Collections: World: By Country  
I am constantly buying large and small collections and often have a variety of U.S. and Worldwide collections, lots, and accumulations available. If you are considering getting into a new area and would like a "starter collection" (whether small or large), let me know about your interest. Also, if you are seeking used binders or used empty albums to match what you currently have, again, let me know. Here are a few samples of collections. The listings below are included by happenstance. If you are seeking a particular country or type of material, please let me know. Payment plans are available. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, shipping cost is additional for items in the Specials Collections listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

Collections and lots are not normally sent on approval. If you have questions about an item, please inquire before ordering. Special return and refund limitations typically apply to such items. Please see the "Order Info" page for details.

Each item is one of a kind; orders will be filled in order of receipt. Payment by MasterCard or Visa suggested, but I will hold items for 10 days pending receipt of check if you prefer.

Switzerland Collection in Scott Specialty Album 1862-1973: Mounted collection of about 700 different, mint and used, on Scott Specialty pages to 1968 (the stamps to 1972 are on other pages)in green 1-inch, 2-post Scott Specialty binder with slightly worn dust jacket. It appears that some stamps have been removed in the past, but this is much better than a typical "collection balance". Useful range of all periods, including many semi-postals and even a few of the earliest UN Geneva issues. Not all the 19th century are in their correct spaces, but they have been counted for what they really are. There are some very minor faults in the early issues and some of the later mint stamps are lightly stuck, but can be lifted with care. The overwhelming majority are F-VF or better with much VF. Scott 2017 retail value is over $800 (plus a few not counted). Overall this is a clean, neat collection will suited to continuation and expansion.
