About Worldwide Stamp

In the late-19th century, over two dozen countries worldwide got together and formed the Universal Postal Union (UPU). This organization developed a protocol for worldwide stamp issuance that is still, in many ways, employed today. The rules of the UPU may seem somewhat arbitrary. For instance, postal stamp issuances generally must include a reference to the country of origin. Stamps made in Great Britain, however, do not have to do so.Worldwide stamp collecting can be a time-consuming, but exceptionally rewarding hobby. Exotic issuances abound from practically every country. From the United States' Inverted Jenny of 1918 to Australia's two pound Map and Kangaroo stamps of 1913 to Canada's famous eight dollar Grizzly Bear of 1997, the world is awash in stamp curiosities.Worldwide stamp bodies recognize more than 400,000 different varieties of stamps, although perhaps twice as many stamps have gone on record in the annals of major catalogs. Before the advent of the UPU, cities, local towns, and even industries used home grown ad hoc stamp systems. Few survivors from these series remain intact at all, and fewer still remain intact and in good or mint condition.Global philatelists generally develop themes for their collections. One fun stamp collecting methodology is to collect at least one stamp from every country that issues stamps. Another interesting way to prospect is to collect all stamps from a given era. You can also cull together eclectic collections based on whims or personal travel experiences.
