LIVE Auction

Coming Soon

Stay Tuned

We are excited to announce our 2024 Auction is coming soon, debuting as our first auction on our new auction platform.

Our vision is to redefine the philatelic auction experience by providing exceptional high-quality imagery, sharing our detailed research and references within lot descriptions, and making collecting accessible and engaging for all.

We are committed to providing a rich context for each lot that celebrates the item’s history and relevance by providing:

N

Provenance

N

Links to reference articles/research material

N

Links to philatelic certifications

N

Interviews with philatelic experts

N

High-Resolution imagery of ALL aspects of the item

In doing so, it is our intent that this auction, and those to follow, will become a “living” census and repository of references to engage, educate, and excite collectors for years to come.

About us

Americana Stamps is a philatelic auction house dedicated to preserving philatelic history, educating the next generation of collectors, and modernizing the philatelic auction experience. Our commitment to detailed research, high-quality imaging, and expert insights sets us apart in the industry.

Our team is founded by collectors who have seamlessly transitioned into the role of auctioneers. We understand the challenges and frustrations that collectors face when participating in auctions, and our mission is to bridge the gap, offering a new and innovative auction platform that addresses these issues.

Passionately Presented

At Americana Stamps, we take a deliberate and thoughtful approach to curating our auctions. We are committed to creating an auction experience that celebrates the significance of all of our lots, regardless of monetary value.

For that reason, we meticulously curate lots, breaking down large collections into smaller, more meaningful lots. Each lot is accompanied by in-depth research, descriptions, and high-resolution images to equip prospective bidders with all the information we have available.

Intentionally Curated

When preparing our auctions, we take pride in going above and beyond descriptions that solely provide basic identifications.

We are committed to providing a rich context for each lot that celebrates the item’s history and relevance by providing:

  • Provenance
  • Links to reference articles/research material
  • Links to philatelic certifications
  • Interviews with philatelic experts
  • High-Resolution imagery of ALL aspects of the item

In doing so, it is our intent that our auctions become a “living” census and repository of references to engage, educate, and excite collectors for years to come.

Meticulously Captured

Our commitment to preserving philatelic heritage has driven us to redefine how images are captured and presented in the auction setting.

Every lot, regardless of its value, is presented with a suite of high-resolution images to accurately showcase what is being sold. This includes photos of all items contained in the lot, and close-up details of postmarks and other aspects of the lot that prospective bidders might want to evaluate closely.

By capturing such high-quality imagery, perspective bidders can closely inspect lots online and bid in confidence
