OXFORD PS COMPETITION 2018 – JUDGE’S COMMENTS

GENERAL

Visiting Judge : Tony Stanford RPSl, TVPF

11 entries including 3 novice class entries.

1. TRADITIONAL

1. GB – 9th PUC Issues. Some very fine & scarce material but layout a bit crowded at times. Last page untidy. Include booklet panes. Marks : 85 – 1st in Class

2. POSTAL HISTORY

1. Brit POs in Cartagena. Super entry. Add bibliography & your published article reference.

Marks : 80 – 1st in Class

2. Ethiopia – Censored Mail. Put intro on 1st page; raise title and include censorship detail. Add scans of markings on reverse. Marks : 79 – 2nd in Class.

3. THEMATIC

1. Spirit of St Louis. Nice plan well developed & telling the story. Split sets according to plan.

2. Rowland Hill. Nice plan but stamps do not always correspond. Better to split sets according to subject.

Marks : 74 – 2nd in Class.

6. NOVICE CLASS ( THEMATIC )

1. Fishes. An attractive entry better arranged by types of fish rather than by stamps.

Marks : 71 – 1st in Class ).
