The Lighthouse

New Entries

Yesterday I spent all the night classifying these group of 21 stamps...I started after have watched my Benfica win Juventus..(Good game!!), so they were  22.00H.. I finished at 01.30H of the morning..(with 1 or 2 stops to smoke ...).. All of this to say that it should be many more time if the stamps were from different series...15 of them belong only to 4 series, and in this cases I can use the "Clone" tool of my software...that is to say , if you have 4 stamps of the same series , you just have to fill one time the main characteristics of the set (perforation, width, height, watermarks, name of the series, date of issue [if it is the same for all stamps], Country, etc, and just copy("clone" it ) it and change catalog number, color, face value and catalog value of the stamp... It is a very valuable tool , because of the time saved in repetitions some times boring... I think that today all the stamp Software's have this Tool, but I just have found it a Year or so after I began working with the program..(Clone?? Hmmm... let's see what is this ...)

the stamps I present today are all common stamps , of very small catalog value... Yet, they are real works of Art...In my opinion , Russian stamps are , with very few exceptions, very well designed, in most cases a pleasure to see..(Ohu..!! I remember now those ugly stamps from the standard definitive series from 1922 to 1927 ... )

  1. Приятно видеть что марки твоей страны кого-то радуют. К сожалению в сегодняшней России коллекционирование не в моде......надеюсь это временно....
