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.
