Stanley Gibbons Super Stamp Collector Starter Pack - R2417
Collecting stamps is universally recognised as a very enjoyable hobby for people of all ages and the perfect way to start this hobby is with the Super Stamp Collector Starter Pack, available from the Post Office Shop. Stamp collecting is one of the most interesting ways to learn about other countries – their people, scenery and wildlife. Many stamps are exciting works of art on a small scale.
The Super Stamp Collector Starter Pack contains the following:
- Transworld Stamp Album: World history shows itself on the album page, with pictures of famous men, women and events from history. It’s designed for a collection of stamps of the whole world. The order is usually alphabetical with countries placed under their present day names, with a complete index provided, for countries that have changed their names, this is also shown in the notes below the country’s heading. An example of this is Ceylon, as it’s now named Sri Lanka. This is made aware by the old name being in bold. A brief note is made of the location of each country on each page also.
- 250 Worldwide Stamps: Most sports have been shown on the stamps whilst pictures of animals, birds, butterflies, fish, aircraft, cars, railways, ships and space travel appear on others. These stamps symbolise or state the country of origin and also state the date. Examples of some stamps provided are: The Unequal Marriage in Russia (1862) The Winter Olympics (1976) The Posta Roman Painting in Romany (1976)
- Pack of 1000 Stamp Hinges: These offer excellent adhesion, while allowing the hinge to be peeled from both stamp and album page when required. It’s important to note that only the very lightest of moistening of the gum is necessary in order for the stamp to be securely mounted.
