Stamps-On-Approval Trading
(no money is involved)

Explanation of How it Works 

I prefer to limit this type of trading to my trading friends who live in the United States, if possible, because of the large numbers of stamps
being sent back and forth and the cost of postage. 

If you don't live in the United States, not to worry because I love trading stamps with collectors from all over the world.  Write me.  

One person starts by sending a selection of duplicate stamps to another interested trader, who receives stamps, examines them and keeps only those stamps he/she wants or needs.  The unwanted stamps are returned to the sender, along with a selection of duplicate stamps from the receiver.  The Trading Form is included with each trade, so that both parties can keep track of totals.

It's based on "stamps-on-approval" type trading. A fun way to trade, without either party accumulating unwanted dups because both partners are allowed to keep only the stamps that are wanted.

You can trade 1:1 or you can also trade by value, or both methods at same time if you want.  Any stamp with a value of 50 cents or below would be in the 1:1 trade category and any stamp with a value of $1.00  would be counted as 2 stamps.  For example, if you had a stamp with catalogue value of $5.00, you would need to receive 10 stamps in exchange for it.  It's up to the individual mailing the stamps to determine the value of his/her own stamps before sending.

Two weeks between trades is the ideal, but longer is okay if partners keep each other informed by email.

If you are interested in trading this method with me, I would be happy to hear from you.  Just mention that you are interested in starting a Stamps-On-Approval Type Trade with me.  I don't mind sending first.
