Buying and Selling

The APS has been helping members exchange stamps since we began in 1886. What started as a basic exchange service has evolved into two ways for collectors to buy and sell philatelic material - through our Circuit Mail Sales and online at

With the APS, you can enjoy receiving material through the mail AND shop online. Both options are accessible from the comfort of home. All material being sold is owned by APS members and is facilitated by an experienced staff.
