Welcome

Here you will find images of all US postage stamps up to 1959. Along with updated market prices. Included are US revenues, officials, Hawaii, Confederate Stamps and more back of the book.

I track prices at major US New York auction houses. These include Matthew Bennett, Shreves, Cherrystone and Robert Seigel. Occasionally I will include a US sale from Harmers or other international auction houses. Where possible both with ebay and auction houses I will indicate the grade the stamp was awarded by a recognized an expertiser such as the PSE.

Prices are updated twice yearly. Some issues, such as the 1869 Pictorial Inverts have a record of each sale. Other issues have specialized articles attached to them.

This US stamps site is offered free, therefore there is no commercial bias in the opinions offered. There is a section on ebay stamp dealers which has been put together based on the comments I have recieved from you, the viewer.

This site is provided free and it costs me a whole bunch of $$. As I am retired with no income this is super hard on me. Any donations towards the cost, so I can keep it going or as a thank you for all the work I have put into this for you guys would be wonderful. I shall write to each contributor a thank you note!

Great Britain Stamps

Welcome.

In this site I have attempted to do something, not hitherto done. A complete pictorial guide to the stamps of Great Britain.

For the QV Jubilee Issues, KEVII and KGV the stamps will be broken down to their specialized number. That means that order for say KEVII ½d will be M1, M2, M3 and M4 etc.

Where possible I have used my own certified material as a reference, however in many instances it will take a lot of searching to find the prime example of a particular stamp. As it is, the images I have represent the best I have found in the last five years.

Every other day a new page will be added, eventualy covering 1840 through to 1936.
