Comparison of Hungarian Catalog Prices 2016-7 to 2018

This is a comparison of the pricing in the new 2018 Hungarian catalog (A magyar belyegek katalogusa) with the previous one from 2016.

The comparison is in the form of a multi-page Microsoft Excel™ spreadsheet which can be downloaded here by interested members.

The database gives the change in pricing by issue, year and decade.
The prices in Forint have been converted to US dollars.
The database also records valuations for the newly listed specialized watermark positions for the issues of 1898-1909.

This comparison was put together by George B. Shaw, one of our members.
Permission to use catalog numbers and pricing for this study has been given by
