About us and our Terms of Sale
Miller's Stamp Company was established by Irving Miller on October 2, 1969 in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Specializing in US stamps from the Classics to the Back of the Book, including Errors, Revenues, Ducks, Confederates, and US Possessions.
In addition to Mint and Used Singles, We also stock Coils, Booklets, Plate Blocks, Sheets, and some Covers. We carry stamps in all grades and conditions from the highest quality possible for the most discriminating collector, to the lower grades for the price shopper. We have more than 3,000 stamps with photos in our "Advanced Collector" section, and that is only a small percentage of what we have in stock. If you don't see what you want send me a short want list. Give us a try. You won't be disappointed!
Second Office After 45 years of growing our business we are forced to open a second office. Our Purchasing and Auction Divisions are now located at 12 Douglas Lane, Suite 8, Waterford, CT 06385. This office is open by appointment only. Our Shipping and Receiving Departments are still located in East Lyme.
Our motto is: "Small profits often repeated." We will not be undersold. If you find a lower price in writing, let me know and I will Beat or Meet the price, guaranteed! A quote by Mark Twain that I live by, "Always do right, this will gratify some and astonish others." MILLER'S a name you can trust, since 1969, where stamps are not just a side line, but our only business.

After 14 days a stamp may not be returned unless it was placed on extension to get a Certificate of Authenticity.

A stamp may not be placed on extension for centering, previously described fault(s), sold as is, or was part of a set or lot that consisted of multiple stamps. If a committee deems the stamp other than as described it may be returned for a full refund. If the purchase price was more than $150 and the stamp did not already have a Cert. The refund will include the cost of the certificate up to $50. If the net purchase price was less than $150, or the stamp already had a certificate the refund will not include the cost of the new cert.
