To degum or not to degum by Tony Clayton[_2_]

Silver Marianne scan by Ralphael1
In this case it would be of no advantage to have a scanner..the Silver stamp does not scan. I have a scanner, never did master the infernal thing so it sits idly collecting dust. I haven't tried to install on new computer. Ralph

Art on stamps. by rodney
