    The top-values of 100 and 200 Piasters were revalued in 1915.
    I was glad to find the set with the two revalued stamps,because the
    original 200 Piasters would be out of my reach,moneywise.
    Like the Cape-Triangles and the early issues of Mauritius,the 200 Pi.
    was one of the "dream-stamps" of my early collectors life.

    During our time in Paraguay I had to end all stamp-exchange and
    buying activities,due to the rampant mail-theft in that country.
    After having ourselves (re)established in Germany,I was going to
    look for the german stamps,issued in the meanwhile.Looking
    for a collection was not successful,because what was on offer
    had two types of cancellations only: First-Day Cancels and
    c.t.o.-cancellations by the Philatelique Sales Agency in Weiden.
    I do not mind such cancels,but nothing else but these...
    Thats to many of the same !
    By the way in the years missing,roughly 2005 - today,more than
    1000 stamps were issued in Germany.
    What remembers very much of the "other german state" the
    DDR (GDR),what was a prolific stamp producer as well.
    I always did like DDR stamps,not all of them of course.When looking
    around for the 2005-today GFR stamps,I came across an offer for a
    near-complete DDR collection.Apart from the service-stamps just
    missing three stamps,I would not like to buy in a collection anyway,
    because they near always bear a forged cancellation.
    I could not resist and bought it.
    I received two Schaubeck-Binders.Schaubeck was the Album maker
    of the DDR.It still exists,now re-privatized.
    I will leave the collection intact,as it is.It is a kind of materialized
    history lesson of our nation.
    Here a set,celebrating the "German-Chinese friendship":

    Nice margins on that stamp, Richard.

    On a first look one might think it is from the 1992 re-issue,
    with such big margins.
    But different perforation and the 1892... a real nice one !

    During the last few weeks I have put my "holdings" of Fauna/Flora stamps
    into "collections".I had bought ten sixty-pages stockbooks,what are now filled to about 90%.With a estimated 25 stamps per page,the total amounts to around 13.000 stamps.In addition there are the souvenir sheets and sheetlets,less than I had thought,around 3-400.
    Not included are the stamps of the about twenty countries,I collect
    by country.
    Now I can become more familiar with my Fauna/Flora thematics.
    Here a stamp from a definitve set,issued Jan.2nd,1975:
    AA Zam 147.jpg
    I like that stamp,because it reminds me of a TV-programm,where they
    showed a hotel-camp,somewhere in East-Africa,what is regularly crossed
    through by a group of elephants.Hotel-guests and the animals respect
    each other and there were never ever any problems.

    I see lots of good stuff here! I am still learning and searching through totes and boxes. I often wonder if I will ever get them all organized. HAHAHA...... Anyway, here are a couple I have found so far that I really like...... 834 and 205.

    Here is another one that I like. Out of all of the 65's I have found so far, this one stands out the most. From what I am seeing, it seems to be a unique color. Anyone have any input about it? I added a second pic of it with other 65's to show the contrast in color. 65 (2).jpg 65 (4).jpg

    Hi Baker J,
    I believe that interesting shade you have scanned is either the brown red or the pale brown red variety. I actually haven't seen enough of either to be definitive one way or another. If I had to guess I would choose the former. Good show!
