After a long hiatus, I'm returning to stamp collecting. This time around, I'm limiting my collection to United States, Scott # 702-1612, all MNH, VF-XF, with no defects (e.g., fingerprints on the gum). I'm looking for nice stamps and will be happy to pay for what I get, but I won't pay extra for "graded" stamps or "jumbo" margins, etc. Can anyone suggest dealers with whom I might do business by mail, dealers with quality stamps?

Thank you!

Bill

Create a search string on eBay and check it once a week.

Tfhere is a website called Stamps2Go that I've used on several occasions. The prices are fair and the selection is good.

Apart from eBay, I usually walk onto the stampshows around my place. Takes a couple of shows to identify good dealers (good attitude + price + stock).
Once done, I follow up with them via emails and start filling the gaps.
If the dealer is good, they will add excellent discounts too and notify you with upcoming events, pricelists etc.

Unfortunately for me, the nearest stamp shows are a four-hour drive away.

If you don't mind amassing a few duplicates in the process, it's worth a look at the cheaper end of the auction world. Most auctions in the UK contain a range of lots of "modern" (which to me means from 1945-50 onwards). They often break out those that are still usable for postage (from 1970 here, but not an issue in the US), which is what most of this material seems to be sold as. And unmounted mint is the norm, if that's your thing.
