I was recently delighted to receive a beautiful collection of stamps and a catalogue from Morningmoss, a land I as yet know little about.

Morningmoss stamps, and the Postage Due set.



Some of the stamps show some famous Post Offices of the country,while others show the Postmaster-General, evidently a very competent individual.  Several are for Military Post, so it is nice that the Army is encouraged to be literate.

The collection arrived in a nice cover, and included a colour Catalogue for the Galeron colony Sides ov de North.  This has been published by a local stamp firm, Tanley & Ibbons, who have been in the philatelic game for many eons, and have a good reputation.  But it is for catalogue publishing they are most well-known.


The Tanley & Ibbons Galeron stamp catalogue, a full-colour book.



Thank you for these, Les.

I am impressed by the ornate figures of value on the Morningmoss "Postage Due" set!  This is from a font I have not been able to identify.  I will inquire of the designer.




Morningmoss: just in case you wondered where it is.
