For all members who look in but don't always log in...

Sheets of the 2015 and 2016 Forum Anniversary stamps are now ready for sale in the Members' Area of the Forum.

These stamps are sold to help contribute to the cost of annual registration, domain name and license costs, and maintenance costs of the forum.  Your support is most welcome! 

The stamps are printed on an authentic gummed stamp paper and have been perforated by hand on a rare Victorian treadle perforator with a traditional imperial size perforation size and gauge.  There are only a very limited number available this year, so be quick.


I began this forum as a place to discuss and share ALL cinderella stamps. It is my first forum and is not perfect BUT I will endeavour to make it the best available.

Any positive help appreciated!

I will be putting some special stamps from both the 2015 and 2016 anniversary issues on eBay to help raise funds for the running costs of the forum.

These are (with the winners' permission) only otherwise to be found on the winners' special sheets - pairs of variants with standard stamps; inverted pairs; and one of each of the very special 'second variant' stamps produced only for the winners sheets. And three of each of the whole winners' sheets, which will be sold in one listing to the three highest bidders, using the 'Second Offer' system.

What I need to know is...  to make the auctions as fair as possible, would you like me to put them on sale for 7 or 10 days; to finish on a Saturday or a Sunday; and at what time - late or early evening?  

I will try to accommodate the choices of everyone likely to bid who responds - either here or via PM if they prefer.

It is currently my intention - unless I hear otherwise - to start the auctions on Wednesday, for 10 days, starting at 9pm GMT.

Here is the link for the 'special' items, otherwise available only to winners of the stamp design competition:


There are 12 items, starting from £1.50 to £5.50.  Something for everyone, without breaking the bank.

Please support your forum  Thumbs Up

I couldn't stay away - but I will be posting much less this time so as not to offend those with delicate sensibilities :-)

As ever, I'd say buy the stamps because you like them, no other reason necessary.

Presumably, as so many people here voted for these designs originally, these stamps should prove popular - but so few sheets have been sold so far that I am beginning to wonder whether these will eb the most collectable yet of all our anniversary stamps...

The sheets are great and well worth £4.50.

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to Colin for not giving up on finding the gummed paper  Thumbs Up

Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
