Their small size and fabulous details make old trading stamps perfect to use in art pieces, decoupage, artist trading cards, collages and altered art.

These are small enough to be transformed into earrings, pendants and magnets, too. Check out what these talented Etsy sellers did with trading stamps:

I believe the stamps I'm selling are from the late 1950's and early 1960's. S&H stamps were probably the most well known, often going by the term 'green stamps'.

Please Note: Canadian and American nickels are the same size.

Why not 'Favourite' us while you're here. That way you can find us, again. After all, it's so easy to get lost on Etsy, isn't it?

Etsy has now begun to charge sellers when a customer finds their shop via another site or search engine (Google, Bing, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.). We are forced to pay them 15% of the total order (including taxes and shipping!) on top of all the other fees. As well, if you submit another order over the following 30 days, it, too, will garner this fee. It would be greatly appreciated if, when you come across an ad or listing via any site other than Etsy itself, you do not click on it. Instead, if you would simply cut-and-paste the title into the Etsy search bar or just do a search yourself at Etsy .com to find the item, you would be doing all the small businesses on Etsy a great favour. Thank you so much.
