Colnect Catalog Passed 500,500 Stamps!

We are very proud to announce that the Stamps catalog has now surpassed 500,500 unique items, making it one of the 2 largest catalogs on Colnect and one of the top largest Stamp catalogs in existence today!
As the stamps category is a veteran branch of collectibles, particular care is given to the quality and accuracy of the catalog by the wonderful Stamps team, headed by the coordinators Guido Fußhöller [footy68] and Klaus Jochimsen [Lola22] and supported by so many great editors and contributors.


"Bogdan I Vodă" Stamp from the "650 Years Since the Foundation of the State of Moldavia" 2009 Moldova series, new on the Colnect Stamps catalog
Images are an essential and important part of the catalog. Stamp images have been greatly improved on the catalog due to a great effort lead by the stamp coordinators. Tens of thousands of stamp images have been added to stamps with missing images, thousands more stamps with low quality images have been replaced with high resolution images, making the catalog that much more beautiful, detailed and convenient.

"Tingia carbonica" Stamp from the 2004 North Korean Fossils series, new on the Colnect catalog
New standards for quality of stamp images have been enforced which have also significantly raised the level of the images on the catalog, both in resolution of images and in the presentation style of the stamps. You are welcome to browse through the results and see all the great new images up close using the zoom in feature.
"Kim reading at desk" Stamp from the 2004 North Korean series "40th Ann. of Workers' Party of Korea by Kim Jong Il", new on the Colnect catalog
This milestone is coming a long way from the previous milestone of 300303 Stamps. A lot of effort and thought have been put into the catalog, you can follow up on the progress on the Stamps Forum.
