Technical Notes

March 17, 2020
Made changes to the way the site displays information on mobile devices. Previously, in mobile landscape mode, it would display 3 images on the first row followed by 1 image on the next row. Now it will display 3 images on every row. I also modified the menuing system in mobile mode to make it more user-friendly.

September 08, 2019
Redesigned the first pages of the 18¢ Flag Over Lighthouse, 20¢ Flag Over Supreme Court, 22¢ Flag Over Capitol, 25¢ Flag Over Yosemite, and 33¢ Flag Over City to include more variations listed in the Scott catalog such as imperforate pairs with narrow or wide tagging, tagging omitted, and imperforate between pairs.

August 27, 2019
All of the commemorative pages have been scanned in high-resolution and images of each stamp are in place. Next will be the definitive stamps.

August 22, 2019
I started the laborious process of re-scanning each page in 600 dpi high-resolution to create separate images of each stamp, writing HTML image maps for each page, and adding them to the site. The commemorative pages are being added first followed by definitives, back-of-book, and finally the plate number coils. This will add the ability to click on any stamp on a page and view a larger scan of the actual stamp. It will be an ongoing effort and will eventually include every stamp in my collection.
