Collection Plan

Despite our large, existing collection, the National Postal Museum has an extensive collection plan that includes:

  • A comprehensive specialized collection of 19th Century carrier and local stamps
  • A comprehensive specialized collection of Confederate stamps (1861-1865) and Confederate Postmaster Provisional stamps
  • Colonial postal road maps, tax stamps and handstamps
  • Female letter carrier uniforms
  • Pony Express saddle and Bible
  • Sea Post service mailbags (1845-1915) and letterboxes (1900-1915)

If you have any of the above and would like to contribute them to the National Postal Museum, please see: Donating
