Stamps From Switzerland Online
Stamp Mixture - Switzerland For Sale
An excellent way to get the best value for a beginner collector is to buy a
mixture where all stamps are different. This minimizes duplicates which seem to
accumulate regardless of what a collector does.
This VisitEuropeOnline.com web site has several offers of stamps for sale.
The best buy is 200 different colorful genuine stamps from Switzerland for $14
postpaid. All are ready to be placed in a notebook, stock book, or album.
That's about 6 cents each, postpaid.
These stamps can form an interesting addition to a school report, make
wonderful additions to scrapbooks by croppers, can be framed, and can be
included in a genealogical report to demonstrate visions of the home country at
very little cost. Since the cost is very small, these stamps can be glued on any
sort of poster or bulletin to add interest. I also offer topical stamps which
are quite colorful. Click HERE
top go to the topicals list where you will find
stamps of birds, flowers, cars, boats, trains, planes, flowers, and, well you
get the idea. These sorts of stamps can really add interest to reports, posters
and school projects. They are also great for show-and-tell. I save stamps from
Italy and Sweden mostly because those are the countries of my ancestors. I like
having a little piece of something from those countries. You may feel the same.
Here is a picture which represents the sort of stamps you will get when you
order 200 different mixture for $14 postpaid. . Since the sale price is so low,
I can not scan every mixture and put it on the web site for you to see before
you buy. But I can offer a full refund if you are not pleased with what you
get. And the mixture you will receive will closely follow what you see in the
sample picture. I have high positive feedback at eBay so you can believe I will
refund if you do not like what you get. The stamps will not be mounted on a
stock sheet as pictured. But rather they will be in an envelope. I will include
some stamp hinges for mounting. I will also include an information sheet telling
you how to mount the stamps.

Here are details about the group of collectors who specialize in stamps of
The American Helvetia Philatelic Society (AHPS) is the largest group for
collectors of Swiss stamps outside Switzerland. The current organization dates
from 1975 but traces its lineage back to 1938, when six Swiss and three
Americans founded the original Society for Collectors of Switzerland in

Survey of Swiss Philately

Swiss Philately that he names Swiss Fondue. He has earned awards
at many stamp shows for this exhibit. Click
here to see the Web version, lovingly formatted by AHPS member Steve
The society’s primary service is its bimonthly journal named TELL,
after William Tell, the legendary Swiss folk hero. This publication
contains original research articles, translations, a question-and-answer
column, literature reviews, society news, and advertisements from U.S.
and foreign dealers.

AHPS members have said, in a past survey, that they collect Swiss
stamps for one of four reasons: family ties to Switzerland, the
experience of living or visiting there, the fine design and printing
quality of Swiss stamps, or the country’s solid reputation for a
conservative stamp-issuing policy and hard currency. Click
