The CSC has a publications page. My articles on Gerry's stamps were in Vol 57 No 3, Vol 57 No 4, and Vol 58 No1

I hope to post up some stamp pictures soon, some of which may be new to you and others.

Just wondering if its too late to add on to this article?

Firstly amazing collection and thanks for the image uploads Jesper it was exactly what i was looking for - as i was looking to mount them in an album the obvious question was what spaces did i need to leave, i.e. what exists, your listing gives me a pretty good idea.

Can i ask is the numbering you use just yours based on the items in your collection or if there a reference somewhere, possibly by Gerald King on the items produced, or what i am really trying to get at is how complete the index (your collection is)  Smile

I've noted the various sizes which is slightly frustrating when trying to arrange on symmetrically on a page but apart from a couple of designs there is only a couple of different sizes per design.

I purchased the below recently on ebay which is the first i've seen as a sort of 'mini sheet' item, it looks like this accounts for the 'small' format designs.. just debating whether i add this as is as a mini sheet reference or break it up and mount separately - do you know if this is scarce in mini sheet form, assume you have seen before?

mini sheet

My second question is any of your material for sale?

My third question is are you able to do the same for the British Commonwealth?

I am primarily a Malta collector and initially started collecting the Malta issues but looking to expand but again would like an idea of what has been produced.

Many thanks,
Neil

It's never too late to add to any article on the Forum. And preferable to starting a second thread.

hi Neil

You ask about a reference.  You’ll be delighted to know that Gerald produced three catalogues (all A5).  They are

Elizatoria Great Britain. 161 stamps listed. 

Elizatoria Part 2.  Postage stamps of the new British Empire. Don’t know how many listed. Just 3 from Malta. 

Elizatoria. Postage stamps of the New British Empire. 12 Maltese stamps listed. 

Being typical Gerry King creations the catalogues are not exhaustive.  He would change the colours of some stamps but not change the catalogue. So you can never be sure that your collection is complete. Goodness knows where you can get copies of the catalogues from. 

The part sheet is, I believe, just that. Not a miniature sheet just a part of a sheet. So the individual stamps can be bought if you can find them. I’d not break up the block you have, it’s a good find I think. 

Cheers, Keith

Thanks Keith.
Yes i appreciate due to what they are you can't be 100% sure of everything produced ** but those catalogues seem the ones i need to look for and the GB numbers tie with Jesper references.

Whilst communicating with a Gerald 'intermediary' re what Malta examples existed i asked in general about a certain set and if/how watermarks applied and i got offered a set in blocks of 4 identical to my query so i suspect there 'may'?.. be some made to order items, which is sad as the allure to the new modern re productions (where you can expect 'anything') is these were older original designs which could be indexed.

Attached the samples i feel may have been made to order.. unless anyone has seen else where? 

Malta Blocks 4

Thanks again.
