These Russian dummy stamps are included in my recent online PDF publication all about the dummy stamps of the press manufacturer WIFAG.

I invite you to go to http://www.stampprinters.info/WIFAG.pdf for details of the tiger item (see in particular pages 8 and 24).

Incidentally, the printing date of 30 May 1960 on your sheet is previously unrecorded by me.

Many thanks for the information.

Currently I have been unable to get your PDF to load?

BTW. I was only guessing that the date may be coded as 30V 60. It may be some other information.

Bas,

I have re-tested (nothing gets uploaded without first testing) the link to my PDF , including clicking directly on the URL included in this thread. It works instantly for me on two different computers. Do persevere as it is worth seeing what I record.

The 30 V 60 string of letters and numbers was always the standard WIFAG method of denoting the printing date.

Bas,

Have never seen before the SCP Stamp Expo sheet that you illustrate. I have a couple of others, though.

Wow this is real good stuff Glenn. I liked it so much that I just re read all 30 pages.
I wish there was more available online about what goes into
the actual designing, engraving and printing of stamps.

Many thanks.

Hi Glenn

Thanks for the SCP cinderellas. I haven't come across those before. Do you have spares at all?

BTW. I still have a problem with the PDF. However, I managed to get some info off the site directly here, although the images are small.

Hi Glenn.

Success - I downloaded the PDF file to my desktop, and all good now.

Amazing information, and the wealth of additional info on your site is incredible. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Lithograving and Bas, may I first thank you both for the kind words re the WIFAG document (glad you managed to open it Bas). As with most of our philatelic endeavours, it was a labour of love and it's always nice to know when efforts are appreciated.

By 1995, Southern Colour Print had a miniature sheet and three loose dummy stamps on the theme of local flora at its disposal for promo purposes.

I was at the Singapore 95 stamp show and can confirm that SCP was not in attendance with a stand. However, they were in attendance to meet key existing clients and to look for business among the postal administrations who did have stands, presumably meeting in bars and restaurants as is not uncommon at such events.

Good fortune (right stand, right time, right cheeky!) saw me being presented with a Singapore 95 folder containing the four items mounted using the gum on the reverse of the items. I also subsequently requested unmounted singles, which they kindly supplied by post. All items are illustrated below.

While scanning these items for depiction here, I noted for the first time that all three loose stamps have cut top and bottom edges, with more normal torn vertical edges to the perforations. This leads me to believe that they may have come from horizontal coils. Sadly, it will be impossible to prove now..... unless anyone has se-tenant strips, or maybe the holy grail of a coil leader?

The dummy stamps were designed by Patricia Altman and printed by 300-screen lithography.

I have no other SCP items, nor am I aware of others, but I would welcome scans if anyone can add to the dummy stamp output of this New Zealand printer, please.

I have now found my actual SCP Tiger MS, so attach better scans of it.

Glenn.
Great info and scans - thanks again. That was a very lucky catch - I have not seen any of those shown. If something else crops up I will inform you.

BTW. If you need a better scan of the 1997 SCP. do let me know.
Regards
