Two months after my back surgery I’m starting to feel human again. In the past ten days I’ve gained a tremendous amount of energy and am able to work full time again.
We finished our German area Part III price list which includes Estonia through Poland issues. This list has lots of new specialty items from Marienwerder and Memel. We are just now updating the countries included in this price list on our web site including adding images of the more expensive items. We should have all the new items add by mid-July.
Our next list will be Part 4 of our German area list – mostly Saar and Upper Silesia issues. We acquired a lot of new specialized material from Saar also. We also just acquired the most complete collection of Luxembourg that we have ever had. In addition to being close to complete, the condition throughout is consistently F/VF or better. We hope to start listing some of this collection on our web site very soon.
The new Volume 3 which includes the German states, offices and Germany proper has close to zero price changes again this year. I found literally one or two insignificant price changes.
The only reason to buy this year’s copy is that you lost your current copy. I paid $115 for the new catalog.
MICHEL 2017 Catalogs
The new volumes 1 and 2 of the Michel Specialized Germany catalogs have been issued. I bought my copies from Richard Hummel in Germany. I also acquired my 2016 copy of the Michel Austria Specialized catalog from Herr Hummel . His web site http://www.hummel-buch.de/ can be viewed in English and offers a wide variety of collector supplies and catalogs. So far I
have found his prices fair and his service excellent.
Payment may be made via Paypal or US personal check.

Our Mailing Lists
Periodically we update our mailing list to remove inactive customers. If you have not bought from us within the past 12 months but wish to continue to receive our monthly price lists, please let us know and we will keep you on our mailing list.
If you have a computer but have not visited our web site, you should give it a look. We have many thousands of items listed and also have hundreds of pictures of the more expensive items.

All – Lists for those who collect all areas we stock,
Austria – Lists for Austria and related areas.
Gal – Lists for Germany and all related areas – e.g. states, colonies and occupations.
Germany – Lists for Germany proper, Soviet Zone and DDR only.
