Terminologies used in Stamp Collecting ? Perfins and Overprints


As you read on you will get introduced to many new things and facts related to stamps and stamp collection. The information may also influence you to resort to certain type of stamp collection based on the design or printed matter over the stamps, etc.

The markings or any letters printed over the stamps suggest certain related meanings. For example, the tutorial web site of the British Philatelic Society says that the letters ?OHMS? printed over the stamps relates to ?On His Majesty?s Service?. Further, if the letters are punched over the stamps in the form of holes or perforations they are called as ?Perfins? which means ?PERforated InitialS?. Perfins are made to discourage any misuse of stamps by the post office staff for their own use.

So, when you make up your mind to go for the stamp collection hobby, you may now decide whether to go for all perfins category or for any specific markings over the stamps or for other choices. Such type of specific collection will turn out to be a better recreation at a later date when you sit and go through your collections in a leisurely manner.
