SPECIAL NOTICES
In this Catalogue we present a listing of such adhesive stamps as are considered by us
have been issued for postal purposes. AVe have not included telegraph stamps, revenue
stamps or postal stationery other than those of the United States.
in order to facilitate identification we have adopted a style of listing of which one
example is given:
to

United States
230

A71

Ic

deep

blue

35

.04

The number (230) in the first column is the index or identification number; the letter and
number (A71) indicates the design and refers to the illustration having this (ATI) designation; next comes the denomination (Ic) followed by the color (deep blue); the prices are
in two columns at the right, the first (.35) being that of an uncanceled stamp and the last
of a canceled one.
When a perforation or watermark is mentioned, the description applies to all succeeding listings until a change is noted.
When a stamp is printed in black on colored paper, the color of the paper alone is
given in italics.
(.04)

ABBREVIATIONS
The most frequently used abbreviations are;

= Imperforate
= Perforated
= Watermarked
Wmkd.
Unwmkd. = Unwatermarked
A. Asia; AF. = Africa; C.A. = Central America; E. = Europe;
America; O. = Oceanica; S.A. = South America; W.I. = West Indies.

spots are not desired by advanced collectors and seldom bring more than a very small
fraction of the price of a fine specimen.
Standards of condition vary greatly in the stamps of different countries. Early United
States, Great Britain and Victoria stamps, for example, were poorly perforated and as a
rule heavily canceled and cannot be obtained in as fine condition as stamps from countries
where more care was taken in perforating and lighter cancellations applied.

PRICES
The prices appearing in this Catalogue were determined during May to August, 1939,
by careful study of wholesale and retail offerings of dealers throughout the world and a
thorough analysis of foreign catalogues, together with recommendations and information
submitted by many of the leading philatelic societies of the world. These and other factors
were considered in determining the figures which the editors consider represent the proper
normal price basis for a fine specimen when offered by an informed dealer to an informed
buyer.
Sales are frequently made at lower figures occasioned by individual bargaining,
changes in popularity, temporary over-supply, local custom, the "vest pocket dealer," or

FEATURES

KENI.MBKKING
In previous editions of the

Catalogue the numbering has been in numerical sequence


under each country, leaving a gap between the different groups, i.e., Semi-Postals, Air Post,
etc.. to allow for the addition of new issues.
This has been satisfactory until recent years
when these gaps have been rapidly closing up. It was inevitable that a new method of
numbering l>e adopted and. after a thorough study of the problem and careful consideration
of the many suggestions sent in by collectors, the following system has been Incorporated
in

this edition.

Stamps issued for regular postage are indicated by numbers only, without prefix
the same as heretofore with the exception of some re-arrangement necessary to
group stamps of a like design together.
.Mi other group.s are likewise numbered consecutively, starting with .\o. 1 but the
numeral carries a prefix letter denoting its classification. Thus, Semi-Postals start with Bl,
.\ir Posts with CI. while Semi-Postal Air Post stamps have the two-letter prefix CB, etc.
After studying the accompanying table a collector should soon be able to determine at a
glance into which cla.-sification a stamp falls by simply looking at the catalogue number.
The regular postal issues of each country are followed by the other groups in the
letters,

alphabetical order of the prefix letter or letters. No single country has all of the groups;
the majority have only a few.
The flexibility of the system is such, however, that new
groups can be added, if and as they appear, without disturbing the present listings.
The prefixes, in the alphabetical order of their use in the Catalogue, are as follows:

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS
has become increasingly evident to the publishers that collectors are interested in
of printing used to produce the stamps and with this in view such information
appears in part for the first time in this edition.
Because of the amount of research involved, only the British Colonies and approximately the first third of the Catalogue were
completed. It is intended that the balance will be included in the next edition.
It

the

method

Methods of printing, perforations, types of watermark, etc., when listed at the beginning of an issue, apply to the issues following until a change is shown. The only exceptions
are the surcharged and overprinted varieties.
In this case the information may be found by
referring to the original listing of the basic stamps.
Most of the tentative listings formerly located in the back of the Catalogue are now
mentioned under the country of origin. In no case will they be given recognition until it
has been satisfactorily established that they were issued primarily for postal purposes.
Errors formerly having major numbers have been given minor numbers subordinate
to the normal stamp.
The term "Surcharge" has been restricted to apply to only such an overprint as
alters the face value of the stamp to which it was applied.
Many other improvements are being planned for the 1941 and later editions.

