Whiling Away A Few Hours


It has been a busy couple of months, but I have found a little time in the schedule for stamping.

Buying a few bits here and there, sorting out the extras, scanning them and listing them on auction sites has taken a little of my time. I might mention this is another extension to the hobby. I quite enjoy it, It helps develop my own collection at a reasonable cost. 

Filling or should I say (trying to fill) customers wants lists has also wiled away a few hours. This is where sometimes I have to study in depth. It does me good as I re-learn lots of stuff that was pushed to the back of my dumpling. One instance there was one customer where had to supply some Machins with notched bars. During the research I found three different panes of 18p stamps with notched bar top left. (N1). 

These three panes actually created 16 specialist stamps in Deegam level 3. Twelve of them are what I would call individual key stamps with notched ,inset bars or short bars. I knew this already about these but the information was locked away in my head. It was somewhere between my last holiday and building a snowman for the kids. 

Don't you just love getting old?  😀
