Overview

Using more than 100,000 computerized individual stamp auction lots as a starting point, this incredible resource assesses all U.S. issues on a stamp-by-stamp basis, providing a powerful tool for buying the right stamp at the right price. Featuring more than 600 photos that augment the text, this guide has convenient sections on scarcity, general comments, premium characteristics, and caveats. Stamp prices are based on subtle grades of condition, and consumers are at a disadvantage if they do not have the dealer's intimate knowledge gained from handling hundreds of stamps on a daily basis. This book puts the consumer at the same level as the dealer. A panel of experienced and respected stamp dealers and experts generously share their knowledge on all aspects of stamps, including color and freshness, centering and margins, gum and hinging, faults and imperfections, and fakes and problem stamps.
