tua dapat bernilai banyak uang. Perangko paling tua yang lebih tinggi dalam nilai ketika bertanda, dan misprints mungkin patut bahkan lebih.

Menganalisis koleksi manapun berkumpul. Periksa tema, seperti negara asal atau tahun biasa. Koleksi lengkap perangko terkait biasanya bernilai lebih dari koleksi atau buku yang berisi perangko cocok atau acak, tidak peduli usia mereka.

2
Pertahankan bahan lain yang mungkin bernilai sebanyak atau lebih dari prangko sendiri. Menurut para ahli di website Domain Stamp, dikirim amplop dapat memiliki perangko langka terpasang. Ketika utuh dan dalam kondisi baik, mereka dapat bernilai lebih dari stempel saja. Literatur filateli tua, seperti pamflet atau buku, juga bisa sangat berharga.

3
Menilai perangko sendiri menggunakan salinan “Katalog Prangko Pos Scott.” Masyarakat Philatelic Amerika merekomendasikan buku ini enam ditetapkan sebagai metode terbaik untuk menilai senilai perangko tanpa bantuan seorang profesional.

4
Bawa koleksi atau prangko tertentu yang menarik bagi dealer cap atau penilai profesional. Peter Aitken menjelaskan pada cap nya mengumpulkan website yang seorang juru taksir dapat memberikan perkiraan yang lebih adil karena mereka tidak tertarik untuk membeli koleksi. Dealer dapat menawarkan jumlah yang segera membeli koleksi, tetapi bisa menjadi sulit untuk mengetahui jika mereka membuat penawaran yang adil.

5
Daftar perangko yang paling berharga, atau seluruh koleksi, untuk dijual di situs lelang cap. Ada juga berbagai majalah jual prangko diterbitkan di seluruh negeri yang akan menerbitkan penawaran Anda dengan biaya kecil. Menghubungi klub cap, terutama untuk prangko khusus, adalah cara lain yang baik untuk menghasilkan penjualan dan bunga.

RARE STAMPS

 

BRITISH GUIANA STAMP

 

MOST PRECIOUS ONE PENNY STAMP

 

British Guiana Stamp the one cent stamp is the world’s costliest stamp of which only one copy is now available.  Its origin is very interesting that an impatient postmaster who could not wait for the new set of stamps to arrive became the unplanned creation of the most costly postal stamp in the world.  Today the same stamp score a price higher than the Kohinoor Diamond.

It all happened in 1856 when the postmaster E D Wright could not wait for the new set of stamps to arrive.  The stamps printed by Britain’s Guiana exhausted the stock of 4 cents stamps and the postmaster could not wait for a longer period and he decided to print the stamp in the country, thus born a stamp with a freak history.

It’s interesting to note that an unexpected error in the printing of this stamp created history.  Instead of printing the denomination as Four cents it printed as One cent.  Most interesting thing is that this mistake went unnoticed for long seventeen years even by the postmaster himself.

A young boy was the first owner of this rare stamp. He found this stamp from one of the letters of his grand parents.  That was in the year 1872 and he decided to sell the stamp for purchasing more stamps from other countries.  He approached a local philatelist Mr. N R Mechinon and sold it in exchange of few lesser priced stamps.

The latest Economic Times reports says that this best-known of all unique stamps, the 1856 “British Guiana 1 cent Magenta,” has been locked away in a vault since 1980 when it was bought for nearly $1 million by John du Pont. The heir to the du Pont chemical fortune.  The report further says he is currently serving a 13- to 30-year sentence for third degree murder case”

 

 


World’s ‘Rarest’ Stamp Sold for a Record Price

 

The Swedish ‘Treskilling Yellow‘ is considered- among the world’s most valuable objects
 pound for pound.

“One of world’s rarest stamps, (The Swedish “Treskilling Yellow“)  is going up for auction this weekend and could fetch a record-breaking price, the head of a Geneva auction house said.

 

The Swedish “Treskilling Yellow” is believed to be the only surviving misprint of an 1855 three shilling stamp that was supposed to be green. It has fabled status among collectors and is considered among the world’s most valuable objects for its size.

This rare stamp was sold to a group of buyers for at least the 2.875 million Swiss francs (then about $2.3 million) price it set a record for in 1996, said auctioneer David Feldman.

This is believed to be the only surviving misprint of an 1855 three shilling stamp that was supposed to be green. It has fabled status among collectors and is considered one of the world’s most valuable objects for its size.

The auction house valued the stamp at euro1.5 million to euro2 million ($1.87 million to $2.5 million) before the sale, but actual sales prices can vary greatly depending on what the buyers feel such unique items are worth.”

Feldman told The Associated Press that Saturday’s auction “happened very quickly because the buyers clearly knew how much they were prepared to pay.” Reports Telegraph

 


2 CENTS HAWAIIAN MISSIONARIES STAMP

 

 

Yet another variety of rare stamps are the “Hawaii Missionaries”.  Hawaii brought out these stamps in 2.5 and 13 cents in the year 1851.  They were printed locally at Honolulu and were very primitive.  Unfortunately after the printing were these stamps were stored got fire and destroyed.  However few stamps had already been sold to the missionaries to post their letters to U S A. Consequently this set of stamps became rare and costly.

In the year 1935 on the occasion of King of England’s Silver Jubilee celebration a special stamp was being prepared.  A sample sheet of the printed stamps were shown to George V , but he could not like the striking blue color and preferred a light blue thus the sheets were not sold to the public, few of which were remained and become rare and costly.


SCINDE DAWK HALF ANNA STAMP THE FIRST INDIAN AND FIRST ASIAN STAMP

 

 

 

On July 1952 under the authority of Sir Bartley Frere the Commissioner of Scind (Province of Scindh—now in Modern West Pakistan) issued the first Indian and the Asian stamp.  It was an imperforated un-gummed laid paper stamp named as Scinde Dawk Half Anna Stamp.

 

Scinde Dawk Half Anna Stamp The First Indian and Asian Stamp

Motivated by the ‘One Penny’ stamp introduced by Rowland Hill in Great Britain Sir Barite Frerre thought of making a single denomination stamp for the circulation in the Scind province.   In consultation with the then postmaster Desrd Kofee prepared a round design with a Motif bearing the bale mark of the East Indian Company V.E. I.C with a circular writing of “SCINDE DISTRICT DAWK” below the writing the denomination ½ (half) Anna was marked. Since it was not authorized by the East India Company the stamps were withdrawn in October 1954.  Today there is only one unused specimen and a few used stamps exist.


QUEEN VICTORIA STAMP

 

 

 

 

QUEEN VICTORIA STAMP WITH INVERTED HEAD

This is the second Indian rarest stamp, a 4 Anna stamp with a faulty printing (the Queen Victoria’s head printed inverted). This was printed on October 1 1854 and only three stamps are remaining in the world and incidentally this is the first bi-colored stamp in the world and become one of the rarest and costly stamps in the world.

 


UNCIRCULATED HALF ANNA STAMP

 

 

 

After the Scinde Dawks there was a general issue of stamps in India.  The Half Anna Stamp with the design of a palm tree and lion was printed in 1853.  This was printed in a limited quantity and never put into sale or for circulation due to shortage of machinery.  This stamp is not known to be possessed by any stamp collector or dealer.


 

BAPU (GANDHI) STAMP

 

 

 

Another rare Indian stamp is the Mahatma Gandhi or Bapu series of Rs.10.00 Service Postage Stamp.  This was specially printed of the use of the late Governor General Shri Rajagopalachari.   Only hundred stamps were issued and today only a few specimens are available.

 

 

 

 


 

FIRST AIR POST

 

 

India also has the rare distinction of being the first country in the world to carry an official Air post. It was on February 1911 from Allahabad to Naomi flight by the French Pilot Monsieur “H. Piquet”. About 65,000 letters and post cards were flown from Allahabad to Naini.

It is not only just the stamp that is important even a cancellation on an ordinary stamp can often increase its value ‘hundreds’ if not thousands of times.

The postal marking found in Indian mail is the Bishop Mark of 1775 and is considered as one of the outstanding rarities of India.  The costliest item in the world relation of its weights is a stamp—classic stamps are partially a “Gold Standard” they not only retain their value but if required judiciously  appreciate quite considerably in value.  Stamps are proved safe investment, easily transportable and a hedge against inflation.  Like any other area here also a specialist in stamp collecting with knowledge through vast reading and research can make considerable amount of money on stamps.  The amount spent on stamps is worth better than throwing it away on some of our so-called amusements and gambling.

 

Stamp collection is also the World’s biggest collecting hobby and on such is one of the safest fields of investments in the collecting world; more than a million people dabble in stamps in England.  In India, also it has become a very popular hobby in recent years due to the holding of regional and national exhibitions and the prestige brought to the country by the performances of Indian philatelists at International Exhibitions.

