Meter stamp catalog

According to the Meter Stamp Society, the soft-bound,1300 page, "The International Postage Meter Stamp Catalog" by Joel A. Hawkins & Richard Stambaugh is the first comprehensive worldwide meter stamp catalog published in over 50 years, and contains a great number of stamps cataloged nowhere else.

The book is lavishly illustrated with over 6500 figures that simplify type identification, and most stamps are valued in US dollars.

The catalog includes a tremendous amount of meter stamp history beginning with the first issue of 1897 up to the turn of the 21st century. The emissions of over 300 stamp issuing entities are covered.

Also included are helpful references and collecting tips that will benefit even the most advanced stamp collectors, postal historians, and stamp dealers.
