A is for Aden and Z is for Zanzabar

A is for Aden and Z is for Zanzibar... Now what is between? For the world wide classical era philatelist and stamp collector, a country specific philatelic survey is offered by the blog author, Jim Jackson, with two albums: Big Blue, aka Scott International Part 1 (checklists available), and Deep Blue, aka William Steiner's Stamp Album Web PDF pages. In addition, "Bud" offers commentary and a look at his completely filled Big Blue. Interested? So into the Blues...

Aguera - Bud's Big Blue

Aguera in Big Blue
Bud's Big Blue
Bud's Observations
There’s not much to say about Aguera stamps. The likeness of King Alfonso XII is repeated many times in BB’s Spanish colonial selections. Interesting non-philatelic cancels are difficult to find and expensive. See also stamps of Rio de Oro and Spanish Sahara.

Census: seven in BB spaces, two tip-ins, no supplements.

Jim's Observations
Spanish colony stamps tend to be sparse in general feeder albums, at least in the United States. I find them much "rarer" than what their modest CV would suggest. I have four of the seven spaces filled.
