new series ...







the series has a very small perforation, and gold stars ...  salon 2012 was perhaps the source.

I also note that 2 unofficial MS appeared from local stamp fairs ...  these were commissioned and not sold by la poste.

la poste ...

a new "letter verte" series was announced, and is still available ... otherwise little new on subject of phosphor varieties ... the old 215 press was retired - source of many vars ...

the FRA-VAR link, offers a bulletin board on france vars ...   login ...

2011 salon MS


by design this is perhaps the finest of MS to date ...

laposte is soldout , so obvious popularity.

no phosphor anomolies have been reported

2011 50g - perf anomolie

this is caused by bent pin at top of row 9 in the sheet...

2011 CD updates ...




the tables reflect registered CD in my study ... relative to the die-cut or perforation varieties that exist...actual sample numbers increase by 4x in many cases ... before discovering the phosphor anomolies, this makes tracing single beaujard difficult ...    the rate changes are appended - with 2011issues reported.  production of new 2011.7 series began in april - several CDs show dates earlier than 2011.7.1 ...

the goal of my reference collection, is to identify the source for single beaujard items ... and show phosphors for each... the task has become more involved than I originally thought. 3 matrices if matched will confirm a position.

MXV design matrix
MXP perforation matrix or MXD diecut matrix
MXU uv matrix
