IFSDA, the International Federation of Stamp Dealers' Associations, announced a web site in March 1999. However, the URL appears to have been changed from http://www.ifsda.com. Please advise if you know the new URL. It included lists of its member national associations (like the ASDA and the PTS) and their individual members. It was possible to search the database for dealers by country, city, specialty or name of the company. The ASDA site content has improved in recent months. A searchable list of stamp dealers who are APS members is available on the APS Web site.
"The ASDA has established the highest
standards of professionalism for the rest of the industry to emulate. As a collecto, you are guaranteed
absolute satisfaction with every transaction. Please send a SASE for a free list of the ASDA dealers
in your area." (from a classified ad at StampFinder.com)

STAMPCATalog Plus is a donationware program. The donationware concept is very simple. You download a copy of STAMPCATalog Plus for a 30 day free evaluation. If you want to keep the program and use it to organize your stamp collections, you make a donation to a recognized charity of $35 (US equivalent) or more and you receive a registration number free. You also receive free documentation, support, upgrades, utilities, additional country and topic listings as available. I will also convert your existing collection databases to work with STAMPCATalog Plus (I hope to provide a free generic converter in the future).

StampFinder has begun a project to create an image catalog which will encompass all philatelic items, whether postage stamps, revenue stamps, or postal stationary. Using the USID numbering protocol, the system will allow stamps to be displayed by country, by topic or by varieties. Individuals interested in supplying images from their collection for this project are invited to contact us at [email protected] for further information.
