Foreign Stamp Identifier

The purpose of the Foreign Stamp Identifier is to help you determine what country a particular stamp is from, and how it should be listed in your album.

How to use the Identifier

Pick out a symbol, word or sign on the stamp you want to identify.   Find it in the index, and you will see the correct country’s name.
If you do not find the first words you look up, keep trying different ones until you find an indexing word.
Some stamps – Ryukyu Islands, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and others – are printed entirely in Oriental or Arabic characters, and cannot be indexed the same way.  To identify these stamps, see the illustrated section at the end of the regular listings.
