US Possessions Stamps

The Stamps and Postal History of US Possessions

We often put the stamps and postal history of the Canal Zone, Cuba, Guam, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Ryukyu Islands and of the United States Virgin Islands in this section as they issued stamps whilst under some form of US administration. For collectors of Hawaii, Cuba, Philippines we would also recommend checking our listings of those countries specifically as the periods of US involvement is small compared to the overall stamp- issuing history of those places and you may find material included in wider collections. It is also worth checking under the Danish West Indies for the revenue stamps issued for the United States Virgin Islands between 1919 and 1934; you never know your luck.

We offer US Possessions stamps, US Possessions stamp collections and complete US Possessions stamp sets, including errors and varieties, proofs, essays, postal history and first day covers for this area.
