Cozying Up To A Postal Clerk
No matter how you start collecting stamps you are going to have to venture out further to find new specimens for your collection. Once you have exhausted your own mail and whatever your friends, neighbors, and relatives save for you, you will need to think a bit out-of-the-box.
Searching For Stamps Beyond Your Home
It used to be that you could get a lot of stamps from the mail that you receive. With the advent of the Internet, times have changed. It isn’t possible to receive the amount of used stamps that was possible just a few years ago.
Disposing of “any” stamps is not in the nature of a stamp collector. Emotionally, a stamp collector does not really trade or sell off an item.
Rare Stamp Investing
Most people who get into stamp collecting do so for the fun of it. A few people buy stamps in the hopes of making massive profits. Sadly most of these individuals are going to be disappointed when they attempt to cash their “rare” stamps in for the jackpot.
Stamps That Reach Maturity
The age of a stamp does not determine its ultimate value. Much like books, just because a stamp could be 100 years old, it still will not make it rare or valuable.

Watermarks On Postage Stamps
Laid paper comes to be via larger, parallel wires that form a design, which, in theory is a “watermark.” A watermark is an intentially thin area in the finished paper. To put it a different way, a watermark is something that “isn’t,” rather than something that “is.”
Paper For Stamps
Paper comes in such a wide variety of different types it is hard to say how long it would take you to list all of them. Fortunately, you only need to be aware of only a few types.
Some Thoughts On Stamp Collecting
through stamp collecting, one discovers educational information about sports, science, history, arts, currency, animals, rituals and customs of different countries and their people.
Matching Stamp Parameters With Finds
You will find stamps in a variety of forms. The same design that you can find on a single stamp could also be on a souvenir sheet, and/or part of a miniature sheet.
