Stamp collecting, or philately, has been one of the most popular hobbies in the last 2 or 3 centuries. By the 1880’s, there were around twenty-five thousand stamp collectors in the United States alone. Today the hobby is still one of the most common. Stamp collectors are in the business of promoting stamp collecting for people of all ages. They trade stamps, sell them, buy them, have conventions and do everything they can to recruit more collectors. They start clubs and organizations such as the APA, The American Philatelic Association, which has been around since 1886, and do everything they can to acquire more knowledge about stamps from around the world.
Cherrystone Auctions has one of the biggest auction houses in New York City. They’ve been in business for almost fifty years and have auctions every six to eight weeks. Cherrystone publishes catalogs detailing the lots for their auctions. Collectors can attend the auctions in New York City in person, or can go online and use their online auction system on their website, https://www.cherrystoneauctions.com/live.
Cherrystone’s site has all information needed for online bidding, from the online bid form, ways to bid, and bidding increments, to symbol keys needed to understand lots and listings of the auction agents. If the buyer is unable to attend, there are auction agents that Cherrystone provides, that can act on the collector’s behalf. There are several auction agents to choose from, including agents with different levels of experience and knowledge.
Collectors can also sell stamps by auction and this has been known to be one of the most profitable ways to relieve a collector of their collection. It’s also one of the most convenient ways to sell, being that you can do it from the comfort of your own home and you don’t need a vast knowledge of stamps or the current market to do it.
