Welcome to my internet stamp album!

This site contains photos and details of my entire US stamp collection, including all the details of when/where I acquired each stamp and its conditions. My goal is to share what I have, and to provide an example for others who might want to create a web page for their collection.

I specialize in early United States postage stamps, generally before 1930. I do not desire (nor have the means) to own a copy of every variety of stamp, but do hope someday to have a relatively complete collection of the major collectible items. For greater detail regarding my collection and methods, please see the "my collection" page.

This album is a constant work-in-progress. I will slowly add content, along with new stamps as I acquire them. Please send me an email (using the contact link above) if you care to comment on my collection or this website.


05-05-2012: Several new stamps added. Life is too busy to devote as much time as I would like to my collection. But someday this will be a huge passion of mine.

10-07-2010: After a long period of inactivity, I finally started back at the task of building pages and scanning my stamps. I also incorportated a slideshow on this homepage.

10-02-2009: I have completed scanning and entering all of my stamps through the 19th century. As to today, that includes 120 items from my stamp collection. Much more to go. I also hope to add a few items from OKPEX 2009 today.

09-24-2009: Work continues. I have found several very useful javascript routines at leigeber.com that have been incorporated into the site. These include "TinyBox" for pop-up stamp details, and "TinyTable" for the collection summary page.

09-17-2009: Project started
