About France Stamp

In 1966, the French post decided to stop printing perforated stamps. This move ended a 170 year tradition. Less than 1,000 so-called DeLuxe Souvenir Sheets from this momentous occasion were ever printed. Only two percent of the stamps from this series remain ''free'' (not already in the clutches of philatelists).France stamp collectors should refer to the two major country guides, Yvert & Tellier and Cellier. You can also check the Scott Catalog for info, but Scott may not have the rarities, particularly from the pre-1860 period.The French postal system employs sophisticated sorting algorithms at its stations to ensure prompt delivery. When purchasing French stamps, you may want to bear the following tips in mind. Try to avoid the ''lunchtime crush'' at the post stations. If you are a night owl, you can buy French postal stamps and access other services at Paris's main railway station 24 hours a day.To find post offices in-country, look for the yellow ''La Poste'' signs. These stations are often abbreviated as PTTs. To save money and time, you may want to go to French tobacco shops, otherwise known as tabacs. Unfortunately, these shops don't sell very diverse selections of stamps, but if you're in a hurry or if you just want convenience, tabacs will do nicely.It costs a half a euro to send a 20 g letter anywhere in France or in the European Union. If you want to mail something to the United States of the same size, you have to pay euro 0.90. Rate calculators at French post offices can tell you how many stamps you need to mail your packages.One of the most scenic places in France to buy stamps is the Louvre Art Museum in Paris. This station is open 24 hours, but don't count on teller service. You can use automatic ticket machines inside to purchase appropriate stamps. For unusual postcards, check out the Rue Saint Andre des Arts in Paris's Latin quarter. You can shop for a surprisingly diverse selection of postcards in French supermarkets, as well. Yet serious stamp collectors will want to head to the major post offices.
