Stamps and Postal History

This is one of my best-selling areas. I take great care to distinguish genuine, reprint and forged material especially for the period 1917 24. Recently, for example, I have seen a number of official stampless covers from this period with genuine stamps added and forged cancellations. Beware!

Popular with collectors are my reference collections where I present examples of genuine, reprint and forged types for issues of the 1919 - 23 period. These collections cost between 100 and 500 per issue (Framed Z, unframed Z, rouble surcharges, First Yessayan, Second Yessayan, Yerevan pictorials)

I also stock Armenian covers and cards of all periods. These sell quickly and you need to register with me to ensure a supply

I have an excellent stock of 1918 25 Fiscal documents with scarce and rare Revenue stamps.
