This is something of a departure from the normal listings. In Journal v13n1, Tim Balm (FICC#91) published a long piece about the first occurrence of every Scott stamp type and I (webadmin, Nick Blackburn FICC#181) have approached the subject from a different angle, using the lists provided Mackay (JM1) and Wood (KW1) and posted here.
Some of these innovations have been mentioned on the detail pages, for example Victoria's first Registration stamp and Late Fee stamp and Italy's first airmail, first pneumatic post stamp and others.
The intention is (gradually and eventually) to gather them all on this page. More on stamp types here.
