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 90,000 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.
