The following course from Summer Seminar Online 2022 is now available on the C3a learning platform:
Breaking Up is Hard to Do: Stamp Separation & its Methods
Course Description: When the imperforate Penny Black was released in 1840 (as well as a number of subsequent issues all over the world), no one had given much thought as to how stamps could be separated for use. Now we have almost universal die-cut stamps, with nothing holding them together other than the backing paper. How did we get here and why? Don’t miss this glimpse into the history and methods of stamp separation, as well as a tour of related errors, freaks and oddities.
Course Instructor: Wayne Youngblood
