When I view a combination offer in detail in the Closing Seal section, the items are mixed together separately. I don't see what sorting or logic there could be in it...
Is it possible to sort the combined items in the overview by year?

Example for a combination offer with 26 Advent stamps (1958 and 1960 are listed somewhere at the back, the overview starts with 1969):



Actually, it doesn't hurt if it says which shop it's from , it's advertising from a good shop :)

Two days ago there was an interesting item in the program Scammers tackled (with Kees van der Spek) about books with false signatures by JR Rowling (Harry Potter). Maybe it can still be found somewhere.

In any case, be careful with signed Harry Potter books (especially on Ebay)! This actually applies to all signed books, but especially to the expensive ones, such as those by Stephen King.

See
1917, 1918 and 1919 State coat of arms (II)
Both in the past and now the rule in the manual reads as follows:
"...Year of issue [space] name of the Issue..."
"Year" once and not three times "Year".
Except for a super administrator who approved naturally his own change.
The exception confirms the rule...
Very promising!

I didn't see an advertisement in it, rather an enthusiastic collector trying to make a first post that way... Then I'm a softie lol

Don't lose any sleep over it, things just get very heated sometimes on the LD forum. Lately we have had more posts from new users who wanted to sell their inheritance or attic find here. And that is not allowed on the forum. There are rules that must be followed.
On the forum 'LastDodo site & app' there is a (sticky) thread with the regulations.

Via the General Collecting forum, in the Introduce yourself thread, you can introduce yourself as a new addition to LD (LastDodo).
On the same forum there is also a thread 'Lastdodo café', where you can be a little less serious.

If I then count to 10, swallow 5 times, and then click 'refresh', I usually get the page.
But if you are in a rush when changing/adjusting an aggregation (items from an issue group), you will get stomach upset after a few of those errors.
Especially because 'year' in the item is not clicable. Click on country each time (wait), then click on everything (wait), and then fill in FROM-TO, confirm and wait... The chance that a nginx will fly between them is 4 x greater with such a detour.

They were not translated, hence they were not visible.
Please report these kinds of things, nowadays we can adjust a lot of things ourselves, without the help of a programmer.
Also check the texts in the conditions, including the translations.

You could place them in a new country/area, but I don't think that's a good idea.
In contrast to the additional areas for stamps that have a different purpose (Jul stamps have a different purpose: collecting funds for a humane charity such as TB control, Illegal issues have a different purpose: deceiving collectors and taking money out of their pockets, Cinderellas have another purpose: to seek support for a 'good cause', which can be either financial or political).

They are stamps from the same country/area, with the same purpose, and fully compliant with UPU. You can perfectly frank foreign shipments in that country with it. However, you can only deposit it in a KEP office.
In other words, it is in no way 'city and regional mail'. There is little chance that you can send something abroad with stamps from a local postal service.

Expresse doesn't really seem applicable to me either. In my opinion, this refers to items that are issued for the accelerated sending of a message (for which you have to pay more).

It is understandable that KEP's stamps were given that usage type, because of the name of that (official) postal service. And because of the desire to be able to select them individually.
Now that we have a 'Publisher' field, I would be more inclined to make the distinction with that. But then you have to fill in the field for all stamps of that country, including for the 1st official postal service of the country.
Fortunately (depending on how you look at it) there aren't that many in the LD catalog for that country yet. It is still doable now. It will become hopeless in the foreseeable future.
Something for the administrator of Kyrgyzstan. In their absence, the super managers.
Or ... if you have ambition as a Chinese volunteer ...?

Perhaps it is best to first recut the field when making the prices visible on the .de and .com sites (after 12 years)?

Example 4
Common sense says: anyway #8720037 merge with #2166759 .
The newest item (the small series) only has 4 collectors, 2 of which also have the complete series. You could send the other two a message.

1959 Animals and 1960 Animals then (according to my interpretation of the new definition) also belong in the Issue group 1957 Animals .
I would maintain #2170227 as a separate series (for practical reasons), but #5525395 , #8723805 and #5525395 not (because not in shops and virtually no collectors), nor #2400339 .

Bee #2170227, the only question is what you enter as the year, because there are 6 stamps from 1959 and 1 from 1960. (See Details for the item.)

If you look closely at, for example, #7103263 , you will discover the entry 'Express Post'.

Kyrgyz Express Post is a courier service provided by Kyrgyz Post for domestic and international deliveries.

Kyrgyz Express Post LLC (KEP) has been operating on the postal market of Kyrgyzstan since March 16, 2012 under the unrestricted license no. 16-0028-КR granted on 19.08.16 by the State Communications Bureau of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, which provides a wide range of postal, financial and other services to both private individuals and legal entities.

By virtue of the decision of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Kyrgyz Republic of December 7, 2012, Kyrgyz Express Post LLC was granted the status of the second designated postal operator of Kyrgyzstan , which was further confirmed by Circular 83 of the Universal Postal Union International Bureau of 21 may 2013 .

Charles1971 I think your argument applies to all languages. In Dutch you can also frank with special stamps. Yet Franking Stamps is the common name. The current name was determined by a former German administrator.

A stamp can only be in one Series
In case of both Yvert and Michel series, first come first served?
Tolerate existing cases?

See:
Example 4
#2166759 (8 stamps - 1 series in Yvert, 2 series in Michel)
#8720037 (6 stamps - 1 series as included in Michel)
However, with a similar pattern, 15 stamps (if LD is complete, otherwise even more) were issued between 1957 and 1959.

"I sell an average of 1 order per week, so I have the opportunity to save costs (3km x 2) to collection point, to not send every week, but then most buyers will ask why it hasn't been sent yet or a € to be added"

lordernie I think that if you communicate it properly (in your shop), a serious collector/enthusiast wouldn't mind waiting a little longer for the order. For example, you could send twice a month on a fixed day.

The definition of Series is now included in the Stamp Handbook
You're a little fast. There are also people who have to work.
There are still a few things that I think should be different.
A Series is an item depicting the individual stamps from an issue......
An issue? What is an issue? I assume you mean issue group. I don't know what an issue means. Or do you mean: A Series is an item depicting the individual stamps that are commonly bought and sold as a whole unit.
If this is useful in practice, because certain stamps are often sold together, an issue can possibly consist of several series.
Issue is also stated here. Does this mean issue group? Or series? Or something else? It makes this sentence completely incomprehensible to me. No idea what it means. But I take it to mean something like:
If this is useful in practice, because certain stamps are often sold together, a series item can possibly consist of several (sub)series. A subseries is a combination of stamps issued on the same day.
If this is correct, I would put it third on the list:

  • A stamp can only be in one Series.
  • Most Series were issued on the same day.
  • If this is useful in practice, because certain stamps are often sold together, a series item can possibly consist of multiple series.

Can someone explain to me what exactly is meant by the Expresse usage type?

There are now 610 stamps listed here, of which these are already listed incorrectly, Kyrgyzstan74 . These are normal postage stamps.
