One stamp that seems missing is the Discworld convention 2006 stamp (Fools Guild little sticky bits). I only notice because I found my sheet the other day and want to break it up for the single stamp and can't remember if there is a sport or not :P
Thanks. Praise indeed considering the great site you created.
I dithered with this and some other stamps and decided they were not true Discworld stamps.
When I get the time I will do the other stamps Bernard has issued and which will include the Convention stamps under Cinderellas.

Then there's the Stamps on Post from Wincanton. There is a good complete list of these in the thread of that name here. Hard to omit some of them as they do have DW connections like the Naming of the Streets, while all of them can be classed as for use on DW Consulate mail.

As far as I am concerned they are not true Discworld stamps issued by a Discworld region and therefore I do not consider them as part of the Discworld stamp. They will appear in the Real World Cinderellas section.

That would be fine by me. It would be good to see a listing of these anywhere. Is this where the Gaspode charity issue, and the Nation stamps would go too?

Yes. When I can get around to it. I would welcome any help in cataloguing and documenting them.

5p Postage Due - Blue
Does anyone have a record of when this stamp was issued?
It was possibly first released with the 5th Anniversary LBE in July 2009.

Yes, that's definitely correct for date and LBE but I'm not sure I'd call it blue (although I am always a bit tentative on this due to my colour-blindness but blue isn't really my problem area) - the 3p postage due is certainly blue but I'd call the 5p postage due more sort of grey to be honest.

New updates to the Discworld Stamp Catalogue
I have updated and amended the stamp details with the information I received from you all. Thanks.
I have amended the stamp information to include additional images, such as the backs of the Assassins' stamps.
I have added the 8 pence pseudopolis overprint (from the Letters to Pseudopolis series).
I have added an index containing all the keywords I could think of. If you have others let me know.
