To see some rare collection
is the study and
collection of stamps. These includes the design, production and use of
stamps. It can be developed into a learning hobby irrespective of whether or
not the person is a collector of these items. The
comes from the greek words
which meant tax exemption or tax immunity. The stamp exempted, not the
sender of the letter, but the recipient of the letter, from paying a mailing
fee or tax
Philatelists are stamp collectors. Some collect as an investment. They want stamps to sell and trade, but you can collect stamps simply for the joy of it. Stamps are either Commemorative (special) issued on special events or Definitive issued for day to day postal needs. Each postage stamp is a carefully designed piece of miniature art which speaks evocatively about the subject depicted on it.
