Looking for Lighthouse album pages for the German area- almost anything at present.

Either regular or hingeless although I actually prefer regular for earlier pages as I hinge older material.

I live in the Central US, so this 'want' would perhaps be limited to North America.

Just let me know what you have and condition, thanks.

why wouldn't you buy from a source such as Amazon as an example?

I'm guessing cost. Much more cost effective to buy a second-hand set rather than new.

Do a search on Amazon for them and you will know the answer. I almost never find any pages on there for anything other than US or stockpages.

Indeed. I still recall wandering up to the counter in Gibbons with a pack of thirty or so unpriced Lighthouse leaves for Czechoslovakia covering five years from the 1970s, and wandering away rather more quickly when I was quoted, near as dammit, 100. Conversely, I've picked up lots of Lighthouse material - printed albums, binders, blank leaves - for relative peanuts in auctions.

I know what stamps1962 means. It's very difficult to find certain items on auction sites. Especially specific used albums. I recently gave up finding my next albums on eBay.

I am ready to build up my US Revenues collection, and I've been checking over hundreds of albums on eBay for the past month. Looking for what I would prefer -- used (less costly) Palo hingeless US Revenue albums -- proved exasperating. New investment is >US$1200. But I found not a single album for sale! That tells me they are a) rare and b) held on to by owners.
Today I ordered Scott's Part 1 & Part 2 US Revenue pages from a Revenue dealer in Pennsylvania. They will grace my old Scott Specialty 2-post binder. And it looks like I'll be learning about which mounts are sized for US revenues.

Which leads me to a question (Hey revenuecollector, I hope you check this out!)...
Is there a sizing guide for US Revenues? I love the top-loading clear Howid mounts, but which ones will I need?
