Professional Stamp Experts (PSE) Creates Innovative Stamp Album

Professional Stamp Experts (PSE) has created an innovative stamp album based on PSE's "A Guide to U.S. Design Numbers," a simplified system for building a basic collection of United States postage stamps by major design type.

The 74-page album is printed on acid-free paper. It contains spaces for 435 regular-issue U.S. postage stamps issued between 1847 and 1947 and intended for use on letters or parcels. Each stamp design is illustrated and has a write-up about the stamps and the design type, i.e. Banknote and Bureau Issues.

Descriptions also have the "USD" number listed in PSE's U.S. Design Numbers booklet as well as the Scott Catalogue numbers.

Each page has a write-up about the stamps and the design type (i.e. Banknote and Bureau Issues). As an added bonus, the plain edge, 8.5 X 11 format on heavy stock makes each page suitable for framing or for sharing with friends, family or co-workers.

PSE's United States Stamps by Design Type, Part 1, Regular U.S. Postage, 1847 to 1947 is a real stroke of philatelic genius that benefits both the novice and advanced collector who don't have the money, time, and/or interest to collect all the different varieties of early U.S. stamps.

The album can be purchased for $35 each, postpaid, and is available with a plain left edge or with a three-hole punch.
