A - E - K - S - Overleaf - Deane etc. list for 1960s

[May 2014] The Deane etc. listing comprises my annotated Deane [1] list, combined with the later Cartier [3] list which is in the process of being annotated. From this will result additions to the wants list and as those are acquired, the display below will be filled.

The 1960s is where exploitation of stamp collectors began, a good early example being the Angolan set below. Then there were the stamps for the two Olympic Games, many featuring the ubiquitous discuss throwers (with their legs sometimes conveniently arranged to de-emphasise their prowess) or images of ancient Greek pottery. The deaths of Kennedy and Churchill also helped the growth of postally-pointless stamps and all these issues led to the revenue-raising Wallpaper Issues of many smaller, struggling countries.

At this point, a new rejection status, WP, will be introduced, signifying wallpaper.

A - E - K - S - Overleaf - Deane etc. list for 1960s

Notes

1. It remains embarrassingly difficult to find nudes on the coyly-conceived British stamps. The first nude is arguably the incidental detail on the 1840 Mulready, then the 1940s UPU issues that aren't really nudes and in 1995 The Kiss, but just a head shot. The oeuvre is scarcely improved by the 1967 commemoration of Lady Godiva's alleged naked ride through Coventry: hardly surprisingly there is no stamp, but an envelope with a special cancellation from Coventry Stamp Club. [Jul15] A couple of afterthoughts added on the 1990s.
