Stamps of the Commonwealth
Queen Elizabeth is a very prominent figure on stamps that adorn letters. While some come from the UK, there are many overseas territories that also include the Queen’s head on their stamps. Explore the smaller lands of the monarch’s realm with releases from places such as Tristan de Cunha, Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands.
A postage stamp can also demonstrate the changing face of the nation states and how the British Empire has changed over the years. A stamp from places such as Hong Kong, Rhodesia and even India, are great pieces to add to your collection.
Pre-loved or Mint Condition
As well as postage stamps from every corner of the planet and across many different decades, you can choose to collect stamps with a postal mark or stamps in mint condition. Postage stamps in mint will look the same as they did when they left the printing press and can make valuable rare philately pieces for collectors.
Pre-used stamps bring with them a sense of reality of the story behind the stamps. Often, stamps will have a different postal mark from the type of stamp used and it’s fascinating to trace the patterns as they crisscross the globe. For some collectors this brings additional value to a stamp.
Value vs. Worth
A rare stamp can often reach incredibly high prices at www.yahbooks.com auctions. Such rare stamps are often worth a lot of money and can be seen as a good investment. However, passionate stamp collecting goes much deeper than treating stamps as valuable pieces of paper. Even a regular stamp can be priceless for the true collector.
