Wow, I never counted before. I have 9 manufactured and an additional 16 that I have made with binders and stock pages inside acid free page protectors. I do have 5 stock books too.

Went out and looked at the bookcase and I really do have a addiction.
There were 36 White Ace (collections for the children when old enough), 8 Davo hingeless (personal collection), 2 Harris, 35 stockbooks(US accumulation), 4 topical (triangles,odd shapes), 2 White Ace (a personal set for definitive), 1 White Ace (Marshal,Palua,Micro), 2 binders (first flight covers), 2 Scott specialized (Central and South America), 3 sheet albums, 5 loose leaf (items to be sorted), 1 loose leaf (S.S. sheets).
The previous are my collection. Now if I go into my office and start counting the albums to be broken down, that would be another ball of wax. Yes, I have reached that point in ones collection to start to thin some out.

I have 7 German related (Scott Specialized), 2 Guatemala, 1 topical, 1 new U.S., and 1 miscellaneous. The vast majority of my stamps and covers are not in albums however. I keep them inventoried and aranged neatly in envelopes by Scott number in the red Amos stock boxes.

I don't use albums at all.
About 24 years ago, I got fed up with shifting stamps in albums so I had these wooden drawers made up. They kept me going till recently, when I ran out of space I used cut down A4 paper boxes.
The stamps are mounted on to the cards and filed by country and SG catalogue # and also stored on Excel spreadsheet. The tin on the top shelf contains swaps. The album is used only to help sort.









Downside is, it's not easy to show someone your collection. (not that I have to do that very often)

Is there a difference between an album and a stockbook? Because in German an album can be a stockbook as well and I don't know the English term for "Vordruckalbum".

I think there is. In the Netherlands it is the same as in Germany, an album can be both. But using the usual definition here, I would have four real albums (Davo hingeless) and about 30 stockbooks. Apart from that another 20 for the duplicates and trading material.

Steve, that is one of the most unique methods of a stamp collection I have ever seen, is it possible because you are also a coin collector ??? In any case..it does not take up much room..i would hate to have to show you my "duplicates? stacks of plastic storage boxes a yard high !!

Steve I use tins to store unsorted stamps. IMHO stockbooks can be used as albums too.

I don't know how many stamps that I have but the kilos have added both large numbers and doubles -triples -fourths -etc. LOL

Wow. What an interesting exercise. There are at least 31 volumes. 16 cover albums for Naval covers and a bunch of others that I don't collect but, can't free myself of. There are 4 Scott International housing Part I & IIA. There are 4 small G&K binders for collections of Aden, Gibraltar, and Argentina. There are 2 G&K style binders with just extra miscellaneous pieces e.g. Souvenir sheets and blocks that don't fit on 102 cards. There is one for my Design Error collection. There are 3 old Regent Worldwide albums and a Harris US album. And, I'm looking at 8 large Albums waiting to broken down. And there are 21 "Red Boxes". Whew.
