 . . . for goodness sake you guys, MAN UP. You exhibit a weakness that could in the wrong hands be your downfall. You are buying your way to a collection rather than collecting in the purest sense.
 
Oh! Damnit. Just weakened as well. See you all in Stamp Heaven.

If these came along on all my mail and all I had to do was soak them off I'd be happy. This is the next best thing to pure collecting ... once you lot put yours spares up for trading on the Trading thread. Now DO IT!

Now I am wondering where I got the information regarding smaller versions of the 6175 stamps. They did pop out in two versions. The ealy versions were (sorry Colin) of a poorer print quality, but made up for that by being cut from the sheets with deckle cut scissors, each value with a different pattern. The later versions (were they extras in a bonus brown envelope for another issue?) looked more professional quality and were conventionally perfed. The designs for these had been reworked from the prototypes. But all of mine are 37 x 43mm too.
So has anybody got smaller versions of these, or were these a figment of my imagination?
It's taken a while but here is a scan of the set of four deckle-cut stamps in the £6175 series that I received on an envelope from Colin in either March or May 2009. They have been franked with the Laernu frank. However, they seem to be the same size as all the other perforated versions of the £6175 stamps that I have, that is 37mm x 43mm, and I can't find any amongst those I have that are either smaller or larger than this format.

Has anyone else noticed the connection between the 6175 stamps set to a set of Bad stamps released elsewhere?   Wink

I am almost happy that those Deckle cut 6175 stamps match mine "perforation" wise. If they all had different patterns on the same value would they be different stamps?

 . . . yes, I had a Bad Blintz 50 bizot stamp in my last pack from Colin with 6175 perfed into the stamp.
 
It will be going up into my swaps when I have finished the list - probably early next week.
