Here you can identify your weird stamps and at the same time help other people out



the Stamp Galleries

A message from Stefano & Casper Dear surfers and affectionate readers, because of the huge feedback on this site, only serious questions and answers are followed up on. We still receive a lot of questions with obvious answers -- so far we have taken the time to politely answer them, but lack of time is the (only) reason that we have chosen to no longer deal with any such questions ("if it says India it is probably India", that has always been our motto). We realize that for some visitors to this site (especially starting collectors, or people that are no collectors at all) it may not be clear what a question with an obvious answer is, but you can use the following rule of thumb: your question will probably not get an answer from us nor be included in our site if you did not already tried yourself to identify your stamps using a proper standard stamp catalog.
We've posted all the answers, comments and info received during the last month, in the following days also new questions will be posted. So stay tuned!
Thanks to Mr. Leo Bakx for mentioning this site to the Gibbons Stamp Monthly. As it seems Gibbons Stamp Monthly reviewed our site in the January 2001 issue generously awarding us with a 5 star rating (the top score)!!!! Too generous!!! but it's all thanks to you.
Happy surfing!!!

A 2nd message from Stefano & Casper
February 2002 - IMPORTANT NEWS, PLS READ: Linn's Stamp News published a review of this site. And in fact we experienced a dramatic increase in visitors and messages received. Unfortunately we are not in a condition to update the site... at least not until Stefano returns to his old job. We are deeply sorry for this... anyway this site is tremendously helpful as it is now so ENJOY IT!

We plan to keep on improving the site in the future, facts of real life prevents us from doing it for the moment.
