The Specialized Catalogue for Neopost Webenabled Stamps, by Cerizet, is no more due to the Geocities shutdown. However, I did save hard copies of his writings from the website!

Weekly Question

Collectors often like to share their knowledge -- or show it off, as the case may be. In this area, I'll include a quiz question that has to do with my collection. E-mail me if you know the answer.

 
This week's question:  When did the 10-stamp sheet control numbers change?

Last week's question: What factors make covers franked with the 34c Neopost TM  stamp rare?
 
Last week's answer:
1) Limited Access - Kiosks were located in restricted areas and were impossible to access by stamp collectors.
2) Limited Supply - A very limited supply of sheets were being made available to stamp collectors.
3) Limited Information on the Stamp - Only a limited number of  stamp collectors knew about the stamps.  
4) Hoarding - Stamp collector available sheets were not being used due to its very  limited supply.
5) Uninformed Stamp Cover Collectors -  Stamp cover collectors were unaware that these stamp covers existed. Covers that were made by kiosk users were not being saved.
