Philately

Philately is the exciting hobby of collecting stamps and stamp related items. They may be collected mint both used and unused, souvenir sheets, first day covers, philatelic cards, souvenir folders, maximum cards, stamp packs, booklets, postal stationery, Iposita cancellations and stamp artworks. Philatelists collect stamps for the sentimental value given to the work of art, theme, rarity of the stamp, educational reasons, shape, or as an investment.

What to Collect:

When you first start collecting stamps, you will probably want to collect all the stamps you can get. Later on you may decide to specialize in stamps of one country, or in stamps with a particular theme. You will then be able to exchange your extra stamps with other collectors and build up your own collection. Collecting every stamp issued is difficult so collectors decide which country or theme (flowers, animal, birds, sports and onions) they wish to concentrate on, collectors may also choose to collect mint unused stamps in various “arrangements” such as:

Books of four stamps: top right, top left, bottom right, or bottom left. Sheets of 100 stamps: 50 stamps On two panes of 25 stamps Gutter strips Traffic light blocks Numeric blocks

There are two types of stamp issues: Commemorative: These are issued to mark special events, occasions of national or international importance, and also to cover themes of general interest. They are normally withdrawn from sale at the post office after six months, and after twelve months at the stamp bureau.

Definitive postage stamps are essentially issued for postage purposes. The issue comprises of a full range of about sixteen denominations which are released every five years.