Some may say that the prospect of this hobby is very bleak since the popularity of internet and other forms of electronic communications are in its full usage.  But this argument is not true that the usage of stamps on mail is still prevalent that there are a variety of stamps released quite often and its flow is increasing every year.  Now there a number of philatelists’ organizations which provides different services to stamp collectors around the world?  Philatelists can display their products for sale, and purchase variety of stamps and other related materials through web portals.  http://stampListing.com is one such philately web portal. Through their pages one can buy  the philately materials and can sell and display their stamps and philately related materials.  They provide other facilities like contact with other philatelists and philately clubs, stamp trade/stamp exchange etc.

http://Stamps2Go.com

 is yet another website were a philatelist can sell and buy stamps and other related material.  One can join here by registering with their ids. and can even exchange stamps.  Recently they launched an ad campaign on the facebook and other sites. Stamp collectors can become a fan in their fb pages and can have good interaction on these lines. Read more at their sites.

No doubt, with such latest facilities available now philately has a bright future. PV

Useful Computer Software For Stamp Collections

As we are living in the 21st Century and most people also have a computer, why not using some specialized software for stamp collections, here are some good software propositions:

 


World Federation Of Stamp Collection Members

 

F.I.P. Today and Tomorrow…

The “Fédération Internationale de Philatélie” (F.I.P.) has looked after stamp collectors and philatelists since 1926 – growing from a society of a handful European Philatelic Federations to a Federation with a network throughout the world with:

  • 87 Regular Members (National Philatelic Federations)
  • 3 Associated Members (Continental Federations)
  • Promotional Members (a new type of Membership for Postal Administrations)

[GM]: BTW: did you know that one president from it was from Luxembourg (sorry it is my country [ ]) His name is  Jos WOLFF, RDP, honorary president now (2010)…

 

 


Philately  Now  is Stamp of Class and Money

A recent report in the Times of India says: “Philately is stamp of class and money.  its an investment that survived the recession in 2008, and actually zoomed 39% that year, when all asset classes global stock markets, US property rates and even gold fell.

Considered to be “under-valued but a highly stable asset class, investing in rare stamps is catching the fancy of Asians, particularly Indian Asians, investment portfolio managers feel that with India’s growth story and robust asset classes, investing in rare stamps will be next big asset class for the well-healed.

The list of stamp buffs who hold “valuable collections, include Queen Elizabeth of England, French President Sarkozy, Russian tennis player Sharpova and billionaire fund manager  Bill Gross, who runs the world’s biggest bond fund at Pacific Investment Management Co.  Over the years, it is expected to move on from just being under the realm of royal dynasties to high net worth individuals.

The rare stamp collections of Chess champion Anatoly Karpov

One of the greatest players ever, Karpov owns a hugely valuable collection led by Belgian stamps

Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov was born on May 23, 1951 in the Urals region of the Soviet Union. He excelled at chess from a young age, learning the game at four and becoming a Candidate Master by age 11.

Karpov didn’t let chess interfere with school, earning a gold medal for academic excellence before studying maths and economics at university. But his teenage years were mostly spent studying at Mikhail Botvinnik’s famous chess school despite World Champion Botvinnik’s own assessment that, “The boy does not have a clue about chess, and there’s no future at all for him in this profession.”

Becoming the youngest Soviet National Master in history at 15 in 1966 Karpov finished first in his first international tournament in Třinec, and worked his way up the rankings until he was considered the best candidate to take on the World Champion, American Bobby Fischer.

Fischer, though considered one of the greatest players in history, was erratic and distrustful, especially in major matches against Soviet players. He defaulted following a dispute with governing body FIDE over the rules, handing his rival the victory.

The frustrated Karpov entered a phenomenal number of chess tournaments over the following decade in order to legitamise his status as Champion where he was a daunting force and for some time held the record for most consecutive tournament victories (nine).


Stamp Belgium Termonde 1920 invert

He is considered one of the greatest players of all time. Indeed his only rival by many statistics is the player with whom he had a long-drawn, close-fought rivalry for the World Championship: Garry Kasparov.

Karpov has always been an avid collector, devoting the same relentless dedication to collectibles as he has to his chess. Like most of his classmates he collected pins and generated a collection featuring about 30,000 sport, Olympic and chess pins.

He also collects stamps however, and the first stamp in his collection was the USSR stamp celebrating 40 years of the Red Army in 1958. But it wasn’t Soviet stamps which really grabbed Karpov’s interest.

Instead Karpov’s attention was drawn by colonies of the British Empire, and also stamps showing animals which could not be seen in Russia such as snakes, kangaroos or zebras. He has gone on to collect chess and Olympic Games stamps from the first modern Olympic Games in Athens, Greece (1896).

Karpov also has a range of stamps from the USSR, France, Monaco, and the Netherlands, but his most valuable selection is from Belgium and the Belgian Congo, of which he has the largest existing collection. The earliest stamps (until around 1869) are notable for their attractive designs.


Karpv has himself appeared on stamps, such as this one from Guinea

 

One of his Belgian stamps is one of just fourteen examples of the famous Termonde invert which shows one of the buildings upside down. It is thought to be worth around $100,000. By some estimations Karpov’s collections of stamps and other items are worth $15m. But he has not collected primarily as an investment.

Karpov has spent some of 2010 finishing off a book which will place all the collectibles in their historical context. The book was delayed when the original text was stolen, but the book is now substantially complete.

In his later years Karpov has had some involvement with politics including at one point being the President of the Soviet Peace Fund, and has an interest in international relations. Karpov has often said he sees stamps as a useful tool for connecting with other cultures, and a route into communicating with people all round the world.

 

 

Valuable american stamp was sold on Ebay for US $3,201.00. Its a United States 1c Pan American Invert #294a (Scott).

An invert error occurs when part of a postage stamp is printed upside-down. Inverts are perhaps the most spectacular of a postage stamp errors, not only because of the striking visual appearance, but because they are almost always quite rare, and highly valued by stamp collectors.
Invert errors, or “inverts” for short, most commonly arise when producing multi-colored stamps via multiple passes through the printing press. It is all too easy for a printing plant worker to insert a half-finished sheet the wrong way around, resulting in the inverts. Such an error being so obvious, nearly all misprinted sheets are caught and destroyed before they leave the plant, and still more are caught during distribution or at the post office before being sold.

Collecting rare stamps is one of the wisest investments that you can make, and is also a popular and interesting hobby. Learning to select rare stamps can help increase the value of your stamp collection.

 

Instructions

1.   Understand Types of Rare Stamps

  • 1

Understand that the rareness of a stamp is directly related to its market value. According to the American Philatelic Foundation, a stamp is considered rare only if its value is over $5,000.

  • 2

Know that there are several different types of rare stamps sought by collectors. These include stamps of limited quantity, errors, stamps with special cancellations, first-issued stamps of a country and antique stamps of all kinds. Types of errors include inverted designs, color errors and printing errors.

  • 3

Use a stamp catalog to find and identify rare and valuable stamps that you may want to acquire for your collection.

2.   Select a Reputable Stamp Dealer

  • 1

Choose a stamp dealer with whom to do business based on his reputation and associations to which he belongs. The American Philatelic Society and American Stamp Dealers Association are two groups that hold their members to a strong code of ethics in their business dealings. With these dealers, you are generally assured authenticity. Other countries also have similar professional associations for stamp dealers.

  • 2

Find out some important information about the stamp dealer or seller at auction before you buy a stamp, particularly your rights to have the stamp appraised and returned if it is found to differ in any way from how it was advertised by the seller.

3.   Get Stamps Expertised

  • 1

Take the rare stamps that you have a acquired from a reputable dealer to be expertised. An expertiser will appraise your stamps for authenticity, grade and value, and can also help you categorize them as well. Upon completion of the expertising process, you will receive a certificate of authenticity for each stamp.

  • 2

Select an expertiser based on years of experience and reputation within the philatelic community. Keep in mind that expertisers charge a fee that is generally based on a percentage of the stamp’s catalog value.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be extremely cautious of forgeries and fakes. Rare stamps are the type most often counterfeited because often they carry a high v

Stamp collectors buy unused and used stamps.

Flag this photo

Stamp collecting is a popular hobby.

Though stamps are usually more valuable when they are not used, old and rare stamps that are used still retain value as a result of the rarity of the stamp. Collectors will still buy a used stamp for a collection, if the stamp is hard to find. Even common and new stamps are sold to collectors after being used, though they do not sell for high prices like rare and uncommon stamps do.

 

Instructions

Things You’ll Need

  • Scissors
  • Scott Postage Stamp Catalog

Suggest Edits

  1. 1.    
  • 1

Remove the stamp from the paper so that it is not damaged. If damaged, the stamp loses value. If removing is too difficult, tear the envelope around the stamp leaving plenty of room so that the stamp is undamaged. Then cut the paper down until it is near the edge of the stamp, but does not cut into the stamp. Leave a little extra paper around the edges to ensure there is no damage. Sell it on the paper so that the collector can remove the stamp. Damaged stamps have very little value.

