Series 1
Stamps from the State of Israel, 1948-1996
Boxes 1-87

Scope and Content Note

Series 1 is a complete set of stamps of the State of Israel from the period just before independence up to 2002. The uniqueness of this collection is due not only to its completeness, but also to the fact that it contains corners, first day covers, and even sheets for each of the stamps issued. The early sets are very rare and valuable. See Series 5 for additions after Mr. Singer's death.
