Season's Greetings for the End of 2016 and the New Year 2017

I wish all my readers an enjoyable End of Year and good health and good collecting in 2017.

I am very grateful to readers who have contributed Comments and Scans this year. On several occasions, when these contributions are grouped together we end up with what is really a new understanding of some difficult topic.  To give just one example, have a look at the Blog for 8 October 2016 on the Russian Refugee Post.

I will have lots of material on offer in the January sale at and I will have a stand at London Stampex in February (show dates 15 - 18 February).

Moscow City Police 1861 issue, two values hinged mint with full original gum, pencilled acquistion notes of Agathon Faberge for 1906 and 1907. Not quite as rare as Russia #1 in mint condition but still pretty scarce.The 10 kopek is from an early printing with clear ornaments and background lines.
