    Hello,
    my problem is that I don't know how to identify stamps and find them again with Michel if there is nothing on it that I could enter as a search term. Can someone help me?

    Hello,

    I think now that you use the online michel catalog, right.

    It's best to first take a look at what it says on the stamp, i.e. gdr, saar, federal republic. Germany, etc.
    In the search you have the possibility to enter this information of the stamp to search for it. In the end there is a large number of search results ... if you have somehow come close to a brand you can gradually use more fine options, the year, etc.

    But there is never a 100% accuracy, it may well be that what is not in the index

    if everything doesn't help, you can scan the desired brand here and maybe get information from the users, that's what the forum is here for after all.

    sometimes the michel "book" is more convenient than some search engines.

    Ok, thanks, that helped me at first, but for example with Makre:
    Austria, Michel No. 1-5 is no value of the brand. Does anyone have an explanation why?

  • Austria and Lombardy & Ventetia 1. Emission is my specialty. With these brands it is extremely important to put a 300 dpi scan of the front and back online here. You can completely forget the information from the Michel to determine these stamps ... the ratings are also only a modest consensus, which does not include the stamps in particular. Some relevant details (also interesting in terms of value) cannot be determined with an image for these brands (paper, watermarks) ... in special cases, however, I can give you appropriate tips.