  • 2

Organize the stamp or stamps. If selling several used stamps, organize them so that similar stamps are placed together. Selling individual stamps is usually less valuable than selling themed stamps as a small collection. For example, a buyer would pay more money for a set of six bird stamps from the same year than they would pay for the individual stamps.

  • 3

Look the stamps up in the Scott Postage Stamp Catalog. The Scott Postage Stamp Catalog shows stamps from around the world and gives a basic value for stamps. Used stamps are usually not valuable, unless they are very rare, but identifying the potential value is important to the selling process. If there are rare or expensive stamps, the catalog will show them. This gives a good price point to sell the stamps in.

  • 4

Take the stamps to an American Philatelic Society dealer. The dealers that have joined the American Philatelic Society will often buy stamps to sell them to collectors and act as a middleman. Keep in mind, they will buy at a lower price than they will sell so that they can make a profit. Sell the stamps to the dealer if the price seems appropriate. If not, there are other places to sell.

  • 5

Post the stamps on an auction site. One of the best ways to sell a stamp collection is through eBay or a similar auctioning and selling Web site. Collectors will find the used stamps and make a bid or purchase according to the purchase price listed if they want the stamps.

  • 6

Locate a local stamp club and take the stamps to the club. Collectors gather at a stamp club and might want to buy the stamps for their personal collections. This is a direct sell to a collector, so the profits might be higher than selling through a dealer. Keep in mind some stamp clubs might accept donations, such as a school’s stamp club for children, and might not wish to buy or the members of the stamp club might not want the stamps if they are newer stamps or common stamps

Dr Iwan note:

I suggest never cutting the stamps from postal used cover because the value more high if the stakp still on the cover.

Old postage stamps can be worthless, or worth a small fortune, depending on rarity and condition.

Flag this photo

Collecting postage stamps, also known as philatelism, is a satisfying and popular hobby. Many stamps people collect are not particularly valuable, but some rare and old postage stamps can be worth a lot of money. Most old stamps are higher in value when unmarked, and misprints may be worth even more. If you’ve inherited or purchased a stamp collection, selling some or all of the most collectible specimens may be a good idea.

 

Instructions

  1. 1.    
  • 1

Analyze any gathered collections. Check for themes, such as country of origin or common year. Complete collections of related stamps are usually worth more than collections or books containing mismatched or random stamps, no matter their age.

  • 2

Preserve other materials that may be worth as much or more than the stamps themselves. According to the experts at the Stamp Domain website, sent envelopes can have rare stamps attached. When intact and in good condition, they can be worth more than the stamp alone. Aged philatelic literature, such as pamphlets or books, can also be very valuable.

  • 3

Appraise the stamps yourself using a copy of the “Scott Postage Stamp Catalog.” The American Philatelic Society recommends this six-volume set as the best method for appraising the worth of postage stamps without the help of a professional.

  • 4

Bring the collection or particularly interesting postage stamps to a stamp dealer or professional appraiser. Peter Aitken explains on his stamp collecting website that an appraiser may give you a more fair estimate because they are not interested in purchasing the collection. A dealer may offer you an amount immediately to purchase the collection, but it can be hard to know if they are making a fair offer.

  • 5

List the most valuable stamps, or the whole collection, for sale on a stamp auction website. There are also a wide variety of stamp selling periodicals published around the country which will publish your offers for a small fee. Contacting a stamp club, especially for specialty stamps, is another good way to generate sales and interest.

Tips & Warnings

  • Randomly gathered, damaged, and recently issued stamps are rarely worth a high price. Look for organized, themed collections or stamped and used envelopes.

Determine the Value of Old Stamps

Flag this photo

Like many scraps of paper, postage stamps reveal a history of progress. Alexander M. Greig issued the first private postage stamps in 1842 in New York. The Post Office Department issued the first U.S. postage stamp in 1847. This was 10 years after Sir Rowland Hill proposed adhesive stamps or preprinted envelopes in Great Britain. Stamp value is based on condition, scarcity, denomination and subject matter.

Instructions

  1. 1.    
  • 1

Check for damage such as wear and tear or adhesive residue. Stamps are rated “superb,” “fine” and “good.” A used stamp must have light canceling, perfect centering and otherwise look undamaged to be superb.

  • 2

Identify the stamps through the Scott catalog, which is the standard identification guide for postage stamps worldwide. Stamps are often referred to by its Scott number.

  • 3

Compare the face value and the catalog value of the stamp. Use the higher of the two to establish the value.

  • 4

Watch for errors in postage stamps as these are worth a premium. Starting in 1975, the U.S. Postal Service issued Christmas stamps without a face value, but these are not errors. They were sold for 10 cents that year. Nondenominated stamps issued since have letters “A” through “H.”

  • 5

Find and value commemorative stamps. These often have value greater than the face. For example, the American Music series commemorative stamps from 1994 were issued at 29 cents and are valued at $1.60 each in unused condition in 2010.

Tips & Warnings

  • Most dealers and shops willing to buy stamps will only offer about 50 percent of calculated value.
  • You may need a specialized guide if you collect varieties other than postage stamps, like revenue stamps, cigarette stamps or labels and seals.

Handle postage stamps carefully.

Flag this photo

Postage stamps are the essential component for ensuring a letter is delivered from one location to another. As early as 1837, postage stamps were included on letters and other mailed objects. Postage stamp costs increased as time went on, and today — with the invention of the Internet and electronic mail — postage stamps are fast becoming a thing of the past. Viewing old postage stamps and determining their value is a straightforward process that can bring any individual a bounty of financial rewards — depending upon the stamps they possess.

Pinch the corner of the stamp with a polished pair of stamp tongs. Hold a magnifying glass over the stamp to observe its nuances. Lift the stamp with the tongs and slide it carefully into the plastic sheet encased in a binder. Handle all old postage stamps similarly to prevent soiling or damage.

  • 2

Visit websites like Stampcatalogue.org to browse old postage stamps and their value. Pull the cursor to the right side of the home page to the “Browse U.S. Stamps by Year” menu. Click on the year in which your stamp was issued.

Scroll through the various collection of stamps. Identify the original cost and value of the stamp and compare it to its current value as determined by each listing. Look through your own collection to find stamps identical to those included on the website

Outdated stamps can be defined as postage stamps that are no longer being printed by the United States Postal Service. Some outdated stamps, especially if they are very old, or are rare, are valuable. They should be not be used as ordinary postage on a letter or package. Otherwise, outdated stamps can always be used. They still have their value. The biggest problem is, not all stamps have the postage value printed on them. You may have some outdated stamps you want to use, but you don’t know how much postage you have. There’s an easy way to find out.

Instructions

  1. 1.    
  • 1

Gather together any outdated postage stamps you have on hand. The stamps must be uncancelled and unused.

  • 2

Take them to a local branch of the U.S. Postal Service. The clerk has a stamp chart. She can compare the outdated stamps to the pictures on the chart and determine their postage values.

  • 3

Turn in the stamps to the post office. A clerk will give you current stamps in return. You’ll get the same value. For example, if your outdated stamps add up to $3.75, the post office will give you the same amount in newer stamps.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can use outdated stamps to send letters and packages. However, they might get held up in the postal system while their postage value is determined

Most postage stamps have a value on their face.

Flag this photo

The business of postage stamps and creation of new and varied stamps started simply but has become complex over the 150-plus years of operation. In recent years, some postage stamps and preposted postcards have not shown a value on the stamp. You can determine the postage value and use unused postage stamps, regardless of their age.

 

 

 

Instructions

  1. 1.    
  • 1

Refer to the Domestic Mail Manual provided by the U.S. Postal Service. The Quick Service Guide 604a shows pictures of nondenominated postage (see Resources).

  • 2

Review the stamps that have no denomination shown. In 1978, the Postal Service started the ABC series. The A stamp was the eagle on an envelope with a 15-cent value. The B stamp was issued in 1981 with the same appearance as the A stamp, but with the letter B and a value of 18 cents. The B postcard issued at the same time did not have an initial but was otherwise the same eagle stamp, with a denomination of 12 cents. The C stamped envelope issue arrived in 1981, carried the same eagle in flight and a 20-cent value. The last time the eagle appeared on this postage was for the D stamp, issued in 1985 on an envelope at 22 cents. The earth stamp was E, issued in 1988 for 25 cents. F had two designs–a tulip and a flag–both issued in 1991 at 29 cents, and to accompany the F was a “makeup stamp” for 4 cents.

G carried the American flag design, and had three formats. There was a 20-cent postcard price, a 25-cent presorted first-class price and a 32-cent for U.S. addresses only. The G makeup stamp has a dove and is valued at 3 cents. Uncle Sam’s hat is on the H stamp issued in 1998 for 33 cents. There was also an H makeup stamp of 1 cent, with a rooster weather vane.

