Privately-Produced Pages and Panels
Grant Berry, Jr. (cachet-maker) and Per-Andre Hoffman (the photographer of the Aurora Australis on one of the two International Polar Year stamps) worked together to create this autographed, privately-produced Commemorative Panel for the International Polar Year souvenir sheet. 2,500 panels were produced. and For further information, contact Grant Berry at GreatBerr@aol.com.
44 of the International Polar Year Panels had the 41-cent individual Aurora Australis stamp affixed and first day cancelled on October 1, 2007, creating a first-day-Commemorative-Panel.
Robert Ford Porter's Philatelic Pages were designed so that a block of stamps and a first day cover can be displayed in a balanced layout with some of the same elements as a Souvenir Page. These pages, which feature stamp specifications and a commentary on the stamp subject, also have the stamp affixed and canceled on the first day of issue with space for the block and first day cover to be mounted on the page. The Horace Moses stamp was issued on August 6, 1984 in Bloomington, IN, so Porter (living in Indianapolis) did a Philatelic Page to see how it would come out (that became PPP1, and Frank Laubach was PPP2). Porter says he only published pages for stamps that "strike his fancy", including designs having to do with pilots and airplanes, the original thirteen colonies, the Constitution, and other patriotic themes. On August 16, 2002, Porter, at age 75, issued his final pages for the two Love stamps, PPP99 and PPP100. All pages were autographed by Robert Ford Porter, and occasionally by other persons having something to do with the stamp being issued. With the exception of the first page which was 8.5x11 inches, all Porter Philatelic Pages are the same size as Souvenir Pages, 8x10.5 inches. Matching FDCs were available for most PPPs. For information on purchasing Porter Philatelic Pages, contact the ASPPP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; some stock is still available.
