Today I have two stamps from San Marino ; the first one belongs to a set 37 1921 "Numerals".. As you can see the stamp has some rust spots , but the overall condition is not to bad..there is nothing special to say about the stamp, and without a National catalog it is really impossible to tell more..
this stamp show us "The Rocca " that is the State Prison.it is a ,somehow, beautiful stamp, and it belongs to a set 19 1929. The set was issued between 1929 and 1935 ; International catalogs , don't give names to these series of definitive stamps, so I gave it one "Views from San Marino (1929/1935)"
One more time , I wish to say that I am not an expert in any of the countries I collect ( and I collect them all!!) .. Your comments are really very appreciated and I will make special updates to these posts, with the corrections You find (if they are valid , of course!!)...This task of providing You a Online View over the Day to Day New entries in my small collection, exposes my lack of knowledge and other (I like to think they are small..!!..) attitude problems.. I think that in the end it will be a good project..
Here are 5 stamps of the Definitive set 18 1922 "King Albert I (1922/1927)" ; of the stamp of 25c , I could say that there are two colors associated with it.. Magenta and violet.. this one is the violet and the differences in catalog value are small ( I think..!)
First I must say that the 75c and 1F stamps could be treated as individual series; the 1st was issued in 01/06/1932 and the 2nd
in 15/06/1931; the others belong to a definitive set 8 1931 "King Albert I (1931/1932)". I really don't like those postmarks with letters( they almost incapacitate the stamp..!) [there is nothing like the old and traditional circular postmark...]
stamp from Set 3 1946 "Ostend-Dover Mail-boat Service Centenary"
Perf: 13.5 x 14
stamp from set 4 1934 "International Exhibition, Brussels."
From my small experience , I could say that a stamp like this could have different varieties associated..for example , stamps that only were sold in the Exhibition itself, special postmarks, etc ( in other countries , some of these varieties exists in events like this one...) .. it's the kind of detail you only get through National catalogs..
Perf: 14 x 13.5
To finish for today I have a stamp of the series 10 1905 "King Leopold II and Arms of Belgium (1905/1911)" [one more time , the name doesn't exist...I invented one!]..
