A Flock of Northern Birds

New Entries

This daily task of putting together one more post in the Blog, is not a easy one , as I said before ... it requires time , many time... the fact that I'm unemployed gives me a lot of this precious "ingredient".. concentration is also needed ... investigating a casual historical event present in a stamp , to understand catalogs and their unique way of arranging stamp information ( each one has it's own..) and the work itself of classifying stamps, complete the picture... The flexibility and the space to "customize" the information your own way, are important requirements in a Stamp Software.. to choose one is perhaps the most important thing to do, shortly after You start buying or exchanging stamps.. if you don't act swiftly , you could end up like me , with thousands of stamps to classify... and Without time to do it (until more recent times...!)

Today, I have some stamps from Denmark ... King Christian X , due to his long reign , is related to a significant number of series..the 1913/1928  set is spectacular , and I am trying to complete it for 3 years.. still 5 (from 35.!.) stamps missing...
These stamps are from a set 10 1930 "60th Birthday of King Christian X"
Perf: 14.5 x 14

from a set 5 1936 "400th Anniversary of Church Reformation in Denmark" 
This set show us a Church, a Cathedral and a man... I think that knowing the role of this particular personality in this event is necessary..
