Organize and enjoy

Collectors of United States stamps get a break in July, compared to the large number of stamps issued in May and June for new postage rates. Only one new U.S. stamp issue is planned for July. That should give you a chance to organize your collection, so our newsletter feature about stock books and stock pages just might come in handy.

This month's newsletter also takes a look at recent stamps that appeal to the senses (the French chocolate stamps are my favorite), a report about stamps from Lithuania, and a preview of the August Scott Stamp Monthly.

If you would like to share this newsletter with a fellow collector, just click on the envelope symbol at the top of this page.

Stock Pages space

Stock pages help organize your growing collection

The stock page is a firm page with horizontal compartments that can hold your stamp inventory safely. Most stock pages have holes punched along one edge so they can fit into a three-ring or similar binder.
