doubt, the Spanish Dominion period is the hardest Philippine stamp
collection to assemble. The stamps are either very expensive or catalogued
very cheap but damn difficult to find.
Severino "Chi" Bajar's started to collect this period in the late 1980s.
The collection you are about to view
not complete, is certainly substantial. We hope you will appreciate the
ten years plus effort made by Dr. Bajar in putting up this collection.
While many have given up, Dr. Bajar has painstakingly adhered to the belief
that eventually this collection will be completed.
stamps are arranged in chronological order per Dr. Bajar's album pages.
The collection was scanned with stamps on Hawid mounts and album pages
placed inside protective sleeves. As expected, the images are not that
clear resulting from the two layers of protective transparent film. Perhaps
in the near future, Dr. Bajar, who is based in Masbate, will spend more
time in Manila and allow us to reproduce his collection to the highest
level of clarity.
Philippine Philatelist extend its deepest appreciation to Dr. Severino
"Chi" Bajar for accepting without hesitation our invitation to feature
his collection on this site. We hope that you will follow his example in
sharing to the world what you passionately collect.
