Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today Episode #182

Today we are here with President Trump and President Putin in Helsinki Finland so obviously our conversation today is going to be about Finnish Perforations.  After all, what else could we discuss?

We also discuss some FNR’s that you can see on our Facebook page – the stamps show Monte Python, Dragons and many other topics.

Episode #181 – German East Africa in WW1 and Varnish Bars in Austria

Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today Episode #181

Today we discuss German East Africa in World War 1 and General Vorbeck.  This interesting area, that most people couldn’t point to on a map in a drunken bet but after this episode, you will know all these colonies and what they did in World War 1.

Then on a happier note, we discuss pre-war Austria and their experiment with adding varnish bars to stamps.

Enjoy.

Episode #179 – Today we are discussing the Simpsons and Precancels

Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today Episode #179

 Today we are discussing the Simpsons and Precancels.

We discuss a 2 cent Harding stamp (GO TO FACEBOOK; TO THE STAMP SHOW HERE TODAY PAGE, TO SEE IT) that has a precancel from Springfield so we couldn’t help ourselves but to discuss the Simpsons.

Then, because we are a stamp podcast we also delve into the precancel itself and discuss the history of precanceled stamps. Why, How, When – we cover all the bases on precancels on stamps including if one with full gum that has never been used is “Mint” or not.
