Stamps and Postal History Links

[Five Dollar]

Introduction -- The internet has been very helpful to the hobby of stamp and postal history collecting. Over the years, I've found links to interesting web sites that support this great hobby.

My Links

Check (me) Bob Swanson's First World War Postal History web page for links that relate directly to that research, and my new books on domestic military camps of WW I.

The United States has a National Postal Museum in Washington, DC. We have visited, it is a great experience.

Collectors of covers and postal history often need to understand how items were dated. Various nations have over the years, used different calendar systems. These links should help you with everything you would ever want to know about calendars, at The Calendar Zone and Calendars Through the Ages.
