Collecting US Bureau definitives I'm finding that I have a LOT of precancels. I'm struggling with organization. I'm not one to build albums, I prefer to organize on stock pages.

So, do folks organize by City, State, Precancel type....?

I agree with Peter. What ever suits you. My preference is to go alphabetically by State, then city name.

I have seen other collections go alphabetically by city only.

You can make it as complicated as you want. Or not complicated at all.

Peter said it, however you want to do it.

Hi Moyock13

The Precancel Stamp Society has albums and pages that one can download: https://www.precancels.com/free-albums/

Note that there may be some cost even though it says free. In any case check them out. You may want to start collecting Precancels.

I'm kind of the odd man out on organizing precancels. I collect stamps first and foremost, I collect issues in as many formats as I can. Sheet, Plate Bloc, P#Single, single, etc. mint, used, booklet panes, coil strips depending on the issue and how it was made available.

I don't concentrate on cancels but I have a huge collection of precancels that I have organized in my albums by issue, in the pages immediately following that issue in my albums. They are organized by issue, then state and city. Integrated all the way through my albums Likewise with Perfins by issue.
