Savvy Collectors Buy Their New Issues at Face Value Prices

By May 22, 2011

Follow me on:

By the time you walk into a dealer's shop to pick up new issues that were released only days or weeks earlier, you are going to pay a hefty mark-up of anywhere from 25% to double face value for stamps you could have purchased at face value price.

So it's good to find an agency that allows you to do some one stop shopping, without having to run all over the world (at worst letting your fingers do the running across the keyboard connected to your virtual world) to pick up the new issues you need.

A good one to check out, that includes Great Britain, Israel, Channel Islands, Portugal, Greenland and more is World Online Philatelic Agency (WOPA). You can't beat it for convenience, and with its stamps at face value, you'll never beat their price.

I love the WOPA Stamp website. Made a purchase and received it perfectly shortly after and more importantly paid FACE VALUE only for my stamp purchases. Great service from WOPA and highly recommended http://www.wopa-stamps.com

Thanks for the suggestion. A very convenient way and inexpensive to buy my new issues. Wish even more countries were available
