There are various ways to collect Christmas Seals. Many collectors just collect one seal from each year, while others collect the seals yearly, in the format, as required by the descriptions in the Scott, or Green's Catalogs.
This post will discuss collecting Christmas Seals in full sheets, by the decade, one sheet for each year, without concern for printer's marks, perforations, or other factors. As your collection grows, you can easily branch out, and include sheets by printer's mark for each year, or concentrate on other characteristics of the seals.
The Christmas Seal Sheet Collections are available in the Christmas Seal Category of our store.
An example collection would be that of the Christmas Seals that were issued from 1940-49. The 1940-49 Christmas Seals, sheets are F-VF, full gum, MNH. There are ten (10) full sheets of 100, one (1) for each year: 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948, and 1949. This is an excellent and economical way to begin or enlarge a Christmas Seal sheet collection.
Another eample would be the Christmas Seal Collection for 1950-59. The 1950-59 Christmas Seals, ten (10) F-VF, full gum, MNH, full sheets of 100. One (1) sheet for each year: 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, and 1959. This is would also be an excellent and economical way to begin or enlarge a Christmas Seal collection.
Further, another example is with a larger collection from 1932-81. The 1932-81 Christmas Seals, contains fifty (50) F-VF, full gum, MNH, full sheets of 100. One sheet for each year: 1932 to 1981, fifty years of mint Christmas Seals. This is also an excellent and economical way to begin or enlarge a Christmas Seal sheet collection.
