A large variety of material is offered herein, such as mint and used stamps, unsigned stamps without gum, plate blocks, artist signed stamps, errors, prints and collateral material. Please note that we may not have all material in stock, particularly the rare items. However, we will be plased to accept your want list for these items and advise you of price and avaialability when acquired. Explanations provided below are to assist you in understanding some of the philatelic terms used here.

All stamps guaranteed genuine, seven day return privelage.

Note: RW1-20 were wet printed and due to the jumbo size of the stamp, natural gum bends or skips may be present on some stamps. They are not considered a fault, unless excessive.

Catalog # Federal duck stamps are catalogued according to the year in which the stamp was issued. For example, the first duck stamp, issued in 1934, is RW1. If you are ordering by the expiration date on the stamp (i.e. expires June 30, 1946), please back up one year and order the 1945 stamp.
