Thailand stamp collecting is part of the overall Asian collecting genre. When stamp collectors choose to purchase Asian and Asian inspired collectibles, they are often looking for a style, grace and design unlike any other stamps created. The articles will vary greatly from pieces representing hotel chains to pieces representing the Asian government. Pieces listed for sale will be sold as either individual stamps or as sheets. The sheets are often offered in the same condition as purchased from the postal service.
Postage from Thailand is also offered in collection lots. These lots include sheets and individual stamps all geared toward a specific time period or historical event in Thailand. The collection lots will contain many different collectibles and are a perfect starting point for the beginning collector who wants to populate their collection with a large number of themed selections. Stamp collection lots will often include various different grades of stamp as opposed to the entire lot falling into one grade.
When stamp collecting it is important to notice the grade of the selections being sold. Some are sold as Very Fine or Extremely Fine which means the piece is in perfect condition. Other grades will range from Fine to Poor. Some stamps are so very rare that even in Poor condition the articles are very valuable. The grade of the item is not always indicative of the end value of the stamp. It is always important to verify the authenticity of the stamp before making that final purchase.
