The United States Stamp Reference Manual
Calling upon the unsurpassed resources of our Mekeel's Weekly (founded in 1891) and STAMPS Magazine (founded in 1932), The Stamp News Publishing United States Reference Manual is the only loose-leaf reference work available for the complete range of U.S. stamps. Written for the casual collector as well as the more advanced philatelist, Reference Manual pages are filled with background information, guides to separating same-design rarities from common varieties and tips on how to identify stamp fakes and forgeries.
Drawing on our original set of more than 600 pages, we now have these Manual sections available…with more to come:
• “Telling Them Apart”: The Washington-Franklin Heads (NEW as of Summer 2013)
Our most important set of pages yet!
• The United States Grills (Scott Catalogue #s 79 // 144A)
20 information-packed pages, complete with high definition photos—including stamp fakes—based on the expert writing of Wm. L. Stevenson and Lester G. Brookman.
The Scott Specialized Catalogue—the most widely used guide to United States stamps and their values—made a major change in the listing of the “I” Grills.
In addition to this Grills Manual Sample Page, you also can access an article on what the “I” Grills are and why they may be ready for a significant increase in value as a result of the Scott listing change.

• Bank Notes Part 2 (Scott #s 205-229, 246-253)