  • 3

Look for semi-postal stamps. The best-known stamp in the semi-postal series is the breast cancer stamp, “Fund the Fight, Find the Cure,” issued in 1998 at 40 cents, with 32 cents for postage and eight cents for the breast-cancer cause. In 2002, the Postal Service issued “Heroes of 2001″ with a postage value of 37 cents and a purchase price of 45 cents. “Stop Family Violence” had a stamp value of 37 cents and a price of 45 cents. These stamps help fund the cause on the stamp. The breast cancer stamp is available at 55 cents in 2010, with 44 cents in postage value.

  • 4

Find forever stamps with the Liberty Bell. Purchase these postage stamps at one value, and use them as first-class postage on a 1-oz. letter at any time. They do not require a “makeup stamp” or extra cost. These stamps first issued in 2007 continue to be available at the current first-class postage rate.

  • 5

Locate other Postal Service stamps with no denomination marked on the face. There are others shown on the Quick Service Guide that are no longer available at the post office, but are usable if you have some. These include some Christmas issues, the antique toys in four versions issued in 2002 at 37 cents and a 41-cent American flag issued in 2007

Make your clear polymer stamps more versatile and less bulky than rubber stamps.

Clear stamps are gaining popularity among the stamping industry. Unmounted stamps are cheaper for you to buy and ship. Clear stamps must be mounted before they can be used, however. Mounting clear polymer stamps is not a difficult process. Once the stamps are mounted they can be used just like rubber stamps. Clear stamps can be removed from the mount for storage, and the mount can be used with several different stamps.

How many times have you used an unmounted stamp only to misplace it due to its small size? While traditional wood-mounted rubber stamps are large and bulky, unmounted stamps (rubber or photopolymer stamps that do not require a wooden handle but rather use a clear acrylic block for positioning) are slim and lightweight. By storing unmounted stamps in transparent compact disc jewel cases and labeling each one you will use very little space and be able to quickly find even the smallest stamp in your collection.

Rare Stamps Up For Auction For Charity

---


PIMCO Founder Bill Gross or as I call him,
the philanthropic philatelist, is at it again selling off more rare and valuable postage stamps for good causes. The latest auction being held by Spink Shreves Galleries of New York City and Dallas features stamps from France, Germany and China. The auction on May 19 in New York City is conservatively estimated to bring $1 million or more. All proceeds from the sale will be donated by Gross and his wife, Sue, to the Emergency Relief Fund of the nonprofit organization, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The historic stamps, including some dating back to the earliest days of French postal history, will be displayed in London, England and New York prior to the sale.

The stamp above overprinted “CHINA” and postmarked in Shanghai is a rare three Pfennig denomination stamp from 1898 was used for German offices in China. It has a catalog value today of $23,000.


“Through their generosity, Bill and Sue Gross already have donated over the past three years a combined total of over $15.5 million to charities and non-profit organizations from five previous auctions of stamps from his collection. The May 19th auction will offer some of the most famous and valuable French and French colonial stamps and covers (stamped envelopes), special stamps issued for German overseas offices and colonies, early 20th century stamps from China as well as rare stamps of Italy, Spain and Turkey,” said Charles Shreve, president of Spink Shreves.

“The auction includes France’s rarest stamp, an exceptional mint condition, vermilion-colored one Franc denomination from 1849, the first year France issued postage stamps. It’s a world famous, classic rarity and is expected to sell for $75,000 or more.”

A pair of 1849 French one Franc carmine-colored stamps with one of them printed upside down has a pre-sale estimate of $125,000. “The ‘tệte-bệche’ (face-to-face) pair is one of the greatest of all French philatelic rarities. Only four such pairs are known in mint condition,” explained Shreve. The pair of postage stamps, shown above, are expected to sell for $125,000.

Other highlights include dozens of rare 19th and early 20th century Reichspost (German Postal Service) stamps used for mailings from German government offices in China and other countries, each with a bold counter-mark indicating the name of the specific country where the office was located.

The stamps will be displayed at the London 2010 International Stamp Exhibition, May 8 – 15, and at the New York City offices of Spink Shreves Galleries, May 17 and 18.

 

 

 

 

 

Two-day Sale at Philip Weiss Auctions Realizes a Record $5.2 Million As Rare Stamps, Peanuts Comic Strips and More Bring Dizzying Prices

 

The top lot was an exceptionally rare vertical coil pair of 1908 2-cent stamps that brought $644,100

(Oceanside, N.Y.) – Rare stamps, original “Peanuts” comic strips, rare books, autographs and more combined for a dizzying $5.2 million gross at a two-day sale held May 17-18 by Philip Weiss Auctions. It was a record take for the firm. “Not long ago, $5 million would have represented an entire year for us,” said Philip Weiss, “and we did that in a single weekend. I’m tired, but it’s a good tired.”

 

 

The key to the weekend’s success was Part 2 of The Newport Stamp Collection, which featured some of the most rare and coveted philatelic U.S. examples in existence. Five stamps alone accounted for nearly $2.3 million The Chesapeake Collection (so-named because it was compiled in that region of the country, in Maryland) brought $425,000. One of the 50+ albums alone made $53,675.

Part 1 of The Newport Collection made headlines when, on February 9, an unused 1869 24-cent inverted stamp, #120, one of only four known, soared to $1.271 million. It was a new record for a U.S. invert and the highest price ever paid for a single U.S. stamp. Part 2 did not record any million-dollar stamps, but many strong sellers did cross the block. Part 3 will be held sometime in September.

In all, about 1,000 lots were offered at the weekend event, held in Philip Weiss Auctions’ spacious showroom in Oceanside. Around 150 people attended the auction over the course of the two days, plus there were strong online bidding components (through LiveAuctioneers.com and the Stamp Auction Network). The 1,500 combined registered phone and absentee bidders made about 3,000 bids.

Following are highlights from the sale. All prices quoted include a 13% buyer’s premium.

The top lot of the sale was a 1908 2-cent vertical coil pair, with original gum (Scott Catalog #321). Valued by Scott at $375,000, the stamps – the rarest coil in U.S. philately, with only four pairs known – sold for an astounding $644,100. The stamps, depicting George Washington, had been graded Extremely Fine. A small crease didn’t deter bidders, who were impressed by the exceptional centering.

 

The second top lot was another coil pair – two 4-cent stamps from 1908 depicting U. S. Grant (Scott Catalog #314A) – that changed hands for $497,200. The horizontal pair, with original gum, had been graded Extremely Fine and was one of only six unused pairs known. And of those, this is the finest centered pair. The last time a pair hit the auction block was 1975 (hammer price: $30,000).

Two lots realized identical prices of $440,700. One was an 1875 Continental special printing of a 5-cent stamp featuring an image of President Zachary Taylor (Scott Catalog #181).

 

The stamp, graded Extremely Fine, is one of only nine 5-cent Continental special printings in existence (a tenth is in The Miller Collection). This example was perfectly centered, top to bottom and side to side.

The other was a 5-cent American special printing of an 1880 stamp, also depicting Zachary Taylor.The stamp (Scott Catalog #204) was graded Extremely Fine and had been printed on soft, porous paper, adding to its desirability. It is either the finest or the second-finest centered example of the 18 that are recorded. Only a tiny margin nick prevented it from commanding an even higher price.

The Chesapeake Collection comprised more than 50 super U.S. albums, loaded with foreign mint sets, singles and other premium material. Additional stamp, coin and paper money lots crossed the block – all on May 17 – in addition to The Newport and Chesapeake Collections. Part 3 of The Newport Collection, in September, will feature more ultra-rare U.S. stamps. Philatelists take note.

The May 18 session was more eclectic, with many fresh-to-the-market offerings in a broad range of categories. As in many Philip Weiss sales, this one included more than one original “Peanuts” comic strip by Charles Schulz. A Sunday page, dated 6-3-62 and featuring a classic kite flying scene, sailed to $79,100; and a daily strip, dated 1-11-64 and showing Snoopy in the doghouse, hit $36,160.

An early Kentucky long rifle, made and signed by S. Miller in the early 19th century, hit the mark at $8,756.50. The all original rifle, exhibiting just a little edge wear, was about 57 inches in overall length. Also, a large edition copy of “Big Game Hunting” by Theodore Roosevelt (Putnam, 1899), signed by the former president and #457 of just 1,000 copies printed, changed hands for $5,650.

An original Disney production cel from the classic 1930s film “Fantasia” achieved $5,085. The cel, featuring an image of the Pegasus family, measured about 13 inches x 9 inches (framed, 24 inches x 19 inches), with a certificate of authenticity attached to the back. Also, a signed studio photo of Humphrey Bogart, black and white and taken by photographer Henry Waxman, gaveled for $2,835.

