Scotex (nice!) and a persistent cold (not nice!) kept me from updating for a while but I'm on a roll again now, so let's go back one more time to the 1923 issues for Queen Wilhelmina's Silver Jubilee.
I just received two cinderella based on the design for the Netherlands Indies silver jubilee stamps. They are printed in photogravure by the "Rotogravure Mij." te Leiden, Holland.
I suppose they are like courtesy stamps, just to show off the company's printing abilities. Apparently they can be found both perf and imperf, but I only have perforated copies. And, just to compare, here's the real thing.
Now do you understand why I prefer recess-printed stamps anytime?!
