What we collect!
What we collect!

Stamporama began with 6 members in January 1996 with one idea -- trading duplicates among the members. Today Stamporama has 867 members from 44 states, 11 Provinces and Territories of Canada, 6 states of Australia and 28 total countries worldwide. We have members from 8 to 88, whose interests cover the entire range of stamps and stamp collecting, from cancellations to Back of the Book. We also study and collect covers, FDCs, rates, usages, routes, ephemera, Maximum cards, seals, body bags and crash covers, the machines creating the cancellations and postmarks, spray-ons and other transit markings not technically cancellations, history behind the man sending the stamp, and so much more. Our members include beginners to experts, and the best part is that everyone is here to help each other.

Although we are still growing, I think of Stamporama as a family of stamp collectors. I feel that every member means a lot to me and I will always be grateful that I started this great club!"

... Jerry Abern (1932-2003), Stamporama Founder.


StampoRama Adds a New Search Function

A new Search function has been added to the Left Navigation panel on the homepage that allows you to do a global search of all the data on the StampoRama website.  Clicking on the Search link takes you to the Search page where you can do a search of all the StampoRama data collected by Google and a similar search of all the data collected by Microsoft(Bing).  We have included both search options because the search results between the two do come back with different results sometimes.

StampoRama has completed the first full row on the Penny Page of  Penny Black stamps!

The StampoRama club members have combined together, pooling the Penny Black stamps that they have in their collections, in order to build a full sheet of Penny Blacks.  When the Penny Blacks were printed, each stamp in the sheet was identified by it's row and column position being printed on  the stamp in the bottom corners.  Recently one of our members, who goes by the username of "rtvstamps" added a recent acquisition, a Penny Black "IC" to the Penny Page, completing that row.  That is our first full row.  We have many more to go. :-)
