Heraldic collector's items catalogue
In this part of the Heraldry of the World site I try to make as completely as possible a catalogue of heraldic collector's items. This also includes numerous items which are not dealing with civic heraldry as does the main part of the site.
There are, of course, separate catalogues of all the different categories mentioned below. However, none of these deals specifically with heraldry, neither is any of these on-line available.
By lack of proper reference material, this catalogue probably will never be complete, but it is already by far the largest of its kind. Most of the material shown comes from my own collection and a bit from private collectors, who let me scan, or scanned, the material for me. Some images are taken from other sources, which are mentioned appropriately.
Any additions are of course welcome ! See also the Wanted page.
From the Heraldry of the World Foundation collection:
Heraldic stamps (normal postage)
Heraldic cinderellas (non official postage stamps)
Heraldic tobacco cards (cigarette cards)
Heraldic sugar packets and wrappings
From other collections:
During the years we have obtained a number of collections of arms drawn/painted by private persons (not professional heraldic artists). These collections are shown below.
- De Geldere (Dutch municipal arms)
- Perck (European municipal arms)
- Collectie 1 (General designs and Dutch municipal arms)
- Collectie 2 (German and European arms)
- Covers DDR ((former) East German heraldic covers)
- Dutch wooden carvings (Dutch municipal arms)

Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
