The stamp collecting information links in the first link section below and in the column to the right are to other websites that this website has mutual link exchanges with. There are also sections below for visitor submitted geographical links and for postal authorities (under construction).
Many of these affiliated sites offer additional information on collecting, additional philatelic information links, and country specific collecting subjects that I have not yet been able to integrate into this website.
I know, from researching philatelic information for some of the country collecting articles I've written in this website that detailed philatelic information is very difficult to locate on the web. Hopefully, the link section below, in the future, will offer much needed additional information to that already provided in my site for anyone wishing to learn about stamp collecting.
If the visitor has a stamp collecting website or
even a retail stamp site and would like a mutual link exchange with
www.stamp-collecting-world.com, please contact me (on the Contact Form).
I will then verify your site, and if it is appropriate, I will add the
link for YOUR website to the link section below.
I have also added a new section for Visitor Submitted Links below. If the visitor has a favorite local link that they feel would help other collectors in their geographic area, feel free to submit them, and I will include them in the new section below.
