The Stamp Collector’s Database for Intel based computers is a full function, high speed, menu driven data base management system for the discriminating philatelist.
The Stamp Collector’s Database has been compared to other philatelic programs on a number of occasions.
It was rated #1 in a review of philatelic software in the American Philatelist
(September 1991) and in The Compulatelist
(July 1992). There have been no other side-by-side comparisons since and in addition, most of the programs reviewed then are no longer available and the software publishers have closed!
The Stamp Collector’s Database contains over 11,000+ US Stamps cataloged by Scott Number and over 5,000 US stamp images. Current 2012 pricing is also included (2013 pricing and the 2013 Annual Updates will be released in April 2013) . The Stamp Collector’s Database allows the collector to keep up-to-date information pertaining to their collection, calculate value total value and print reports.
