    I had a huge lot come my way recently and while sorting through it I found a few a few items that I really love! The few World Wide topics that I do collect was all there and these pieces fit comfortably. I just fell in love with these and thought I'd scan them for you.

    Jay ....I noticed that the King Edward V11 stamp is slightly angled to the left ,I am currently reading a stamp book (Error world by Simon Garfield) that said that during victorian/edwardian times stamps were angled left/right /upside down etc. to denote coded messages between sender and recipient that could not be written on a postcard that everyone could read.Have you heard of this?

    Yes I have. Look up "The language of stamps" on google and you'll find a lot on the topic. Hope that helps some.

    I have heard of it back when I was young, but never user it. I do wonder what I could have said to people?

    Hard to say! I think that these postcards do not represent the Language of stamps but rather a hastily applied stamp and zipped off to the box. Still interesting though.

    Jay, this card was mailed from Teheran, Persia or what is now Iran. I cannot find any mention of the meaning of "Shimran Baghi Fardousie". I wonder if it is a French transliteration of a place name in Iran...Anyone else know? Anyone speak Farsi?

    Well Baghi is a village in the North Khorasan Province, Iran and Firdousie (Ferdowsi orig. Abu al-Qasim Mansur) might have something to do with were he lived or was born?
