Hi All,

have a small project I am working on & need some assistance with images.
The Belgian issue of 1915-1920 of King Albert, specifically Sc# 108-109, & 111-114 have 5 different types which Scott only footnotes but does not describe. I know what to look for, but only have one of each in my collection.
What I would like is if forum members would be willing to scan their copies (mint or used) at a minimum of 600 dpi or higher. My plan is create a document to describe the process of identifying the different types.
When completed , I will post it here (will be free for everyone) & I will also incorporate it into EzStamp.
Any images sent to me would be under the understanding that I may use them in EzStamp. These images MUST be ones that you have scanned.

Much appreciated. I will be at a show in a few weeks & will search dealers stock for these as well

Thanks to all who assist
Marios

The Michel also has 4 different illustrations, Scott Standard states that there are 4 different types.

Scott # 114 has this listed as red violet
while Michel has # 119 as purple & a second one as brown purple

The first two frames of my collection are online with the relevant page here. I only call out four different types, which matches the COB catalog. Unfortunately my scans are only 300 DPI, although you can feel free to use them if nothing else surfaces.

Hi Everyone,

I have completed my document on the 1915-1922 Belgium King Albert I varieties.
Thanks to all who helped with the scans.
The document is available here

http://www.ezstamp.com/ezstamp/QT/B...arieties.pdf

Will be updating this document in time as I find out more information about Type 1a

Enjoy

Marios

Marios, that is an excellent piece of work. Very informative and interesting.
May I make one small observation? The asterisk on the 5 cent type III should be on the 15 cent type I? The double asterisk is in the correct spot!

Hi Peter,

not sure I understand. Are you referring to the * at the end of the document where I state that the most valuable is the 15c Type III (as this is correct from the research I have done)
Or are you referring to the *1a reference . If so , are you saying the 1a variety belongs to the 15c & not the 5c.
Will have to check this
let me know & I will revise as need be
thanks
Marios

Hi Everyone,

just an update to this thread. After months of searching, I have found a copy of the Type Ia 5c issue which shows the '5' nearer to the top value tablet.
Described & illustrated in the updated document I posted previously

http://www.ezstamp.com/ezstamp/QT/B...arieties.pdf

Hope this helps someone out there

Marios

Just came across this thread. The Belgian "Officiele Belgische Postzegelcatalogus" shows five types for this issue. My copy of this is the 1995 edition. Type 5 is a variant of Type 1 for the 5c value only.

The description says: Zoals type 1, maar het horizontaal streepje van het cijfer 5 staat dichter bij de omlijsting en eindigt op gelijke afstand als de ronding van het cijfer 5. De letters c hebben aan hun bovenste uiteinde een klein vertikaal streepje.

Google translates this to: Such as type 1, but the horizontal line of the number "5" is closer to the frame and ends at the same distance as the roundness of the figure "5". The letters "c" have a small vertical line at their upper ends.

Aurora, if you are looking for an answer to your question please open a new thread. This thread is for a different plate number alltogether.