Philip Weiss Auctions’ next big sale will be a three-day event scheduled for the weekend of June 20-22. The Friday evening session (June 20, beginning at 6 p.m.) will feature about 300 lots of high-end art; pottery; porcelain; silver; and more. Already consigned are original works by Emilio Grau Sala; Eduardo Cortes; and Caroline Bell; plus an important Spanish painted panel from the 16th century.

The Saturday session (June 21, starting at 10 a.m.) will include 700-900 lots of mostly vintage trains; toys; and toy soldiers. Highlights will include Part 3 of The Steve Rathkopf Collection, comprising 1940s-’60s TV and comic character material; 200 pieces of mint-in-box or on-card Corgi, Matchbox, Hot Wheels, Solido, Schuco and Johnny Lightning cars; and outstanding sets and box lots.

On Sunday (June 22, beginning at 10 a.m.), 700+ lots will be sold, starting with the Ken Schultz Collection of ocean liner and World’s Fair memorabilia; then Part 2 of a vintage collection of porcelain and metal litho advertising signs; thousands of sports autographs, to be sold in group lots; more original “Peanuts” comic strips; Golden Age comic books; and historical Long Island material.

Looking a little further into the year, Philip Weiss Auctions also has sales planned for September and October (times and dates to be announced). The September auction will feature a military collection that, according to Mr. Weiss, “must be seen to be believed.” Also on tap for autumn is a pair of fantastic aviation collections.

As director of American Philatelic Foundation I have over a forty-five year period helped serious collectors form very valuable collections for pleasure and investment.

As an example I am currently working on obtaining one of the Worlds rarest stamps Mauritius Islands first stamp on full cover printed in 1847 and currently worth $3,000,000.00 In my opinion the buyer of this fabulous treasure might double his investment in as little as five years!

First stamp in Asia – The Scinde Dawk

 

India is the first country to issue the first stamp in Asia .

 

These stamps are popularly known as the Scinde Dawks .

 

It was July 1, 1852 when Mr. Bertle Frere , the commissioner of Sind ( now in Pakistan ) introduced paper stamps which were limited to Sind district only for circulation . The central design of the stamp was the East India Company’s wide arrow and the stamps were embossed in different colours . The value of the stamp was 1/2 anna and the words ‘Scind District Dawk’ were printed on it in a circle . Vermillion stamps were issued first but they had a very short life because they were embossed on very fragile paper . White stamps were issued later on but embossing on white paper could not be seen clearly . So stamps were finally issued in blue colour on white paper . These stamps are famous among stamp collectors as Scinde Dawks were not only first in India but also in Asia . Scind Dawks were withdran by Sind Posts Department on September 30, 1854 because regular stamps of India were issued on October 1, 1854 . Scind Dawk is one of the rarest stamps of the world . India issued on October 19, 1977 a 100 paise stamp on the occassion of Asiana -77 depicting this famous Scind Dawk stamp .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOST FAMOUS STAMP OF THE WORLD ( One cent British Guiana)

 

In the nineteenth century, the stamps of British Guiana were printed by a British printer, Waterlow & Sons. In early 1856, the stock of stamps was sold out before the fresh shipment from England arrived. The postmaster of British Guiana E.T.E. Dalton, needed stamps in a hurry so he asked the firm of Joseph Baum and William Dallas, publishers of the Official Gazette in Georgetown, to print an emergency issue. Dalton printed one-cent and four-cent stamps; the one-cent stamps were for newspapers and the four-cent stamps were for letters. On these stamps were printed the existing designs “the name British Guiana, the seal of the colon” a ship, and the Latin motto of the colony, “Damus Petimus que Vicissim”, (translated as “We give and we seek in return”). Usually, stamps of different values of the same design were printed in different colours, but the printing firm did both values in black ink on coloured or “magenta” paper. Since the quality was very poor the postmaster, to prevent forgery, asked the post office workers to initial each stamp before selling it. Thus, as a security measure each stamp was initialed by a post office employee. (Known initials are “E.T.E.D.” for Dalton, “E.D.W” for Wight, “W.H.L.” for Lortimer and “C.A.W.”for Watson).

 

In 1873, Vernon Vaughan, a 12-year-old Scottish schoolboy collector living in Georgetown, discovered the octagon-shaped one-cent “Black on Magenta”, postmarked April 4, 1856, among some family papers. It was in poor condition, ink-smudged and slightly damaged and bore the initials “E.D.W”. He soaked out the stamp and kept it in his album with his other stamps.

Shortly thereafter, Vaughn decided to sell it in order to purchase foreign stamps. He sold it to N. R. McKinnon, a local collector, for six shillings, which at that time was less than one US dollar.

 Five years later,

McKinnon sold his entire collection to his friend Wylie Hill who lived in Glasgow, Scotland. Some time later, a London stamp dealer, Edward Pemberton, studied the collection and identified the one-cent Black on Magenta as a rare stamp.

 Hill later sold it to Thomas Ridpath, a dealer in Liverpool, England, for 120 British pounds.

 In the early 1900s

this dealer then sold it to the Frenchman Count Philip La Renotiere Von Ferrari, the most well-known stamp collector at that period, for 150 pounds.

After Ferrari’s death in 1917,

his collection was auctioned in Paris between 1921 and 1925. In one of these auctions, the stamp was purchased in 1922 by millionaire Arthur Hind of Utica, New York, for 7,343 British pounds.

Around that time,

 rumours circulated that because Hind was obsessed with the stamp, he had bought a second one-cent Black on Magenta and destroyed it so that his remaining one- cent Black on Magenta would remain as the only one in the world.

Arthur Hind died in 1933

 and left his stamp-collection as a part of his estate. His widow, however, claimed that the one-cent British Guiana stamp had been given to her by her husband.

The court upheld her claim and in 1940

 the stamp was sold to Frederick Small, an Australian living in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, for a price ranging between US$40,000 to US$75,000.

 In an auction held by Robert Siegel Galleries in 1970,

 the stamp was sold for $240,000 to Irwin Weinberg and a group of investors from Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. The one-cent Black on Magenta remained in their collection for ten years when John E. du Pont of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, bought it at an auction for $935,000.

 

 

The story of ‘POST OFFICE’ Mauritius Stamp

The ‘Post Office’ Mauritius stamps are the rarest stamps of the world .These were the first to be issued by British Colony of Mauritius. It was the year 1847 when lady Gomm, wife of the Governer of Mauritius planned to hold a fancy dress ball on 30th september 1847 to mark the Island Government Fifth Anniversary .She wanted to use the first postage stamps of Maritius on her letters of invitation. The time was very short , so it was decided to have the first postage stamp printed locally . There was a man named J.Barnard in Mauritius who knew how to engrave design on plates . Lady Gomm asked him to engrave the design for the stamps and print 500 stamps of 1d and 2d value each. The design selected had Queen Victoria Head in the centre , the inscription Postage at the top and value at the bottom, Maurutius on the right and Post paid on the left . He completed the design and printed the stamp but made mistake of engraving Post office instead of Post Paid . The story behind the engraving of post office on stamp is that the J.Barnard lost the paper on which the words to be inscribed were written by the Post Master and he could not remember what was to be engraved on the left hand side , so he decided to go to Post Master and ask him the actual words to be engraved on stamps . As he reached the Post Office he noticed that Post Office was written on the building . Soon he convinced himself that these were the words which were written on the paper he lost . He rushed back and engraved the word Post Office on the design . This mistake was not detected for about seventeen years . In 1864 Madam Borchard wife of bordeaux merchant found 12 pieces of these rareties among her husband letters. Only 27 of the stamp pairs, are known to exist in the world. These are the rarest philatelic items.

Philatelic rarities from around the world are on offer, including one from Count Ferrary’s collection

What do a headless kangaroo, an item from a schoolgirl’s scrapbook, and an envelope printed by the postmaster of a tiny town in Canada have in common?

 

They are all among the top lots in the upcoming Autumn auction series held by David Feldman SA of Geneva, Switzerland on November 17-20.

Several thousand lots, including over 1000 collections, large lots and estates, are accompanied to the auction block by specialised catalogues.

These are full of pieces from Switzerland (featuring numerous choice Cantonals as well as 20th century rarities), France and Colonies (with superb Ceres issues including numerous mint 1849 One Franc stamps with tete-beche pair and varieties of shades including the “vervelle”) plus a catalogue of Great Britain & Colonies rich in Penny Blacks by plate and position.

The All World catalogue is made up mostly of collections offered by country or region plus single items from several countries, both European and Overseas.

A catalogue of Olympics and Tennis Memorabilia provides ample opportunity for lovers of medals, posters, art and similar collectables to add to their philatelic holdings.

Finally, the auctions include a special offer of “Rarities of the World” which includes important specialised collections offered intact as well as choice classics throughout.

 

 

The headless kangaroo? Discovered over 60 years ago, certified genuine by the Royal and by use of Raman micrography, it is the only example of this dramatic printing variety ever found.

