?THANK GOD NOT EVERYTHING PRINTED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT LOSES VALUE?
Right now you can buy stamp from any post office in the united States at face value. You can buy as many as you like. Then, if you have bought them correctly, you can turn around and sell them for more than you paid for them.
All it takes is a little know-how. Every year the U.S. Postal Service comes out with 30 to 40 new stamps and about half a dozen of these stamps will go way up in value.
Stamp collection is one of the safest and at the same time one of the most exciting investment areas available today.
But is there any real money in all this? A lot of people don?t think so. A lot of people think that stamps are
?kid stuff? when compared to stocks and bonds or commodities.
A lot of people are dead wrong. Here is some proof that you can check out for yourself.
In 1967, the post office issued a 1-1/4 cent stamp called the ?Gallatin.? Since regular postage at that time was 5 cent (remember way back then?) you needed four of these stamps to mail a letter. 7 years later, a block of four of these stamps was selling for $12.00 to $14.00 . That?s an appreciation of, roughly, 25, 900%. A thousand dollars invested in this manner would have returned more than a quarter of a million dollars in just seven years!
In 1972 , the 2 cent cape Hatteras stamp was issued. This is an unusual stamp. It is actually a series of four stamps that, when placed in a block, make a complete picture. It took four of them on an envelope to make up the regular 8 cent postage in effect at that time. Just one year later , a block of four of these stamps was selling for up to $5.00. A thousand dollars invested in this stamp would have grown to $62,500.00 in twelve months.
How?s that for appreciation?
As you can see, properly selected stamps are a dynamite investment!
And it is, perhaps, the safest of all investments because when you buy new stamps at face value they can never be worth less than what you paid for them.
The only way they can go is up.
Stamps have a lot going for them no matter what happens to the economy. Not many people know it but you can probably make more money by investing in stamps (and make it faster) than you can in real estate, stocks, commodities, silver, gold or anything else you can name.
