Costa Rica: pics of stamps – lots of pictures


pics of stamps

Are you that kind of philatelic enthusiast that likes to surf the web looking for pics of stamps from time to time?

Well, here I am to help you! I know that looking at stamps can be hypnotizing. I know that once you start, you’ll leave your computer until you saw the last one.

I’ve been a Costa Rica stamp collector for over 20 years. And i’m pretty sure I never get tired of looking at stamps.

That’s why Estampillascr’s Facebook page has more than 1,500 pics of stamps…Costa Rica stamps. It doesn’t matter what you are looking for, we have plenty! We divided them in several sections, so it would be easier for you to browse them.

You can browse our albums of surface mail stamps, air mail stamps, semi postal stamps, Christmas stamps and proofs. If you like cancellations on stamps, there’s an album too. Also we have albums for postal history and postcards. At last but not least the “errors” albums will take your breath away.

If by any chance you don’t find the stamp you were looking for, don’t panic! Just let me know and I will help you finding it.

Also, you can view the rarest and most expensive Costa Rica stamps from the Frederick R. Mayer collection auction.


Costa Rica Stamps – Guanacaste overprints: 2 price changes for Catalog 2018

The Scott Catalog is out now! on the 2018 edition there are some price changes worth mentioning, but for now we’ll focus on the Guanacaste overprints and on 2 stamps in particular.

Guanacaste Overprints Scott 12

First, Scott 12 (G2 overprint type with red ink) that on 2017’s catalog had a price of $1.000, so anyone that bought that stamp -for the catalog price or lower- before the new catalog came out made a great investment. Why? Because it’s price doubled! Yes, you read it right. Now it has a $2.000 price. 100% Y/Y ROI: that’s a wise way of investing your money!

 

Guanacaste Overprints Scott 24

Second, Scott 24 (G3 overprint type with black ink) that also had a catalog price of $1.000 and if it’s true that its price didn’t increase as much as the Scott 12, had a -not bad at all- increase of $500 for a 2018 price of $1.500.
