MICHEL assigned a catalog number to the second 2022 Self Stamp

I sent MICHEL’s editor an email about the second self-stamp, along with scans that Ukrposhta provided me. They assigned it a catalog number and will publish it their next issue of their Rundschau magazine.

So, expect an update to the 2022 supplement soon.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 1994 Reissue

I just figured out that I messed up the definitive stamps. That’s the only page that has changed:

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2022 Supplement

The Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2022 is ready with some minor caveats.

This supplement is PARTIALLY INCOMPLETE because of the following:

  1. The second Self-Stamp, released on November 18, 2022 does not have a MICHEL catalog number assigned yet
  2. The Bakhmut and Kremenchuk 2022 definitives also do not have a MICHEL catalog number. But since these stamps are a previous design with just the year microprint changed, I
    have a really good guess as to what the number is going to be, so I inserted my best-guess number.

As usual, there are US Letter and A4 sized pages. But this year, I have been experimenting with Scott Nation size paper, which is 10″x11½”. With these pages I completely changed the layout and the fonts. This is more a “technical preview” than anything else.

If you do choose to print these out, you will need to use 10″x11½” paper. If you try to “shrink to fit” in your print dialog box, the boxes will be the wrong wise and the stamps will not fit.

The regular page looks like this:

The Scott size pages look like this:

The Scott-sized pages are obviously bigger, so they fit more stamps.

As usual the 7-zip file with all the stuff you need to print or hack the pages can be found on my Google Drive:

2022 Ukrainian Stamp Album Supplement Chugging Along…

I am working on the supplement as we speak. The big holdup for me is that Ukrposhta released two self-stamps in 2022. MICHEL assigned a catalog number for the first stamp released on July 5, 2022.

But the second self-stamp, released on November 18, 2022 does not have a MICHEL number.

Since MICHEL skipped right past it in their numbering system, I can’t even guess what the MICHEL number will be.

For now, it’s going in without a catalog number, and I will release an updated page when this gets an official catalog number.

I sent an email to the editor of the MICHEL catalog a few weeks ago, but have not gotten a reply yet.

Ukraine 2022 is a Bit of a Mess

I got my 2022 stamps in from BeeUkrainian on eBay. I put most of them in mounts this evening and tried to write down stamp names and MICHEL numbers.

And, the mess begins…

  1. Ukraine withdrew all stamps for sale that had a V or Z on it due to the war.
  2. There are stamps that were supposed to come out in February, and never got released, for obvious reasons.
  3. MICHEL still has not issued stamp numbers for all the 2022 releases.
  4. There are stamps in my year set that MICHEL has not assigned a number to, and I can’t find them on Colnect. The stamp obviously exists, since I’m holding them in my hands now. But I have no idea when they came out.
  5. Ukrposhta has completely changed their postal mini-market. I can no longer see every stamp they issued along with the release date. Now I can only see what they have in stock for sale, and I can’t see release dates.

So, even thought I really want to get these pages done, I have a LOT of homework to do here.

“Russian Warship, Go F*** Yourself!” Stamp Page

Better late than never! I finally finished the “Russian Warship Go F*** Yourself!” stamp page, and here is what it looks like.

As usual, the 7zip file is on my Google Drive here:

Please read page 4 for printing instructions.

My Ukrainian Ebay Seller is Back, and He Gave Me a Great Deal on the Moskva Stamps

Soon as they come in, I’ll make pages ASAP. I know some people are only collecting this one stamp, so let’s make them happy.

Russian Warship, Go F*** Yourself! Stamp

There seems to be a lot of interest in this stamp, for obvious reasons.

If people want me to make sheets of just the F and W stamps with and without the Moskva, I need some help.

Please place the stamps in a mount and give me the exact measurements of the mount and I can put a sheet together.

For the stamps without the Moskva, I would want the stamp with the label still attached.

I can do pages for full sheets also, if you stick the full sheets in a mount and measure the mount.

I don’t have these stamps and there are a LOT of forgeries. From what I gather, these stamps were ONLY available gummed and perforated. So, if you have self-adhesive stamps, you have fakes. I am trying to get more details on this. There are a few websites that talk about forgeries, but don’t tell you what to look out for.

Having a Little Fun This Week

I’m having a little “What If…” moment. What if I could make stamp pages the same size as Scott National pages ( 10 x 11 1/2), on cream colored pages, and were a homage to Scott pages. This is what I came up with:

Obviously, printing 10 x 11 1/2 pages is a challenge for most people, so this is not practical for mass-distribution. But I think I’ll release as PDF at some point for people to comment on.
