My stamp collection

I collect real and CTO-used worldwide postage stamps from the era of 1840-2010 (and beyond). This page provides a somewhat detailed look into my worldwide stamp collection consisting of over 80,000 different postage stamps.

Please note that the following tables are a work-in-progress, and they may contain some inaccurate information. All the stated “stamps issued”-numbers are based on major catalog identifier counts and are based on Michel stamp catalog listings.

In below table I’ve listed some recent milestones of my stamp collection. Please do notice that the number of items equals the number of items with major catalog ID and does not include varieties (watermarks, perforation differences, color variations etc).
