Compared to the first edition, many new detailed information have found their way into the catalogue. The layout has also been adapted to the new flood of information.

  1. By the end of 2014, the 1st edition had 3,635 records. The scope has now expanded to 4,254 records, an increase of 17%.
  2. If in the 1st edition all imperforate stamps were shown as a separate record with their own picture, they are now integrated into the dataset of the perforatedstamp without a picture of their own.
  3. New in the catalogue is now the editing of the texts printed on stamps, block margins and sheet margins.
  4. The variationsand issue sheets have been separated from the stamp section of the catalogue. This practically means that there are now three parts of the catalogue: one for all stamps, blocks and miniature sheets, one for all variations and a separate one for the issue sheets. At the same time, these three datasets are offered in two sortings: one chronologically and the other version geographically (by country). A catalogue sorting according to stamp types, as they have still given in the 1st edition, is no longer offered.
  1. Further details for all stamps are now available for their (a) stamp size, (b) perforation, (c) names of designers / graphic artists, publishers and printers, (d) WNSnumber, (e) number of copies issued, (f) airmail
  2. For each stamp it is indicated if it is listed on Michel, Scott and / or Yvert.
  3. In contrast to the first edition, in which value classes were specified (from-to), exchange values ​​(orientation values) were now assigned to the stamps.
  4. New is a themerating, in which all stamps are evaluated in terms of their collective worth and are ranked on a scale of up to 100%.
  5. For all stamps (except the variations) information is given on their general market availability.
  6. To better distinguish all stamps among each other within the catalogue, a separate catalogue referencenumber has been introduced.
  7. As far as known, each stamp will be assigned the number of existing FDCs, color proofs, ministerial blocks and artist’s blocks.
  8. Due to the multitude of classical paintings and other well-known art objects on stamps, a separate evaluation on this topic has been prepared.
  9. Of course, errors of the first edition have been eliminated.
