When a solar eclipse occurs, countries in the Moon's path sometimes commemorate the event by issuing one or more special postage stamps. Below are the eclipse stamps I have collected over the years. If you have extra copies of any different eclipse stamps, I would certainly be interested in purchasing them from you. In return, I will add them to this page with a public acknowledgment of your generosity. Thanks!
