How the Site is Arranged

I do not use catalog numbers. There are too many different catalogs in use through the world for any numbering system to be nearly universal. I describe the stamp in English, using the any non English proper nouns. The find the stamp you want pick out the most likely proper noun that I would use in the description. Go to Search this site and type in the proper noun to see if you get any hits. Try two or three words one a time if the first try doesn't work.

I have made hundreds of categories to be browsed. I can make many more. What other categories would you like? Contact me. Sometimes, you can specifically Search for a cover with the sites' search engine. Sometimes, the search engine delivers too many results, many off topic. I can usually help. If you are looking for something and not easily finding it, contact me and I'll prepare a search for you.
