Considering Stamps For Your Collection

Posted: Mar 27, 2010 |




]]>

In most states and counties, it is common to find a variety of groups catering to the hobby of collecting stamps. People engage in stamp collecting as a general interest; other times they are in it because of the possibility of profit in collecting rare stamps. This profit comes from the fact that stamps hold a degree of history of a community, or even an entire country.

While some people collect stamps without regard for its quality or details, the more dedicated stamp collectors who understand this profitability pay attention to a variety of details that would determine the worth of the stamp.

CONDITION

The first and most simple rule of thumb is-if the stamp is damaged, it’s likely to be worth very little, or worth nothing at all. The condition of the stamp plays a huge factor especially with dedicated collectors.

A used stamp in excellent condition is one with its complete set of perforated edges and is not torn, has the design centered in the stamp, still retains a degree of vibrancy of color as when it was issued, has a very light cancellation stamp (as with used stamps), and the gum or adhesive of the stamp as close to intactness as possible, and is not creased or folded in any way.

A stamp without its complete set of perforated edges has lesser value than its counterpart with less physical damage.

Meanwhile, a stamp with equal spaces placed between the perforation and the stamp’s design is considered ‘centered’; its value marginally decreases when it is poorly centered, and greatly decreases when the perforation runs through the design.

The vibrancy of the colors of the design, on the other hand, is affected by the soaking or lifting method used on the stamp to remove it from its original envelope attachment, or by exposure to sunlight. Obviously, the more vibrant the colors are, the greater the value of the stamp.

]]>

The cancellation of a used stamp plays a vital role because if the stamp is too heavily cancelled, there is a huge possibility that the visibility and clarity of the design is compromised.

Lastly, a stamp with the gum or adhesive as close to being intact has greater value. Hinges, or the marks left by heavy licking and attachment to paper, greatly affect the value of the stamp. A lightly hinged stamp would be of higher value than one that is heavily hinged.

Unless one is an expert in stamp lifting or soaking, many stamp collectors opt to keep their stamps attached to a small portion of the envelope they were originally attached to. The first reason for keeping the stamp attached is the fear of tearing or damaging the physical wholeness or condition of the stamp, which may happen when removing the stamp with insufficient or no soaking at all. Another possibility is that of the ink of the stamp running. This happens usually with stamps issued before the 1940s. During this period, fugitive ink, which runs in water, was used to print the designs on the stamps. Some of the ink used in canceling stamps may also run in water onto the design and completely ruin the stamp completely; therefore with the difficulty of identifying the ink used in stamp cancellations, stamp collectors either resort to stamp lifting or simply keeping the stamp in its original form. Soaking stamps may also cause the design to fade and lose its vibrancy.

UNIQUENESS

The second consideration that must be put to mind is the uniqueness of the stamp. The profitability of the stamp comes from the fact that many collectors seek out particular designs. A unique stamp may be three things-a stamp from a much earlier period, and thus holds a great historical value, a stamp that was released in limited numbers over a short period of time, and a stamp that features a particular historical or social event of note to collectors and the general public.   The fewer of the stamp available for acquisition in the free philatelic market, the likelier the stamp enthusiasts will bid higher for it.

In relation to this second consideration is the DEMAND for the stamp. This is usually indicative of the market value that a stamp can go for, and is usually revealed in stamp catalogues. Stamp catalogues, which are accessible from most libraries, will not only reveal the possible selling price of the stamp (although most sellers mark their stamps at a lower price), but also how many of the stamp was issued, where it was issued, and how it may be classified. Some popular stamp catalogues available in libraries include the Scott, Stanley Gibbons, Michel, OCB, Hibernian, and Sakura catalogues. The price quoted in the catalogue will clearly imply how much collectors are willing to pay to get that stamp.

At the end of the day, a professional stamp dealer may help in the valuation of the stamp. The valuation of the stamp may be subject to the experience of the professional dealer and his or her knowledge of its demand; however, he or she will still return to the basic three listed above. This is because among all else, these are universal standards by which a stamp’s worth is measured.

Reasons to Collect Postage Stamps

Posted: Nov 10, 2009 | Views: 113 |




]]>

Many people consider stamp collecting as a personal hobby. To get started in collecting stamps can be fun and exciting. It is important to be sure what type of stamps to search and look for. He must also know how to secure and preserve them so that he will be able to present them in a very organized and well-presented compilation of stamp collections.

A mail cannot be delivered if it has no postage. It is a small square or rectangular piece of paper pasted on the right part of a mail. Postage stamps are very important to make a letter or message inside the envelope delivered to a person or organization at a certain location. Postage stamps can feature many designs. Printings like, cars, flowers, landmarks, animals, persons, places and events are the most common themes of these stamps.

One of the main reasons why many people go for postage stamp collecting is because of the price value. The most famous items that are still available are the sports collectors’ stamps, icons, landmarks, places, and famous celebrities. One of the most out sought collection stamp is the 1993 Elvis Presley postage stamp. The philatelic collectors have popularized it by insisting to include the image of Elvis from postage stamp circulation all over the country.

Other famous celebrity postage stamps that followed are the sexy pictorials of Marilyn Monroe issue in 1995 and the James Dean stamp of 1996. There was also success for releasing cartoon postage stamps especially those with featured images of Bugs Bunny in 1997 and the peanuts postage stamp in 2001. The world of sports also has its share for issuing stamps that were widely accepted by sports enthusiasts like the Centennial Olympic stamps of 1996 and the Summer Olympics stamps in 1992.

