    Yet another game!

    You can either give the definition to which we have to identify the philatelic term OR
    Give the term, to which we need to provide a definition.

    They don't need to be encyclopedic precise, just nail the key points (according to the asker) to be correct.

    Please state if you are giving the term or definition.

    Perhaps this quiz is for Canadians or North Americans as the terms may differ between English speaking Countries.

    Correct, Hochstrasse

    As for different terms, that's workaroundable. (yup. I just made that up). If I give a term a name, and someone says "here we call it _____", I'll take youir word they are the same. Also, variations can be found online etc.

    If coil pair with line, then it's a line pair.

    If it's (usually) an imperforate commemorative, then it'd be a gutter pair.

    The definition: it is a mark to show stamps have been used and not valid for postage anymore. :)

    The correct answer is "line pair". Sarah was correct.

    Techically Larry is correct, but the term I took the definition from was "line pair".
