Collections: World: Worldwide  
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.

Worldwide Collection to 1958 in Four Scott International Albums: Mounted collection of a few thousand different, mint and used, on Scott International pages (Parts I-III, 1840-1958), integrated alphabetically (a big benefit) in 4 blue International binders (insted of the expected 3 binders). [When first issued, Part III started out ending in the early 1950s but as more pages were issued, Scott did not start Part IV, they continued as Part III until the late 1950s; this collection has pages through 1958. This explains why this collection is in four binders instead of three.] It appears that some stamps were removed at some point in time, but this is much nicer than a remnant and still deserves to be called a collection. Includes some United States. World contents somewhat uneven: some countries sparce, others well represented. Includes many common stamps, but you will also find medium values scattered throughout to the $1-$5 catalog value range. Very few minor faults; nearly all F-VF or better with much VF. Some of the mint are lightly stuck, but many of those can probably be lifted with care. The albums date from the 1950s, and are starting to show their age, but they are still in much nicer than usual condition for these. If one wanted to continue the collection in this housing that would be perfectly reasonable. This is an excellent value -- especially for anyone who can use a set of albums to house their older worldwide collection.


Worldwide Balance of an Unusual Old-Time Collection: Collection balance of thousands of stamps, mint and used, mounted on blank pages. Ranging from 19th century to the 1950s and seemingly not touched by the collector since the 1950s. (A "balance" means that stamps have been removed at some point in time.) Contents spread out on a stack of pages (3-hole punched, NO binders) that measures 16 inches high! Enormous range of countries, including many "dead" countries such as Alaouites, Montenegro, the old colonial empires, etc., plus a little bit of non-Scott material. While much is common, you wil also find many useful older numbers in the $1-$5 catalog value range. What makes this collection balance so unusual is the presence of many seldom seen (in such collections) stamps -- while some may have low catalog values, they are simply not often encountered in typical old collections. Quality varies: there are some minor faults, but vast majority is F-VF or VF. Many lightly stuck at the top edge of the hinge, but most can be removed with care. (TIP: Always remove the page from the stamp, NOT the stamp from the page.) A varied and interesting collection which will provide hours of pleasure for a worldwide collector!
