Yeah, I can see that. And the stamp above - air service between India and UK - has the same number.
To prove further what an obsessive I am, I could also point out that in the description of the Mahatma Gandhi 10R stamp, "Brown" shouldn't be capitalized, if you want it to be consistent with 323b in the archaeological series. I apologize. I spent ten years searching out typos as part of a job with a university press, and I will never have a personality again: at least not one that anybody could tolerate or want to hang out with for more than a couple of minutes.
Beautiful stamps, and fascinating history. Now I'm gonna have to start collecting post-independence India!
Please do! We have some wonderful stamps! I'd be more than happy to send you some.
Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.
We no longer have any independent stationers here. WallyWorld and Target flog their house brands and the availability of Avery is a matter of luck. And I get depressed every time I go into Staples; every aisle has a poster or two saying, "Do your shopping at staples.com", the unwritten message being "so we can fire everybody in this store". At least they do have a decent repertoire of Avery binders. Their house brand is pretty weak, metaphorically and physically.
Someday I'll have to try those Memory Keepers that angore has mentioned.
We don't have a multitude of office supply places here where I'm at, but the few we have (Office Depot mostly) are stupidly lame. Everytime I go into one I look at the binders, hoping to find something useful, but I come away disappointed every time. Their selection of paper is limited as well. But you can get printer ink 3 times the normal price!
Yeah, I think I'm going to get one of those Memory Keepers too!. They're not cheap (at least I haven't seen one) but I think 1 or 2 will do.
In my area, Office Depot/Max has reduced the number of brands for products like binders. They carry a house brand which is on low price/quality side and little else for binders They have more online.
Staples (a little longer to get to) carries more and still stocks Avery binders that I also use but Staples is also trying to reduce in store options and wanting you to shop online. The question is just about shipping. During the holidays they had some good promotions for in store purchases.
Amazon still usually comes out of cheaper for me for most office supplies if ordering online when you include shipping expenses although I have tried to buy in store first. What makes amazon better is the search capability. It just seems easier to find what I want quicker.
I have gone back and forth and decided I did not like visible catalog numbers. After mounting they did not seem useful, I prefer having something that describes why it is different (denomination, color, other variety information). I do like the cat number under the stamps.
