They’re Here!!!

I started putting stamps in mounts this evening. Some sizes are off, so I am going to need to fix a few pages.

Still have that problem with MICHEL not assigning numbers to all the 2021 stamps yet. But hopefully I can get a supplement out the door some time this weekend.

I Have This Sinking Feeling…

With current events, I have this sinking feeling there won’t be a 2022 Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album Supplement…

Still Patiently Waiting for My Ukrainian Stamps to Arrive

Shipped on January 6th. Left Ukraine on January 8th. Then tracking goes dead. The seller asked me to wait a few more weeks. It’s been 2 weeks since then. I think it’s time to assume they have lost it in transit.

The supplement is done. Just need to test fit stamps in mounts before I can put it up for general consumption.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2002 Reissue

Sometimes you make a stamp album supplement without actually having the stamps. Then, years later you get the stamps and you realize they don’t fit in the stamp boxes you made.

Well, that’s what happened with the 2002 supplement. Most of the stamp boxes were too small. When I enlarged them, I could not quite get them to fit the way they were before, so this supplement is one page longer than the old one.

I just overwrote the existing file on my Google Drive with the new one.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2020 Supplement Reissue

Two supplements in one day!

Now I give you the updated Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2020 Supplement Reissue.

When I released the 2020 supplement earlier this year, I had a warning that MICHEL stopped numbering Ukrainian stamps pretty early in 2020, and my numbers were a “best guess.” I assume this was pandemic related.

Well, my “best guess” wasn’t good enough.

So, today I cleaned it up and reposted it.

All MICHEL numbers have been fixed, and the last 5 pages have been re-arranged so that all stamps are in proper MICHEL catalog order number.

I simply overwrote the old file. You can find it on my Google Drive here:

And, I am having issues with email updates. If you missed the email, my Community US Stamp Album 2007 supplement is out.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2001 Supplement Re-Release

Spent some time this weekend and mounting 2001 Ukrainian Stamps and found some problems. Here’s what’s new:

  1. Ran the stamp descriptions through my ProWritingAid grammar checker. That fixed a LOT of typos and cleaned up grammar mistakes. There is nothing new in the descriptions. They’re just worded far better.
  2. Stamps are laid out in strict MICHEL order number.
  3. Removed the 4th Definitve Issue Stamps (158 III, 156 VI and 158 IV) because those stamps are not in the 2020/2021 Osteuropa Catalog.
  4. Fixed a bunch of stamp box sizes.
  5. There are two pages for the Red Book Fauna stamps. The copy I ordered from eBay was a vertical se-tenant. Almost all the pictures I see are for horizontal se-tenant. So, I made both pages. Print the one you need.

I overwrote the old file. All downloads can be found here:

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2000 Supplement Re-Release

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 1999 Supplement Re-Release

I redid the 1999 supplement after noticing some of the stamp boxes were too small to fit the stamp in the mount.

I also changed the order of the stamps on the pages to make them go in strict MICHEL catalog number, which made the supplement 2 pages longer.

Nothing else was changed. If you’re happy with what you have, just keep using it.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 1998 Supplement Reissue

Took a hard look at the 1998 Stamp Album Supplement and found some issues:

  1. Some of the stamp boxes were not the right size
  2. I completely missed 282C-285C, the Red Breasted Goose miniature sheet.

I have one cardinal rule when it comes to mounting stamps: never EVER break up a setenant or miniature sheet. The Red-Breasted Goose Miniature Sheet in longer than a US Letter piece of paper. So, there is no way to fit it in a piece of paper intact.

For this, and other stamp sheets larger than what can fit on a binder page, I purchased a 9×14 Itoya Art Portfolio and put those kinds of stamps in there. I then make a page with a full color scan of the stamp sheet, put it on the page, and make PDF form that has a blank box you can fill in where you are storing the sheet.

The sheet in this supplement looks like this:

The updated supplement is on Google Drive. I just overwrote the old file.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 1997 Supplement Re-Release

When I first began working on the Tryzub Ukrainian stamp album, I was trying to crank through supplements as quickly as possible. This caused me release supplements with best guesses to what the stamp box size should be.

The halfway through the process, I got a MICHEL license to use their catalog numbers, which made me have to redo a lot of old supplements very quickly.

In all that rushing, I never ordered stamps from 1997.

I corrected that 2 weeks ago, and I finally sat down to put stamps in mounts and get the mounts on pages. And I learned that the boxes on the pages were a hot mess. Some stamps fit inside the boxes, and others did not.

So I redid the whole supplement this afternoon. The only thing new is the size of the stamp boxes. MICHEL numbers and descriptions are the same. If you’re happy with the way things are mounted, then there is no reason to download this and remount.

I overwrote the original file on my Google Drive with the new one.
