Watermark detectors by [email protected]
I would like to study the watermarks of a lot of stamps. Is there a "non-liquid" watermark detector I can use? I have seen other collectors at stamp shows squeeze stamps in little boxes to study watermarks. Which are the best? and where can I purchase one? Thank you in advance. Michael Titford.
