Hi folks,

I recently unearthed my stamp collection from about 20 years ago. I thought I had disposed of it! There isn't much of worth in there, but I am interested in George V stamps from Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika. I also like the George V stamps from GB.

Mainly I need a good forum, and a reasonable magazine, to help me research what I have. If my collection has any worth at all, I guess I will sell!

Incidentally, I bought a USB mouse, but it still hasn't cured my frenetic-flea jumping cursor!

Many thanks in anticipation.

Stanley Gibbons was always THE reference source before the internet. I expect they are still out there.

Cheers Bob,

Yes I have found plenty of info on Gibbons. My small collection is a bit specialised I reckon, so I hoped to find a decent forum that might be more applicable!

I'll keep searching !

Thanks again

I cleared out my "collection" a while back. Selling individual stamps would have been a pain, so I used Grosvenor Auctions. Prices were reasonable, and it was a pain-free process. https://www.grosvenorauctions.com/ I *think* I sent them photos in the first instance, and they specified which stamps were worthwhile putting up for auction.

I note they have an East Africa auction coming up in November!

Ah Well! l fear I was a 'Just William' fan! Never got waylaid by Jennings. Did I miss anything John? :mrgreen:

Maybe it's not too late to catch back on this series?

Somewhat off-topic now, but I was a big Just WIlliam fan too. Still am, in fact. The R4 serialisations read by Martin Jarvis were superb. I never cease to be amazed at how a childless woman could get inside the head of a juvenile male. Jennings was boarding school, I believe. Slightly removed from my experience.

I would probably enjoy Jennings. I used to be a great fan of the 'Red Circle School' stories in the Hotspur, during the nineteen-fifties. The main character, I seem to recall, was the school captain, A.P.E. Carew!

Days of innocence and not an idea of what was to come!