Stanley Gibbons are proud to announce their recent acquisition of the mythological 1904 6d Pale Dull Purple (I.R. Official) which is on display on their stand (Number 79) at the London 2010 International Stamp Exhibition at the Business Design Centre, London until Saturday 15th May.

 

Issued on 14 May 1904, the Edward VII 6d purple, overprinted I.R. Official, has earned the handle “Britain’s rarest stamp” due to the fact that it was issued on the very day that an official order came into effect  withdrawing all official stamps from use.

 

The only known examples of this stamp in existence today belong to the Royal Collection and one or two museums such as the National Postal Museum.

‘Examples of this rarity just don’t come on to the open market’ said Stanley Gibbons Director of Great Britain Stamps, Vince Cordell.

This wonderful philatelic treasure is the key stamp for any collector hoping to build a complete collection of Great Britain.

‘This is an extraordinary opportunity to acquire one of the rarest and most coveted stamps in the world’ said Mr Cordell.

This stamp is the only known example to have been in private hands, which came from a collection in Switzerland in the 1950s and has been passed from one private collection to another before being offered to Stanley Gibbons earlier this year.

For these reasons, the 6d I.R. Official has become known as a ‘mythological’ stamp. Collectors from around the world, visiting the London 2010 International Stamp exhibition have been fascinated by this rarity on the Stanley Gibbons stand.

‘It’s great to see people’s eyes widen when they see we have the 6d I.R. Official here on the stand. They can see that it really is here and we do have it for sale’ said Stanley Gibbons Director of Group Sales and Marketing, Keith Heddle.

So far no one has parted with the £375,000 needed to own Britain’s rarest stamp but collectors around the world are enjoying the spectacle of seeing this rare philatelic treasure for themselves.

‘The exhibition forms part of an ambition to encourage locals to embrace their history and Islamic culture, which we believe stamps play a major role in. This event is about education,’ Khoory added.

Khoory, who has been an avid stamp collector since his school days, hopes that this event will inspire those who already take an interest in cultural history, to come forward and join the association to broaden the knowledge base.

‘The association has a little over 250 members at the moment, although not all of them are active members. In addition to that, we believe there to be several interested philatelists in the region who have not made contact with us. We are here to benefit them, so we hope many of them will come forward after this event.’ (supplied) 7 of 11

The new event is another booster for the emirate’s reputation as a centre for Arabic cultural events. Sharjah was named as Capital of Islamic Culture 2014 last year.

Among the exhibits is a rare collection of stamps made in Iraq during the 1917-1923 British occupation of the country, including one stamp that is entirely unique

‘My two most valuable items would be a cover with a pair of Baghdad in British Occupation stamps, one of which has the word Baghdad missing, which is the only copy known,’ said Iraqi Freddy Klatastchy, a collector who moved to London in 1973 aged 16

‘The other item is a multiple of eight of the 6 annas Iraq in British Occupation stamp issued in 1918 with two stamps missing the central vignette. Again these are the only two known copies,’ Klatastchy added.

EPA president Abdulla Khoory hopes the exhibition would encourage the local Emirati population to take a more active interest in the study and preservation of stamps and develop their understanding of the cultural relevance stamps have within the UAE.

The exhibition will welcome exhibitors from all over the world to Sharjah for the five day event, taking place from 22nd to 27th September, that will for the first time exclusively feature stamp collections synonymous with Arabic cultural history. (

Unusual covers franked with Pošta Československá 1919 stamps

 

 

The Pošta Československá 1919 stamp issue

 was valid only few months

and because of surcharge paid to face values it was not widely used in postal operations. Majority existing covers franked with the issue was produced by stamp collectors for two main reasons:

 

1)   To get rare stamps “on covers” – at that time it was quite common to collect cancelled stamps and many owners of rare stamps preferred them postally used.

 

2)   To use cheap stamps for franking of philatelic mail ; this was caused by need to buy many normal stamps to get few rare stamps ; sometimes the collectors was pushed to buy 100 “normal stamps” to be allowed to buy stamps with low press run. Typical example of such covers you can see at fig. 1 .

 

 

 

Fig. 1 – philatelic cover franked with Hradcany stamp and with one Austrian and one Hungarian stamp overprinted with Pošta Československá 1919 overprint

(correct postage of 25 Heller for domestic letter)

 

There is no wonder, that the stamp collectors of that time hated the stamp issue and some of them stopped collecting of Czechoslovak stamps, because they were sure, that they can never get all issued stamps and their collection will be never complete. Very hard for collecting of stamp country, which first stamps were issued only one year before the stamp set … .

 

Sometimes we can find a cover really went through postal system franked with the stamp issue. I don´t talk about rare covers being sold now at leading international auctions houses for many thousands of dollars, but about “normal” covers being franked with usual values of the set and being really sent for postal purposes. Example of such covers you can see at fig. 2.

 

 

Fig. 2

 

This is original Austrian field post card being franked with 15 Heller Pošta Československá 1919 stamp and mailed in Jan. 1920 as confirms not very clear machine cancel of Prague. The franking is correct, 15 Heller was standard postal rate for domestic postcards.  This card was sent without any philatelic interest, the sender remembers his friend, that he has not return him a book and strongly asked him to do it immediately.

 

 

The other example is yet more interesting, however this card is situated on the edge of philatelic and non-philatelic covers. But because it has not been returned to sender and the message seems like normal correspondence between two collectors of postcards, we can believe, that main purpose for its mailing was the message and not the stamp (fig. 3a+b). The card was sent from Prague to Beyrouth in Syria (today in Lebanon). Covers franked with the issue mailed abroad are very unusual. In addition, this card was prepared in way very popular at that time – with postage stamp being affixed on picture side. The postal cancel belongs to Praha – Hrad post office (Prague-Castle), which nicely accompanies the picture side showing Charles Bridge being situated below the castle. The postage rate of 20 Heller corresponds to the international postcard rate of that time.

 

 

 

Fig. 3a + b

 

 

However the above examples will never be sold at any auction for high amount of money, such cards are always welcome by collectors and there is no reason for their discrimination in our collections.

 

Rare VI stamp sells for $225,000

 

Missing Virgin Cripps

On June 28, one of the four existing ‘Missing Virgins’, the rarest Virgin Islands stamp, sold for £140,490 ($225,000) at Spink of London during a fiercely fought auction.

A spokesperson at Spinks said that this is “a new world record price” for this great rarity.

The stamp belonged to the Chartwell Collection of British Empire stamps formed by Sir Cyril Humphrey Cripps, a well known investor, philanthropist, and avid philatelist who regularly visited the BVI since the early 1970s.

Of the three examples of the Missing Virgin that were auctioned during the last decade this is believed to be the finest.

Described as “one of the world’s greatest and most sought after rarities”  this variety occurred on the 1867 1 Shilling, one of the earliest two-colour stamps, when the letterpress black silhouette of the “Virgin” was omitted leaving the incomplete stamp with only its  rose carmine lithographed background.

The Cripps example had not been on the market for almost half a century.Other Virgin Islands highlights of the Cripps collection did well: a stampless 1864 cover with the extremely rare Crowned Circle postmark “PAID/AT/TORTOLA” (estimated at £6,000-8,000) fetched about £20,500 ($32,500); and the double 4D overprint on 1 Shilling found a new home for £7,800 ($12,300), this being an underestimated stamp that is just about as rare as the Missing Virgin when the overprint is clearly double and not skidded.

According to reports, none of the great rarities made it back to the Virgin Islands and only one interesting lot was secured by a BVI-based collector.

The ‘Missing Virgin’ actually did better than the very popular Bermuda rarities which included the Perots on cover — with the highest price paid being £128,790 ($206,000) for a cover with an 1853 One penny.

The legendary 2 pence Mauritius “POST OFFICE” sold for £1,053,090  ($1,684,000) — a new record price for a stamp sold in the United Kingdom. However, most impressively, this segment of the Cripps Collection of British Empire stamps brought a sale total of £1,750,0005 ($2,800.000).

The following day Spink sold the first segment of the Chartwell Collection of Great Britain stamps with a deluge of great rarities. This sale also attracted record prices.

Over the next 18 months Spink will be offering more items from the Cripps Collection with a schedule that includes no less than nine sales.

The prices listed above include the 20% commission charged on the hammer price.

InterAsia Auctions Hosting Rare Stamp Sale in HK

 

InterAsia Auctions is hosting a spectacular sale of rare stamps this weekend – one of the largest auctions of its kind ever held in Hong Kong.

Spanning 2,200 lots from Asian postal history, the auction is expected to realize in excess of HK$45,000,000 (US$5,750,000). The two-day auction will be headlined by the exceedingly rare 1897 Red Revenue 2c Green Surcharge, “The Red Lady in a Green Dress” (top). Harking back to the Qing Dynasty, only seven such examples remain and with a presale estimate of HK$8,000,000 – it is set to become the most valuable stamp in Chinese history.

