About Michael Schweitzer

I have been a stamp collector since 1959 and a stamp dealer since 1979. At any stamp bourse or show, I sell and buy worldwide individual stamps, complete sets and collections. My stock ranges from the United States, British colonies, French colonies, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. 

I am a member of the American Philatelic Society and the Midwest Stamp Dealers Association. I am also a member of the Calumet Stamp Club and President of the Indiana Stamp Club. I graduated from Ball State University and am a retired Boilermaker. My wife and I are members of the American Topical Association.

I use Scott catalog numbers and grade all stamps along with any flaws as I price my stamps. I have over 180 red boxes with stamps and stamp sets of which 32 are divided by topical categories. My stamps are divided by white cards for mint stamps and blue cards for used stamps. I have larger boxes that hold about 10,000 souvenir sheets. I also sell collections.

My stamps are usually sold from 50% to 70% of Scott catalog values based on conditions. My collections sell between between 25% and 50% of their catalog value. I also give an additional amount off depending on the amount purchased.

I accept want lists. I do not publish lists of stamps for sale and I do not sell any supplies. At stamp shows I attend I do accept credit cards and online I accept payments through Paypal.
