How to show single, plate block, sheet, same #

Recommended Posts

Guest Peter

Should I  create more than one record to show multiple varieties of catalog number. Example I have US number 1278 I have single mint, plate block, full sheet, and a used copy. Do I make 4 records, or can I make just one.

I make multiple records (add sub variety in the stamp data manager) for each copy and add letters after each Scott number to represent the variety, ex. fs full sheet, pb plate block. Then select the format in the general section of the program as it pertains to the specific copy. Works for me.

Hi you should create 4 separate items.  You can use the CLONE command to copy a stamp record.  Or you can use the APPLY button in the ADD STAMP dialog to add the same stamp 4 times.  I would not create 4 separate items using the STAMP DATA MANAGER as there should only be 1 entry for each SCOTT NUMBER.

Scott uses multiple entries for a single stamp. It uses additional letters to describe varieties such as in Telegraph stamps: 4T2a horizontal pair, 4T2b vertical pair, 4T2c imperforated pair. Sometimes they use letters to describe color variations, thick papers, etc. etc.
