CSA Postal History, Stamps, and Currency For Sale


Here's the section where I am offering items for sale. After all, this is how I currently make my living. I must sell an item or two now and then to stay in business and to keep this website running. I hope when browsing the listings that you will find something for your collection.


This Confederate States Stamps and Postal History dealership is now strictly Internet. Printed listings of the CSA stamps, covers, and currency are no longer offered by mail. The printed listings were simply too large, too labor intensive, and too expensive to produce with too little return from non Internet using mail buyers to justify continuing the practice. The vast majority of collectors are now well versed in using the Internet. The time has come to make the change to a totally Internet dealership. Please check the "Show Section" of this website to see which shows I will be attending as I usually attend all the Confederate Stamp Alliance Conventions and Meetings as well as a number of major shows throughout the year.

These on-line CSA Net Price Lists are updated frequently by removing the items as soon as they are no longer available. New material is posted to these listings on a continuous basis as it comes in and is prepared for sale. Next to the links below are the dates when new material was last added to that particular listing. In order to take advantage of newly listed material, it is recommended that this website be checked on a periodic and regular basis. One never knows what I may come up with as I am constantly on the lookout for good quality material. Newly listed material very often sells quite quickly after posting.

Before examining the Net Price Lists, please review the "Sales Policies and How to Order" section. All images of the stamps, covers, and currency are best viewed with Microsoft Internet Explorer. Firefox for some reason does not show the table border colors. The images should all be sharp and clear. If they appear a bit fuzzy, particularly on AOL, check your Internet Browser settings and make sure that "Never Compress Graphics" is checked.

Images of ALL the covers, stamps, and currency items on these listings are available for immediate viewing. These images can be easily accessed within the documents.

CSA STAMP and COVER DATABASE SEARCH

The CSA Postal History and CSA Stamp Databases are fully searchable. If you are looking for a cover or a stamp related to a specific city or town, or perhaps a cover with your family name on the address, or perhaps a military address or endorsement related to a specific unit, then just enter your keyword(s) below. Click CSA SEARCH for a short tutorial and explanation (opens in new window) of how best to use the Search Engine with my databases. Those who actually read the short search tutorial and follow the guidelines will have much better success with their searches. The search will show results in the CSA Postal History, CSA Stamp, and CSA Currency databases. The USA Modern Mint Stamps on my secondary website are NOT included in this local search engine. Search results appear in a new window or separate tab. This is a new search engine but is very similar to my previous search engine. For a more detailed or more refined search, use the "Advanced Search" option which also opens in a new window or separate tab.

Collector's Guide to Confederate Philately Second Edition

-- Guidebook Order Form -- 

4 JUN 2012 -- NAPEX 2012 -- Gold Medal and Grand Award
19 AUG 2012 -- APS StampShow 2012 -- Gold Medal
18 NOV 2012 -- CHICAGOPEX 2012 -- Gold Medal

16 JUN 2012 -- The Second Edition of the Guidebook was noted to have several typographical errors in the Secession Table presented on Page 7 and Page 423. For a copy of the current Secession Table which can be printed out for reference, click the link below (opens in a new window and requires Adobe Acrobat). This is Appendix A Page 423 (corrected and up-to-date with the typos removed) in the Second Edition Guidebook.

-- Secession Table -- 

20 OCT 2012 -- The Collector's Guide to Confederate Philately Second Edition is an explanatory narrative of the story of Confederate Philately completely illustrated in full color and is an excellent complement to the new Confederate States of America Catalog and Handbook of Stamps and Postal History. The new catalog is now available for ordering through the Confederate Stamp Alliance website. (Update 7 APR 2013 -- The new CSA catalog is now sold out and out-of-print. Copies may still be available occasionally on the secondary market.)

10 DEC 2012 -- The new CSA Catalog recently published has changed the Secession Table to reflect only 2 MAR 1861 as the secession date for Texas with a three day Independent State period. Texas history and Texas tradition have long accepted 1 FEB 1861 as the actual date of Texas secession and will continue to do so. It needs to be pointed out that the change in the Texas secession date in the new catalog with the resulting radical change in the Independent State period was done over the objections of the Texas postal historians.

8 JUN 2013 -- Dynamic Duo -- Read what Randy Neil, editor of the Confederate Philatelist and the ASD&C magazine, had to say about the two new major publications on Confederate philately -- Collector's Guide to Confederate Philately Second Edition and the new CSA Catalog -- in an editorial published in the April-June 2013 issue of the Confederate Philatelist.

In order to have CSA material to sell, I must first buy it. I am always on the lookout to buy good quality Confederate stamps, covers and currency.

If you have any Confederate material to sell (individual items, multiple items, or an entire collection), please contact me with your asking price. I will pay a fair price for good quality material. The emphasis is on "good quality material." Significantly damaged material and "Spacefiller" type material is not desired. Please be advised that under no circumstances will a valuation or an offer be made on Confederate material sight unseen. An offer can only be made after the material has actually been examined in hand for authenticity and condition.




We are major buyers of Confederate States of America Stamps, Postal History, and Currency. To see our full page color advertisement which appears in various publications, use the link below.

I  have a secondary web site with its own separate domain strictly for the sale of mint modern USA stamps from the year 1929 through 2000 www.jlkstamps.com . Many collectors have told me that there is a need for such a site as it can be difficult to acquire odd individual USA stamps to fill holes in a modern collection. If you need to fill a few holes in your USA collection or would just like to visit my secondary USA site, please use the direct link below.

From time to time I offer philatelic items (both Confederate and non-Confederate) for sale on E-Bay Auctions. Click below for a listing of my current E-Bay Auction Lots.

-- E-Bay Auction Lots --

Of late there has been much publicity both on the Internet and in Linn's Stamp News concerning various Internet Philatelic Auction Scams. I am asked frequently by collectors who do not understand these scams and have little or no experience with the Internet Auctions to explain some of these scams and also to give suggestions about how to protect oneself from these scams. Many collectors are understandably apprehensive about bidding in Internet Philatelic Auctions. I have therefore prepared a short page explaining some of these auction scams with suggestions about how to bid as safely as possible in such an environment. I hope this will be of some assistance.
