It is possible to collect for a lifetime and never leave home – get everything you need by mail – but a lot of enjoyment can be added if you join a club or go to stamp shows and exhibitions, and meet other collectors like yourself. Local clubs usually have a general focus, have meetings, and may organize stamp shows as part of their activities. Specialty-collecting groups, which may focus on stamps of one country or one type of stamp, will have a publication as the main service to members, but may have other activities and occasional meetings at large stamp shows. The American Philatelic Society, "America's Stamp Club" is the oldest and largest stamp organization in the United States and has served hundreds of thousands of collectors since 1886.

Sumber LINN"s stamp newsWelcome to Stamp Collecting
Challenge…information…friendships… and just plain fun are part of "the World's Most Popular Hobby," stamp collecting! For more than 150 years, stamp collecting has been the hobby choice of royalty, movie stars, sports celebrities, and hundreds of thousands of other people. Why do so many different types of people like stamps? One reason is, the hobby of stamp collecting suits almost anybody – it's very personal. You fit the hobby to yourself, instead of forcing yourself to fit rules, as with many hobbies. There's not much free choice about how to play golf or softball or square dance – there are many rules.
But stamp collecting can be done in a very simple way using stamps you find on your everyday mail and place on plain paper in a three-ring binder. Or you can give a "want list" to a stamp dealer. He will pull the stamps you want from his stock, and you mount them in the correct spaces in a custom-made album that you bought.
Or you can go to stamp shows or stamp shops and spend hours looking through boxes of stamps and envelopes in search of a particular stamp with a certain postal marking or a special first-day cover that has a meaning to suit your own interests.
Stamp collecting is a special mix of the structured and the unstructured, and you can make it a personal hobby that will not be like anyone else's. It's a world all its own, and anyone can find a comfortable place in it.
"Stamp Collector" or "Philatelist"?
Some people think that a "philatelist" (fi-LAT-uh.list) means someone who is more expert or serious than someone who is a "stamp collector." That's not true! But one advantage of using the word "philately" (fi-LAT-uh-lee) is that it includes all areas of the hobby – not just stamps – such as postal markings, postal history, postal stationery, and the postal items from the time before there were stamps, such as folded letters.
Finding Material for Your Collection
You can easily find everything for your stamp hobby by mail. Stamps, other philatelic material, catalogues, albums, and so on are easy to get by mail order. The philatelic press carries advertising for all of these hobby needs, and stamp shows in your area also will have dealers there. If you are lucky, you also may have a retail stamp store nearby.
Stamp shows may be small on - or two-day events in your local area, or very large events in big-city convention halls lasting several days and featuring hundreds of dealers and thousands of pages of stamp exhibits to see. Stamp shows also provide chances to meet other collectors, some of whom you may have "met" only by mail before.
How to Learn About Your New Hobby
Organizations, publications, and other collectors can help you grow in the hobby. The hobbies/recreation section of your local library may have basic books about stamp collecting, and the reference department may have a set of catalogs.
If your local library has no books on stamp collecting, you can borrow some from the huge collection of the American Philatelic Research Library through interlibrary loan or by becoming a member of the American Philatelic Society.
The ASP/APR are the largest stamp club and library in the United States and offer many services to collectors, including a 100-page monthly magazine, insurance for stamp collections, and a Sales Division through which members can buy and sell stamps by mail among themselves. The ASP/APR are at P.O. Box 8000, State College, PA 16803, or call (814) 237-3803.
There also are many newspapers and magazines in the stamp hobby, including Line's Stamp News, Stamp Collector, Scott's Stamp Monthly, Melee's, Global Stamp News, and Stamps. Some can be found on large newsstands.
Taking Care of Your Collection
Paper is very fragile and must be handled with care. Stamp collectors use special tools and materials to protect their collectibles. Stamp tongs may look like cosmetic tweezers, but they have special tips that will not damage stamps, so be sure to buy your tongs from a stamp dealer and not in the beauty section at the drugstore!
Stamp albums and other storage methods (temporary file folders and boxes, envelopes, etc.) should be of archival-quality acid-free paper, and any plastic used on or near stamps and covers (postal-used envelopes of philatelic interest) also should be archival – as used for safe storage by museums. Plastic that is not archival safe has oil-based softeners that can leach out and do much damage to stamps. In recent years philatelic manufacturers have become more careful about their products, and it is easy now to find safe paper and plastic for hobby use.
Never use cellophane or other tapes around your stamps. Even so-called "magic" tape will cause damage that cannot be undone. Stamps should be put on pages either with hinges (small rectangles of special gummed paper) or with mounts (little self-adhesive plastic envelopes in many sizes to fit stamps and covers). Mounts keep stamps in the condition in which you bought them. Also available are pages with strips of plastic attached to them; these are "self-mounting" pages, meaning all you have to do is slip your stamp into the plastic strip..
Other hobby tools include gauges, for measuring the perforations on stamps, and watermark fluid, which makes the special marks in some stamp papers visible momentarily. "Per's" and watermarks are important if you decide to do some types of specialized collecting.
