Talk:International Postal Congress

From IBWiki

In some of my articles I referred the "Global Postal Union" thinking making later an article about it. Guess it will not be needed. Your IDF surely will be *here's* analogue to UPU at least in certain point. Being philately one of my interests (both *here* and *there*) I'm looking forward for some article about a postal union in IB.--Pedromoderno 00:59, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Hope you find this of some interest! I am working on the list of country codes, but won't be placing that here for a while yet. Since you're interested in Iraaq, I have retained the old "ISO" code of IQ for that country. I am deliberately NOT devising subnational post codes of any kind for countries other than the NAL (whose list of provincial codes I already had). I figure that since those codes are the purview of national postal services, other folks can devise those lists!
I've decided it is not a "Union". I have some more notes on the Congress, and will have to add them to article before long. Elemtilas 05:42, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Indeed this has interest. Few questions related with philately: Does IPC release some sort of international stamps catalogue? Or is it like *here*, where there are several stamp catalogues made by private publishers? Having LoN its own stamps, do its commissions also have their own? Or perhaps all commissions simply use general LoN stamps?--Pedromoderno 23:34, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
I think you'll find that Johann Staat's catalog(s) are pretty much the industry standard. There are others, of course, such as the one published by the Society of the Royal Post. Most such catalogs are generally limited to one country, or perhaps all Commonwealth entities. Staat's catalogs are pretty comprehensive for all world stamps. Of course, it is printed in several large volumes. I would imagine that the LoN issues commission specific commemoratives from time to time. Elemtilas 20:13, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Is country code S = Scotland or = Sweden? ;-) Kyrmse 17:21, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
