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.

Germany NH Year Set 1992: Collection of 63 different Mint stamps for 1992, NH VF. Face value DM 79.25. (Old #40259)


Germany NH Year Set 1995: Collection of 69 different Mint stamps and souvenir sheets for 1995, NH VF. Face value DM 90.40. (Old #40261)


West Germany Mini Sheet Collection 1995-96: Pristine collection of 62 mini sheets of 10 including Scott #1800-7, 1858, and between #1878//1924 plus semi-postals #B775-8 and B784-91. The 2007 Scott value of these 62 mini sheets as single stamps is $897, without the premium for mini sheets. These mini sheets are presented in Lindner double-sided black full-page stock pages. The Lindner price of the pages is $24.75. A very nice grouping that is surprising difficult to assemble if you are looking for these. Priced at only approximately 70% of original face value!


Germany First Day Covers and Souvenir Cards 1959-1961: Between Scott #805//841, B368-75, 9N125//195, 9NB21-4, a marvelous 1959-1961 collection of over 100 first day covers and privately produced souvenir cards, about evenly divided between West German and Berlin issues. Most with cachets, mostly unaddressed, virtually all in VF quality. A few have both West German and Berlin franking on the same item. Many of the issues have matching designs of the first day cover cachet and the souvenir card artwork. I suspect that some of these souvenir cards are quite scarce. A very colorful and compelling assemblage which now would be virtually impossible to duplicate!


Great Britain Selection of King Edward VII Issues 1902-1911: Between Scott #127//150 accumulation of over 90 used King Edward VII issues, 17 different in varying quantities. Wide variety of shades and printings, plus some useful town cancels. Condition varies, but nearly all sound and F-VF. A few damaged were not counted in the Scott 2014 catalog value which totals over $1825. An ideal lot for anyone who likes lots of catalog value at a low percentage! A great era for specialization!


Great Britain Scott #33 "Penny Red" Complete Plating (#98) of 240 Stamps: Scott #33, Gibbons #43-44 (two color shades of the "G" series stamps), 1684 1d Red perforated Queen Victoria. Plate #98 complete sheet reconstruction of 240 stamps including all positions from AA through TL, neatly arranged and labeled, in black mounts on five pages. Quality varies from sound and F-VF to minor faults (as is typical for a plating), but overall are very presentable examples. Most have light cancellations and the plate number is visible on all. I have not checked for inverted watermarks or repair (re-cut) impressions. Scott 2019 value is $7.00 per stamp for Plate #98, times 240 equals $1680! Gibbons Victoria 14th edition (2006) is 6.50 pound per stamp, equaling 1560 pounds or about $1980 (12/6/2018)! These catalog values do not begin to reflect the rarity and number of stamps (probably hundreds of thousands?) that had to be examined in order to build this plating. An incredibly impressive assemblage! It is a daunting task to assemble a complete reconstruction of 240 positions without regard for plate number. To accomplish it using only one plate number (and a somewhat scarce one at that) is a monumental achievement that probably took several decades. Here is an opportunity for you to own a single-plate-number plating without having to invest hundreds or thousands of hours of effort!


Great Britain First Day Cover Collection 1964-1984: Collection of over 100 nearly all-different covers of the 1964-1984 period. Mostly cacheted first day covers, the vast majority bear complete commemorative sets and even a couple with souvenir sheets. Most are addressed to Poland, were actually mailed, and some even have Polish receiving handstamps on the reverse (if exhibiting in thematic exhibits, judges like to see receiver markings). Most of the cancellations are official FD cancels, but are small town official FD cancels, not the typical locations. A few are ordinary (but first day dated) postmarks, which are quite unusual in this era. Also includes a few event covers with Polish connections (Papal visit, Warsaw uprising anniversary, etc.). Condition nearly all VF and most would retail in the $1.50 to $3.00 range. A very colorful collection with a tremendous range of many topical stamp issues.


Great Britain: Fleetwood First Day Covers 1974-80: Collection of 57 virtually all different cacheted unaddressed Fleetwood first day covers, almost all in complete sets (usually sets of 5: four individual covers plus a fifth bearing the entire set with a different cachet). Included are Churchill, Christmas Carols, bicycling, horses, QE II Jubilee, trains, dogs, etc. As a bonus, two of the issues are in Fleetwood hard-cover souvenir folders. A very attractive group, VF! Original new issue cost probably well over $150. (Old #40248)


Great Britain First Day Covers - 1990: Collection of 43 all-different 1990 first day covers, with both sets and the corresponding singles on covers. Attractive Fleetwood cachets, unaddressed, excellent quality. Contained in crystal-clear 2-high covers pages, but no binder. Total of the individual retail value is about $50. A very colorful collection with a large range of topical stamp subjects.


Great Britain Isle of Man Penny Black Coin: 1990 1 Crown Penny Black 150th Anniversary COIN. VF. Legal tender coin struck in Pearl Black Cupro Nickel picturing Queen Victoria PENNY BLACK stamp on obverse with portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on reverse. Mounted in handsome protective display card. A nice accent piece! The mint still sells this at $24.95 each.
