A story of Holland as seen on postage stamps
By Rick Aalhuizen
As a business card tells you about the business it represents and what they have to offer, so does a postage stamp represent a country and tells you something about it. When we look at a Dutch stamp, we see the word 'NEDERLAND' and that is the Dutch name for the Netherlands or sometimes called Holland. Holland is actually incorrect, as it refers to only two of the twelve provinces.

Egypt Stamps
A great on-line catalogue from the first to the 1960s.

St. Vincent Stamps
"My collecting specialty is any and everything that is "philatelically" interesting from St. Vincent & the Grenadines (an island chain in the Windward islands portion of the Caribbean; situated south of St. Lucia, west of Barbados and north of Grenada).
Postal history, fakes and more.

New Zealand Antarctic Covers
A virtual collection of covers, with a fair bit of history worked into the mix and some science.
The site starts after the heroic age in a period where the covers are more readily available to collectors and end yearly coverage with the closure of the Scott Base Post Office in 1987

Why Stamp Site of the Week?

This award site has been established to recognise good web site design and interesting philatelic content in sites about stamps. 

Our Criteria: 

Sites must have:

  • Depth of information about the postal history of the stamps, or the design or the items or places pictured,

  • Good graphic design,

  • Good site navigation,

  • Good scans of stamps

- and be -

  • more than just a sales site,

  • more than just a club site.

Dead Links

The nature of the sites we list means relatively few of them have their own domain names. A consequence of this is that the sites change their address quite often to new hosts. 
Your help in reporting dead links would be appreciated.
