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 Solid Silver Miniature Stamp Replicas Collection: A collection of 100 (my count, but subject to error) miniature sterling silver stamp replicas. As sent to the subscriber from the Franklin Mint in 1982-1985, still in the mailing envelopes, some with the purchase receipts, some with and some without an informational sheet. Each sending consisted of a shrink-wrapped card holding TWO pieces. I have counted 50 cards, thus 100 items but I have NOT verified that all are different, though I anticipate that they are all different (but I do not guarantee that). Those 50 cards, assuming correctly counted and all different, would constitute the complete set of 100. These are NOT in a display box. To protect from potential tarnishing, I have NOT removed any from their plastic covered holders, but that also means that I cannot confirm the weight of the silver (but they are quite small). Most of the 100 items consist of a single stamp design, but some have double or even one triple stamp design (thus are larger and heavier). These sets are regularly offered on eBay -- the start price generally ranges between $250 and $500, including a display box. Over three years, the original subscriber paid $9.50 for every two items, thus paid $475 for the total, plus tax and shipping. They are said to be .925 sterling silver and one seller claims the total weight (I cannot confirm) for all 100 is 107 grams. Obviously the market assigns more value to the collectible objects than to the weight of the silver, however, they are very attractive. I am not in the silver business but if the weight is 107 grams and at the current silver price of US$0.73 per gram, the silver value comes to about $78 as I understand it. While I could probably get much more by messing around putting this on eBay, I have priced this very low to sell quickly.