ACK> OIVLEDGMEXTS

We wish to extend our sincere gratitude to the many friends who have aided us in
The co-operation
our task of making this Catalogue more nearly complete and accurate.
extended to us this year has been much greater than ever before and we are deeply appreciative.
We regret the impossibility of naming all who have aided by giving to us of
knowledge.
We must, however, mention the outstanding and invaluab'e aid extended again this
year by such organizations as the BUREAU ISSUES ASSOCIATION, the SOUVENIR ISSUES
ASSOCIATION, the various units of the AMERICAN PHILATELIC SOCIETY, and the cooperation now being given by the POLONUS PHILATELIC SOCIETY, the RUSSIAN
PHILATELIC SOCIETY ("ROSSICA") and others. .\lso to the G. and C. Merriam Company,
publishers of Webster's New International Dictionary for their generous assistance in all
matters of pronounciation, spelling and factual information.
To any and all who have helped or will help us toward our goal of perfection we

extend heartfelt thanks.

Batonne paper may be either wove or

The laid lines may form Reometrical figures,
such as squares, rectangles, diamonds, or may be wavy.
\NTien the lines form squares the paper is called "quadrille carri." a

When the

called granite paper or sicurian paper.
Some of the

As a protection against counterfeiting the paper may be colored

Such stamps are called imperforate or unperforated. As

stamps the design is first cut on a matrix or hub of soft
steel, which is then hardened and transferred by pressure
to either copper or steel plates. The expressions, engraved
in taille douce, line engraved and steel plate, all designate substantially the same processes for producing an
foration on the sides of a
top and bottom, and such

received and held in lines depressed below the surface of

method was used in making impressions from the early engraved woodblocks.
The term "engraved" however, as
used in the catalogue, refers to the former process. When
the ornamental work is engraved by a machine, it is called
engine turned or lathe tvork engraving. The common 3c

the exact reverse of engraved plate printing.
In this process the parts of the design which are
to show in color are left at the original level of the plate
and the spaces between are cut away. The ink is applied
to the raised lines on the plate and the pressure of printing
forces these lines more or less into the paper, impressing
the colored lines on the face of the stamp and slightly
raising them on the back of the stamp. In practice a large
number of electrotypes of the original are made and
assembled together into a plate with the requisite number of
designs for printing a sheet of stamps. Stamps printed by
this method show great viniformity, and the process is
cheaper than engraving and plate printing.

Rotary Press Printings (Intaglio). These are stamps
which have been printed on a rotary type press from
curved plates as compared to stamps printed from flat
plates on a flat bed press. Rotary press stamps are longer
or wider than the same stamps printed from flat plates.

process of reproduction, being introduced during the last
few years and rapidly finding favor among stamp-issuing
countries. Stamps of Great I'rltain are examples. Reproductions arc made by photographic process through a
screen, similar in effect to the half-tone illustrations used
in high-grade magazines, but differing in that the lines of
the screen are much thinner and appear in white instead
of black or opaque, thus making them practically invisible
to the eye.

Lithography or offset printing is a common process for


printing stamps. In this method the design is drawn by
hand or transferred from an original engraving to the
surface of a lithographic stone, or metal plate in greasy
ink.
The stone or plate is wet with an acid fluid which
causes it to repel the printing ink except on the greasy

face or depressed on the back, and there is usually a
duller appearance in the lithograph than in the engraving.
Passing the edge of the finger nail lightly over the lines
of the design will sometimes assist in distinguishing a
lithographed from an engraved stamp.
When a plate or die is worn, it is sometimes retouched
by hand and the worn lines deepened and strengthened.
The plate is then known as a re-engraved or retouched
plate.

1870 is the grill or embossing, which consisted of
small square pyramids in parallel rows impressed or

The object was to break the

would soak in and make washing for a second using

Peru has also used the same process on
many of her stamps.
On the stamps of the British Colonies the watermarks
Crown and C.C. and Crown and C...K. constantly recur
The letters C.C. stand for Crown Colony, and this water
mark was used down to about 1882. at which time it
was changed to C.A., which stands for Crown Agents

The Crown -Xgents are the persons
through whom stamps are supplied to the colonics.
The word Philately was suggested by Mons. Herpin
of Paris, and is derived from the Greek philos "fond
of" and atclia "exempt from tax."
As stamps denote
the prepayment of postage or tax, they are symbolic of
exemption from taxes, hence the word secondarily means
a fondness for stamps.

Antioquia.

(an'te.o'kya)

Originally a State, now a Departof the Republic of Colombia.


Until the revolution of 1885, the separate states making up the United
States of Colombia were sovereign

ment

governmenst

in their

own

right.

On

'August 4, 1886, the National Council of


Bogota, composed of two delegates
ifrom each state, adopted a new

constitution which

abolished the
sovereign rights of states, which then

became departments with governors


appointed by the President of the
Republic. The eight original states
represented at the Bogota Convention
retained some of their previous rights,
as management of their own finances,
and all issued postage stamps until
as late as the year 1904.
