Inside the July 2019 issue of Stamp Collector:
German states stamps
Prior to unification, Germany was a patchwork of kingdoms, principalities, duchies and free cities, and sixteen of them issued stamps in a plethora of different currencies, as our in-depth guide to German states stamps reveals.
Early Instructions to Postmasters
We turn the clock back to the dawn of adhesive stamps and reveal how the postmasters of the time were informed of the new postal processes and how the new postage stamp worked.
We take a look at Europe's first large-format commemoratives, issued by Portugal in 1894, revealing the story behind the stamps and how you can add the set to your album.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings, we reveal 11 things about the Apollo 11 space mission you might not know, whilst also highlighting the many space-travel stamps you can add to a themed collection.
