Collections: World: Topical  
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.

Elvis Presley 25th Anniversary Edition Souvenir Sheets: Two 2002 Elvis Presley 25th Anniversary Edition souvenir sheets of 9: Antigua #2584 $1 and Maldive Islands #2643 5R., OG, NH VF. Attractive and a highly popular topic!


Millennium Topical Covers Collection: Group of 20 covers for Millennium stamps issued in 1999 for the upcoming Year 2000. In crystal-clear 2-high (special 3-hole punched) cover pages (these pages can also be cut up for use independent cover holders). Includes info card for each country/issue.


United States State Birds and Flowers Commemorative Panels Collection: Scott #1953-2002, 1982 20c State Birds and Flowers, complete set mounted on 50 VF large commemorative panels in handsome green leatherette binder in nice, protective plastic sleeves. Each illustrated panel has enlarged picture of bird and flower, all original artwork by artist Richard Amundsen, plus descriptive text for each. A handsome enhancement of an already attractive and popular topical issue. This price is a fraction of the original subscription cost! The panels are also suitable for framing and other displays -- they are a great way to introduce the public to stamp collecting.


1984 Olympic Games Commemorative Panels Collection: Large volume of 87 different commemorative panels honoring the 1984 Olympic Games, in a handsome dark blue leatherette binder in nice, protective plastic sleeves. Each panel has a large color photo of an Olympic event or athletes competing, plus a Mint VF set of stamps issued by different countries honoring the Games. Many of the stamp designs show the same event as pictured on that panel. A fabulous tribute to the Olympic Games and an impressive presentation of an ever-enduring sports topical. This price is a fraction of the original subscription cost and appears to be significantly below the value of the mint sets included. The panels are also suitable for framing and other displays -- they are a great way to introduce the public to stamp collecting.


U.S. The Presidential First Day Cover Collection (1986 Presidents Issue): The complete set of 36 FDCs of the 1986 Presidential Issue (Scott 2216a-2219i) on cacheted (IPM) unaddressed FDCs. Neatly presented, one per page, with extensive write-ups about each president. Very attractive, interesting, historical, and educational. Presented in a handsome blue binder with slip case and gold decoration. Would interest everybody from stamp collectors to history buffs to political watchers. Offered at a small fraction of the original cost.


Dogs Topical Collection -- Great For Dog Lovers : This is an unmounted collection / accumulation of approximately mostly-different 250 worldwide stamps and souvenir sheets picturing DOGS, plus there are many more stamps representing the balance of sets where only one value features a dog. There are also more than 100 covers, mostly cacheted first day covers from many different countries. Mostly 1970s-1980s (and earlier), the stamps are mostly NH in new issue envelopes or on dealers cards, virtually all VF. There is an enormous range of breeds and dog subjects, ranging from show dogs and pets to working dogs such as disability assistance dogs and Laika (the first dog in space). The collector had a special interest in huskies, thus there are many Arctic-theme items picturing dog sled teams. The best item I noticed was a NH Belgium Scott #B605a souvenir sheet (Scott $175). Mostly different, but with some very minor duplication. I did not take the time (so I do not have to charge more) to calculate the catalog value of the collection, but this will be a terrific deal! A wonderful start on this popular topic, or a significant addition to an existing collection!


The United States Constitution Bicentennial Covers Collection: A very attractive collection prepared by the Postal Commemorative Society, containing about 90 1887-1990 cacheted covers. Wide range of significant Constitutional events commemorated with very attractive cachets and additional cards with historical information about each event, with cancellation at a relevant location. In a handsome 2-U-ring gold embossed, deluxe red binder. This type of prepared collection can often be a little "over the top", but this is really nicely done and is very interesting and attractive. The whole collection (covers, pages, and binder) are in pristine, like-new condition. In addition to being an interesting philatelic subject, this is a terrific educational item -- especially these days when the Constitution is mentioned in the news almost every day. All this for just 40-cents per cover!
