questions for you guys!

i was just wondering what made you guys start to collect stamps in the first place?

me: My dad has always been collecting stamps and so, as a little girl, i was so fascinated by stamps and i loved to look in my dad HUGE box of excess stamps. at some point i decided to collect stamps myself and i've really learned a lot from it: i learned geography, history and also about culture from collecting stamps.
then when i was 16 i took a break from collecting and by summer 2010 i decided to start again. i cut down on what countries and themes to collect and i've bought new albums for some of the collections. I've also bought a Michel catalogue for my German collection (which i am pretty excited about). I hope to get my collection of German stamps to be as big as the collections of Polish and Hungarian stamps (these two collections my mom gave me).

7:01 pm
i would like to swap stamps...
hi people! it's not like there's much going on here... but let's try and get something happening here.

I have a box with stamps i don't collect. I'd like to swap some of these to some that i actually do collect. I have stamps from the Sovjetunion, Australia, lots and lots of countries in Africa, Italy, Serbia and so on. I have stamps from bascially everywhere. But i do not have stamps from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Faeroes, Iceland, Greenland.

What i'm looking for in return is: Germany (mainly after 1945 but i can use everything), Poland (after 1980), Hungary (after 1980), Korea (both north and south) and Egypt. I'm also collecting cartoons, Beatles and dinosaurs.

anybody interested?

New stamps sets added to my Preciousowl Etsy shop!
I guess I'm the only person who posts on here and maybe the only person who even reads this so techinically I guess I'm just typing to myself. Anyway, I was hoping to meet other stamps collectors/traders on LJ but I guess it's just not in the stars. :(

Selling Indonesian Christmas Looney Tunes Stamps With Folder

Hi, I'm selling a complete set of Christmas Looney Tunes stamps. The stamps are completed with folder with Christmas tree and Looney Tunes characters drawing on it.

The folder contains 4 sheets of stamps, and each sheet has 6 stamps (so 24 in total). The pictures are all different with each other. The characters wearing their cute Christmas outfits. The stamps are published in 2007, and still in perfect conditions. They're new (unused) because my dad bought them for collection purpose. So they're perfect for Christmas gift or your own personal collection ^^

hello all :)
I recently took up collecting stamps again. i collected when i was a child but gave it up when i was about 14 and i haven't been able to take it up again until now. i also recently got my mom's collections so i am collecting a lot of countries and topics. :) on top of this i am also always looking for stamps for my dad who is also collecting. it's really been a family-thing to collect stamps LOL.

I joined this group because I'd like to get some help and advice for getting started with all this collecting again and i hope to do some swaps as well, so i can fill out some holes in my collections :)

what i am collecting of countries:
Korea (both north and south. i don't have so many stamps from here, but i hope to get many, especially from the south as this part means the most to me)

Germany (again... all of Germany but i'm thinking about "cutting it" down to germany from 1945 and up)

Egypt (i have only got about 20 or 30 stamps from Egypt :S)

Greenland (I also don't have that many stamps from here)

Poland (one of the collections from my mom. i especially need stamps from 1980 and up)

Hungary (also a collection from my mom. and again i especially need stamps from 1980 and up)

Finland (this is a totally new area for me and i'm only interested in stamps from 1984 and up to begin with)

What topics i'm collecting:
The Beatles

For my dad i'm looking for: 

so if any of you have excess stamps from these categories and would like to swap, please let me know :) I have several stamps that i am willing to swap :)

Stolen Stamps
x-posted to [info]everythingstamp and [info]stampcollectors

My father, an avid philatelist, has just been burgled - the bastards have taken an entire safe!  As well as passports, wills and other important documents, they've lost three valuable stamp albums.  I've been given the following descriptions from my father of some of the prominent missing items/the main contents of some of the albums:
  • £5 orange. Central cancellation date stamp over Queen Victoria's face. Dated possibly 1899, 30 or 31 December.  Very fine used
  • album of covers - the most unusual item has 2x1 shilling stamps, sent to Buenos Aires
  • Other main album - starting with about 20 penny blacks, followed by a dozen tuppeny blues without lines, then more tuppeny blues with lines, then on to other types of stamp
  • Embossed stamps - sixpence, tenpence and shilling values.  Some square cut and others cut to shape.
I'd really appreciate it if you could keep your eyes open - I'll be scanning e-bay regularly myself, but don't really have a clue about the other on-line communities where an unscrupulous seller might try and shift them. Any advice would be gratefully received.  And should you see any suspicious job lots or individual items on the list matching the description, please get in touch.

Thanks so much.

Getting Value for Antique Stamps
Newbie question: 

My girlfriend and I cleaned out her long-late grandfather's storage unit last weekend. In a safe, we found an envelope filled with "day of issue" stamps. Who knew he was a collector? We have yet to look up the values of these stamps (about a dozen or so), but my question is this: 

Where and how would someone get a decent value and/or price for antique stamps in today's marketplace?

Low-brow community for stamp pictures

I've been collecting stamps for twenty years, and finally decided to make a community about looking at stamps, and showing off stamps. You're invited!


Not a very creative name, I know. But I hope you'll stop in and have a look. The purpose is to exhibit pictures of your stamps, but pictures of currency or envelopes or other stuff is welcome, not to mention entries without pictures at all.

Come in! The more, the merrier!

Bit of help . . .
'Kay. The situation stands thus:

I got a bunch of stamps from a collector who no longer wanted his world collection, because he wants to focus on Canada/the Netherlands. Most of these are antique. So. I check out the envelope labeled "Iran," and I find stamps that say "Postes Persanes." Many of these have lions on them, as though this were a national symbol. Others have men wearing hats that look - I swear I'm not being funny - like that helmet Marvin the Martian wore on Looney Tunes. Most have no dates, although some are from the early part of the 20th century for sure.

Do I have Persian stamps here? Because I know the early, early ones (1902, 1911, 1907) are Persian, but I don't know if "Persanes" would indicate Persian, or Iranian in some other language.
