Experience from London 2022 stamps show added to Awards page
In February 2022 "Paleophilatelie" website was awarded a Vermeil medal
on competition of philatelic websites at London 2022 philatelic show.
The show has been organized by Stamp World Exhibitions Ltd. on behalf of the Association of British Philatelic Societies.
The exhibition was held under the patronaged of the Fédération Internationale de Philatélie
(FIP), who recognized it
as a Worldwide Exhibition and the recognition of the Federation of European Philatelic Associations
The show was planed for 2020 first, but postponed due to Covid.
Unfortunatelly, similar to all other stamps show where "Paleophilatelie" was participated,
no display were installed in the exhibition hall.
The websites were invisible for the public.
The only place were the websites were listed in the exhibition catalogue.
On February 24th, 2022 Russian army invaded
Ukraine territory and currently bombing peaceful cities and
killing civilians all over the territory of Ukraine.
Please think twice if you want to buy anything from Russia,
even some stamps or covers, and indirectly support their aggression against Ukraine, free and independent European country.
I'm, Michael Kogan admin and owner of this website, call all my visitors from around the world to boycott Russia -
don't give your money to the country to kill Ukrainian citizens and destroy Ukrainian cities. Boycott Russia - Save Ukraine !

There following galleries contain over 6.000 images
of various philatelic items related to Paleontology and Paleoanthropology:

commercially used covers and postcards.
Official stamps related
to Paleontology or Paleoanthropology:
dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, prehistoric plants,
fossils, paleontologists and paleoanthropoligists.
Other official stamps to consider:
fossil sites, Natural History Museums, contributors to Paleontology or Paleoanthropology.
Sierra Leone 1992 -the only, known to me on the moment,
commemorative postmark with dinosaur of Sierra Leone.
It was used on some FDCs in 1992.
Regular postmarks were used on all other, known to me, FDCs of Sierra Leone.
e.g. Two FDCs with the Sheet and Souvenir Sheet of the same set:
The FDC with the Sheet was canceled by regular postmark.
The FDC with the Souvenir Sheet was canceled with the commemorative postmark.
In September 2021 "Paleophilatelie" website was awarded by a GOLD Medal
on competition of philatelic websites at FILANANIAS 2021 in Brazil.
The jury feedback:
"This is simply one of the very best philatelic websites out there.
The statement on the site is "the most comprehensive catalog about Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Philately" and I believe this is quite correct.
The amount of information available seems almost limitless and the philatelic knowledge on show is of the highest level,
where each issue is studied in minute detail.
There seems to be no aspect of this theme that has been left unexplored.
I was particularity impressed with the section that talks about undesirable stamp issue from various African countries.
This is an area rarely mentioned in philately...
