PSE Set Registry - Benefits

Building collections of stamps can be rewarding and very pleasurable. Participating in the PSE Set RegistrySM program can also be a lot of fun. In addition to the enjoyment of comparing your stamps to the greatest sets of all time, you also receive the following benefits :

Recognition for your stamps. If your stamps are in the top five best "All-Time Finest" sets, your collection will be listed on the first page of the PSE Set RegistrySM. And, if you desire, your name will be listed in the PSE Set RegistrySM for all to see. You have three options in listing the name of your collection: you can use your full name, you can use your initials, or you can simply be an anonymous collector. Also note that while we will list the average grade of your set, we will not list the grades of the individual stamps unless you give us your permission to do so.

All Time Finest Sets. Should you sell your collection, you can choose to remain in the "All-Time Finest" category if your set is at least 90% complete. (There are exceptions to the 90% rule if the set is extremely rare.)

A valuable pedigree. In the philatelic market a pedigree is a contributing factor in the pride of ownership and value of the stamp. Stamps from famous collections such as Robert Zoellner and William Floyd usually command a premium in the marketplace. If you participate in the PSE Set RegistrySM program and your set is 100% complete, ranks in the top five, your set may qualify for the free pedigree service. To confirm that your set qualifies for the free Pedigree Service, contact customer service at setregistry@psestamp.com. Then mail with your stamps a PSE submission form and a printed page from the Set Registry that lists your set in the top five.

Free Grading. We recognize that not every stamp in every important collection has been graded by PSE. In order to encourage participation in the PSE Set RegistrySM program we are offering the following free grading and encapsulation benefits for sets that reach 90% completion:

If the set composition is 1-9 stamps you are entitled to 1 free grading.
If the set composition is 10-24 stamps you are entitled to 2 free gradings.
If the set composition is 25-49 stamps you are entitled to 3 free gradings.
If the set composition is 50-99 stamps you are entitled to 4 free gradings.
If the set composition is 100+ stamps you are entitled to 5 free gradings.

Free gradings are for stamps within the set that has reached 90% completion. All stamps must be submitted at one time. If your set has reached 90% complete and you have not previously received free grading for this set, please contact setregistry@psestamp.com with your name, address and phone number. You will be sent by U.S. mail a submission form to be used exclusively for your free gradings. It is your responsibility to pay for postage and insurance.
