Because of this, you make use of many specialized reference sources that will identify varieties of shade, paper, gum, perforation and design that are not listed, or even acknowledged by most standard catalogues. This has often meant that you are forced to buy larger lots of stamps and go through them to have any hope of finding that elusive variety that you have been looking for. As a result of doing this for years you wind up with a lot of duplicate stamps that you don't need.
