The site dedicated to "Dead Country" stamps!

I am Lynn Davidson-Stroh. I formed RASLAD Enterprises in 1986 to sell specialty stamps to discerning collectors of all budget levels. Home is New Mexico, but I travel to 30 major stamp shows a year across the country - from Virginia to California and Wisconsin to Texas!

I still enjoy collecting dead countries. I am thrilled to help someone else complete their own specialty areas. I am happy to pursue wantlists for those hard to find items, particularly for stamps from 1840-1940.

Want Lists

Looking for those hard-to-find items? Our constant travelling and buying allows us to scour the market, looking for items that never make it on to price lists. Many stamps never get listed on websites or price lists because there is already somebody waiting in line for them! Make sure that's you! Let us know what you are looking for.
