Website Worth Viewing- Newsletter Editor
In the winter 2009-10 issue of the Newsletter, David Ball wrote an article entitled ‘Do you need to buy a new stamp catalogue?’. In this, he brought to members’ attention, a website that lists new issues of various countries, "As we have had several new members since then and I have found it useful myself, I am repeating his instructions on how to get to it: Type in ‘All registered stamps issued by (country of your choice) in (year of your choice) and click on search’. (last year should come up; current year won’t. Don’t be put off if it says last year is unavailable; just ignore) ‘You will get page 1 with the coloured stamps of that country which you can print off.. You can then click on all the other page numbers as you wish.’" Whilst writing this, I checked France, 2013- it came up with 28 pages, 10 to a page. What David didn’t mention is that you can enter a theme, such as ‘bridges’, plus chosen year, and stamps from different countries on that theme will appear. Brilliant.
