New commemorative post mark is coming soon in Germany:

1. 17.06.2013 "[URL="http://www.sonderstempel.info/stempel00.php?WERT=s170613a&BACK1=dsuche2.htm&BACK2=INPUT&BACK3=2013&BACK4=05&BACK5=stempel06.phtml&BACK6=01&BACK7=2013&BACK8=12&BACK9=31]Discovery of first dinosaur in Germany[/url]"

It's strange that kind of Tyrannosaur is shown on the post mark when the first Dinosaur found in Germany is Plateosaurus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plateosaurus

Just seen this stamp with shifted perforation on Delcampe. It's supposed to be a stamp from set of 6 values "Giant reptiles of Caribbean" issued in Cuba on April 3, this year.
Two questions:
1. Is it real or Cinderella stamp ?
a. If real, what is Michel or Scott Number ?
b. In case there was some release or announcement note of the set, please send it to me.

Just on the next day after official issue, I received addressed FDC from Royal Mail. It's arrived inside of another cover - perhaps for better protection.
Now puzzled if the FDC acn be count as real circukated one ? The sort-machine sign (orange dotted line) is stay on the wrapper cover rather than FDC itself.




The FDC is also include an inside page with some brief description about dinosaurs depicted on the stamps

Looking for some information about prehistoric animals ("dinosaurs") stamps of Iraq. This stamps are issued in 2010, but is a very chaotic mixture of clumsily drawn species from very different periods and locations. Some of the stamps seems to be based on Burian and Zallinger images and represent very outdated scientific reconstruction of the creatures depicted on stamps. Just keen to know what was the motivation of Post of Iraq to issue this stamps ? Are any significant fossil found made in the country in the last time ? The design of this stamps seems to be very unusual for Iraq.

Nice Iraq stamps - my sister (Navy) was in the area and was able to get a sheet of 24 for me. Can't fit in my album so I put it in a frame on my wall. AFAIK, there have been no fossil finds in Iraq. The closest country is Egypt. My website ( http://www.dinosaurs-on-stamps.info ) has the names. Thanks again.

There are some fossil found in Iraq too, but not necessarly related to prehistoric animals depicted on these stamps. e.g. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/...3281277.html

In 1999 Post Authority of Japan issued a set of two stamps depicted two Dinosaurs: Iguanodon (left) Dromaeosaurus (right). Stamps are printed in one MS 4x5 Similar stamp printed in booklet too 2x5 - the booklet stamps don't have perforation by sides



Yesterday I came accross a Japanish web site about Geology, Minerals and to some extend about Paleontology too: http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~ma-sa/ With a help of Google Translate I was able to navigate through. The site mention a Dinosaaur of Japan stamps wich are reprinted in 2006 - The only differences are: Name of Issuing Authority/Print Company on the bottom side of a MS; MS layout 2x5 stamps rather than 4x5.



Anybody from Japan or other county who is able to help to receive the following dinosaur stamps from 1999 and 2006 ? I need either full Mini Sheets or at least the bottom side of it as on the image above.
