I'm pretty sure it says on the website that the first 1,500 Assassins stamps were ungummed.

Best way of checking if a stamps is gummed is to lick it and stick it on an envelope or perhaps in your album :lol:

To my knowledge only the assassins stamp can be found with a variety that isn't gummed for the reasons explained by Terry. All others should be gummed because they are intended to be stuck on envelopes and posted. It is only an odd few people (or is that a few odd people) that buy them for other purposes!

Is there a list anywhere of exactly what stamps are out there, how to tell the differences between them and all the different varieties of each there are including info on franks and specials?

It would be a useful resource for people finding the stamps late on especially since a lot of the stamp info has disappeared from the main site now.

Just a suggestion.

Its being worked on. But each time I think I have got everything something else comes along like the guild stamps. So heres the dilemma

More stamps or a complete list?

The Journal does a good job of explaining. Given time we will be able to take up the suggestion but we are reaping the whirlwind that has been sown

I was hoping that some brave collector with some web space might attempt to compile a list with a little help from the management. Something that could be easily updated when necessary. I have neither a website or any clue about them so it's nothing I'd be likely to do but the opportunity to do it is out there.

Yay! It covers all the basic information and looks like it would be easy to add on to. What more do you need. Yes, I know there are things like pictures and fancy descriptions but it covers the basics.

It gives enough info for a newbie to find out what stamps are out there which is what I was trying to suggest in the first place.

What a brilliant idea.
And we’ll need someone to test out all the interesting flavours that might be found in that queen of cities, Ankh-Morpork.
Terry asked if we could do cabbage, and we could, but poor Rob Wilkins was quite ill for a while afterwards.
Strange that, because it was shortly after that little experiment that he had to go into the potting shed at Pratchett Towers, to rescue an under gardener from the effects of the ‘Oditorium’ Terry had constructed.
Bye the way, please under no account mention cabbages, or any cabbage based products to dear Rob if you see him at any time. For some strange reason he shudders and has been heard to whimper.
So back to the ‘flavours’
A free Penny Civic with the bust ‘V’ to the most original entry for odoriferous ideas.
Granny Isobel will judge because she, unlike me, cannot be bribed.
Post your suggestions on this thread, or start another if you wish.
The competition will finish 10pm UK local time. MONDAY 21 FEB

Oh and any more ‘good’ ideas will result in detention for all of you, and possibly lines as well.
Now get on with it.
