About Philately

Philately is the study and collection of stamps. Experts at philately, or philatelists, often seek out spectacle stamps to add personality to their sets. Some philatelists intentionally go after so-called Cinderella stamps. Cinderellas are actually not stamps at all but rather labels, commemorative issuances, and other ephemera from expositions. Sometimes so-called ''micronations,'' such as island colonies, issue stamps which have no value other than as Cinderella collectibles.Others who enjoy philately collect ''test stamps,'' or pieces which were never intended to be used as postage. In Britain, automatic stamp machines employ one of these tests stamps, called the poached egg (for its shape). Most poached eggs remain intact as test stamps throughout their lives. However, others wind up accidentally affixed as legitimate postage stamps. Poached egg test stamps which get successfully passed in the mail and canceled may be of significant value to British collectors.Charity stamps are designed especially for philatelists. In the United States, the government issues stamps to support the Red Cross, the March of Dimes, the US Fish and Wildlife Reserve program, and other altruistic causes. The U.S. duck stamp, which has been regularly issued since 1934, has added over $670 million to the nation's coffers for the express purpose of protecting endangered coastal wildlife.Finally, some philatelists set their sights on impractical or offset stamps. The most famous U.S. offset stamp features an upside down double-decker plane. This piece, which dates from the 1910s, has sold at auction for tens of thousands of dollars. Always carefully examine old stamps in your collection to determine whether or not you have a wild-card error.
