Alderfer Auction - Stamps


Where Stamp Collectors and Dealers Meet to Bid on Rarities and Common Classics

As a leading stamp auction house, our sales showcase the full scope of worldwide collectibles – from great philatelic rarities to popular common issues. We attract bidders seeking treasures for their collections as well as inventory for their dealer stock.

Specialized collectors pursue elusive items like rare first day covers, unusual postmarks, scarce color varieties, and one-of-a-kind oddities. Astute investors evaluate our foreign and domestic offerings for hidden gems primed for appreciation. And casual hobbyists bid across eras and regions, hoping to land affordable lots to expand their holdings.

Yet our community is bonded not solely by prized trophies, but by a shared passion that bridges generations. We create an inclusive atmosphere welcoming both distinguished experts and enthusiastic generalists. Anyone can experience the thrill of going home with fresh finds for their albums.

As our next sale approaches, we invite serious consignors and casual collectors alike to engage in our global marketplace. Join us as we write the next chapter in the enduring story of stamps.
