Newfoundland Miscellanea

By |April 26th, 2015|

In many ways Newfoundland is a most exciting philatelic area. Some of the classic issues are rarities (many have unfortunately been forged).

Later issues frequently have most interesting designs featuring Newfoundland's history, natural surroundings and economic activities.

Air Mail Stamps: Made to Fly

By |January 6th, 2015|

I rather like Air Mail stamps of the world, used on airmail covers (of course), which logically is why they were issued. The sight of the familiar blue and red bordered airmail envelope emits a subliminal message, evoking images of distant, beckoning, exotic places. For me, at least.
