Nauru Collection Page Scans
The Nauru set of stamps showing
the Freighter "Century" were initially printed from 1924 until
about 1936 using a paper and ink combination that produced a very flat
impression (as seen in the example above). Then they were printed from
1937 until about 1948 on paper that exhibits a shiny, glossy appearance.
So it is pretty easy to identify the two printings once you have a few
samples to compare.
The pages are from my collection, and are identified
by the Commonwealth, Gibbons, and Scott numbers in that order. 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.
