Item details

Packet of Used World Postage Stamps
Random Mix including vintage & more recent

You will receive a random selection of mostly used stamps, which may or may not include some of those shown (pictures are a representative sampling but my collection is added to regularly).

1 packet = 5 grams (approx. 0.18 ounce)

Packets are made up by weight, so exact quantity of stamps will vary depending on size. Pic 2 shows a random 5 gram selection. I have found this weight averages around 40-45 stamps, but maybe a couple more or less with each mix. These packets contain mostly medium-large stamps, with a handful of smaller, definitives etc. I will try to avoid duplicates in any single packet, but there will be a little duplication if multiple packets are purchased at one time.

Stamps are mostly issues from the latter half of the 20th century, although there may be one or two more recent, or much older than others. The mix you receive will be randomly selected from those available, but I will try to include a range of different countries.

Stamps are in good condition, most are used & postmarked although there may be one or two mint unused. They have been collected from kiloware and old stamp albums so may occasionally have a stray stamp hinge on the reverse.

These packets are great collection-builders for beginner philatelists, or great for adding an authentic international travel flavour to your upcycled craft projects, greeting cards, scrapbooking etc. All stamps in each packet are off paper, ready to use/craft (not valid for use as actual postage!).

I use stamps regularly in my own artwork (see my shop: http://tanglecrafts.etsy.com ). These packets are made up from the excess which do not fit my own projects - a continual process of sorting & filtering, which means new stamps are frequently added into the mix. Just a way to keep these otherwise unloved stamps in circulation!

    These stamps are lovely and are in great condition to say they are used, also there is a great variety of stamps from around the world, i find it exciting to see what the stamps from around the world look like so i find them well worth the price. i would buy from this seller again, the dispatch time and delivery was really quick and the stamps were beautifully presented.
