I have a question - in the details about the 15TH ANNIVERSARY LBE is says
A coveted $5 New Ankh Station Blue Triangle sport awaits a lucky stamp collector
but there's no Station Sport in the catalog's page
:?
Mainly because I don't have one. No one has sent me a scan - especially Ian!
So I cannot put one on the site :?

He didn't want to release the image until someone had got one.

Which is all well and good but here is no guarantee one of us is going to get one. :(

Mind you to settle the issue if Ian would like to send me one I will scan it for you. :D

Oook!

I was recently wandering around the Catalogue, and noticed that the Emberellas page has a section called Unreleased stamps, which shows not only the GCTS-only One Penny Actors Guild stamp, but also a "Campaign for Equal Heights 4p" stamp.

I only noticed this section this week, so for all I know it's been sitting there since the Catalogue began, but I was wondering...

I know that the Actors' stamp has a specific Year-name printed on it (which was missed due to an increase in Emporium management); but the Equal Heights one does not, so I was wondering why it wasn't released whenever it was created? Or maybe it will be release in the future? Or was it used as a GCTS item before I started collecting?

So many questions....
What ape? Oook! :book:

Was the campaign for equal heights in one of the SHJ back in the day?

Also, can anyone give me sizes of the 2018 Penny patrician sheet? The catalogue currently says 24 by 27 which I am fairly sure isn't right? I have an album that is close to completion :D

Is that a measurement you've made or a guess? It doesn't match the size of the last few years Patrician sheets. All other measurements on the site are in mm so it seems unlikely Steve'd switch to cm on this one. I don't collect sheets so I am hoping someone who does can give it a quick check.

The fact I got it wrong the first time around isn't a good advert.

Hello, I actually checking the catalogue for making some labels for my album

like this:
Presse-papiers-1.jpg


The placement of sports are indicated by the black squares... But I actually see some errors on the Catalogue :o

I check backwards from 2019

What I actually see for the last 2 years:


2019: all ok

2018
these stamps have inverted columns and rows for the sport:
Fifty Pence Cabbage Fields: show r1 c3 (must be r3 c1)
Tsort One Drachma (ditto)
Djelibeybi 1 Talent (ditto)
Unseen University Penny Farthing (ditto)

Hogswatch Letters
- links to stamps pages for "Stamps:" have bad labels and are pointed on bad links: "she***" (must be shs***)
- links for 2nd and 3rd sport have not good label and links, too
respectively must be:
SHS-AM0460-Fw (label) and ashs0460f.gif (link) for dwarf
SHS-AM0460-Dw (label) and ashs0460d.gif (link) for apple

I'll check anoter years for sheets pages later...
