Help to identify stamps
Encircled German area in Latvia at the end of World War
Welcome to my site
Stamp from the start
idea of this site is to show my stamp collection at the
same time as it
as a dictionary for other stamp collectors.
site is based on the history of each single country from 1850 to the
year 2000. If exciting changes have happened since 2000, then
until today. Each country is divided into a number of periods and each period is
presented by 3 stamps, which represent the period and the country as
well as possible. The division into periods is subjective, but follows
as far as possible political changes and/or change of the appearance of
stamps or change of currency.
Stamps are included in those countries, where
they have been in use, not the country of publication.
The most countries are shown on two pages. The first page follows the
capital and the second page follows provinces, where they use other
stamps than in the capital.
I have not included the rest of Europe and
America, therefore I am looking for one or two cooperation partners, who are
experts on these two areas and who would like to make something similar.
If you are english-speaking, I will change my part into English.
This is not Red Cross, but
one of the first stamps of Tonga
