colour scans for Michel specialited GB catalogue
||at the recent combined meeting of the FgGB and GB&CWPS with several members of the GBPS in attendance (great to see you all again!) we had a German discussion with the editor of the German Michel catalogue. One detraction is that Michel still uses mostly black and white drawings of stamps from the 20's rather than colour scans of the real thing. We agreed with Sigward Pohl that the combined efforts would attempt to supply colour scans of the missing items for use in the next edition of this standard volume for Germany and the German speaking countries.
Basically almost all the victorian stamps are needed; it would be wuicker to list the ones available than the ones missing! Alsi EdVII 4 high values and Seahorse 2/6d., any telegraphs or postal fiscals.
If anyone could help us here we would be most appreciative and the items selected would be duly annotated in the next catalogue. 350 d.p.i. scans suffice. If anyone of you can help us here many thanks in advance. We are hoping to build up a similar relationship to Michel as we have via the GBPS and Mulready group to Hugh Jeffries.
You can forward scans to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks in advance and I will keep you posted

||sorry one should proof read before pressing the button! Of course specialized not specialited although that sounds quite good too!
