About Us og

Americana Stamps is a philatelic auction house dedicated to preserving philatelic history, educating the next generation of collectors, and modernizing the philatelic auction experience.

Our team is founded by collectors who have seamlessly transitioned into the role of auctioneers. We understand the challenges and frustrations that collectors face when participating in auctions, and our mission is to bridge the gap, offering a new and innovative auction platform that addresses these issues.

With decades of collective experience and a deep commitment to the philatelic community, we are dedicated to reshaping the future of stamp collecting by preserving the rich history of philately and making it accessible to collectors of all ages.

Our commitment to providing detailed research, high-quality imaging, and expert insights for our lots sets us apart in the industry.

With a blend of traditional values and innovative approaches, we aim to bridge the gap between the past and the future of philately by creating a curated auction experience that not only showcases the history and stories that each lot has to offer, but also equips prospective bidders with all of the research and relevant information that we found while preparing the lots.

Our Vision

Our vision is to redefine the philatelic auction experience by emphasizing the rich history of each item, ensuring every story is told, and making collecting accessible and engaging for all.

Intentionally Curated

At Americana Stamps, we take a deliberate and thoughtful approach to curating our auctions. We are committed to creating an auction experience that celebrates the significance of all of our lots, regardless of monetary value.

For that reason, we meticulously curate lots, breaking down large collections into smaller, more meaningful lots. Each lot is accompanied by in-depth research, descriptions, and high-resolution images to equip prospective bidders with all the information we have available.

Passionately Presented

At Americana Stamps we believe that every item has a story. Regardless of its market value, we are passionate about showcasing each lot in a way that truly honors its story and its provenance.

When preparing our auctions, we take pride in going above and beyond descriptions that solely provide basic identifications.

We are committed to providing a rich context for each lot that celebrates the item’s history and relevance by providing:

  • Provenance
  • Links to reference articles/research material
  • Links to philatelic certifications
  • Interviews with philatelic experts
  • High-Resolution imagery of ALL aspects of the item

In doing so, it is our intent that our auctions become a “living” census and repository
