Illustrated Advertising Covers - A Worldwide Survey

Advertising covers provide a wonderful snapshot of life at the time of their creation. History and practical art at the same time.

Like many of my exhibits, this survey is intended to give collectors a taste of a collecting area that they may not have considered before. (by Roy Lingen - roy)

A look at philatelic tributes to scouting from around the world, highlighting the issues from the countries of CEPT/PostEurop in 2007 as the Europa theme that year was ‘The Centenary of Scouting”.

Great Britain Penny Reds 1841-1880 a short tutorial

This series of stamps, in use from 1841 to about 1880 causes a lot of headaches, and misidentifications. Hopefully, this tutorial will allow you to identify them with ease.

Mail to Famous People

A collection dedicated to covers mailed to famous people. Ideally, they will be names that anybody with an interest in history (or that lived through it) will recognize!

Currently only 5 pages mounted, but the last page shows a list of names ready to be mounted when I can find the time, as well as an offer to exchange for similar items. (by Roy Lingen - roy)

Just Because It's Pretty

An eclectic collection of philatelic items that have nothing in common, each chosen just because it's pretty (or pretty unusual). (by Roy Lingen - roy)

A Taste of the Classics - The First 30 Years 1840-1870

An introduction and a brief worldwide survey of the first 30 years of stamps - a period when the idea of prepaying for a letter and dropping it into a post box was as novel as the Internet is today. An idea which touched off an explosion in communication, just like today. (by Roy Lingen - roy)

Mail to Famous People : Hollywood

Part of a collection of "Mail to Famous People", these pages feature covers addressed to Hollywood stars (commonly called "Hollywood Fan Mail"). Hopefully some of your favourites will be included and you may experience some pleasant nostalgia. (by Roy Lingen - roy)

The Guadalcanal Campaign of World War II: 7 August 1942 – 9 February 1943

I showed this exhibit at Westpex 2018, the annual show of the Westfield Stamp Club in Westfield, New Jersey. The theme of our show that year was the 75th anniversary of the Guadalcanal Campaign and Victory and John Basilone. John Basilone, a local hero who was raised in the central town of Raritan, New Jersey, was the only enlisted marine to be awarded both the Medal of Honor (for his actions on Guadalcanal) and the Navy Cross (for his actions on Iwo Jima where he was killed).

A grisly but fascinating look at airmail crash covers. When things go horribly wrong! This is just the beginnings of an exhibit. The author would be happy to hear from anyone who can offer additions. (by Roy Lingen - roy)

Odd Shaped Stamps

David started collecting "odd" shaped stamps around the same time he joined Stamporama, in Oct.1999. At that time he thought a triangular stamp was an odd shape. In his words, "Boy, did I have a lot to learn!". He lives in the Great White North (Canada) and his philatelic friends began to call him "The Odd Canuck"! One page also shows his topical interests of Buses, Motorcycles and Domestic Cats. David is hoping that this display of his interests will encourage other Stamporama members to contact him for trading. (by David Greg - october)
