Welcome to the world of stamp collection.
Collecting stamps is truly a wonderful past time that involves hours of relaxing moments looking at artful pieces of history. Enjoy numerous hours of filling out albums with different stamp designs, categorizing them if not by era, by the design or by sizes.
Did you know that stamp collecting as a hobby started in the mid 1800’s, shortly after the first stamps were issued by Great Britain, France and Germany? The hobby gained in popularity as more and more nations began issuing their own stamps. Stamp collecting became a global hobby by the late 1800’s and continues up until this day.
Stamp collecting has evolved over the years from the early days of general disregard for quality and condition and periodic rampant forgeries to today’s high tech world demanding top quality stamps with all sorts of technical features to ensure that they are genuine.
