I ordered the 2019 Mystic Heirloom Supplement and saw that I only needed to hack 4 pages, and of those 4, two were really optional. So, I had some fun the last few days. Here’s what we have:
Page 1544 – Cactus Flowers. I modified the page to allow you to mount the whole booklet.
Page 1548 – Corals. Both corals are now horizontal strips
Page 1562 – Military Working Dogs. The dogs stay connected
Page 1568 – Spooky Silhouettes. The stamps are a block of 4 now instead of a strip.
Here are some screenshots of the pages:
All files can be downloaded from my Google Drive. The file name for this one is the 2019 Retrofit Kit. These files are considered “beta” because I don’t have all the stamps yet. Please test fit stamps and let me know if the box sizes are OK.
In following with what I did for previous 50 stamp se-tenants, I have made the page 651-657 hack. The page has a high resolution 300 DPI scan of the whole Wildflowers page in color, along with a PDF form text box that will let you fill in the location of your 50 sheet se-tenant. The back is duplicate of page 658, so you can use it as a drop in replacement for all 4 pages.
This one took some work. I had it all done. I had my wife proofread it. I printed pages and began to make sure all the stamps fit properly. I had to resize a few blocks. Then I kept mounting. And when all was said and done, all the pages were full, and there was still one stamp sitting on the table, waiting to be mounted. So, back to the computer I go to redesign 5 pages to make one stamp fit. Then I spoke to a stamp collector in Ukraine, and found out there were WAY MORE definitives issued than what Colnect.com and even the MICHEL catalog had listed. So had to go back and do 2 more pages of definitives. But, it’s finally done!
As a side note, I reached out MICHEL and the will be adding the rest of these definitives to their catalog as soon as I get them in the mail from Ukraine and provide them with a high resolution scan of the stamps, so they can see the microprint.
And here is a sample page:
As always, stamp pages are available on my Google Drive.
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.
