    I could soon be receiving pictures of dicks, dorks and drugs on my international mail... hope no-one sends anything to manchester museum... (currently covering up mummified genitalia in case of offence).

    Pfennig Black

    Sounds like a nice idea...

    Unintended consequences..

    Here we go again.

    I foresee hordes of jackbooted philatelists invading Poland to sequester its valuable reserves of 3 zloty commemoratives.

    Pfennig Black / Aryan

    Surely its Pfennig Schwartz!

    RE: Pfennig Black / Aryan

    Schwarz to be more accurate still? Nice try though. However, as someone noted earlier, surely Pfennig Weiß would be more suitable. Perhaps even Pfennig Kaukasisch...?

    What a bloody good idea

    @ Andy Livingstone

    What do you want from Mr Samond in return?

    Remember, philately will get you nowhere!
