Buyers can now filter for stamp issuing year:

  • Pre- 1800's

I see SWA has disappeared,please bracket with namibia as you have done with rhodesia and zimbabwe.

I would like to see a seperate category for POSTAL HISTORY,

Also a seperate category for varieties,with sub category for covers,and sub category for stamps so the sellers can list the varieties of covers and stamps seperately

Perhaps a category for revenue stamps and cinderellas may also be considered,where sub categories would then be union sa,rsa and rest of world for ease of listing and search

Lastly i think thematic stamps are becoming extremely popular and deserve a seperate category,with sub categories not per country of issue but as groups,birds,wildlife ,reptiles,transport etc

please consider the above as i think this will improve the categories for sellers and buyers

Hello my fellow JUNIOR MEMBER (I see, you are still short of your 40 000 positive ratings).

 

Although I am not currently a seller on BOB, I fully agree with you, especially as far as the SWA section is concerned (I believe that the total catalogue value ratio of SWA agaiinst Namibia must be a few thousand to one)

 

. Keep well Neil.

Regards

Jacques
