Our Collection

The Catalog

We have now merged all known collections into one catalog of banana labels. Magnificent collections from our collectors Becky, Elvis, Erich, Gerri, John, Josef, Leee, Luis, Michael, Nico, Pablo, Patricio, Peter and many, many others. Here you will find now in total 31,000 different labels starting in 1913 with the AFC Tiko Kamerun.

The Catalog is really NOT for free

NOT for free

I wrote articles that explains what it means to run this catalog: Many hundreds of labels are added each month and we have to pay for the IT infrastructure. So I asked to help in the cost and to help to keep the catalog up to date, This was now many month ago. Some of you do really help and I like to thank.

New Banana Labels

New and beautiful banana stickers are added. Do you have the same label or a variant? Please help to get the catalog complete and add what you have found:

Are These Banana Labels?

We think, each label should be verified by at least two or three collectors. Help to identify misprints, other fruit labels and fakes. Please verify 5 labels per visit:

This is no banana label
✓✓ I doubt it is a banana label (misprint or fruit label)
✓✓✓ I have no further information about this label
✓✓✓✓ I believe it is a banana label
✓✓✓✓✓   Yes (100% certain)

Thank you Ferrin to add all the labels today, But it is clear that some rework is needed. For example this one is already in the catalog when the spelling error (Bananes instead of Banes) is eliminated.

Last time it took me 8 hours to correct all the labels someone has added to the catalog and I'm geting tired to do it. Probably I have to do it in the end, but we have to find a solution that is also OK for me. And it is not about the changes that Ferrin has done (I'm very happy that he is doing it), but it is about the workload at all. Bear in mind we have about 2600 new labels this year.

And to repeat it: It is not about money I speak. But I do not like to do it all the work almost alone for free. Maybe I will ask the collectos to send me 50 to 500 labels to do all the work? The catalog is NOT for free, because it needs a lot of work to keep it clean and tidy.

So what do you suggest how we want to organize it?

P.S: In the past I have blocked some collectors in changing data at the catalog because of to much time I have to spend for the rework. I guess you agree that is also not the best solution for our project.
