Postal Service Guide to U.S. Stamps, 44th Ed
The only official fully illustrated guide to U.S. stamps, the 44th Edition of The Postal Service Guide to U.S. Stamps provides the most comprehensive information available about the U.S. stamp program and its 171 years of history.
Beautiful high-resolution imagery and updated values accompany stamps and postal stationery from across the Postal archive. Special “back-of-the-book” sections include the 19th-century Newspaper and Periodical stamps, Airmail, Special Delivery, Official Mail, and Federal Duck Stamps.
The Guide opens with an introduction to the hobby and tips on stamp collecting, and mini stamp stories are sprinkled throughout the book. Each era of the U.S. stamp program is introduced with background information on that particular period in philatelic history.
