Big Blue 1840-1940

Big Blue 1840-1940 – The classic period of collecting – the 1st 100yrs of stamps.

The Scott International Postage Stamp Album in four volumes offers a quality pre-printed album for building a collection of the 1st 100yrs of stamps. Often referred to as The Classic Period. The albums are referred to as The Big Blue.

The albums include 315 countries (stamp issuing authorities) which together are represented by some 34,700 spaces.

The ideal catalogue reference for the Big Blue is the Scott Classic Specialised Catalogue of Stamps and Covers of the World 1840-1940.

Filling the Spaces – A Big Blue 1840-1940 Blog

The stamp collector Josiah Lilly once said that there were 100,000 postage stamps he wanted for his collection and he succeeded in acquiring 77,000. A considerably easier target is the 35,000 of the more common stamps from 1840-1940 contained in the Scott Blue International Album.

This blog records a collectors progress on filling the Big Blue, provides general information about Classic era philately and hopefully encourages other “Blue” collectors.
