Burma Collection Page Scans

The Burma King George VI era set of stamps were printed from 1938 until about 1954. There are numerous sets based on what you might to be valid sets. Some of the sets were issued by the Japanese who occupied Burma during World War II. There are also sets that were issued after the British left in 1949. In addition to the postage sets, there are Official sets. So you can decide what makes sense to collect.

The pages are from my collection, and are identified by the Commonwealth until they stopped listing the sets, Gibbons (which requires the use of two catalogues) and Scott numbers in that order. There are some additional stamps included. These tend to be color shades or minor flaws I noticed. Unfortunately, I left spaces for a number of flaws (which are numerous) but was unable to find many of them. So there are a few empty spaces. But you should note that all the basic stamps in each set are included. I did not find any collectable color shades, probably because most sets were in use for only a couple of years.

The page images were scanned in a larger size and at a higher resolution so you can more easily see the details used in viewing them. Feel free to select the page and let it download to your screen and save it to your hard drive for viewing. If you are using a PC, selecting the page will typically open it in Microsoft Photo Viewer (or whatever you are using as your default). From there you can enlarge the size for more close-up viewing. If you are using a phone - go find a PC or a Mac. The images are 1200 pixels wide and you will go mad trying to view them on your phone.

Please be patient if it takes a few minutes for each page to load.
