Updates and changes

Dedicated to the study of philatelic material pertaining to watercraft on stamps, to sharing knowledge, to encouraging the growth of the hobby and to supporting the preservation of our maritime heritage.


Collecting ships on stamps is an enjoyable way to vicariously travel the Seven Seas or the smallest lake without investing in the cost of a boat. The Ships on Stamps Unit of the American Topical Association would like to show you the many ways that you too can enjoy this most enjoyable of hobbies. This page will tell you something about ourselves and how to begin sailing the seas in command of your own fleet. Welcome aboard!
Changes are coming to this web slowly but surely. If some would volunteer to be the webmaster, the changes would come much more quickly. If you want to help, send an e-mail
