Before becoming a philatelic publisher decades ago, I was a full-time dealer in stamps. Today, buying and selling stamps is a side line.

I even have some of that old stock included in the lists you will find here, as well as material I have picked up over the past 30 years—and as
I work through a backlog of boxes or locate new material, I will offer those stamps here.

Prices are subject to change without notice. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express—and everything is fully guaranteed.  

To place an order, click the appropriate link below for that price list. You can print out the price list, circle what you want, calculate the total and send payment with your order by mail. Or, if you prefer, you can click here for our Stamp Sales Order Form [PDF Format]. If you have any questions contact us at jd@stampnewsnow.com or call us toll free on our business cell phone number at (603) 424-7556. Thank you.

Collect The Farleys!

Click for: Collect The Farleys, Price List

Today The Farleys are a popular collecting specialty, but when they were first discovered they were a source of considerable controversy as collectors discovered that a favored few had received Special Printings. Even after they were made generally available, some collectors felt they should not be listed in the Scott Catalogue.

But listed they were—and in the formats that their sale in full uncut sheets made possible. So, you can collect line or gutter pairs—vertical and horizontal—and cross gutter or center line blocks. There also are arrow blocks and plate blocks. And as sets and pieces can be added one issue or format at a time, this "neat collectibility" factor makes it exceptionally easy to build a complete collection. Add in the appeal of the designs and the subjects, and you can appreciate why The Farleys have become so popular with intermediate and advanced collectors.

Perhaps most important, another inherent value in building a Farleys Collection is that despite their scarcity, all of the varieties are still within the budget of most collectors. Even the rarest piece—the Center Line Block of the beautiful "Great Seal of the United States" Air Post Special Delivery, Scott 771, of which only 5,734 were printed is priced at just $42.50—as you will see in our "Collect The Farleys" Price List.

Used U. S. & Mint U. S.

Click for: Used U. S. Sale!

This era has staged a comeback in the past decade by collectors who are operating on a budget, and increasingly as a growing respect for stamps that actually served the purpose for which they were issued. This also is a growth area for us and we are adding to our offerings as we acquire new material or work through stock accumulated over more than 50 years. We offer here mostly moderately priced stamps, from Classics and Bank Notes right on up to recent issues. This includes nice appearing stamps with faults, as described and priced to move.

As we continue to process an accumulation of mint U.S., this list consolidates—at reduced prices—our current holdings of mint singles, souvenir sheets and mint sheets. And, as always, we also welcome your want lists!

Beyond the classic look of the early airmails, this wonderful area continues to offer new and different issues. Reflecting the glamour of this new mode of moving the mails, airmail stamps traditionally were given special attention by the United States Post Office designers and the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. Here we offer those older stamps from our stock—now more than 90 years old—as well as most of the issues from the past 75 years.
