Germany 1905-19, 2 mark without white dot over R by [email protected]

Catalogue spezilized of Israel, BALE by Droger Jean-Paul
Hello! Does anyone use this catalogue I bought one year ago by VERA (2010 edition)! I have a little problem to know wath currency is used with "values" that are given! Some times, for higher valued stamps, it is clearly printed: $ ** or tab ** $ and I think it uses the US $!

hinges by Pedro
Hello friends, I've read here, long ago about a brand of hinges that could be very easily removed without damaging the stamps, so they were considered the best type/brand. Anyone knows? I remember when I was a child, back in the 70s, being at the local stamp shop in my town of origin, in the...

Thanks to asdf by [email protected]
