    Fully agree with you.
    I would have been interesting to see such restoration, before and after. It may give many an insight of what type of restoration was necessary and methods applied.
    Makes one feel good about a collection when the effort employed, made them look good.

    Soaked in warm soapy water and pressed in a book. there. I sometimes use peroxide if really filthy. Thank you.

    The liight solution perocide takescare of oxidisation bringing out the colour.
    I would however not be too keen on soapy water though, just lukewarm water should do.
    Beware too of fugitive inks.
    Those not experienced should try cleaning on inexpensive stamps first.

    Thank you but I have been collecting since the 1970's on & off so I'm very versed on the subject.

    Låter bra så jag vet vad du ska se upp för dig. Vilka länder har ni beslutat att samla?

    That would be good advice for a novice but I been collecting for over 30 years so as long as the soap does not contain a chemical whitener you should be fine. As far as fugitive inks go I don't have much to worry about with regular issues only some Revenues, Thank you though.

    You are right of course but as novices also take interest, their's the experience to gain.
    I have no doubt you have gone through that learning curve.
     
  17. Främst engelska, Kanalöarna och samväldet som där värdet är. När jag på min horde vill jag ha mest nytta jag kan acrue, ja?

    Jag kanske inte möjligt förstår vad du menar med "där värdet är?"
    Engelska, Kanalöarna och Samväldet är en underbar plats att samla och om du behöver för att hitta värdet och / eller mer informaion på frimärken då skulle jag föreslå en Stanly Gibbions, Michael, eller min favorit, Scott katalogen. Men termen VÄRDE när de appliceras på frimärkssamling är väldigt subjektiv i bästa fall som  £ 100 stämpel och en £ 0,5 stämpeln är i detaljerna ibland inte ses med blotta ögat men man bara behöver oroa sig för sådant "nonsens" är din enda samlar som en investering (att bli rik)
    Om jag missförstod din kommentar ber jag om ursäkt ödmjukt Men om du menade det högre valör frimärken rg: $ 1 - $ 5 (eller vad ditt monatery system euro engelska pund etc. ..) det blir rätt?
    OK nu ha tha lång omständligt ... lo Jag kanske har lite av det saker som jag kunde hitta, skanna och visa dig och om du gillar det jag ska skicka dem till dig. Hör av dig om jag förstått dig rätt OK? Tack kompis!

    Basically he wants to collect "Mainly English, Channel Islands and the Commonwealth where the value is"
    My guess is he wants the higher denominations or maybe the classic sets correct? I have absolutely no earthly idea about W.W. (world wide) stamps so hopefully one (or many of you) from that part of the earth help him out more than I ?
