Find a Stamp On the Web

We’ve all been there – you search for something online and you can’t find it.  Maybe it’s a certain stamp, a specific cancellation or a FDC. Or perhaps you dream of discovering a unique new piece or finding a great bargain.  You know it’s out there, but where?!

There is a new multi-lingual Internet search tool available. It’s called Wydly.  I’ve placed a link to its website below.

Please feel free to try it and let me know about your experiences.  Webmaster

Should this tool become of value to our members we plan to enhance this section with usage tips and member experiences.
