Links to FICC members sites.
Philatelic societies and clubs.
- First Issues Collectors Club has a membership application conveniently located right here. Shameless, but it may work!
- American Philatelic Society is the place to go for stamp news, links and much more.
- IPDA is the abbreviation for the Internet Philatelic Dealers Association. Stamps on the 'net, isn't that what you are interested in?
- ISPP or International Society for Portuguese Philately, have a nice site. Go see.
- MEPSI or Mexico Elmhurst Philatelic Society International, will start you on collecting Mexico.
Forgeries, fakes and counterfeits.
- Bill Claghorn's Comparative Forgery Identification Site is a must visit for anybody wanting to know about forgeries. Plenty of images to compare to, for almost every country imaginable.
- American Philatelic Society has an expertizing service. Here's the starting point.
- Stamp Forgery Links is a collection of links to "Sites with information on forged stamps and on expertising", as they say. It is quite extensive. The main site is Philatelic experts - it is also well worth a look.
General interest and tools.
| After School Care Programs is a charity based in El Paso County, Colorado. One of their study groups, mentored by Courtney Phillips, found and enjoyed the FICC web site and recommended this site at HomeAdvisor which contains advice on stamp collecting and links to other useful resources. Thanks, Courtney's Kids.
- Lee's Stamp Listopedia is a huge collection of useful information. See for yourself.
- Stamp Yellow Pages is a directory of web sites ordered by category. A good place to start looking.
- StampSites is a kind of search engine for stamp sites. Give it a spin.
