    Hello Makanudo, one of the reasons why I do not use Cat'codes none match and few are complete.
    Your stamps (from a set of seven - 1982-11-13) are listed in these catalogues as:

    Mi:NI 2333, Sn:NI C1032, Yt:NI PA1005 and
    Mi:NI 2332, Sn:NI C1031, Yt:NI PA1004

    Regards, James.

    Hello James:

    For some of us neophytes... what does MI, SN, and YT stand for? I know they are catalogues, but give us a clue!

    James,I do not really understand your remarks.
    Maybe my English is not good enough.
    What do you mean with "Cat`codes".
    What is meant with "none match and few are complete" ?

    The colnect catalogue is difficult to use,at least
    as to my taste.Do you have any idea what is
    meant by "score: accuracy x %" ?
    To me a catalogue without valuations is missing
    possibly the most important information.

    Stampworld seems to be much easiar to use.
    But,without being able to prove it,I doubt the given
    numbers of stamps listed.I have not found yet a stamp listed in stampworld,what is not listed in Michel.However they have given cat.nos. to stamps
    what differ in colour,what are listed in Michel as
    a,b,c etc. subnumbers.
    One of my collections is India.As I have some knowledge about indian stamps,I compared Stampworld with Michel.In general Michel lists
    more varieties of the pre-independence stamps.
    In the later issues there is not much difference.
    Except that is of the regular issues of 1965 onwards.Nearly all of them are watermarked.Many
    exist with two different wmk.Stampworld lists them
    all with: "wmk. none".
    They also don´t list the different printing methods,
    different perforations and watermark positions,what are listed and,if not listed,at least mentioned in Michel.
    With the valuations stampworld is no more actual
    than Michel is.
    I do not have the latest Michel for India,mine is the
    2003 edition,but stampworld gives no better valuations,than my "antique" Michel.
    Most striking: the se-tenant issues of 1981 and 1982.Listed at about € 1.- or € 2.- (I do not recall
    the exact prices right now) they are listed by the
    trade in the range of € 50.- to € 100.- each.
    So it is better not to exchange on the base of the
    Stampworld prices.
