Are you a philatelist with a yen for postage that is rare and beautiful? Look no further than Czechoslovakia. Once a powerful arm of the Austro Hungarian Empire and now the gleaming jewel of the Czech Republic, this former sovereign state of Central Europe knew how to design a stamp. There are more than a few rarities among the postage of this historically disputed territory, and you can lay your hands on a perfect vintage specimen by shopping on eBay. You can even enhance and expand your collection with old Czechoslovakian coins and currency. Perhaps you are seeking a stamp boasting the iconic Hradcany Castle, a little piece of history you can show off to friends and relatives. Czech military post for the Siberian Railway is a coveted find—think of how it will enhance your stories of the Old World. Of course, beginners can always opt for one of the 1920 overprints, a story in themselves. Whether you are an Eastern Europe enthusiast of a collector of postage from the world over, beautiful Czechoslovakian stamps only increase in value and esteem. Lay claim to the last artifacts of European snail mail. Slowly but surely, you can finish that collection.