 

The auction also includes a second major rarity from the Qing Dynasty, the only known envelope affixed with the legendary “Emerald Lady” (valued at HK$2,500,000) as well as a 150-lot offering of the 1878-85 Large Dragons: China’s first stamps.  It is the first time in roughly 15 years that such a major series has appeared on the auction market and it boasts a presale estimate in excess of HK$4,700,000.

The Qing Dynasty pieces are also complemented by Jane and Dan Sten Olsson’s collection which dates back to the Early Republic period of China and is headlined by the “Five Treasures of the Republic”. These rarities from 1911-1949 have been given a presale estimate of HK$3,000,00, while the rarest of the five, the 1925 3c on 4c Inverted Surcharge, boasts a presale estimate of HK$1,000,000 alone. Only five unused examples exist today.

 

Dr. Jeffrey Schneider, Interasia’s director said: “Collectors from all over the world are inquiring about these rare stamps. Stamps have always been significant in Chinese culture, being seen as important cultural icons and treasures and in fact are often referred to as art in miniature.”

“We are also no doubt seeing the results of the almost unprecedented economic growth of Mainland China and the resultant investment boom in almost anything China-related not only in Greater China but throughout the world from Chinese and non-Chinese alike, whether it be stocks, real estate, art, stamps, or coins.”

 

The auction will be held at The Park Lane Hotel, Hong Kong from July 31- August 1.

 

Rare stamps of China

China have issued more than 1000 sets of definitive, commemorative and special stamps since 1949. The charming China stamps with distinctive themes, rich content and unique artistry are records of the over-five-thousand-year history from the very ancient times to modern China. Among them, some stamps become very rare and out of the common.


Blue military stamp, 21mm*32mm, Perforation 14. In 1953, Ministry of Post and Telecommunications issued the first set military stamp, total 3 stamps, and the third bule
military stamp was the last.


In 1952, Ministry of Post and Telecommunications planned to issue one set stamp in commemoration the 35 Anniv. of the October Revolution. Before the issue, the Propaganda Department of China indicated the title “the Great Soviet October Relolutionn” is in error and all stamps need to destroied and reprinted. About 40,000 stamps were sold at last.


On June 15th 1956, Ministry of Post and Telecommunications planned to issue the special
stamp
S15 Scenic Spots of Beijing , when the stamp was printed, the third Morning of Tianan
Men looks bad and was called “the nuclear glare of Tiananmen”, so this stamp was not issued.


In 1962, Ministry of Post and Telecommunications issued stamp
C92 Scientists of Ancient
China
. Before the issue, a mistake was found in the first stamp when print in works. The birth
time of Cai Lun should be Gongyuan (pinyin, A.D. ) was printed as Gongyuan Qian(B.C.), and
the workers corrected the printing plate luckily they missed one and noone found this. Later
when this stamp set issued, there is one variety item in each stamp sheet.

 

 

My dad is an avid stamp collector. While he does have some US stamps in his collection, he mainly focuses on older stamps from China.

He used to purchase stamps exclusively from reputable stamp companies, but recently he’s been looking for good deals on rare stamps through eBay.

In the world of stamps, errors often cause the stamp to be worth much more than its face value since they’re highly sought after by collectors.

One such stamp is a 1962 stamp showing Tsai Lun, the inventor of paper. Right before the stamps were to begin the printing process, they discovered that the birth date had an extra character that erroneously listed the birth date as BC rather than AD. They had to correct the printing plates manually, but omitted one of them, causing a single error stamp to be printed with each batch.

Here’s a photograph of an actual error stamp compared to a “photoshopped” version showing the difference:

 

That single erroneous character causes this stamp to be listed among the rarest of Chinese stamps, and causes its value to be upwards of $5,000 rather than tens of dollars for the normal stamp.

Earlier this week my dad bid in an auction for one of these stamps. While he knows eBay is filled with counterfeit goods, everything seemed to point towards this stamp being legitimate. The user who had it up for auction was a top-rated eBay seller with over 1,000+ feedback ratings and a 100% positive feedback history. He also had a number of other listings for much more expensive stamps. After bidding $1,000 for this $5,000 stamp, my dad ended up winning for $400.

While he was happy about his “steal”, we both felt unease regarding whether or not the stamp was genuine. Luckily for us, the listing had a photograph of the stamp. Here’s the photo of the stamp side-by-side with a photo of a genuine error stamp:

 

At this point, my background in Photoshop came into play. I realized I could examine the stamps extremely closely and compare them using Photoshop. In fact, Photoshop has a feature that is perfect for this type of comparison. It’s called Auto-Align Layers. What it does is magically align multiple layers based on similar features. Here’s what I did:

  1. 1.     Have each stamp as a separate layer
  2. 2.     Select the two layers
  3. 3.     Click Edit and then Auto-Align Layers
  4. 4.     Set Projection to “Auto” and click Ok

Voila! The two stamps became magically aligned, allowing me to turn the top layer on and off for easy comparison. Here’s the exact same comparison after Photoshop’s auto alignment (hover your mouse over it to compare):

 

Minor variations in the appearance of a stamp are acceptable, since there are slight variations in the printing plates. Also, though we were initially suspicious of the difference in color, we discovered that it was probably introduced in the imaging process after finding the exact same color variation in an official stamp book.

However, what caught my eye was the single error character in the upper left hand corner. If you examine it during the comparison, you’ll see that it looks different and is shifted upwards in the eBay auction version. We suddenly realized that the same was in fact a legitimate stamp… A legitimate non-error stamp with the error character added in.

With this evidence my dad gave the seller a phone call (yeah, they responded with a number when we asked for it), and confronted them about the forgery. They feigned ignorance and stated that they didn’t know much about stamps, which was hardly believable considering they had other listings for $80,000 stamps. However, they were willing to cancel the transaction and did so immediately.

What I realized through this whole experience was how useful Photoshop can be for fields seemingly unrelated to photography or graphics. I’m sure there are still many stamp experts out there who use magnifying glasses to try and detect counterfeit or altered stamps, while Photoshop can do the same thing much more accurately and efficiently

 


On November 23th, 1968, the period of Culture Revolution, Ministry of Post and
Telecommunications issued one stamp The Whole Country is Red. When the stamp
started to be sold, in the same day, one editor of Sinomaps Press found they missed
the Xisha Islands and the Nansha Islands on the stamps, he reported this to the
Post and the issue was stopped.

Rare tiger stamp leaps to £34,000 in Singapore collectors’ sale

Torn in half, but rejoined into an attractive whole, the 5 cent blue is one of the great rarities of Pahang

At the weekend, Spink held two substantial auctions of rare stamps in Singapore, a growing centre for collecting.

The grandeur of the Stolz collection with its sale of a cover worth nearly £100,000 has slightly overshadowed the other. However, as it was too significant to overlook, it’s time to redress the balance.

Although there were a couple of covers with Indian stamp used in Singapore (overlapping with the Stolz auction), the key lots in the collectors’ sale were unattached rarities.

The first key lot was a strip of rare stamps from Brunei, specifically a strip of 1896 (1 October) overprints on stamps of Labuan issue. The black and vermilion strip of ten, being a complete vertical row of the sheet with margins at both top and toe has a ‘two cents’ overprint on each of the eight cents stamps.

Except that there is a slight variation in this case: The fifth stamp received two overprints whilst the final stamp received none. This is because the surcharging was made from a setting of fifty in two operations. On one sheet the misplacement of the plate resulted in the fifth row receiving a second surcharge, and the tenth row receiving none.

One of the greatest rarities in Brunie philately, the strip sold for S$27,000 (£13,006) – in the middle of its estimate range.

Another rarity sporting an overprint double is a block of British Military Administration 1945-48 Issue 25c dull purple and scarlet.

The multiple, numbering twenty (2×10) being rows three and four of the sheet with margins at left and at right, stamps 1, 2 and 10 in each row show the overprint double whilst stamps 4 to 9 in each row shows partial ink impressions of the overprint in reverse on the face.

Only a single sheet is known with doubling of the overprint, and this block shows the effect the best, which explains why it achieved a winning bid of S$46,000 (£22,158).


Reunited rare stamp bisect

The top lot however is both attractive and fascinating, being a diagonal bisect of an 1897 Kuala Lipis Provisional from which the two halves have been reunited. The 5 cent blue has ‘3 c’ in black manuscript on one half and ‘3c’ on the other.

Fine and exceptional, with fresh colour and with part of its original gum, the unused stamp is unique and one of the great rarities of Pahang philately – even having graced the great collection of Count Ferrary.

The piece hit the top of its estimate range: S$70,000 (£33,719), and will make a fine investment for its new owner.

Have a look at this picture of New Zealand’s rarest stamp – see anything unusual about it?

It’s a bit hard to see because of the post marks but the centre scene is actually upside down. 

