Coded messages


Some time ago I bought a3kg box of Kiloware stamps from Nordfrim. These are stamps that are still on pieces of the original envelopes, sold in bulk, for the end user to soak off.  The stamps are great but what an unexpected bonus in the bits and pieces of paper left, with cancellation marks, printing and handwriting on them. Junk to most but hours of fun for the ephemera enthusiast and collagist in me.

  1. Oh this is brilliant (and I am inspired to copy this idea the next time I'm soaking cancelled stamps off of envelopes).
