Country pages are under review this year.
More notes and images added on A-I pages already.
Review of J pages will be completed soon.
Current year updated, stamps and postmarks of this year added there.
Unfortunately, not much issued this year to date.
Sometimes in Spring 2010, I found my old stamps album and decided to back to stamps collecting after over 20 years of pause.
The only thematical stamp catalog that was available at the time was 8 years old the Prehistoric Fauna of Dompil.
Few internet websites that I found provided very basic information about „Paleo“ stamps, therefore I created my own online catalog.
10 years ago, in October 2010, Paleophilatelie.eu website is born.
The very first and the only page of this website, available in 2010, was a huge table created in MS-Word,
with names of countries on one side and years number an another, that provided an overview about all kind of available stamps.
Later on the
second table with Michel Numbers was added.
It was kind of catalog with links to some stamp images.
Most of the images were in low resolution, downloaded from the Internet.
Later on, I replaced the images with scans of stamps purchased by me or sent to me by a friends.
As it is boring to me just to fill out albums with stamps and covers, I start to look for some information about it and created some
stamps description pages.
The evolution of Paleophilatelie.eu website can be seen in the
Internet Archive of Wayback Machine ,
who made many of backups (134 backup available at the end of 2020) since June 2011.
By this opportunity I like to thank to everybody who helped me to make it.
Everybody who sent me some scans of philatelic items which I missed or had it in poor quality,
everybody who helped me to find an information I was looking for,
everybody who helped me with translation of text written on the foreign languages or corrected my English,
everybody who reported me about some issues of the website and helped me to improve it:
T H A N K Y O U A L L !
Really appreciate your help. Together we made the most comprehensive resource about Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Philately in the world,
which won several medals on prestige national and international philatelic shows in the Electronic-Literature category.
Sincerely yours, Michael Kogan, Admin of Paleophilatelie.eu website