A Stamp Is a Stamp?
Not really – a stamp can be many things: a feast for the eye with beautiful design and color and printing technique…a study in history as you find out about the person, place, or event behind the stamp…a mystery story, as you try to find out how and why this stamp and envelope traveled and received certain postal markings. Collectors who enjoy postal history always want the stamp with its envelope, which is one reason why you should not be quick to soak stamps off their covers. If you find an old hoard of envelopes, get some advice before you take the stamps off!
Some collectors enjoy the "scientific" side of the hobby, studying production methods and paper and ink types. This also might include collecting stamps in which something went wrong in production: errors, freaks, and oddities. Studying watermarks takes special fluids and lighting equipment, also needed to study the luminescent inks used on modern stamps to trigger high-tech canceling equipment in the post office.
Other branches of collecting include first-day covers (ADCs), which carry a stamp on the first day it was sold with that day's postmark. Some ADCs have a cachet (ca-SHAY), which is a design on the envelope that relates to the stamp and adds an attractive quality to the cover. Some clubs, catalogues, and dealers specialize in ADCs.

The beauty, uniqueness and special significance of UN stamps, combined with their individual, often intriguing histories and original configurations, continue to be a source of fascination and of great value to the collector.
Although philately is one of the most popular hobbies in the world, the average age of collectors is increasing, and the future of philately rests with today's youth. UNPA is encouraging children to enjoy the hobby of philately, with the introduction of collectors' packs and a special stamp album for children. The album features E.T., the extraterrestrial from the popular movie of the same name. Steven Spielberg, the internationally acclaimed director and creator of E.T., granted permission for the project and wrote a foreword to the album. In the album, E.T. leads children on a voyage of discovery about the United Nations and its work and encourages children to collect stamps that relate to each theme.
Human rights, the environment, endangered species and peace are all subjects of universal concern to the peoples of the world. They are also subjects which the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) has promoted on its stamps.
Because United Nations stamps reflect the work of the world Organization, the stamps extend beyond the boundaries of philately to draw attention to significant world problems and to serve as a reminder of the UN's commitment to its goals.
The United Nations is the only organization in the world which is neither a country nor a territory that is permitted to issue postage stamps. It is also the only postal authority to issue stamps in three different currencies, namely U.S. dollars, Swiss francs and Austrian schillings.
United Nations stamps are miniature works of art, which have won international design awards. They are created by artists from around the world, and printed in different countries by the finest security printers.
Stamp collectors appreciate United Nations stamps not only for their innovative designs and universal themes, but also because it is still possible to collect every United Nations stamp ever issued. Since its creation in 1951, UNPA has issued over one thousand stamps.
UN stamps have illustrated the aims and achievements of the United Nations and its family of organizations.
Some of the stamps celebrate a goal achieved, as exemplified in the 1991 Namibia: A New Nation - A Trust Fulfilled stamp issue, which celebrated the birth of Namibia. Other themes, such as the 1990 Fight AIDS Worldwide issue, are a sober reminder of global problems that continue to afflict people everywhere. The stamps also commemorate significant events in the life of the international Organization, such as the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1995.
Recent issues have been concerned with our environment, world peace and the promise of a better world. As the environment has become increasingly threatened, nations of the world have realized that the problems, as well as the solutions, are global. Thus the United Nations, through many of its subsidiary bodies, has made protection of the environment a priority. The current Endangered Species stamp series, with its beautiful illustrations of 12 endangered species each year, calls attention to this plight.
United Nations stamps are issued simultaneously at UN offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna. Each issue carries a related design theme, with different denominations for each office. The stamps are available from UNPA offices in person or by mail, and from stamp dealers. They are valid for postage when used on mail from the UN offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna.
Under its guidelines, the United Nations Postal Administration is confined to selling mint stamps and postal stationery. Usually six new commemorative issues are released each year and remain on sale for 12 months only. After that date, any remaining stocks are destroyed. Commemorative stamps are so named because they commemorate a certain theme. They are never reprinted, even if they are sold out before the end of the 12-month sale period. Definitive stamps have an indefinite sale period and carry denominations necessary for general postal needs. Definitive stamps can be reprinted as necessary.
UN stamps are printed all over the world by security printers, both government printing offices and private security printing firms. UN stamps are produced under the same security controls used for the printing of bank notes. Collectors appreciate the high quality of the stamps, which undergo many quality controls and are screened by UNPA for any flaws. This makes the UN one of the highest-quality producers of stamps among postal administrations.
Not only do United Nations stamps artistically promote the aims of the international Organization, but they provide income for the Organization as well. This income derives almost exclusively from sales of stamps to collectors. The majority of United Nations postage stamps - approximately
85 per cent - are collected by philatelists. The value of all UN stamps used for mailing purposes is reimbursed to the U.S. Postal Service, the Swiss PTT or the Austrian PTT, as appropriate.
