NETHERLANDS STAMPS

The Stamps and Postal History of the Netherlands

Netherlands stamps – Compared to many of its European neighbours, the Netherlands began the issue of postage stamps late, therefore 1852 before the first issues of Netherlands stamps appeared. A set of stamps featuring King William III were produced in 5c, 10c and 15c denominations. However, because of the number of different printing plates used, a multitude of varieties to intrigue the specialist collector exist. In addition, the Netherlands are also well known for the production of many semi-postal issues. This sees some of their face value diverted to charitable causes.
