Stamp for Dummies ?

Sorry !  You're no more a dummy than anybody else, but sometimes we all need to get some basic information. This page will direct you to other pages on our website which carry good general stamp information. Watch this space - other links will slowly appear.

The Penny Black - its history, some technical information, and advice about values.

British First Day Covers - An Explanation, Introduction, and Guide. With sections on where to get them, how to collect them, quality, and market prices.

UK "England Winners" Stamp of 1966 - the story of this stamp.

Kiloware - stamps collected by charity to raise funds. This page gives advice to charities thinking of trying to raise money this way.

We are open to suggestions for other pages. No promises, but high demand for a certain subject (or something that takes our interest) might bring us to write a new article. Feel free to email us.
