I've only just ordered these Riverboat Post stamps so I can't specifically comment on the discrepancies but it does put me in mind of the Great Explorers series which actually turned out rather muddy and less colourful than advertised except for the sports which were printed separately. To me this demonstrated the danger of not having the sport on the main sheet. There will always be discrepancies between different printings of the same stamp.

On the question of colour stamps, I would make the following comments. Although full colour British stamps have only been around for about 50 years, full colour poster stamps have been around for at least 100 years. This takes us back to the Ewardian era and that, of course, followed on from the Victorian era. In any case, I don't see that there is anything wrong with colour Discworld stamps as there have been several examples over the years.

Some time ago we were tantalised with the surprising revelation that some of the Discworld stamps exist with more than one sport. At that time no more information was given and I'm not aware that anyone found any. Indeed, where would you begin to look?

Now that one of them has been revealed in all its glory, the Green Susan Sto Helit, I wonder if the others should also be revealed to us. My feeling is that they should be but what do other Discworld stamp collectors think?

My feeling is that it is not up to the collectors to put pressure on anyone to divulge any more information than they feel fit to do, when it suits them.

I know there are still a lot of Discworld Stamps collectors on this forum so I wondered if any are Facebook members and are aware of the community page I have just found on the Google search I have set up.

It is:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Discworld-Stamps/809424215750892?fref=ts  or just search Facebook for 'Discworld Stamps' and it is the only page you will linked to.

There are only a dozen or so members so far (not me, I don't have the time for Facebook) but I am sure there will be plenty of others once the word has been spread around.

Are many members here avid Facebook users?

Do you think we should also have a Facebook page for this forum?
