First Issue Scores


At some time after completing a Display, I update a spreadsheet keeping track of entries by type. Some of the categories are grey areas (for example, where to count Confederate States; should Canada be a North American country or a British Colony?), but I am generally guided by the list on the back of older Gibbons catalogues as here.

I first showed this table at the end of the 1855-57 Display.

After updating the details from D8, I lapsed for a few months and then lost the original spreadsheet. After completing D11 and D12 I have rebuilt it.

I have, for the first time, included the component lists which I use to check the entries.

1865-67 Austria-Hungary not counted as a new issue, as both constituent entities have already been counted.
1886-89 Cochin China and A&T not counted: part of Indo-China