The idea of the United Nations issuing its own stamps was first proposed by Argentina in 1947.
An agreement with the United States postal authorities was reached in 1951 and it stipulated that the stamps be denominated in United States currency, and used only at UN Headquarters.
The first United Nations stamps were issued in U.S. dollar denominations on United Nations Day, 24 October, in 1951. The stamps were an immediate success and sold out within days.
Similar postal agreements were reached with the Swiss and Austrian postal authorities.
On 11 December 1968, an agreement between the United Nations and the Swiss Postal Telephone and Telegraph Enterprise enabled the Geneva office of UNPA to issue the first UN stamps in Swiss francs on 4 October 1969.
A similar agreement with the Austrian government on 28 June 1979 enabled the Vienna office of UNPA to issue the first UN stamps in Austrian schillings on 24 August 1979.
To encourage youth philately, UNPA is delighted to offer a stamp album especially designed for children: A Universal World of Stamps E.T. and the United Nations. E.T. is the adorable extraterrestrial who touched the hearts of millions of people throughout the world in "E.T.", one of the most popular movies ever. Throughout this colourful stamp album, E.T. leads children on a discovery of the challenging work of the United Nations and the fascination of stamp collecting.
UNPA is grateful to Mr. Steven Spielberg and Universal City Studios for their creative enthusiasm and generous support for this exciting project.
Included in the stamp album are 12 United Nations stamps. As E.T. introduces an aspect of United Nations work, children are encouraged to find stamps, not only from the UN but from around the world, which relate to that topic and to place them in the album in the spaces provided. Stamp hinges are included with the album for this purpose.
The stamp album is a colourful introduction to the enjoyable hobby of stamp collecting. It is the ideal way to encourage a young would-be philatelist. As Mr. Spielberg says to children about the stamp album, "It will bring hours of fun as you build your collection, gathering stamps from around the world to illustrate the goals and achievements of the ultimate world family, the United Nations. Happy collecting".
The works of the world's great artists, such as Marc Chagall (France), Friedensreich Hundertwasser (Austria), Hans Erni (Switzerland), Vincent Van Gogh (Netherlands), Paul Klee (Germany) and Peter Max (U.S.A.) not only are on display in the great museums of the world, but are also depicted on United Nations stamps.
In recording the activities of the United Nations, the stamps have displayed an enormous variety of styles and designs. From straightforward graphic depiction to illustrations that carry emotional impact, the stamps have represented hope and despair, sadness and joy, or, more simply, commemoration, observance and reflection.

There are today a countless number of collectors of postage stamps. People in all professions, of all political persuasions and all social classes devote themselves to this hobby for pleasure, education and profit. As a roving ambassador of the issuing country, the postage stamp offers a glimpse into a country's cultural, artistic and historical heritage.
Policies regarding the issue, sale and marketing of postage stamps are a matter for each Union member country. However, UPU Congresses have set down from time to time guidelines and recommended postage stamp themes that are likely to contribute in a general way to strengthening the bonds of international friendship. Toward this end, the 1999 Beijing Congress updated its recommendations regarding a "Philatelic code of ethics for use by UPU member countries".
The UPU has also undertaken a number of activities designed to promote philately and has established a Contact Committee with the major philatelic associations. The United Nations postal administration, created in 1951, regularly issues postage stamps from New York, Geneva and Vienna on behalf of the United Na
The world of philately
History of the postage stamp
From the start of postal services throughout the world, a problem arose which lasted several centuries: who should pay the postage – the sender or the recipient?
Although methods often varied from one country to another, it remained the custom for a long time for this task to be that of the recipient. But what if the receiver exercised his right to refuse the letter and not pay the postage?
Many attempts were made to find a solution which would guarantee that the postal organizations would receive the tax that was their due. In France, a certain Monsieur de Velayer had the idea of creating a small post office and in 1653, he offered his customers small pieces of paper with the mention “receipt for the payment of transport.” These were to be put into letterboxes that were emptied at more or less regular hours and then sent to their destinations. In 1814 the Sardinian postal service took up M. de Velayer's idea and relaunched the “stamped paper” principle, but again it was used only for a short time.
It was not until 6 May 1840 that the pre-payment of postage in the form of an adhesive receipt took off. The postage stamp was born when English post offices initiated the sale of the first stamps, the Penny Black stamp and the two Penny Blue stamp with the portrait of Queen Victoria, as well as two prepaid envelopes. The world's first postage stamp, the Penny Black, was introduced by Great Britain.
At first the public found it very hard to adapt to the idea of buying envelopes or stamps in advance and caricatures of these first envelopes very soon appeared. It required some months to reconcile the public to this new procedure for sending mail. But it worked and between May 1840 and January 1841, 72 million Penny Blacks were issued.
The method was rapidly adopted by other countries and the postage stamp thus found its reason for existence – it had become a receipt for services to be rendered. The appearance of stamps on envelopes, postcards, bills and forms also gave rise to a new passion – philately.
