U.N. Conference Stamp Listing
This project attempts to list all stamps and postal stationary issued to honor Conferences and
Meetings of the United Nations, its Agencies, and its Predecessor Organizations by the Country
in which the Conference was held. Predecessor Organizations include the League of Nations, the
Universal Postal Union, the International Labor Organization, and the International Telecommunications
UN-Related Meter and Permit Slogans used in the United
States-Commercial, Philatelic, and NGO's
This project attempts to list all slogan meters and permits used in the United States with
slogans related to the United Nations, its Agencies, and its Programs. Excluded are meters
and permits used officially by the UN or its Agencies. Also excluded are slogans in which
the only UN reference is to an address, such as United Nations Plaza.
UN-Related Slogan Cancels (Machine and Hand) used in the United States
This project attempts to list all slogan hand or machine cancellations used in the United States
with slogans related to the United Nations, its Agencies, and its Programs. This would include Predecessor
Organizations (although none are known at present). Excluded are cancellations used on United Nations stamps
at New York (since October 24, 1951).
United Nations Topicals
United Nations Topicals are stamps issued by most countries around the world to honor the United Nations,
the UN Specialized Agencies and their programs. There are over 13,000 sets and souvenir sheets pertaining
to this topic that have been issued since the founding of the United Nations in 1945.
This project attempts to maintain an up-to-date compilation of these stamps in a database
which is searchable by topic or by country and, eventually, to provide images for most of the material.
United Nations Personalized Sheets
This United Nations Philatelists project aggregates all information currently know regarding the
United Nations personalized sheets. Almost no information has been released by UNPA, pending the
release of an album in 2008. All the information currently known has had to be aggregated by the
collectors of these sheets through research and interviews. There are also numerous varieties and
errors that have been documented that would never make it into any album.
Postal History of ICAO
The Postal History of ICAO provides an unusual approach in the history of the International Civil Aviation Organization
(ICAO); this history is based on the philatelic material, i.e. stamps and covers, related to ICAO. The historical
episodes of this Organization start from the Chicago Convention (1944); however, the predecessors Organizations
and Conferences are full part of this postal history.
Stamp Issues of the United Nations
This project attempts to list all the UN stamps from the UNPA offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna as
well as the UN service stamps from France, the Netherlands and Switzerland in a searchable database.
Eventually it's hoped that images will be included for all of these issues.
UN Conference Post Cards
This project attempts to list all Post Cards issued in conjunction with Conferences and Meetings of the United Nations,
its Agencies, and its Predecessors. A Post Card is a unstamped card with a Picture side and a Message side.
Listed post cards can be official or commercial, but must refer to the Conference itself.