It’s known as the Taupo Invert

 and it’s the only survivor out of the 80 incorrectly printed stamps.

The stamp was formally presented to Te Papa by New Zealand Post’s Chief Executive, Brian Roche, today.  The stamp will be immediately available to researchers, and will feature prominently in a book on the 1898 pictorial issue which is currently being written. It will also take pride of place in future philatelic exhibitions, both at Te Papa and potentially in the wider community.

The image was originally printed in 1898 as part of a 14-stamp pictorial issue showing a variety of New Zealand scenes. In a 1903 re-issue, a single sheet of 80 Lake Taupo stamps was incorrectly printed when the sheet was passed through the printing press for the second stage the wrong way around.

The error was not discovered until 1930 when a farmer in England came across it while searching for stamps in his childhood album to sell for cash during the Great Depression. A year later it fetched £161 at an auction in London – a large sum at the time.

It was then sold to the Marquis De Rosny and did not reappear for sale until 1980 when it was sold to an American buyer by French stamp dealers for 110,500 francs (then about US$18,000). It was subsequently referenced at a number of international shows and in sales lists until finally, in 1998, it was purchased by New Zealand Post for a record $125,000 to coincide with a centenary commemoration reprint of the 1898 pictorial issue.

At Te Papa, the stamp will form part of an existing collection representing the 170 years history of the New Zealand Post Group.

World class New Zealand rare stamp collection to sell

The second section of Joseph Hackmey’s assembly of Commonwealth stamps goes under the hammer

Early last year, Spink Shreve Galleries sold the first of two parts of the greatest collection of New Zealand rare stamps ever assembled – as recognised by an International Award that owner Joseph Hackmey received for the Commonwealth selection.

On Thursday – the very next day after they sell some of Bill Gross’s fantastic collection of European stamps – the second part of the collection is to go under the hammer.

The stamps, dating from 1855-1872 include rarities from Ferrary, de Worms, Caspary, Dale-Lichtenstein, Pack, Stanley, Agabeg, Pearson and John Woolfe. Two of the most exciting examples are:

An 1855 1d dull carmine on white paper. Actually, two unused examples are on offer in the auction, of which one is from the collection of Sigmund Adler. However, it is the other which is truly exceptional, with a fresh bright colour.

One of the finest examples known, it bears an estimate of $50,000-60,000, whilst the Adler piece is pegged at $30,000-40,000. There are also some two penny dull blues for sale from the same date.


Three penny lilac stamp of New Zealand

Secondly, from 1862 is a 3d lilac, unused without gum, with clear to large margins all round except at upper left. It is of fresh bright colour and, despite slight thinning at the top and minor soiling, is as desirable as anything in the sale, being one of only two examples recorded.

This, one of the rarest of all British Commonwealth stamps, is listed at $40,000-50,000. The auction takes place in New York and over the internet.

The Suez Canal

In our May 19th-21st 2011 Auction series, we have the Samir Fikry Collection of Postal Services in the Suez Canal Zone. Including some of the rarest and most attractive items in Egyptian philately. The following is a brief history of this massive undertaking.

 

Suez Canal Company Stamp

Nowadays, over 140 years after it’s coming into existence, the Suez Canal has developed into an obvious feature of geography, comparable to the Straits of Gibraltar. However, for the greater part of the 19th century it was barely a dream. And it was not the English who dreamt about it, but the French. Although the direct waterway to India eventually proved to be one of the most important pillars of the British Empire, conventional thinking in early Victorian London did not like the idea. The dreaming, though, was done by the most famous of Frenchmen, the likes of Talleyrand, Napoleon I, Saint-Simon, Thiers, Napoleon III, and, of course, Ferdinand de Lesseps, following in his father’s footsteps.

To understand what seems to be one of those inexplicable ironies of history, it helps to have a feeling for the typically French delusions of grandeur. While Britannia ruled the waves, the French revolution was less a thrust of power and enrichment than the celebration of science and rationality embodied in the idea of progress. If Bonaparte’s engineers had not miscalculated the level of the Red Sea as opposed to the level of the Mediterranean, work at the isthmus would have begun then and there. If the disciples of Saint-Simon had not elected Cairo of all places to make a stand for the total liberation of womanhood, perhaps the Egyptians would have lent an ear to their clamours for “a faster way to hold hands with our brethren in China”. If, in 1840, a bellicose Adolphe Thiers had not dangerously tried to cater to French public opinion bent on revenge for Waterloo, Lord Palmerston would probably have been more lenient with Mohammed Ali and less adamant against the Canal. And finally, if Napoleon III had not indisposed the Divan at Constantinople by promoting direct French intervention in Syria, Tunisia, and the Holy Land, Ferdinand de Lesseps might have obtained from the Sultan the necessary firman (royal decree) to start work at an earlier date.

To measure the disbelief de Lesseps was up against, let us relish in the comment made by the London Daily News in 1855, after one of his fund raising tours to the City: “The literature of fiction is not dead in the land of Alexandre Dumas. The most extravagant romancers are children com­pared with the great discoverer of new Pelusium (de Lesseps*), trying to convince his audience that 250 sick Europeans and 600 conscripted Arabs will accomplish this stupendous work, without money, without water, without stones.”

In 1854 and 1856 Ferdinand de Lesseps had obtained a concession from Viceroy Mohammed Said Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, to create a company to construct a canal open to ships of all nations. The Suez Canal Company (Compagnie Universelle du Canal Maritime de Suez) came into being on 15 December 1858 and work started on the canal on April 25, 1859.

 

Inauguration of the Suez Canal in 1869 at Port Said

The canal opened to shipping on 17 November 1869, and not only had the Canal been inaugurated in grand pomp, in the presence of de Lesseps’ cousin, empress Eugenie, but also world opinion had changed drastically as to it’s commercial and strategic significance. On Sunday, November 14, 1875, the British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was supping with his old friend Lionel Rothschild at 148 Picadilly, as they did almost every weekend. During the main course the butler approached with the telegram salver. It was a message from one of the Barons’s Paris informants. “French government hesitating.”

Both men instantly knew what it was all about. The debtridden Khedive wanted to sell his 177’000 Suez shares for one hundred million gold francs. Since he needed the money desperately, he would be in no position to refuse an equivalent offer of four million pounds if it came within 48 hours. Disraeli was aware that the French, still reeling under the crushing 1871 defeat of their armies by the hands of the Iron Chancellor Bismarck, would need more time than that to raise such an amount. On the other hand, the popular Prime Minister was sure of the support of his Queen and his cabinet. He looked at Lionel. They had stopped eating. The Baron nodded. A guttural, lengthy “aahhh” escaped his lips. “We will take them” concluded his friend.

In those times, no country in the world would have been able to dish out four million pounds in cash within 48 hours. But N. M. Rothschild & Sons could do it. With one stroke of pen, Her Majesty’s Government obtained control of the Suez Canal Company. And the Queen received a tri­umphant note from her beloved “Dizzy”: “You have it, Madam. The French Government have been out-generalled. From now on, the globe’s life­ line is yours.”

(*) Reference to the Pharao Sesostris, who lived in the 19th Century B.C., and whom Herodot credited with the construction of the very first Suez canal.

 

The Suez Canal Between Kantara and El-Ferdane

One might wonder why this place, for hundreds of years, had remained a forlorn little fishing village. At the northern tip of the Red Sea it could certainly have developed earlier into a busy transit harbour between East and West. The explanation is somewhat technical. Prior to 1835, the frightlully hot climate, the rocky and uncharted seabed, the numer­ous and fierce bands of local pirates, the unpredictable winds (with endless stretches of absolute calm) proved too much of an obstacle for the ordinary sailing ship. Since Waghorn knew about this, he first planned to start his Overland Road not in Suez, but several hundred miles to the south in Cossair, which would have imposed some strenuous mountain and desert crossing in order to reach the Nile. It finally needed the arrival of the paddle-steamer to radically change the problem, awaking Suez from it’s dreamy past.

Ferdinand de Lesseps

 

Ferdinand de Lesseps

Ferdinand de Lesseps, without whom the Suez Canal would never have taken shape in his century, died insane at the respectable age of 89 years. His life had been graced by three great strokes of luck: to have been the son of the first French consul in Egypt, a friend of Mohammed Ali, to have been a distant cousin of Eugenie de Montijo, who became the wife of Napoleon III, and to have been able to win the total trust of Said Pasha, who as a little boy had depended on him as a friend, protector and spiritual guide. De Lesseps knew very well how to take advantage of all these circum­stances, which made him the most popular man in France at the out start of the 3rd Republic. His tragedy was to believe that miracles could happen twice. The ruinous Panama Canal turned out to be quite another matter. After having sunk over one billion gold francs of public contributions into his American dream with­ out any tangible results, and before even his condemnation for fraud and embezzlement, he totally despaired, to the point of losing his mind and his
