Buyer's Guide: Get the Most for Your Stamp Collecting Dollar! by Stephen R. Datz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Using more than 100,000 computerised individual stamp auction lots as a starting point, this incredible resource assesses all US issues on a stamp-by-stamp basis, providing a powerful tool for buying the right stamp at the right price. Featuring more than 600 photos that augment the text, this guide has convenient sections on scarcity, general comments, premium characteristics, and caveats. Stamp prices are based on subtle grades of condition, and consumers are at a disadvantage if they do not have the dealer's intimate knowledge gained from handling hundreds of stamps on a daily basis. This book puts the consumer at the same level as the dealer. A panel of experienced and respected stamp dealers and experts generously share their knowledge on all aspects of stamps, including colour and freshness, centreing and margins, gum and hinging, faults and imperfections, and fakes and problem stamps.
