About Us

County Stamp Center was established in 1953 in White Plains, New York. For over 20 years, Nathan Birman and his wife managed an open stamp store in White Plains, New York, where customers would congregate to view collections, buy new issues, and have their collections appraised and sold.

In 1976, County Stamp moved to Annapolis, Maryland and expanded its mail order business by concentrating on selling worldwide newly issued stamps and filling want lists for older and rarer issues.

Today, County Stamp continues to service new issue subscribers, and buys and sells collections. We are proud of our reputation for fairness and honesty in our dealings with hundreds of clients worldwide. We are lifetime members of the American Philatelic Society and Charter Members of the National Stamp Dealers Association. We travel extensively to appraise and buy larger collections.

When asked what was our largest purchase, we answer it was undoubtedly the collection of one of our former clients who tragically perished during Hurricane Katrina (August 2005). We worked closely with his relatives and estate to properly appraise the collection and arrange the logistics to ship his extensive holdings to Maryland.




While we have grown substantially the last five years, we pride ourselves on the personal attention we afford all our customers. We are especially grateful to the many loyal customers who have maintained their relationship with County Stamp since the early days in New York.

We help promote stamp collecting working with local schools and charitable organizations. We are always pleased to introduce new collectors to the hobby and assist all our customers with their stamp collecting needs.
