STAMP MARKET PRICE REPORT

In general, the stamp market has been stronger for the past few months. Topical stamps have been added to our survey. Thematics are an important poart of the stamp market. Topical stamps, especially Bird stamps, are gaining popularity.

Scott catalog indicates that the years 1960 through 1980 had weak prices and we agree. The strongest eras are pre-1940 and the years 2005 through 2013.

Market strength is graded on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest value assigned.

In 2008 we started a Market Report for the stamp market as we see it. This chart is a reflection of what our customers order and how market prices are moving. We have an excellent view of national and international stamp collecting interests and are glad to share these rough guidelines with you.

Thank you for visiting my site.
