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...

Aitutaki - Bud's Big Blue

Aitutaki in Big Blue
Bud's Big Blue
Bud's Observations
As recently as five years ago there were no Aitutaki stamps in my collection. The 1920-27 series is the more historically interesting and easier to find than the earlier stamps.

Census: 22 in BB spaces, no tip-ins, no supplement pages.

Jim's Observations
Clearly popular with New Zealand and Commonwealth collectors, the stamps are expensive compared say with Afghanistan BB stamps. Admittedly, the engraved series of 1920-27 are very attractive.

I have 9 stamps in my BB collection - a ways to go.