]]>

The Post Office also gave importance to the American community when they issued the Black Heritage series of postage stamps in the 70’s. They featured great African Americans like Otis Redding and Harriet Tubman. These postage stamps are still widely recognized as collectors’ items.

Other postage stamps may seem to have valuable costs aside from these special commemorative postage stamps. Some of these stamps are valued because of the some errors in making these stamps. The United Post office may have released them and they have considered them collectibles because of the errors in the images and probably the imperfections on the stamps. The uniqueness of these postage stamps makes them valuable and considered special editions of stamps.

For those aspiring stamp collectors, they may want to avail of some limited edition stamps from the main United States Post Office that have released commemorative stamps since early 2005 and is still making these featured postage stamps. The value of an average stamp is less expensive than a commemorative stamp. The difference with the price value is obvious.

To most collectors, the ideal collections are the stamps that were not used yet for the mail. Most used stamps in mails may have been creased or torn already. However, a collector who goes for collecting because of the fun and pleasure may accept used stamps. Others may still go for the stamps that are not yet used because they are after the profit and price value of limited edition stamps.

For those collectors who want to pursue their interest of making money out of these collections, they should remember some important thing to make the price value of their stamps increase in price value. A collector should know how to keep the stamps clean and keep them away from dirt and creases. If a person is lucky enough to avail initial release stamps, he should preserve the new issues with plastic coverings. He may also secure them with wax paper bags that he can buy at the post office.

He should make sure to secure and preserve the postage stamps properly. He must find a place where he can store them. Stamp albums should help him organize and compile the items safely and have them presentably displayed. He must make sure the album is acid-free to ensure that it will not alter any sensitive prints and markings on the postage stamps. It is advisable to store them on a cool and dry place.

In the Princeton Guide, we learn that John Bryant "was a member of the state legislature from Bureau, Peoria, and Stark in 1842, and again in 1858. . . . In 1848 he was one of the early editors of the first newspaper to be established in Bureau County; in 1860 was a delegate to the convention in Chicago which nominated Abraham Lincoln; was appointed collector of internal revenue by President Lincoln in 1862."

Sir Peter Paul Rubens (June 28, 1577 – May 30, 1640) was a prolific seventeenth-century Flemish Baroque painter, and a proponent of an exuberant Baroque style that emphasized movement, color, and sensuality. He is well-known for his Counter-Reformation altarpieces, portraits, landscapes, and history paintings of mythological and allegorical subjects.

In addition to running a large studio in Antwerp which produced paintings popular with nobility and art collectors throughout Europe, Rubens was a classically-educated humanist scholar, art collector, and diplomat who was knighted by both Philip IV, king of Spain, and Charles I, king of England.

Rubens was born in Siegen, Westphalia, to Jan Rubens and Maria Pypelincks. His father, a Calvinist, and mother fled Antwerp for Cologne in 1568, after increased religious turmoil and persecution of Protestants during the rule of the Spanish Netherlands by the Duke of Alba. Jan Rubens became the legal advisor (and lover) to Anna of Saxony, the second wife of William I of Orange, and settled at her court in Siegen in 1570. Following Jan Rubens’ imprisonment for the affair, Peter Paul Rubens was born in 1577. The family returned to Cologne the next year. In 1589, two years after his father’s death, Rubens moved with his mother to Antwerp, where he was raised Catholic. Religion figured prominently in much of his work and Rubens later became one of the leading voices of the Catholic Counter-Reformation style of painting.[1]

In Antwerp, Rubens received a humanist education, studying Latin and classical literature. By fourteen he began his artistic apprenticeship with Tobias Verhaeght. Subsequently, he studied under two of the city’s leading painters of the time, the late mannerists Adam van Noort and Otto van Veen.[2] Much of his earliest training involved copying earlier artists’ works, such as woodcuts by Hans Holbein the Younger and Marcantonio Raimondi’s engravings after Raphael. Rubens completed his education in 1598, at which time he entered the Guild of St. Luke as an independent master.

Isabella Bran(d)t (1591–1626) was the first wife of Peter Paul Rubens. She was the daughter of Jan Brant, an important city official in Antwerp, and Clara de Moy. Brant married Rubens on 3 October 1609 in Saint Michael’s Abbey, Antwerp. They had three children: Clara, Nikolaas and Albert. She was 34 years old when she died of the plague.

In 1977, Brant appeared on a postage stamp of Anguilla.

MAKER: SILEX
MODEL: DRIPOLATOR
SIZE: APX 6.5 INCHES TALL
CONDITION: NICE CONDITION BUT MISSING THE SPREADER.

THIS SCARCE SMALL SILEX COFFEE MAKER WAS DESIGNED FOR JUST JUST TWO CUPS OF COFFEE. THIS RARE PIECE WAS PRODUCED BY THE SILEX COMPANY AND SOLD IN THE 1920’S. THIS DRIP COFFE MAKER HAD THREE PARTS: THE LOWER POT, THE UPPER BOWL WITH SEVEN HOLES IN THE BASE, AND A SMALL GLAS WEIGHT THAT HELD DOWN A PAPER FILTER CALLED THE SPREADER (MISSING). HOT WATER IS POURED OVER THE GROUNDS AND COFFEE DRIPS DOWN INTO THE LOWER BOWL.

I’VE DECIDED TO SELL THIS ENTIRE COLLECTION. FOR THE COLLECTOR, A COFFEE SHOP, RESTAURANT, ETC. THIS WOULD BE A STUNNING COLLECTION. THERE ARE APX 50 PIECES. IF YOUR INTERESTED, SEND ME AN E-MAIL, MAKE ME AN OFFER.
