Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2005 Supplement Re-release

Pandemic boredom makes a man turn to stamp collecting. I am re-releasing my 2005 Ukrainian Stamp Album supplement to include MICHEL catalog numbers and dates of issue. This is the last supplement I had to update to comply with the new format. Now I just need to wait until my 2019 stamps arrive from Ukraine.

Here is a sample page:

As usual, the supplement can be downloaded as 7zip file from my Google Drive:

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2004 Supplement Re-release

Well, it’s been a while. I took some time out today to update the 2004 Stamp album supplement to conform to the new style that includes MICHEL catalog numbers. Here is a list of things I changed:

  1. Stamps are now in Michel catalog number order through most of the supplement
  2. Michel catalog numbers are now included for every stamp
  3. Various typos fixed
  4. Descriptions for some stamps cleaned up.
  5. Master pages use vector art for map of Ukraine instead of bitmap art
  6. A whole lot of font cleanup was done. The main font used in the album is Nimbus Sans. Various pages had either Arial or Liberation Sans on them. This was all cleaned up.

And a screenshot:

All files are available on my Google Drive:

I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Posted Anything Since May 2019!

Well, it’s been a while. With the world is isolation, now seems like a good time to catch up on things like the LONG OVERDUE 2019 Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album supplement.

First I need to order stamps from the second half of 2019. But I would think most of them will be standard size. And those that aren’t, I can look up the size and cut blanks from paper.

In the current environment, I don’t know how long it will take stamps to get here.

Everyone stay safe.

Mystic Heirloom 2018 Supplement Page 1530-32 Hack

I ordered the Mystic Heirloom 2018 stamp supplement, just to see how much hacking it would need. It appears there are only 2 pages that need modification, and those really are optional, and more for the way I collect stamps.

For the Hot Wheels stamps, I decided I wanted to keep the whole sheet together, even though there are two copies of every stamp, and technically none of them touch each other.

So here is what I came up with this morning:


All downloads for these pages and older ones are on my Google Drive.

Mystic Heirloom Page 665 FIX

Well, not really a fix. More an omission. Same trip to the stamp store, and the owner told me that the Hank Williams stamp had 2 major Scott catalog numbers with 2 different perforation: 10×10 and 11¼x11½.

Since I am collecting all Scott major numbers, I decided to modify the page to include Scott 2723A. The page now looks like this:

As usual, the files are on my Google Drive here:

Mystic Heirloom Page 561

In my previous attempt to make sure whole sheet se-tenants are not broken up, I created a page that had a nice high resolution scan of the full sheet with a form fox that allow you to enter the location where you are keeping the sheet.

This is my solution going forward, so I did the same for the North American Wildlife sheet that came out in 1987.

Here is what it looks like:
