to Victor for assembling all this nice material on SNA ! Pierre.
looks good, but I think we need to expand and have a table of
to Victor for the initiative. Fabulous website. Didier.
by the coming conversion from national currencies to Euro, I would
suggest that SNA-currency, at least on joint issues, is named
"ChF". This could be understood either as
"Chips del Fennec" or Swiss Francs on the joint issues ;-)
are doing a wonderful job on the web site. Blair.
I had written xyz with
questions about SNA and fennecs and he referred me to your
wonderful site. So I just wanted to compliment you on your website
and your continuing efforts. How can I get a passport or
permanent citizenship? L.C.
Just managed to put aside enough time to pay a long visit to your
super Website, at last! Having viewed about half of the sections,
I congratulate you on a very impressive effort! The Fennecs look
as smart as I remember them, and the life story is superb! Keep up
the good work, and the search for the rare, elusive missing
Invisible Holograph Stamp Hoard! D.F.
I found your nice page by chance searching
for fennec stamp info. I was excited to find not only worldwide
fennec stamp collection but also funny SNA fennec stamps! I have a
fennec fox named Koeda, which means twiggy in Japanese and I've
just made a web page to share info with my fennec friends (fennec
owners in Japan and US).

Hi Victor -
Though I would take a second and drop you a line to say hello and
let you know how much I enjoy keeping up with your holy wars on
the spammers and, of course, the SNAPO news. I have, as you know,
shared much of your work with our little club here ... but your
best web site, The Spanish North Africa site, I have selfishly
keep to myself. I did, after all, advise all of them to surf the
net (especially the stamp newsgroup sites) to keep up with the
good things in life. If they haven't followed that advice - well
- something about dragging a SNA camel to water but not being able
to make them drink.
I do want to point out one oversight with the SNAPO system. In
the past they have used good judgment and turned a handsome
profit by emulating western commercial models, especially those of
the USPS. I am afraid however that lately someone in the business
office has dropped the ball. I say this because the latest
convention of the USPS for making a buck off the stamp collector
has been totally ignored by the SNAPO boys. Perhaps it's
not too late - here's the deal. You cut back the number of new
stamps put out each year by, say 15% or so. Then you farm out
production of each of these new stamps to four or five different
printers knowing well that no two
companies can print the same stamp exactly alike and (SURPRISE
SURPRISE) you now have five varieties of each stamp to sell to the
collectors. But wait - there's more! How about a non-denominated
and a denominated version of each stamp ?? How about a
self-adhesive and a lick-and-stick version of each version and of
course we need a 100 stamp roll, a 1000 stamp roll, and a 3000
stamp roll of each, all with different numbers. That should hold
us over until the next postage increase next year.
Well, enough of this for now. Seriously, I do want to thank you
for encouraging me to turn in our little newsletter for the ...
Newsletter Competitions last year. I just found out this month
that we won a Vermeil. Not too shabby for a little club like we
have here in ... Anyhow, you (your kind words) was one of the
ones who brought us to the dance and we had a ball. Thank you!
Please continue to send us by e-mail
your comments and let us know your wishes.
Just don't forget: we don't
sell SNA stamps!
